“I used to try to listen my way under my skin, but it turned out that listening was my skin. Listening to records was not just something I did, it was who I was. Not a day passed, for years, that I didn’t spend hours sitting in front of my stereo or burrowing into my Walkman, learning my way around a sound–Coltrane’s, Steely Dan’s, the Carter Family’s, Duke Ellington’s, Rakim’s.”
– Michael Robbins, Equipment For Living, p. 10.
