G.E. Smith, What Was the First Album That You Ever Bought?
“The first record I ever bought?
“Well, I don’t recall the first album, but I remember the first singles. I think I bought two records that night – a song called ‘The Three Bells’ by the Browns, and I bought ‘Alley Oop’ by Dante and the Evergreens. I was probably five or six years old at the time.”
Former guitarist with the Saturday Night Live Band, Bob Dylan, Hall & Oates and others, G.E. Smith teams up with guitarslingers Jim Weider (the Band, the Levon Helm Band) and Danny Kortchmar (Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Don Henley) as “The Masters of the Telecaster“ at Levon Helm’s Studio in Woodstock at 8:30pm on Saturday (June 14). Rounding out the band is drummer Randy Ciarlante, keyboardist Brian Mitchell and bassist Byron Isaacs. Tickets are $60 for seats; $40 for standing room. The guitarists will also conduct a master class at 3:30pm prior to the concert.
