Just out of interest....was wondering if anyone would like to share their first music purchase!

Mine was a record or album....caller BUMPER!
Includes bands such as...
Bay City Rollers...Money Honey
Hot Chocolate...You Sexy Thing
Kenny...The Bump
AC/DC...High Voltage

This album, I just had to have as it had Bay City Rollers on it, I was about 6years old...My sister at the time had to have ABBA.

Oh ,by the way...I still have this Album! & my sisters ABBA records...
And still own many records....even can't resist buying buying records
at second hand and great to play.

Waiting to hear from anyone!

1974, I was 8 years old and bought Teenage Rampage by Sweet.
Stiil love the record now.

Great live performance of the song, this band could actually play, quite a novelty for the time!

First record I ever bought was a 45 single. I can't remember what year but I would have been around 10, so it ewas in the '50's.

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 1981.
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 ourselves.

A few years later I saw Hugh Cornwell perform solo at the local Arts Centre and he was absolutely crap!

Track Listings.

1."Sometimes" (4:56)
2."Goodby Toulouse" (3:12)
3."London Lady" (2:25)
4."Princess of the Streets" (4:34)
5."Hanging Around" (4:25)
6."Peaches" (4:03)
7."(Get A) Grip (On Yourself)" (3:55)
8."Ugly" (4:03)
9."Down In The Sewer: Falling/Down In The Sewer/Trying To Get Out Again/Rat's Rally" (7:30)

Go Buddy Go.

Had to do some thinking on this one...

First 45 single - "Smokin' in the Boys Room" - Brownsville Station
"Seasons in the Sun" - Terry Jacks (so depressing)
It's a tie, i bought them both at the same time.

First Album - "Paranoid" - Black Sabbath (still have it)

First 8 Track - "Paranoid" - Black Sabbath (from the old RCA music

First Cassette - "Live Rust" - Neil Young

First CD - "Reckless" - Bryan Adams. In 1984, very limited choices at the time.

I remember it well..

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"

Funny, I still listen to him today...

Great memories

...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 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.

My first album was Fleetwood Mac's "Rumors" of the best albums ever.

Then, it was my first tape, then my first CD. It is still the one I go for if I need to de-stress (if I can't find Jimmy Buffet's "Off to See the Lizard" or CSNY's "So Far").

I'm strange, I know; I was born a generation too late.

First CD; Green Day - Dookie
