Tommy Malone, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?

TommyMalone“I’m embarrassed to admit to the first album I bought, but I might tell you the second one. Actually, I remember the first three albums that I bought.

The first one was … no, I can’t even say it.

Well OK, it was the Electric Prunes. The second one was ‘High Tides and Green Grass’ by the Rolling Stones, and the third one was ‘Talking Book’ by Stevie Wonder. That first one is pretty embarrassing, but they did have a radio hit, though – ‘I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night.’

I was pretty young, but it was an exciting time. I loved it. I remember the excitement of going out to get the new record, and just during the past couple of years, I started collecting vinyl again, as a matter of fact. I just love it. I still prefer the sound of vinyl.”

Singer-guitarist Tommy Malone and the rest of his bandmates in the subdudes roll into The Egg in Albany for a concert on Saturday (December 5).

    I KNOW! “Too Much To Dream” is one of my favorite songs. It’s interesting and weird seeing what other peoples’ compasses of cool are.

    One of my all-time fave Albany bands, early 80’s immortals Real Danger, used to do a killer cover of “Too Much to Dream…”. Their female singer was hot.. and could really sing too!

  4. Hey, TL. Whaddaya mean “was hot”? She’s still hot.

    Sorry Greg I stand corrected… “is” not “was” and “can” still sing not “could”.. just treading carefully…
