Music, classic vs. classical

Once one of my brothers went on a campaign around the house to find some music for me. I was 7 or 8 and my brothers and sisters were in their teens. He scraped together my first record collection:

The Monster Mash (45)
Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (45)
Let It Bleed and Goat's Head Soup by the Stones
Inna Godda da Vida by Iron Butterfly (45)
Meet the Beatles

Now's my chance to return the favor-- I just ordered some music for my son, for summer listening, to celebrate the last day of school:

Let it Bleed
Revolver
London Calling

I told my wife I had bought some classic music for our son, but what she heard was classical music.

Did you ever receive the CD I made for you? I felt very suspect when I was writing the address.

Charlie, I got the music thanks so very much!! I am delinquent and feel really bad about it-- I can't find five CDs worth of music that I am happy about to send your way. Tell me are you missing any of the five CDs Johnny Cash recorded with Rick Rubin? That's the only music I have around hear. This state of affairs has turned my son into a Johnny Cash fan!?

Revolver totally works. Let it Bleed and London Calling are pretty sophisticated. Of course, your son is probably very sophisticated. Hi, Charlie.

Yes thanks Papa, he is sophisticated. We asked him what instrument he would choose for taking lessons. He did not hesitate to say clarinet, because that's what Squidward plays.
