Jerry Douglas, What Was the First (Christmas) Record You Ever Bought?
“I’m not sure what the first one I ever bought was, but the first one I remember listening to was the Gene Autry record with “Rudolph, The Red Nosed-Reindeer” on it. I’m sure of that.
The first one that I bought – if it wasn’t the Ventures one – was probably the Nat King Cole record. I’ve bought that one several times, and that just seems to me the ultimate Christmas memory-conjuring record.”
In support of his new Christmas album, “Jerry Christmas,” award-winning dobro master Jerry Douglas leads his band into The Egg in Albany on Friday (December 11) with special guest vocalists Maura O’Connell and John Oates (of Hall & Oates).
