1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … A Patsy Cline album. My dad was a hillbilly from West Virginia. When I was a little girl, he would play his guitar, and I would sing Patsy songs. When we would go to visit family in West Virginia, he would show me off. I remember singing at the “after funeral” party for my Grandmother when I was 12 years old. That party lasted three days. Those hillbillies really knew how to celebrate someone’s life.

Led by singer-drummer Penny Knight, here the band kicks out a pair of tunes – “He’s a Faker” and “Jump Start My Heart” – that Real George captured live in 1984 at Easter Seals’ Parties in the Park. The free concerts were held in Albany’s West Capitol Park every Wednesday throughout the summer months:
