An Odd Boy : Mr. Love

“It’s the music Mr Love,” I said, feeling slightly anxious. “I hope you don’t mind – but I don’t know what it is. I’ve never heard that music before and . . . and . . . I like listening to it. What is that music, please?”
He smiled. “It’s . . . Blues,” he replied, beaming at me. “It’s from America. That is why . . . you have never heard it before.”
I asked him if I would be able to hear it somewhere and he replied “People don’t listen to music like this in England.” Then he laughed quietly, “It’s a little too . . . lively . . . yes . . . too lively.”
