or



what can I say?  I went through a rap phase back then.

of course at that age cassette tapes were still in use, so a lot of the music I had was gotten from the radio, friends or the library.

The first album I remember buying with my own money was Van Halen - 1984.  My mom took one look at the smoking baby and promptly banned me from listening to it.


The first one I was actually able to keep was Men Without Hats - Pop Goes the World.  Cheesy as it is, I still have a soft spot for this album and listen to it quite often.


First CD's I ever bought were on the same day:  NIN - Broken and Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick.

This can't come as a surprise...



I started getting into drumming and there is nobody better.  (though Portnoy comes close!)  It still serves as one of my absolute favorite albums of all time.

Does it have to be a full album or could it have been a 45 record?  The first album I myself purchased was :



My parents had lots of awesome albums, though.

Trying to think what 45 I first bought.

My first cassette was Abbey Road, but I never bought many prerecorded tapes. Always preferred to make my own.

Don't remember my first CD. I joined a music club and bought a lot of them all at once, mostly replacing vinyl. Knowing me, it was probably Bowie or Peter Gabriel-era Genesis.

I remember begging my dad for this one:

Spoiler for Hiden:

It came with a 45 of the main theme.

I'm not sure what the first album I bought for myself was, though.  I feel like I should know that.  Probably something like Thomas Dolby or Howard Jones.

I do know the first 45 I bought for myself was this:

Spoiler for Hiden:

I'm not sure how many times I listened to the song, but I looked at the cover a lot.

Billy Joel's 52nd Street (Big Shot, My Life, etc.), in 1978, I think, at about age 13. I got into music-buying fairly late.

My teen years, most of my musical taste was copying my brother's (he's 4 years older). He had bought "The Stranger," although his favorite artists/groups at the time were probably Boston, Styx and The Eagles.

I didn't even have a stereo. I had this goofy, off-white, "boxed clamshell" type turntable with a single mono speaker. My best friend Joey and I would go to the mall and visit stores like Korvette's, Harmony Hut, etc. and other record stores whose names are lost to time. Ultimately I just went with 52nd Street, because buying some album my brother already had seemed like a moot point, and because Big Shot and My Life were saturating FM radio at the time and helping block disco from the airwaves. smile

I found 52nd Street "aged" pretty well over the years. By that, I mean some songs that did nothing for me at age 13, I suddenly started to like when I was in college, or in my 30s and listened to the songs (albeit, by then it was either of a tape of that record, or a greatest hits CD).

"Until the Night" is this melodramatic attempt at Billy Joey as The Righteous Brothers, and at age 13 I thought it was terrible. I never listened to the song all the way through. At some point around age 20 in college when I was having a hard time, I listened to the song again and it meant more to me. And now as old fart, it's one of my favorite Billy Joel songs. But I think you almost have to have aged and lived through some heartache before you appreciate the song. At least, that's how it worked for me.  icon_smile

Cool thread idea btw. Enjoyed reading everybody's firsts.  icon_cool

I was convinced that CDs weren't going to catch on (DAT was going to be huge!) so I was still buying a good deal of vinyl through the late 80s. I remember that I bought U2s 'Rattle and Hum' on vinyl. I had a stereo with a CD player too but I kept buyin cassettes. That went way, way out the window when I got to college and I bought mountains of CDs.

I honestly can't remember the first CD I bought. One of the earliest was 'Cake' by The Trashcan Sinatras.

Great Canadian band. Finally got inducted into the Rock n Roll hall of fame this year. "Closer to the heart"....And I agree the drummer for Rush is a Maestro at what he does...

Just to add to my comment on drumming. Although there are a few drummers that are at the top of my list, there really is only one. John Bonham. R.I.P. bud.
