First LP purchase - Led Zeppelin II

I am sure giving my age away with this one.

First CD purchase - Pat Metheny, Offramp. 1982.

I had yet to get a disk player. A small Sony, their first release in North America, followed a month later.

Memories indeed.

Jackson 5 - ABC will give your age away. I remember seeing them on The Ed Sullivan Show as a young boy. Their dance moves were great.

Pink Floyd? Just replaced my early CD copy with the new remaster earlier this year. If there was any change done, I have yet to find them. As good as anytime to listen to it.

My first 45's was Crystal Blue Persuasion. I do not remember who was the artist. I was like in grade 7 or 8.

Thanks for posting.

Hi everyone. I first became really interested in music in 1964 at the age of 8. Yeah, I'm an old codger of 56 now. When the Beatles came to America that year I, and virtually everyone under the age of about 25, was hooked. I asked my mom to buy me "Meet the Beatles", which was the first album they released here. It was on the Capital label and was mono. This LP was later released in stereo. It was somewhat comparable to "With the Beatles" in the UK, although some of the songs were different. I played that record to death on my plastic record player that was housed in a small suitcase. It probably drove my parents crazy. My dad pretty much only liked country and my mom loved Elvis, Fabian, the Supremes, and the Everly Brothers. I found out years later that she did actually like some of the early Beatles stuff as well, though.
I don't really remember the first LP I bought with my own money, but it was probably hard rock such as Deep Purple or Santana. I now listen to classical almost exclusively. I love it. The first classical record I bought was "Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Richard Strauss after I saw "2001: A Space Odyssey" in 1968. The opening part of that piece is the famous signature music of the movie. The album I bought was by Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra on the Columbia label. Happy memories.
I don't know what the first CD I bought was. I don't really listen to digital.

First album was Blue Magic, a r&b group. Loaning the album out lead me into a love of audio gear. The first cd was a sampler from Windham Hill.

I mistakenly thought my first cd player, a JVC was bad because the disc did not always play correctly. It was my one and only cd. I gave the player away to a family member, only to find it was the disc that had a problem. They still have the player, which still works. Which is over twenty years ago.

My dad had all Classical on RTR - my first Album purchased was on a cassette tape - Lenny Kravitz 'Are You Gonna Go My Way' and played it so much the thing wore out. Shortly thereafter got an offer in the mail for BMG Music which was like get 20 cds for a penny or something. I believe I was in 7th-8th grade. I got all kinds of awesome stuff from Led Zeppelin,AC/DC, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Tom Petty, Metallica, Motley Crew, Aerosmith, Ozzy Ozbourne, Guns N' Roses, Prince, Depeche Mode, that's all I remember. Played them on a small boombox. First Rock Concert was Lenny Kravitz opening for the Rolling Stones :)

Beatles was first LP. We were living in Germany & got back to the states in '65, Too bad I was a kid & didn't pick up any copies while in Germany.

First CD again was the Beatles & that was the only reason I bought a CD player.

Just hung up a picture frame w/Sgt. Peppers CD longbox and newspaper article (1987) a few hours ago. I think I had it framed within a few weeks of buying the CD & the newspaper article.
