Your parents’ music. It can shape your own taste in various capacities. Or it can give you something to rebel against. Sometimes, it can be both. Either way, the music your parents put on when you were a kid isn’t just a soundtrack to your childhood; it’s a part of the tapestry of their personalities, of what they value. And that in turn helps to tell you something about yourself, as well. These threads are a part of Graeme’s connection to Anne Murray’s 1978 record Let’s Keep It That Way, an album bought by has parents on the basis of “as seen on TV”. But, what did the Deeper Cuts trio think of this album and its unbridled excursion into MOR country pop, as well as (on many levels!) into Canadian passive aggression, albeit an affectionate one? There’s only one way to find out, kids: have a listen!
