Page two in an informal Q&A with the band. New questions and answers will appear from time to time so please check back...
 

4 - What was the first album or single you remember buying?

Ralph - Raining In My Heart by Slim Harpo.
 
Dwight - The first album was "Big Girls Don't Cry" by The Four Seasons. The first single was "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" by the Tokens.

Michael - The album was “Elvis Presley’s Greatest Hits Volume One.” I got it for my birthday when I was still a kid.  I remember my mother asking me why would I want an album with all those old songs. Even at that age I knew Elvis was the king. I had a single of “Candy Man” by Roy Orbison that I literally wore the grooves out on. I had no clue what the song was about at the time. I just loved the sound of it, especially Roy’s voice.

Butcho - Some of the first singles I remember spinning were "Peppermint Twist" by Joey Dee and the Starlighters, "Be Young Be Foolish" by the Tams, and "Hey Baby" by Bruce Channel.

Willi - My dad had lots of music -- jazz, Dixieland, big band, some gospel like George Beverly Shea, Billy Graham's soloist. An early single I remember buying was by the Athens Rogues when I was in high school. My bud McGhee was in it. When I got my first drum kit, I bought several albums so I could practice to them -- Cream, Herb Alpert TJB, Blood Sweat n Tears, Iron Butterfly, Five Blind Boys of Alabama.
