Oh, Oh, Domino

No one asked, but what was the first "record" I ever bought?  That's the black, round thing with hole in the middle about the size of a half-dollar?  Ricky Nelson's first single, ripping of Fats Domino's "I'm Walkin'."   Must have been, what, 1958?  I am old.  First Ricky then the Fat Man, below. (BTW, the first record bought for me, a 78, was Tony Bennett doing Hank Williams' "Cold, Cold Heart."  Talk about prescient.)
