“Vinyl, vinyl…everywhere!”

“Growing up surrounded by music meant libraries of vinyl. From Grandpa Vic’s Stride era piano albums thru swing, big band, be bop, blues, to the latest ’70s release. My father bought mr for my 8th birthday Eddie Cochran’s The 25th Anniversary Album—double vinyl with photos and biography etc. That was the true moment I realized the importance of music on vinyl. If I wasn’t in school, I was in my bedroom playing Eddie Cochran day in day out.

Through that record I started collecting all the ’50s greats—Little Richard, Buddy Holly, Sam Cooke, and Elvis etc. I would try to emulate the singing, dance moves…I was besotted! My brother would be cranking Nina Simone to Genesis upstairs, and I’d be dancing to Lloyd Price’s “Stagger Lee.”

Over the years the collections of vinyl grew and always stayed in the family from move to move, mostly in my brothers house. When I moved to New York in 1992 I had no vinyl but bought a record player as soon as I found an apartment.

In the shared laundry/trash room someone threw out some records. I looked through and found Roberta Flack’s First Take. Wow. My love for vinyl started over again! From record stores to antique shops—collecting again—Duke Ellington Live at Newport, Django, Billie Holiday etc. Smokin’ by Humble Pie.

The sound of vinyl is unsurpassed for me. This year I’m hoping to release my latest album on vinyl…it would be a dream come true.”
