When I was in town for the 50th I didn't see Ron Clifford so I went by his place of business and left a note. Didn't see Mark Millburn so I went by his house & left a Classic Car Book in his mailbox. I didn't have either a phone number or address for Steve Garrett but I had a model of a Red/White '56 Chevy Bel Air that I was going to give to him, but I didn't see him either, because he was REALLY SICK.

We've had several deaths of classmates this year including STEVE GARRETT, Mary Ann Armstrong's husband,   Kristi Stagg's husband John who was MELINDA Snow & Steve Rich's Brother as well as my own brother BOB BROWN. I saw this the other day & wanted to share it with (ya'll) you all:

THANK YOU BRO. BROWN FOR SHARING THIS NEWS ABOUT CLASSMATES THAT HAVE PASSED ON.  I HOPE YOU ARE HEALING FROM THE PASSING OF YOU BROTHER.

 

I JUST GOT BACK FROM OUR WARD 'CHRISTMAS' SACRAMENT MEETING.  THE MESSAGES WERE ON JOY AND KNOWING YOUR SAVOIR. THE MUSIC WAS VERY INSPIRING. 

 

I WAS MOVED BY YOUR POST BRYAN -  WE ARE GETTING ON IN YEARS AND LIFE IS MENT TO PASS TO THE NEXT 'PHASE' OF OUR 'PROBATION'.  STAY CLOSE TO THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.  HIS ATONEMENT WAS AN ACT OF LOVE THAT WOULD HELP US AT TIME OF LOSS, TROUBLE, SADNESS, TEMPTAION, AND SIN.

 

MAY GOD BLESS US WITH WHAT 'HE KNOWS' IS BEST FOR EACH OF US!  An old friend and peer, Katy (Whitney) Nielson

Happy New Year and may you all have a 'bleesed' year!

Enjoyed the photo.  Happy B-day to all of you who were mentioned in Bro. Brian or is Bro. Dan (Brown) message.  Yes, we are all 69 or about to be 69 years old.  I hope we are all keeping journals of our experiences to share with our family and beyond. 

Living my 69th year and hope I am learning what I was sent here for. 

Kin ye,  Kate (Whitney) Nielson

   The other day when DEE Brown and I were exchange cars, the question came up "What was your FIRST VINYL ALBUM? I remember him having the "Meet The BEETLES," their FIRST album but he says his first was The ANMALS! Although I had joined the COLUMBIA RECORD CLUB with their 10 or 13 FREE Albums, (which I'm still paying for,) I think my first was "Surfin' USA" by the Beach Boys. And thus began the Eternal Conversation about "WHO HAD the BETTER GROUP? The BEACH BOYS, The BEATLES, The ROLLING STONES or Paul Revere & the RAIDERS, The HOLLIES, DAVE CLARK FIVE or HERMAN HERMITS, 5th D?

What is your answer? I still remember Bryant Jr High School Cafeteria SHOUTING MATCHES & FOOD THROWING about the answer! (Win Young's dad said the Beach Boys had better HARMONY...but, the BEATLES had better "Song Quality," what ever that means...

Who was your FIRST 33 1/3 Album? And Why was it the FIRST?

This took a little memory searching, but I first bought Gary Lewis and the playboys album. I can't remember the name of the album but it had "This Diamond Ring" on it. That was a few days ago. Thanks for the memories.

Kate Whitney (Neilson)

I agree with Win Young's father the Beach Boys harmony was better than the bands back then and the Beatles had and have better quality songs and music.  Gary Lewis didn't last long but I liked some of his songs.  My first albam I ever purchased was Surfer Girl - The Beach Boys

 The first albums of the beatles are 'Meet the Beattles  and 'It's A Hard Day's Night'.

LOL!  Brian, does this count as one of those "brain games"  that helps keep the brain exercised and young?  I am amazed at what you all remember.  Each album title someone posts brings back a fond memory.  Thanks, All!

