Albums That Had a Major Influence on My Musical Career and Tastes

Since no one has asked me, I will identify some of the LPs which were an influence on my musical career and tastes.

Let’s begin with The Essential Gene Krupa, an album my parents bought me for Christmas in 1963 when I showed an inclination for playing the drums. It includes his signature tune, “Sing, Sing, Sing”, and many others like “Let Me Off Downtown” and “Drum Boogie”. I played it for hours and I still have it.

Oh, BTW, I received another album that same Christmas, Beatlemania, by a new group from Liverpool, England. I really liked “I Saw Her Standing There.”
