    OK, I loved the chord progression in "Could It Be Magic" until I realized he ripped it off from Chopin.

    He was better then.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    I started buying 45's around 58-ish, when 77 Sunset Strip premiered... Kooky, Lend Me Your Comb. The B-side was theme of the show.

    My older sister used to listen to Saturday Night Fever and the Grease soundtrack. Unfortunately, I know the lyrics to albums that I have no interest in ever owning or listening to...

    Nothing to be embarrassed about. In addition to listening to lots of 60's & 70's rock, my parents played a lot of Manilow & Neil Diamond 8-tracks around the house in my childhood.

    Now I don't feel so bad about my first album being Puppy Love by Donny Osmond.

    Man, I still have mine.

    First album I ever bought with my own $$ was the Moody Blues "A Question of Balance".

    I have the original Velvet Underground album with the Andy Warhol banana-cover, unpeeled.

    It's in a safety-deposit box along-with other vinyl treasures, bootlegs included.

    If you bought that Velvet Underground record in 1967, itís probably worth several hundred dollars at least.

    I have a Japanese copy with an unpeeled banana cover, but itís certainly a re-issue from much later than 1967.

    Aye, lad. 50-years on. I never unpeeled it because I already suspected Warhol would be 'something special' eventually.
