Rosanne Cash, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?

Rosanne Cash

“I believe my first LP that was all mine was ‘Meet the Beatles.’ It changed my life, and I scratched it to death. Then followed many albums that I asked my parents to buy for me, mostly Beatles.

When we mastered ‘Seven Year Ache,’ it was the first time I had seen a master disc cut on the lathe. We mastered it a few days after John Lennon died, and in the matrix of the mother disc, I scratched, ‘Goodbye, John.’ The first 250,000 copies of that album have the message in the matrix. That was real record-making.

But now that I think about it, the first record that I paid for with my own money was Thunderclap Newman. ‘Something in the Air.’ Remember that one?”

Singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash brings her band to The Egg in Albany at 8pm on Saturday (February 27), in support of her latest album, “The List.” Jenny Scheinman opens the show.
