Mad Lucas

In 1995 I walked into Recycled Sounds and this song was playing. It became a favorite. I was in transitional period of my life. I just graduated high school the year before, I was a father, I was experimenting with LSD, etc, Paryting all the time, and fed up with the “Rap” life. “Skaters” or “Grunge” kids were introducing me to a lifestyle that made me actually feel comfortable in my own skin. It was so refreshing I didn’t know how to act, so I didn’t. I just allowed myself to be myself.

Anyways, last week I played this song. Then this weekend we just saw “Her” and it was playing in the film.

I don’t remember how the desire to try crack came up, but I had easy access to some. I was storing crack in my parents ceiling for a friend who paid me 100 a month. That night, I must have drove home, and drove back then to sell crack to my friends back at his place and that’s when he put in Otis Redding. I’ve heard his music before, but couldn’t think where, then I nailed it, “Dream a Little Dream Of Me”. Some 80’s romantic comedy where they play “I’ve Got Dreams To Remember” which was playing right now. I was an instant fan. And not just because I was smoking crack. I was a music connoisseur of all genres. At this particular time I was in a 60’s/70’s soul/oldies phase. I hunted songs down. I don’t even remember how I did it without the internet back then, but I did. Anyways, this didn’t need hunting down. I went out and bought the double-disc of hits and the B-sides/Alternate takes disc right away. Continue reading “Otis Redding Was Playing The First Time I Did Crack”
