the first album I bought with my own money was Endless Sumemr, Beach Boys. I had tons of the Disney 45s, you know the Davy Crockett tyoe stuff.

The first CD was Best Shots, Pat Benatar.

The first MP3 I bought was Santa Baby because it was Christmas time when I signed up for itunes. After that, She's So Unusual.

My favorite album growing up was Dark Side of the Moon.

I feel like I'm 12...the first cd I bought with my own money was Sheriee Austin's Words. I adore it still, but it got stolen (ironically) in Sydney a year ago. Of course, there were tapes and other CDs before that (the tapes of the embarassing boy-band phenomenon of the 80's variety), but I still remember the glee of actually buying the album.

My first 45 record that I can remember having was Blondie's "Rapture". I think I was 8 or 9. Loved it then, love it now. My first LP record was "Thriller" - who didn't like that album - especially a kid of the 80's. My first CD I bought when I was about 14, and that was Depeche Mode's "Strangelove" which I still own and listen to every once in a while.

The first cassettes I bought were Ace of Base's The Sign and Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill (which was surprising poplular with 11-12 year old girls). I can't remember which was first.

Before those I had all the soundtrack cassettes for all of the Disney movies since Beauty and the Beast. My parents gave me my first cd when I was 8 or 9 - The Little Mermaid soundtrack. Of course being that cd players were still fairly expensive I wasn't allowed to use it by myself. 12 years later I'm the only one who knows how to use the darn thing .

The first cd I actually bought... I can't remember, but I suspect it may have been by a boy band . Thankfully, I finally got over that phase .

I use to hug my Thriller album. *sigh*. Ooh, and i rememebr Rapture. Was that the video with a fake street and random cool, edgy, hip hop poeple break dancing and stuff. Kinda like a fashion show?

Wait, the fashion show was ChakaKahn's I Feel for You, right?---from Breakin'.

Too bad it wasn't a George Szell directing. Szell was my great uncle. When I was very young (and willing to prove I could be very quiet), I was allowed to sit in Severence Hall whilst the Orchestra practiced.

What a joy! I grew up in Miami, Oklahoma. Classical music wasn't big there. My Father listened to a 78 rpm record of Mario Lanza singing the music from the movie, "The Great Caruso". He belonged to a Columbia club for a while adding to our meager supply of classical music. I took a music appreciation class and heard the Beethoven recording. I think I was 15 before I heard the 9th Symphony for the first time.

So much beautiful music so little time!

I remember the first vinyl 45 I bought my own self - The Police - Walking on the Moon. Do I still like it? Hell yeah! I also seem to recall buying Adam and the Ants at some point fairly early on - must've got lost somewhere along the line. The best vinyl I had I didn't buy some one gave it to me - it was a 1940 Ella Fitzgerald recording. That I still have. As for cassettes - never really had many of them but I did buy all my Crowded House stuff on tape. Still have them too. Granted they are slightly on the knackered side. First CD, can't really remember but I have a feeling it was probably Catatonia's International Velvet. Or it could have been Jeff Waynes War of the Worlds. One of those two at any rate. All of which I still love.

Keep the Shiny side up


I realized how things have changed when my 25+year old turntable finally gave up the ghost and I went to Best Buy to look for another one. There were dozens of CD & DVD players, even a few tape decks, and two turntables.

My first LP was either the soundtrack to the Victory at Sea TV series or the 1812 Overture. Got both at the same time, along with my new Sears Silvertone stereo. The first 45 was Pipeline by the Chantays. First 8-track (what's an 8-track, daddy?) was Fire and Rain by James Taylor. First casette and CD? Don't even remember.

Ok I'm too young to have been around for vinyl, but I did inherit my mum's collection which consists of UB40, Hendrix, ACDC, Cold Chisel and some really awesome punk rock.

The very first cassette tape that I bought was the Ninja Turtle soundtrack to the very first movie- anyone else remember the song "Spin That Wheel?"

My first CD that *I* bought, with my allowance was Pearl Jam's Vitalogy, I was 12 and I still have it, and it still plays. they have a great song called "Bugs" I love it!

I think I was 10 or 11..I still have the dang tape too..
First vinyl record was David Bowie Heroes...and bought at the same time was Sisters of Mercy..
First CD..I think..hmmmm was The Creatures first album..can't remeber the name.
What a neat question to pose..takes you back to those strange days when what you listened to was your life.

Wow...this makes me feel sad...fortunately all of this was far enough in the past to be able to claim adolescent lack of experience =)

First LP - Kiss, Dynasty
First Cassette - Ratt, Out of the Cellar
First CD - Dread Zeppelin...I don't even remember the name of the album. I was all excited because it only came out on CD at the time. Now I'm sure it isn't available anywhere.

I don't think I still have any of them, and I haven't listened to them in at least a decade or more if perchance I do still have them =p

With shame,

I started out with my two sisters old LP records like Boston, Kansas, The Who, Todd Rundgren, Supertramp, etc... Hand-me-downs after they got tired of them (I'm the youngest by 5 & 6 years respectively).

