James Keelaghan, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?
“I would have to say that it was probably either a solo Liam Clancy album or the John Denver album, ‘Poems, Prayers and Promises.’ It was one of those two, but I can’t quite nail it down.
Pretty early on, I was also listening to Bruce Cockburn, Jesse Winchester and a lot of Irish traditional stuff. And, of course, I had my Dylan phase, where I was really obtuse and oblique.
Each year still brings a few new things across my path. I think that influence is a thing that never stops.”
