Rory Block, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?
“No, I don’t remember the first album that I bought, but I remember the first one that I was ever given, which is almost the same thing as buying one. It was called ‘Really the Country Blues,’ and it was given to me by Stefan Grossman in 1964. And I wore it out.
That was really the very beginning of my interest and love of country blues. After hearing ‘Really the Country Blues,’ I’ve never turned back because it was an immediate love affair, an instant click. This was the music for me.”
