#MayVinylChallenge Day 23... Album With A Backstory
The Commodores - "In The Pocket"
While visiting my Uncle in Beaumont, TX, I remember looking through his albums. He took notice as I stopped for "In The Pocket". He told me about The Commodores and their hit song, "Lady (You Bring Me Up)". Through the years, we kept in touch with visits, letters and phone calls. I loved his stories of Egypt...visiting, Giza, King Tut and Sadat. One afternoon, he called and we briefly spoke. I gave the phone to my mother. Minutes later, the line disconnected. That was 1994, we haven't heard or seen him since. My family searched with no leads. Skid Row? Egypt? Name change? Years later, I still think of my Uncle. Imagine my smile and memories as I found "In The Pocket" while crate digging. In my heart, that's my Uncle's album. Along with The Commodores, he introduced me to Blood, Sweat & Tears, Geography, traveling the world and more. Before this post, I hadn't played the album. It sat in a plastic vinyl sleeve on the shelf. Today, that changes. Wherever you are, I'm playing this album for you.
