      what was yours?

      The first piece of "furniture" my parents bought was a console "hi-fi" (years before I was born), so I grew up listening to a lot of vinyl like Sam Cooke, Roger Miller, Webb Pierce, Dean Martin, and other things.

      I had accumulated a lot of 45's, but the first 33 album I bought and paid for myself was Abbey Road.

          Todd included a post card in "A Wizard, A True Star" and asked fans to fill it out and return it, promising to "do something" with the names.

          He took them all and used them to make a poster of his face, which he included in the "Todd" album. I can still find my name on it, along with several of my buddies' names.

            I remember that poster. I used to have one, but that's one of those things that got lost in some move many years ago.

            My name wasn't on it; I think I may have purchased "Wizard" after "Todd" was released, but I really don't remember.

            They don't make 'em like Todd anymore...

              -Years Ago by the Statler Brothers. Are there any Statler Brothers fans out there? They are my favorite. I grew up in a very strict religious home- Wesleyan Methodist, and we weren't allowed to listen to any music other than albums made by the church. When I was about 15, a friend bought me a Statler Brothers album- The Best of the Statler Brothers Rides Again, Vol II. Amazingly enough, my parents let me keep it, and even listen to it! I loved their music, and soon bought more. Today, I have app 30 of their CDs, and several DVDs, including their Farewell Concert. My wife bought me one of Don Reid's (The lead singer) books- You Know It's Christmas When... for Christmas, and even managed to get Don to sign it along w/ a short note. COOL!

                    Of course, Buddy Holly plays a prominent role in the song, but that only scratches the surface. Check out this site as an example:

                    http://oldies.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?site=http://www.understandingamericanpie.com

                    There are many other similar sites on the web, each with their own interpretation.

                        and Tommy can you hear me?!?

                        I remember seeing the musical Tommy when it first came out on Broadway in the 70's




                        Peter Frampton is now a suburban dad in Cincinnati. He lives in Indian Hill, a seriously upscale neighborhood, with his wife and kids. There was an article about him in this morning's Cincinnati Enquirer with an updated photo. Long gone are the flowing locks. Below is a link to the article:

                          The first album I bought with my allowance was the first Peter, Paul, and Mary album. After that, it was everything by the Beatles. I'd buy the Beatles albums the day they hit the racks. My first eight-track was "Breakfast in America" by Supertramp.

                          I bought cassette tapes for the player in my old VW Rabbit. Stuff like "Let it Bleed" and "Exile on Main Street", but also Motown compilations. We lived in a neighborhood where kids would regularly go through cars at night looking for stuff to steal. You'd just leave your car unlocked to avoid having your window broken. Whenever I could tell that my car had been searched (door left leaning in the frame), I'd find all my cassettes neatly stacked on the floor. Nobody else wanted 'em.

                            It is interesting to read all the different responses to this album question, you can see somewhat the age of a person. Plus, you all are way beyond me, such wonderful interests and experiences!

                            As I have said in another post, my parents did not let me listen to any popular music, and being as it was their stereo (a really bad one at that, never had a needle that worked), I was a bit behind in the popular music thing.

                            I did buy a 45 for music class, really, we had to do an analysis of the lyrics- "No Time Left for You" by ??? you see? I am still clueless.

                            My dad brought home from a conference a free "Tapestry" album by Carole King (I still LOVE her) and "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by S&G so I guess they were my first, a CCR album was there too
                            I grew up listening to Tom Leher (sp?) and barbershop, man, kinda sad [|)]

                            I have made sure my kids explore all music ,and I must say, I highly enjoy what they listen to.

                                  First concert besides teen garage bands was Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

                                  But of the 200+ I've seen (Stones, Dead, Elvis, Beach Boys, Floyd, Zepp) they all pale in comparison to seeing Springsteen Live in concert. I've seen him close to 50 times, some as long as a 5+hour marathons, its just his band, with no opening act. I've seen shows with 6-7 after a 4 hour show some encores while the roadies are tearing down the stage.

                                  Once you've seen his smaller intimate shows, as opposed to the later stadium shows it's no comparison.

                                        Hello All,
                                        Semperfimom, I have a Smother Brothers album and of course it counts. The Purple Onion, ahhh, far out. It
                                        was a legendary place to visit for this poor, country boy from Va.. I never made it there except through albums.
                                        I have one of Pat Paulsens playing at the Ice House.

                                          Semperfimom, I have a Smother Brothers album and of course it counts. The Purple Onion, ahhh, far out. It
                                          was a legendary place to visit for this poor, country boy from Va.. I never made it there except through albums.
                                          I have one of Pat Paulsens playing at the Ice House.

                                          I have a DVD of one (I believe it's of their last such concert) of those concerts- The Statler's Happy Birthday, USA! Actually, they stopped doing the Fourth of July concerts in 1989, I believe it was.

                                          >My hope is one day that their harmonies will be be appreciated by music historians as well as by the public.

                                          AMEN, brother! (Or sister) Sorry, I'm not sure of your gender- I guess I'm too new here to know that.

                                          EDITED- "Poor country boy" DUH!!- I guess it was too late last night when I posted this, or perhaps it was the beverages I had consumed, but I somehow missed the country boy part! Sorry about that!

                                          Their harmony and talent is certainly deserving of the appreciation and notoriety that seems to have eluded them! They somehow seemed to slip just under the radar of the recognition and awards that they certainly deserved! They won awards time and again that were voted on by the fans, but when it came to the awards voted on by the country music association's "powers that be", they got skipped over far too many times!

                                            Of course, Buddy Holly plays a prominent role in the song, but that only scratches the surface. Check out this site as an example:

                                            There are many other similar sites on the web, each with their own interpretation.

I still love when "American Pie" comes on the radio. Not because of some hidden meaning behind it, I just think it is a really fun song to sing!

                                                  As for a good musical mystery, I am much more interested in who was the subject/target in Carly Simon's "You're So Vain". The experts say it is most likely Warren Beatty, but as far as I know, Ms. Simon has never revealed who the person is.

                                                    As for the subject of "you're So Vain", there are a few ideas about that. Warren Beatty is one, James Taylor in another seeing as though they were once married. Mick Jagger is a third, but he sings background vocals on the song, so maybe not. Supposedly Ms. Simon told one person and they are not telling. I refer you to a book I saw the other day about music and lyric and rumors in the music industry. I'm not sure about the title but it goes something like this:" Is the Elton John song' Tiny Dancer about Elton's _____. I don't know if this is appropriate for the site. If not, the powers that be may delete it. It was an interesting book though!!
