The Vinyl Beat: Roots Music and Beyond!
The first song I can remember hearing was “All I Have To Do Is Dream” by the Everly Brothers and the first album I actually bought was Here They Come by Paul Revere & the Raiders. Yes, I’m dating myself. I didn’t start collecting records until college, when I’d go the Alameda flea market with $5 and come back to the dorm with a stack of scratched records. Over the years I expanded and upgraded my collection and got involved with Amoeba when the S.F. store opened in 1997. It’s been a pretty exciting thirteen years.
