A bit fuzzy, but either Elton John / Elton John, or a Sha Na Na record.
But the one that I remember REALLY wanting, and my Dad would not let me buy it, because the guy at the store said it was "one of those pot smoking bands" was The Band, Rock of Ages.
I had no idea who the Band was, or why I wanted that album, but I was just facinated with the idea that it was a whole (or so we thought then) Live show, and I just loved the picture on the cover.
It just looked cool.
Years and years later, after I had become a huge Band fan, I had the opportunity to show my Dad the album cover.
I asked him who (he thought) had taken the picture.
Without even a moment's hesitation he responded with, "Why that's Ernst Haas."
My Dad had studied under Haas up in Maine while on his way to becoming a photographer.
He remembered the incident, and got a pretty big kick out of the funny way that life seem to work out sometimes.
And, back then anyway, he thought The Band was pretty darn good!

OK Curtis! If you keep laughing, and I'm gonna start talking about the virtues of X-10 controlled lights, and you'll end up spending a LOT of money!

Hmm, let me harken back. The first vinyl? For my 11th B-day my parents gave me a little plastic cream coloured record player with a 2 or 3" speaker. I either was given or purchased immediately thereafter, six 45's. The ones i can remember are:
Monkeyes - I'm a believer
Beatles - Revolution #9
The Band - Up on Cripple Creek (side B) & Drive Old Dixie Down (side A)

The first two albums I bought were also by K-Tel 20 Explosive Hits - US version and 20 Explosive Hits - Cdn version . I figured you couldn't beat the value. I remember just falling in love with the song "Venus". Ma Belle Amie, No Sugar Tonight and American Woman also stick out in my memory. I became a big Guess Who fan back then.

My first album? Ignoring the tapes... and please, ignore the tapes...

Aw crap. Ignore this too... I didn't have any taste as a young teenager--Kitaro, Light of the Spirit.

Still have it. Listened to it a few months ago and said, "What the hell did I see in this junk?"

Um, no offense to any Kitaro fans out there.

The first rock (ie, not Weird Al album) was Nirvana-Nevermind.

Oh yeh. My sisters were big into stuff like the Partridge Family, Bobby Sherman, David Cassidy (also Partridge Family) and The Bay City Rollers, so I listened to that stuff too.

Just wouldn't admit it at the time.

1982, I begged my mom for "Pac-Man Fever" by Buckner & Garcia. Oh, the joy when she let me put it in the cart. Had to wash the family cars as payment, but it was worth every penny. I can't believe no one's mentioned this one yet.


Okay, so I was a wierd kid. . .
