Admin Post The first 45: Duke of Earl. I was actually looking for Moon River, but they were out of it, and I wanted to buy something, so I bought Duke of Earl, which I had never heard, and I didn’t like it all that well when I played it. I was all of 7 years old and Andy Williams’ recording of it was getting all sorts of airplay. As it turns out, Andy Williams never released Moon River, as a single, so my trip to the record store would have never yielded what I was hoping to buy. At that ripe old age, the price of an album was way outta my league. First album: I’m not certain, but almost certainly something by Chet Atkins, probably Guitar Genius. I have definite memories of buying that while I was still pretty young. IIRC, I also bought Chet Atkins Picks on the Beatles. I remember seeing Guitar Workshop at the record shop, but I don’t remember if I ever bought it.
