Recalling a childhood discovery

Do you remember what happened to first time you played an album at 45 speed?

Greatest record album of all time?

Do you have a nomination?

Do you give a rip that others might scoff?

Recorded at Farragut in 1965

Anyone still have a copy of this?

What was the first LP you ever bought?

Here's a picture of the album that was my first. From what I understand, a few other kids also purchased this record.

I'd say it has stood the test of time. Better perhaps than my first .45 — “Surfin' Safari”/ “409” by the Beach Boys. (I liked them fine, but they would soon prove they could do much better.) Not sure why I picked that, because I remember going to Woolworth's with the intention of buying a copy of “Monster Mash.”

No mystery about why we bought “Meet The Beatles!”
