1. What was the last CD you purchased?
Bonnie Raitt's newest.
2. Did you like it?
Just started to listen to it, and it hearkens back to her older more blues-oriented sound. I like that a lot.
3. Is it the kind of music you would call your favorite?
Not necessarily. I love opera, and French art songs, and Bach and Mozart and some Stravinsky and some Phillip Glass. A tad eclectic in my tastes? Or just indicative of multiple-personality syndrome? You tell me.
4. What was the first album (CD for you youngsters) you ever owned?
It was vinyl. "Highway 61 Revisited"...classic Bob Dylan, and a rebellion against my poor mother at age 12.
5. And what was your favorite cut from that recording?The one with a thousand and one words that has a refrain that goes "How does it feel? To be on your own, with no direction home?" Perfect for pre-teen angst.