Alpert and the Tiguanna Brass--whipped cream.  Green with a girl wearing a whipped cream dress.  I could buy it again for $100.  Lots of horns is what I remember.  Fun memories.  And of course the Beach Boys were the best.  Why else would one climb the wall at Lagoon to get into the concert?

My first album was ALL SUMMER LONG by the Beach Boys. Carefully setting it on the rear window dash on the ride home, the summer sun warped it so only the last few songs were playable. Crushing defeat. I took it back to Frost's Books to claim it was defective and asked for a replacement. They took pity and only laughed at me instead of throwing me out the door.

In late December of 1963 the Beach Boys preformed two nights at the Terrace Ballroom on Main Street. My Uncle Ranch Kimball was a part owner of the Terrace and Lagoon at the point in time along with Howard Freed's family so we got to go to almost all of the concerts at The Terrace and Lagoon for free. My counsin Jonanthan Kimball who worked for Lagoon and my sister arranged after the concert one of those nights for the Beach Boys to come up to my family's house on H Street and I remember Brian Wilson playing my mother's Steinway and after a song or two, he played a couple of cord's and then they left. A year or so later I remembered those cords the first time I heard "Barbara Ann" on the radio.

I was able to go to almost all of the concerts at the Terrace and Lagoon during High School  and remember seing Sony and Cher when I was in Junior High School. When I was younger my Uncle Ranch introduced me to Nat King Cole and George Shearing and Dave Brubeck.

As far as records, I remember my first 45 records more vividly then I remember my first albums . I think " Big John" and " Tie me Kangroo Down Boys" were the first and I certainly remember Dylan and "Like a Rolling Stone"

I don't remember my first album but I had Rubber Soul, Meet The Beatles, and ALL The Beach Boys Albums.  I do remember after hearing Kathy Peterson (KP) play Dave Brubeck's Take Five at an assembly that I went to work in the ZCMI record department and bought all the Dave Brubeck albums I could find (on my dad's employee charge card - that's a whole other story!) and got to see him perform at the old Hotel UTAH.  I have loved music my entire life and I have loved reading all these musical memories!

Crit,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the groups that came to LAGOON & to The Terrace. Many of our "Musical Memories" are tied to those two places....

I remember having Grace Urry get me an early album of Joni Mitchell before it ever came out publicly.

She knew someone in the industry and I loved her music.  I think it was Hal Cannon that brought her up

to the U of U Union building for a concert and there were only about 25 people that came.  She played solo

with her guitar and actually forgot a few of her songs part way through,  Judy Collins had recorded some of her songs and after Woodstock, she really took off.  That was  fun to think back on the experience.

I think the very first "LP" that got played in our house was The Kingston Trio and that was well before high school days. I vividily remember the first "stereo" console hi-fi Dad bought but there weren't many stereo records. I had grown up in the summer months in the 50's and early 60's at our fishing resort in the moutains where there was a juke box in the restaurant and my folks had a huge collection of old 78's and somewhat newer 45's that had been in the machines over the years. Some of them were pretty worn out - Chubby Checker's "The Twist" was so overplayed it was actually annoyingly scratchy. All of the classic country acts were in there too, not to mention Elvis, Pat Boone and Roy Orbison. Before my time at East, we had sold the resort and moved on to Beatles, Beach Boys, Peter Paul and Mary and yes, even Bill Cosby records that we had to buy.

I had a similar experience regarding Judy Collins-we (Ann Wilkinson & I) thought we were going to one of her concerts and JONI MITCHELL came out and sang most of her songs. It was still a good concert, not just what we expected...in fact IF she had never stated her name...we wouldn't have known the difference! Both were good lookin' BLONDES with GREAT VOICES! ;0)

My first album.  I was in 7th grade.  Rick Rowley, a friend from junior high and I went downtown to meet Merillee Holding and Mindy Miller and go to a movie.  I don't remember the movie but I do remember Merillee and I held hands. After, we went to the record store and I bought the album. I liked their version of "House of the Rising Sun".
