PHILLIP RAULS PHOTO 2 PAGE EARLY YEARS
"Early in my career as a record promoter I adopted the slogan of 'Promoting Music Means Promoting People.' Those words expressed my heartfelt passion for the music business and love for advancing the careers of recording artists. At first my goals were simple whereas if any of the artist I promoted really hit the big time, then perhaps I wouldn't have to get a real job."
"In this day and age of documentation and certification, two time capsules that always fascinated me are the process of recorded music and the frozen images displayed on a photograph. Both are remarkable technologies. Here we are in the 21st Century and continue to appreciate events that happened years ago. Being the son of a career librarian, I learned at an early age the importance of preservation of artifacts that capture sound, images and preception. After years of relocating and finally settleing on a tranquil roost, I rummanged through dozens of dusty containers that were stored in my attic and garage only to find these classic photographs along with collectable memorabilia. And now through the advent of the internet, we can all view these treasures. I hope you enjoy them." Phillip Rauls
