Interesting thread. I had various kiddie albums given to me, but first serious LPs (got them at the same time) were:

Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced
ABB - LAFE

in 3rd grade at the time. Circa 1971 as I recall.

My first 45 (I was 12 at the time) was "Upside Down" with Diana Ross (it had just come out; yes I'm that old). My first LP was Supertramp's "Crime of the Century".


Holy crap! That was my first 45!

First album, I believe, was "Music Machine" from K-Tel ('cause it had a cool robot on the front).

First real album would have been Eagles - The Long Run.


Yes, I realise that the 45 came out after the albums - I like to start big!

First 45 - "The Twist" by Chubby Checker in 1960...holy crap, I'm old!
First album - "Glad All Over" by the Dave Clark Five around 1964.

Oldest album that I still have - "If You Can Believe Your Ears and Eyes" by the Mamas and the Pappas 1966.

First record I remember:
Kid's 45 version of Puff the Magic Dragon (not Peter, Paul & Mary)

First record I could afford to buy myself:
Zapp for $7.99 at the Record Factory, when it still had a head shop inside.

First record given to me was HELP by the Beatles for Christmas 1965 (still have it)

First 45 was Long Cool Woman ( In a Black Dress)1971. To this day still have not been able to figure what the lyrics are for most of the song.

First LP, Pagliero in 1971. Still have it.

Funny that I remember these things because if you asked me what I did this past Monday I would have a hard time remembering that!

First LP I bought (in about 1986, not new in 1980) was the 12", 45-RPM Mr. Crowley Live EP, I think. First one I think I received for Christmas was a K-Tel "Best of 60s Rock Jukebox" one.

Wow, anyone remember when you could still buy an artist's back catalog at a record store?

Strangely, I think my first purchased cassette tape was also Ozzy - Speak of the Devil.
