It’s funny how sometimes you lose track of an artist. As a rule, I buy pretty much every new release by the musicians in my collection, the exceptions being those artists who proved to have only one or two strong albums among many. But in those cases, I usually came to that conclusion after trying to keep up with their output and realizing I was seeing diminishing returns.
Sometimes, though, I’ll be right there with a band or singer and then somehow lose sight of them. I owned and loved every Dar Williams album, for example, when one day I realized she’d released two more records without me even knowing.
