Elana James, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?
“Oh, yeah. I think it was the dB’s. Have you ever heard of them?
They had a song called `Amplifier,’ and I used to love that song. Someone played it for me once, and I thought it was so cool.
I still think about that song a lot. It’s so doleful and full of pathos … in a great way, I mean.”
You can catch Elana and the Hot Club of Cowtown in the spotlight at Club Helsinki in Great Barrington, Mass. on Saturday, June 20.
