This record is one cup of coffee and 15 refills. This record is driving down the Garden State Parkway listening to Springsteen Live at The Main Point 1975, Disc 1. This record is sitting on the porch in Asbury Park watching an American flag fly across the street. This record is two packs of cigarettes and a bottle of Coke. This record is two slices of pizza on a broken heart. This record is using your coat for a pillow and your sweater for a blanket. This record is a hardwood floor that sounds good with your ear pressed up close at night. This record is in the basement dreaming of Spring. This record is the number you call that keeps on ringing. This record is a neon sign, a bottle cap in the sand, a post card you keep meaning to send, an imaginary letter from an imaginary lover. This record is that kid who always seemed to have something special about him, the one who would call you up at 3am to grab a cup of coffee, the one who just wanted to stay up all night and talk about The Replacements and the Clash. This record is love and despair and salvation, life and death and American rock and roll. This is Sammy Kay.
