"My grandparents kept a collection of
old photographs in a shoebox. In my youth, I spent many happy hours looking
through those treasures."Ian.
Shoebox Classics celebrates the best of bygone times in a modern way.
I've just bought the Jack Johnson album 'In Between Dreams' and was stunned to hear the following lyrics sum up the aim of Shoebox Classics so eloquently:-
And no song that I could sing but I can try for your heart
And our dreams and they are made out of real things
Like a shoebox of photographs with sepia-toned loving".
Jack Johnson - 'Better Together'
I hope you stay a while and enjoy.
