Gary Puckett, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?


“Yeah, it was Elvis.

I can’t remember what the title of the album was, but I know that you’d recognize it if you saw it. It was the one that had kind of a yellow background with a shot of Elvis from the top of his shoulders up, and he was sort of turned to the side.

It had songs like ‘When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold Again’ and ‘Old Shep.’ That was a great record, and I remember it well except to the title, which is now stubbornly escaping me.

My folks had recently bought one of those new hi-fi cabinet systems. I don’t think it was stereo. And I remember sitting in front of that thing listening to Elvis sing his tunes.”

Gary Puckett steps into the spotlight at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, Mass. on Friday, July 24.
