RECORD IN A CEREAL BOX. I remember getting a tiny record in a cereal box when I was a ten year old. The record was flexible (ah, a floppy disc!) but it played well. And I really liked the song. It was clearly a rock song. I'm surprised my parents let me keep it; but how bad could a song from a cereal box be? The singer had a sometimes haunting, sometimes driving, but always intense voice. I loved the song, "Light My Fire." The group was called "The Doors." It would be years before I learned the voice and personality behind The Doors was that of Jim Morrison. I now know he was perhaps one of the most compelling talents and tragic lives of the rock era.
