“The first album I ever bought? Hmmm, it was probably a B.B. King album. Either a B.B. King or a Muddy Waters album.

“You know, when albums first came out, they were collections of songs that had been released on 45s. And I already had all of those, but I bought the albums anyway, so the old record player wouldn’t have to flip through a dozen 45s. And then sometimes they’d put one new song on it to make sure that people would buy it.

“I’m sure it was a B.B. King or Muddy album that I had first. If I’m not mistaken, I’m quite sure it was a B.B. King album.”

Blues guitar great Buddy Guy teams up with one of his mentors, the legendary B.B. King, for a double-bill at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel on Thursday, August 27.
