Considering the new vinyl theme, I am just wondering what everyone's first record was?

Mine was Queen- Sheer Heart Attack and April Wine - Harder Faster, birthday presents from my sisters when I was 11.

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".

My first record that I bought was Styx - Grand Illusion. The first record that I remember someone giving me was The Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour. I wish that I had hung onto the Beatles LP as I now have a greater appreciation for that album (Grand Illusion? don't care for it at all now).

My first real LP was one of those compilation albums from Ronco or something in the mid seventies. If I think of it, I'll re-post because it really DID have some great tracks!

My first "regular" LP was Aerosmiths' Toys In The Attic.

First single was Blondie Heart of Glass. First LP that I recall buying was the Grease soundtrack. My mom let me play all of her records on our console stereo. She was a Beatles fan - even saw them live in 1964! We had a lot of 70s rock, like Queen, David Bowie, Alan Parsons' Project, Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack, etc.

Oh how I miss those days.

I'm assuming we aren't counting kiddie records, as I may have had some of those I don't recall, and I know I had something star wars related that was an actual record.

However, my first true musical purchase was a cassette tape, as records were around but on their way out. It was Michael Jackson's Thriller, which I just saw is about to be released again as a 25th anniversary edition.

Oh boy, that's bit far back for me to recall. It was the 70s for crying out loud \:D I think one of the first pieces of vinyl was a Billy Preston disc.

One of my Mom's favorite stories to tell is that apparently I could correctly identify all her Beatles 45's when I was only 3 or 4 years old. She would make a game of it when people came over by having someone name a Beatles tune and I would pick it out of the collection and hand it to my Mother to play, correct side up.

First LP....I'm almost ashamed to admit it but when I was pretty young my uncle bought me KISS - Destroyer. I still fondly remember the look of horror on my parents faces when I opened it up and they saw the cover art.

First album: Sean Cassidy - Da Doo Run Run

First music I bought with my own money (from detasseling corn in Central Illinois) was a cassette tape: Def Leppard - Pyromania

How about the a record your parents listened to when you were young that you recently purchased yourself? For me: James Taylor - Gorilla. What I won't be buying: Roger Whittaker (though I bet he'd sound nice on M80s).
