ITT: We post the first album we bought.

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 

So I heard a song on the radio today and it was from the first album I had ever bought. So I got to thinking what is the first album people on head-fi bought with their own cash?

 

 

Mine is AC/DC - Ballbreaker (cassette)

Mine was in '95 I was 8. I am pretty sure the store was a blockbuster music. How I miss those stores..

 

I thought this thread would be fairly popular I searched for a similar thread and couldn't find one.

It weirds me out. Music is such a huge part of my life now, but I used to buy Marvel comics, baseball cards and skateboard accessories with my money when I was young.

 

My parents were big music fans, and when they stopped bringing the latest music into the house, that role passed to my older sister, who gave me the LP I prized as a teenager: Funkadelic's One Nation Under A Groove. (She had taken me to see Parliament a few years earlier.) I think before 1980, I had seen more shows than I had bought records. And when I started buying, it was generally cassettes, so I had Prince's Dirty Mind, Elvis Costello's My Aim Is True and Trust, the Talking Heads' More Songs About Buildings and Food, the Clash's Give 'Em Enough Rope, Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures and Chic's Risque on tape. It's all a blur as to what came first, though.

I was nine, and my Dad had a habit of buying me good music. He didn't classify this as good music.

Alicia Keys - Songs In A Minor.

post #15 of 39

It was a long time ago but these were my first three i believe.  The Beatles was given to me, my uncle worked for Capitol Records, my parents hated Easy Rider but i liked Born to be Wild and The Pusher, and of course the Monkees, i was still a kid.  Funny enough i ended up seeing two of the Monkees on a regular basis years later in two totally different situations.
