"One of the first records I ever owned"

This is one of the first records that I ever owned. It's was purchased for me by my father @ Sears, Roebuck and Company. My memory tells me I received it for Christmas in 1975, but it very well may have been for my 6th birthday.

The LP seen in the picture above is not a photo of my copy. Mine is much more worn than that. I played the HELL outta that thing on my plastic record player. I remember Paper Lace's "The Night Chicago Died" being my favorite jam on the album, while BTO's "Takin' Care of Business", Ray Stevens' "The Streak", and Redbone's "Come and Get Your Love" were the other tunes that made me jump around my room like an imbecile. Ahhhhh, youth.

Anyway, below is the full track listing. - Ace:)
