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.
Tommy Dorsey Favorites- The Pied Pipers - I was listening to this LP before I started school. I thought this guy was so handsome and the lady looked like a woman who went to our chuch named Doris Brown.
I don't remember how or when I started liking Brenda Lee but Daddy gave me this LP for Christmas when I was in the second grade and I wore it out. This is a fine album from a fine artist. Owen Bradley knew what he was doing.

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.
When I was ten or eleven I had no idea who Nat King Cole was. Daddy brought this LP home after finding it somewhere. He would listen to it when he came home for lunch. I was playing it for myself when in the fifth grade. I haven't heard it in years but sometimes I'll sing the entire album to myself. A beautifully atmospheric theme album lushly orchestrated by Gordon Jenkins, it is one of my all time favorites.
