|That's how old Giant Steps is today.
How's that possible? 25 years. Giant Steps wasn't the first Boos album that I heard (I'm a wake up kid) and I don't think that it's even my favourite by them, but it's amazing and quite unique in so many ways.
I haven't listened to Giant Steps in its entirety for quite a while, but tonight I'm going to play it and probably feel all nostalgic again and think of the past & the future and friends who are no longer here, and maybe have a little drink.
It took me about twenty years of my life until I noticed those giraffes.
