Now I need to find him a picture book about Harry Belafonte. I've played him the music, and he likes it, but books seem to be the way into Trooper's heart. We used to play one of Belafonte's tapes all the time when I was a kid, and now that I'm grown I really appreciate that my parents exposed us to different things. At the time, it seemed perfectly normal. I guess I assumed that everybody had a Harry Belafonte tape just like everybody had The Beach Boys (didn't they?), but now I'm pretty sure that wasn't true.
What about you? What kinds of music do you or could you listen to in order to stretch your world view?
