Bettye LaVette, What Was the First Record You Ever Bought?
“‘Rockin’ Robin.’ I thought that was the best-sounding song I’d ever heard in my entire life. I guess I was 11.
It’s interesting that you say ‘bought,’ because we had a jukebox in our house, so for many years I didn’t have to buy any records. All the popular records were on the jukebox. It was so pretty. My family didn’t know that everything old was going to be new again, so it just went by the way.”
NOTE: We here at Nippertown.com are very excited about this concert, and we’re giving away a pair of tix for the show. Just go here for details…
