1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … It’s with a good dose of embarrassment that I admit that the first record I ever bought (a 45 single) was “Snoopy vs. the Red Baron” by the Royal Guardsmen. However, I can redeem myself by disclosing that the first LP I purchased was “Led Zeppelin II” – one of my favorites that I played to its slow and scratchy demise. I’ve never replaced it in CD, but I should – it still holds up (in my humble opinion). I’m still a fan of Robert Plant and his recent work with T Bone Burnett and the revival of Band of Joy!
