“It was a Pete Seeger album, the first album that I ever got. Before that, I used to listen to the radio – a little pink transistor radio that my sister had.

Fats Domino was really the first music I remember hearing. It was ‘Walking to New Orleans,’ and I bought that 45 RPM single.”

Bandleader-singer-guitarist Ray Benson rounds up western swing kings Asleep at the Wheel for a return engagement at The Egg in Albany at 8pm on Friday (November 18). Tix are $29.50.
