Alan Lomax: ‘Texas Folk Songs’ (1958)

I’ve been collecting records since I was 12 years old (I’m 56 now..) but this is chronologically the oldest one I own.
How did I get it? I pay a monthly visit to see Phil at The Vintage Record, Annandale. And always find something I never knew was missing from my life til I see it in the racks.
In my younger decades I was very exclusive in my listening taste: only punk, then only metal etc etc etc. Age and experience has widened my ears, allowing me to in recent years explore the wonders of folk and country music.
But there’s been one constant throughout: vinyl, vinyl, vinyl!
