Postby Genuine_Indian_Guru » Mon Feb 27, 2006 10:27 pm

Gene Simmons solo album from 1978 was mine...which was pretty cool for me at the time ....being seven years old...interesting record too..."Living in Sin (at the holiday inn)" and "When you Wish Apon a Star" on one album!!
Talk about variety!

I can't really remember the first Album I bought. I do think the first 45 I ever bought was "It's Raining Again" by Supertramp.

I think the first cassette I bought was Break Every Rule by Tina Turner.

The first cd I ever bought was Out of Time by R.E.M.

I was one of those younger siblings that always listened to my older sister's records. She had a lot of records/45s by Blondie, The Bee Gees, The Cars, Prince, and a lot of other pop stuff from that late '70s/early '80s era.

We both had copies of Thriller I think. (One vinyl, one cassette) And my mother always played Give My Regards to Broad Street.

In fact, the two albums I remember listening to the most as a kid were Thriller and Give My Regards to Broad Street.[/i]
And in the end...

The first album I ever bought with my own money was Wings Greatest. I really didn't have to buy too many albums. My dad who grew up with the Beatles (not literally!) went out and bought me a bunch of Beatles, Stones, Who etc. at the first sign that I was intrested in music because he didn't want me listening to disco. I had a killer Beatles collection and some Paul solo and Wings before I had to actually go out and buy my own.

Those were the days :)

VeeJay #1092...Introducing the Beatles.....I had raked leaves in several yards in late 1963 (8 years old) and had over $5 (I did like 10 houses). I bought the album for just over $3. My Mom bought me the first capitol US album (meet the beatles) a few months later right after Sullivan when she got the bug herself. I still cherish both of them.

I remember being 7 or 8 and buying Magical Mystery Tour and 20 Greatest Hits on casette. My dad had all the Beatles and Macca albums on vinyl, so I didn't have to buy much, but I do remember wanting to have the albums on cassette so I could walk around with them! Ah, memories!

Well, well...actually I started to buy The Beatles collection at the same time to solo Beatle collection at the age 18(I'm 32) with my own money.
Mi Papa had some vinyl Beatle albums like Please Please Me, Help, Sgt.Pepper and other oldies and the solos Ram and Imagine, but the very first I bought myself was Past Masters 1 and 2, Macca's first was Flowers in the dirt seconded by Band on the run, his most famous album both in CD version(too expensive at the time!).
