1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … Nirvana – Nevermind. That was based off the recommendations of my friends. That album blew me away. I was in fifth grade & certainly had never heard anything like that before. Another album that really sticks out in my mind is Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water. That was the first album I really felt an uncontrollable urge to hunt down and find, after hearing the song “The Boxer” on the radio in high school. That song holds a special place in my heart to this day.
