First album I ever bought myself was a few years later, sometime in 1977, after seeing The Stranglers play 'Go Buddy Go', (Peaches, the A-Side of
the single, was banned from most TV and Radio Stations) on Top Of The Pops.
Some weeks later, when I had saved enough money, I bought the Rattus Norvegicus album.
Eventually got to see them live when at 15years old a schoolfriend and I got the train to Newcastle to watch them duriing the La Folie tour of
They were excellent and we were the talk of the school next day as we had been to Newcastle, had a few pints, watched a band and got home safe all by
A few years later I saw Hugh Cornwell perform solo at the local Arts Centre and he was absolutely crap!

Growing up so poor and on the farm in West Virginia, I was not exposed to music until much later than most, but I remember I bought an 8 track tape
player for my car and an 8 track of the "Best of Gordon Lightfoot"
OMG AD my theme song !! LOL I was actually fortunate enough to know Joe Edwards.. one of the artists who drew Archie comics and LIL jinx.. He drew a
Pooh Bear pic for my son when he was born..I should find it.. Pooh Bear looks kinda like Moose ... LOL
...Hmmm.... I wish I had been around in the 60's to get all my favorite Albums on Vinyl...however... I'm a little out of order - I got tapes, then
CD's THEN Vinyl lol.
First Tape: Hoyt Axton Greatest Hits...Someone actually gave this to me... but the first tape I bought myself would've been Margaret Becker - iwent
through this Christian Music Phase when I was little.. Strange.
First CD: Oh god. I don't even want to put it on here, because no one will look at me in the same light again...seriously..I don't know WHAT
posessed me to buy this CD... BoyPower. ALL the Boybands from the 90's. I'm dying a little inside, knowing that someone out there is laughing!
First LP: Cher - Halfbreed. Excellent Album! My grandfather passed away and left me his Record Player along with a bunch of records - mostly polish
polka and Elvis. I found Cher at a secondhand store - $1.25. I also bought Tina Turner - Private Dancer, at the same store.
What I REALLLLY want...is the record collection that my Dad's first wife has...My Father's record collection.... My dad had all the music I
love, on Vinyl. CCR, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles (that kind of stuff). Thats the stuff I want on Vinyl.
Enojoyed watching...this one...Ahhh the 70's
The hair and the outfits....are they coming back into fashion...or were they ahead of their time?
I had the Farrah Fawcett Flicks...and made my mum sew Tartan to all my clothes ,as I was into Bay City Rollers.
