Q & A session with Jenny Mason – April 2011

Pickwick Pops : What was the first record you ever bought?

Jenny Mason : The first album that I bought was Stevie Wonder’s ‘Up-Tight Everything’s Alright’.
I was into black soul music and Tamla Motown big time.
The first single, I can’t remember exactly, but I do know that it was a Beatles record. Probably their first one out I suspect (Love Me Do). I was and still am a big Big fan.
John, being the genius that he is, was my favourite.
