Trey Anastasio, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?
“It was the Jackson 5 album with the song, ‘Do the Funky Chicken.’
I remember my bedroom at the time and my record player. I think i was probably in the third grade, maybe fourth grade.
I remember some singles, too. I think I bought ‘The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald’ on a single.
I also remember this single by the Dave Clark Five called ‘Over and Over.’ My little record player went to 78 RPM, and that one sounded really good on 78.”
Guitarist and Phish bandleader Trey Anastasio leads the Trey Anastasio Band into the Palace Theatre in Albany at 7:30pm on Saturday. The band – which also features Nippertown bassist Tony Markellis – will play both an acoustic and electric set during the night. Tix are $39.50.
