Be Thankful For What You Got

i realized i have been buying vinyl for 20 years. Collection probably hit 15k at one point, but that included doubles, triples and a box of 50 or so of William DeVaughn's "Be Thankful For What You Got" - with that green Roxbury label. Great record. Great mantra. An even better one is offered by DJ Bunny Ears: "Do what you can, with what you have, in the time you have, in the place that you are." I share this meesage with the musicians I consult with each week. Don't wait around for the big break to arrive. Keep doing what you do and find your niche. Music should be used to sell OTHER parts of an artist that can't be duplicated.
