Growing up there were two ways to discover music and purchase albums. The first was record stores, which as a teenager I spent many afternoons. The second was through Columbia House. Columbia House used to create an insert that featured a catalog of albums along with stamps of those album covers. If you joined the club you got to choose 10 albums, and then you would get a new album every month in the mail. I picked my 10 and mailed the form in, I also joined for both of my sisters. I was around 10 at the time, so needless to say when 30 albums arrived in the mail I had a lot of explaining to do. I think my new library was probably worth whatever punishment happened at the time. Anyway, when my first record arrived it was like Christmas, I tore open the sleeve and discovered the Eagles, The Long Run. After hearing the opening notes of the Long Run I became an Eagles fan for life. I just hoped Columbia House had stamps for all of the other Eagles Albums. Almost 40 years later I am revisiting the Eagles Long Run. I started by embroidering rayon thread in a spiral pattern to emulate the album, I then embroidered the album title in metallic silver thread. As a final touch I added one of my favorite lyrics from the song In the City “Somewhere out there on that horizon, Out beyond the neon lights, I know there must be somethin' better, But there's nowhere else in sight” The lyrics are created as an appliqué stitched through the album using metallic black fabric.
