With all the strides that we have made in recording and producing music, it’s good to watch and learn how Grown Folks Music was made as often as you can. The tools utilized for baking(making music) may change over time but grandma’s pound cake recipe still uses the same ingredients for the same result: a great cake. Enjoy!
