Doc Watson, What Was the First Record Album You Ever Bought?
“No, I really don’t remember the first album. I do remember some early 78s that I bought. One especially I remember because I accidentally broke it before I got home with it, and so I had to go back and get another one the next Saturday.
It was a 78 of Roy Hall and the Blue Ridge Entertainers. One side of it was a fiddle tune, ‘Natural Bridge Blues,’ and the other side was ‘Don’t Let Your Sweet Love Die.’
I had heard it on the radio – the DJs would play it … and I had to have me one of those.”
The legendary guitarist Doc Watson steps into the spotlight at The Egg in Albany at 7:30pm on Sunday. He’ll be joined by guitarist Richard Watson, banjo player David Holt and bassist T. Michael Coleman. Tix are $34.50.
