    Heynow..... and Happy New Year ! :wave:

    Saw this on a music site regarding the new year and made me think, as I recall the first one I bought with my own money was a Creedence album, Suzy Q was the "hit". I was thirteeen or fourteen.

    Pretty sure the one I have imprinted on my brain though is Dark Side Of The Moon.......bought that on eight track.

    D'OH.....get off my lawn !

    ( I still have my Creedence, horrible condition)

    Anybody else.......hey, it can be cassette, laser disc, eight track, or bootleg :beer:

    My first CD was Boston and I didn't even own a CD player at the time.
    Still have that CD.

    The first LP I bought with my own money was The Doors. I still own it, even though it is worn too thin to play anymore.

    Mine was CCR's Willy and the Poor Boys ( think that is the name). Down on the Corner was the big hit on it.

    I was born in 1956. I can't remember the first Album I bought on my own
    but I do remember my older sibs and cousins playing The Beatles Records.

    I'm guessing my first LP that I bought with my own money was probably Ike and Tine Turner Revue after seeing them at the Ohio State Fair in like '68-'70 or thereabouts... I was around 10-12.

    I was born in 1956 also. My first album was Herman's Hermits. Forgot the name of the album but the hit song was "Mrs. Brown (you've got a lovely daughter)".

    Probably dating myself, but I had the 45 of "I Think I Love You", never would admit to it though!
    (What's a 45 Dad?)
    First album I remembering buying was Janis Joplin "Pearl".
    Had all my vinyl's until about a year ago when the basement flooded. Hate to think what the collection may have been worth.

    lol, another 1956'er here.

    Don't ask me why, but my first album that I bought was the soundtrack to "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" lol
    My second album was The 1910 Fruitgum Company.
    I think I finally got on track with my third album, Led Zeppelin's first album.
    I still have every album I ever bought.

    I went to the music store to buy a bruce springsteen album.


    I took a buddy along who was from london and alot older and wiser then i was.

    he talked me into buying the Sex Pistols Never Mind the Bollocks.

    I loved it and think fondly about that lp and how it changed the course of my life. just listened to it again 2 nights ago.

    Took me from a sheep to a lion almost over night.