The first ones I bought with my own money:

1st LP: Michael Jackson's "Thriller" - Perhaps the last great album he did before he went loony-toons.

1st cassette: Men at Work "Cargo" - Had just got a walkman for my birthday that summer...

1st CD: Seal (1994) - Was using a rented 4x4 SUV, a laptop & GPS unit to make an up to date map of Grant County, WA for their new 911 system (mid 90s' - mapped 3500+ miles of roads over 3 months). Bought a CD walkman, cassette adapter and the CD... Averaging 300 miles a day with only the 1 CD for a few weeks lets you REALY learn every note... The amazing thing is I still like Seal and have collected all of his albums on CD now.

Hmm... WOW! It just dawned on me WHY I simply HAD to have the phatnoise unit for my car. Now I have just over 650 CDs worth of mp3s on a hard disk attached to the sterio. I can drive for months without ever hearing a repeat (or comercial) unless I want to.

2nd CD: Men at Work "Cargo" Had to update cause the tape got stretched and wierd sounding. Just had to have a good copy of the song "No Sign of Yesterday". I must have listened to that 100 times on the cassette after I got dumped. Looking back, it was silly kid stuff but it still hurt. Now the whole album just brings back good memories of that summer.

Flying on duct tape and a damaged registry.


The first record I ever bought was either Ram by Paul and Linda McCartney or Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles (I threw away those stupid cutouts, of course!). This was about 1971 or 1972. I still have those records today. I would listen to them more often, but Sgt Pepper is worn and Ram is trashed. (If I only knew then what I know now!)

The first CD I bought was Breakfast in America by Supertramp and Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits. Circa 1988. I still listen to them, and of course they are in PERFECT shape.

NEVER bought a cassette album. The quality was inconsistent and averaged somewhere around "bad". (I still have some recordings I made of some of my records when they were new. Maxell UDXL-II, no Dolby, Akai GXC-706D deck. They are still in remarkably good shape, considering that some of them are coming up on 28 years old...)

NEVER had 8 track. Dodged that bullet.

First vinyl ever(bought at a garage sale): Star Wars Soundtrack
First vinyl bought new: Pearl Jam - Vitology
First CD: Last Action Hero soundtrack.

I still have the vinyl records, though mainly as keepsakes since I also have the albums on CD. I'm sure the Thriller casette is somewhere in my mother's garage, but I havn't listened to it in 15 years. The CD I sold ages ago, though I still like the Alice in Chains song on it.

The First CD was Queen Greatest Hits. (I was beginning to replace my cassette collection with CD)

I don’t really remember.

I can only say that the Star Wars theme on 45 was one of my first. I don’t remember where I got it. I just remember being so thrilled to have it, and I listened to it all the time.

Alvin and the Chipmunks country music album might have been my first full length vinyl, but I don’t remember. It was a Christmas gift. We didn’t have money to buy that kind of stuff, so I didn’t own very many albums that I actually would have chosen to own. I just had what people gave me, sometimes as a gift, but mostly just to get rid of it. So when I was in my adolescent phase (10-13), when most other kinds my age were listening to Madonna or Michael Jackson, I was listening to songs like “Yellow Rose of Texas,” “Lone ranger theme,” “Red River Valley,” “The Road and Miles to Dundee,” or “The Town I Loved So Well.”

I was probably the only kid in my school who knew all the words to “Red River Valley” or “the Road and the Miles to Dundee.”

But I had other music too. Stuff by Waylon Jennings, the Eagles, John Denver, Johnny Cash, Jim Reves, Kenny Rogers, John Schneider (the Duke boy)...

For not having actually bought an album I certainly had a large library, come to think of it.

But it was many years before I actually bought an album of my own choosing, and that was Billy Joel's Greatest Hits.

I think I was 30 before I bought or even owned a CD, and that was Garbage.

Shiny! Firefly and Boingo are two things that really define who I am, both are relatively obscure interests, and I think it's awesome when there is overlap.

Yes I am a dork, and a nerd. I still love musicals and Clint Eastwood was really hot in 1969 even if he had no butt.



Not a dork at all, in my book! My older sister and I went to the theater to see Paint Your Wagon and we sat through it twice. That was sometime in 1970 (took a while for the movie to come to our Nebraska backwater). Later, my sister bought the album, and to this day I still love the movie and can sing all the songs on it.

The first LP I ever bought was several years prior to that -- The Beatles second album. I'm officially in the "old geezer" demographic.

Most recent CD purchase: Soundtrack to Firefly. :)

You guys, never be ashamed of the music you like.
A lot of the music I like gets me a lot of grief from other people, but I continue to listen to it.

I love Karen Carpenter, Doris Day, Buddy Holly, Barbra Striesand (thet spelled right?) and most classicals. I also have a large appetite for movie soundtracks. There is no such thing as being a "dork" for listening to the music that makes you feel good, so don't call yourself that.

So far, what I've read in this thread, you people seem to have good taste in music, so I must be hanging around the right crowd.
