This is a great thread. My first CD was Power Windows by Rush, which I still have. I bought it whenever that album was released, I think 1985. My first CD player was the Yamaha CD-X2. I remember thinking that DDD recording meant better sound, and was happy that Power Windows was indeed DDD. Does anyone else remember how CDs were originally packaged in tall cardboard boxes that were about the same height as an LP, so that record stores could display them in their existing LP spaces?
