My first-ever review.
In 1975, when I was not yet 21, I asked Herbie Aronoff, the entertainment editor of the Montreal Gazette, to let me be a music critic. He sent me to Place-des-Arts that night to review a Murray McLauchlan concert. I had to come back to the Gazette office and write to space and deadline on a typewriter. That review, the first of thousands, is now available on the Google news archive.
