What was the first recorded music you bought?
Beatles VI from the Capitol Record Club. I got 11 for one cent, but the one I paid for was that one. My sisters, neighbor and I lipsynched to this one. The others: Beatles’ Second Album, Beatles ’65, Something New-the Beatles, Best of herman’s Hermits, Daydream-Lovin’ spoonful, Big hits from England and the USA, Goldfinger-Billy Strange. I forget the rest.

What was the last?
David Bromberg – Wanted: Dead or Alive. It features a song called “The Holdup”, which also appears on an earlier album, written by Bromberg and some guy named George Harrison.. This version, backed by members of the Grateful Dead, has a mariachi break in the middle.

Quite possibly Seals & Crofts, Nov 12, 1971 with the Okie. Love makes you do strange things.

Sean Lennon, April 10, 2007. I even know his birthday: October 9, 1975.

Which is cooler? — Vinyl? CD? Cassette? 8-track?
Vinyl is definitely “cooler”. I never owned an 8-track. Most of my music is on CD.

I'm a librarian. I hear music, even when it's not being played. I used to work at a comic book store, and it still informs my life. I won once on JEOPARDY! - ditto.
