DAY 23 - A SONG FROM THE FIRST CONCERT I ATTENDED

This is Day #23 of 30 SONGS IN 30 DAYS and Day #13 of 30 TRUTHS IN 30 DAYS. 

The year was 1969 and it was winter.  I had gone downtown to purchase tickets for the James Taylor/Carole King concert while it was 25 below zero.  By the time I got home I was just about frozen, but I had tickets in hand for my first concert.  That's all that mattered! 

TRUTH #13 - Nothing in life comes without a price or sacrifice.

  1. 25 below zero. Wow.
    I don't know that I've ever seen what young James Taylor looked like. Thank youuuu.

    1. Yep! It was a bit nippy and it's what I'm going to write about next on HANDPRINTS IN THE ATTIC. Yes, he actually had hair during those years!

  2. It must have been a good one because I really don't remember who I went with or much about the concert itself! LOL

  3. Mine was Jethro Tull, probably in 1982.
