    Chopin By Starlight: The Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra - I love the music of Chopin. This is one of the first LPs I remember from my parent's record cabinet. I was listening to it regularly before I even started 1st grade.

Oklahoma! was in our record cabinet as far back as I can remember and it's still my favorite movie musical. The characters are so close to home. I knew the words to the numbers from this show before I was six years old and remember singing "Many A New Day" in the tub. I was fabulous even then!

Romantic Strings Play Dancing in The Dark and 23 Other Favorites Readers Digest | eBay - This double LP had some beautiful music. I remember listening to this on a lot of long summer afternoons during the hours when television was sort of boring.

I remember a sunny, blustery-cold Sunday afternoon in late February. I was in the 4th or 5th grade. We were visiting friends in Dallas and the two girls had this album. I fell in love with Kyu Sakamoto that day. Something in his voice, his appearance, and the song "Sukiyaki" invoked a kind of lonely longing I had never experienced before and have seldom since.

Sweet Georgia Brown - The Billy Tipton Trio - Interesting about Billy Tipton. When I was little I would take this record out of the cabinet just to look at the picture. My sister and I always tried to draw it and we also liked striking the pose.
