We had a similar thread a few years ago. See my post here.

Look at Jack with his institutional knowledge. I totally forgot about that thread.

LOL! I didn't remember that thread either. I did remember posting a photo of my Ventures album, and a search for "Ventures" came up with that thread.

Either Bay City Rollers or Kenny Rogers.
No, no waitaminute, Bay City Rollers was the first album i owned but Kenny Rogers was the first one i bought with my own allowance money.
Can't go wrong with a bit of The Gambler.

I believe it was Kiss Alive 1 purchased by my Grandmother as a Christmas gift. I'm sure the record store clerk wondered what she was thinking when she checked out. Many great times during the vinyl years.

As a matter of fact, if you don't know when to fold 'em, you could go really wrong.

My first 3 lp's- For the life of me I can't remember the order of aquisition, all within a year or so.

Fleetwood mac, rumours- required listening to this day. was purchased near the time of release.

Areosmith, toys in the attic- I once heard a version of big 10 inch done by a blues type artist from the 50's or earlier judging by the SQ. This was an eye opener for me as to the recycling of songs. I'd love to know who that artist was.

Tanya Tucker, TNT- I bought this one for the cover. This was legal porn for a 12 yr old. Had to return to alco discount on my bike several times to view it before I'd saved up enough to buy it. A couple of the songs were even halfway decent.

Ironicly, Rumours and Toys in the attic were my first 2 hi-rez discs.

I remember throwing the old records around like frisbees! The older ones would shatter some good but the newer ones could take your head off! Sad to say it but i think my fist record was MJ thriller. I remember buying Kenny Rogers the Gambler but it was for someone's 10th birthday present. Lucky kid!

Ps I have a RollingStones greatest hits on record not even opened! I think there's 4 albums in the box? Skid damage at my brothers work back in 1994-95. I could have had the whole skid but who wanted records back then! Think they went in the garbage.

The first record I owned was a gift "Peter, Paul and Mary" (album). The first one I bought and still own is Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass “Wipped Cream & Other Delights.”

Copied from my original post (3 years ago) that Jack linked to:

"Ok, now here is the disclaimer: It was 1978, it was 9th birthday, and my parents were big into Disco. Yes, you guessed it - Village People - YMCA.

But the first album I bought MYSELF was AC/DC Back in Black. It was also the first CD I bought. "
