What was your first record?

The first record I ever owned: ‘At the Hop’ by Danny and the Juniors ( just listened to it, and it made me get up and dance!)

The first record I ever bought myself: ‘Meet the Beatles’



I remember playing a 45rpm of Sixteen Tons by Tennessee Ernie Ford.

Over and over...

I think my folks were initially relieved when my paper route allowed me to then invest in a 45 of The Rolling Stones HonkyTonk Woman, and Donovan's Hurdy Gurdy Man- which I believe the flip side of was Atlantis. So now I played them,

Over and over.... 

My first album was actually three all at once. Got them as a 12th birthday present (August, 1970):

1. Grateful Dead, Workingman's Dead

2. Soundtrack from Woodstock

3. Jimi Hendrix, Band of Gypsies
