I discovered “Sound It Out” through a random post by a random Facebook friend, and because music is most important to me I did a bit of investigating and instantly was drawn to it. It brought back great memories of a fantastic record store in my hometown: Recycled Sounds, which sadly closed its doors about four years ago. The music, the people, the in-store performances, and the sense of community among the staff and customers who all shared a love of sounds of all genres was a high water mark in my life, and although I’m not nearly as knowledgeable as many, my enthusiasm and admiration for those who make music has never dimmed.
The first and last records I bought:
The first record I bought with my own money … hmmmmm … I believe that would be the 45 of “Joy to the World” by Three Dog Night back in the early 70s.
The most recent vinyl purchase was the album “The Beatles Live at the Star Club in Hamburg.” Interesting that nearly forty years later, the album I just bought is actually older than the first single I bought when I was about nine!
