“The first single that I bought was ‘Uncle Albert’/‘Admiral Halsey.’

But the first album that I bought was the Spinners’ ‘Pick of the Litter.’ It was on 8-track, and if I remember correctly, it had a hot pink plastic shell. And it had that song ‘All That Glitters Ain’t Gold’ on it. That was my favorite song when I was, oh, however old I was when I bought that.

It was the first album that I ever owned.”
