Nancy Sinatra, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?
“Let me think… I used to buy singles, you know, 45s. Of course, I remember my dad’s records when LPs first came out. And I was a big Elvis fan, so chances are that it was probably an Elvis album.
“Or it could have been the Everly Brothers. Or it could have been Johnny Mathis or Harry Belafonte. I love those two guys. They were very big when I was a kid. But I don’t know about the very, very first album I bought. I just can’t remember.”
Saturday (April 16) is Record Store Day, and for music fanatics like us, it’s a holiday kinda like Christmas.
