Thank you, Curtis. I DO have excellent taste in music . And just to avoid any misunderstanding those are all winks signifying that I'm being completely facetious.

I didn't really become musically "aware" until about 1983-84. I of course heard all the music that my parents and older brother listened to, but the first music that was "mine" would have come about in the summer of 1984.

Michael Jackson - Thriller
Prince - Purple Rain
Duran Duran - Rio
Huey Lewis & the News - Sports
Men at Work - Business as Usual
Footloose soundtrack
Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack
Talking get the idea.

If I recall correctly the first album (cassette actually) that I remember owning of my own was Purple Rain. (A birthday gift) and I was NOT happy. I had specifically asked for Michael Jackson's Thriller album. Who wanted Prince? He was a "fag". (oh...the irony!) Turns out I LOVED the album. Every single song. (especially Darling Nikki, cause it was naughty and I was twelve.)

Van Halen/David Lee Roth came along soon thereafter. 1984, Crazy from the Heat, Eat 'Em and Smile...

Damn...the 80's get a bad rap, but there was some great music then.

fyi...prior to discovering music of my own I listened mostly to Jim Croce, Kenny Rogers, Simon & Garfunkel, and love them all still today. I also really enjoyed listening to old Bill Cosby records.

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.

Sonicfox, you made me dig out my vinyl. Very cool. My wife hates you.

Epic 80/600 + M3's + M3 Algonquins + M2 Computer + EP125
I think I'm developing an addiction.

This is the first album I ever owned, sounded real nice on that turntable with the built in speakers, it was a light cream color with built in speaker, couldn't tell you the name to save my life.

The first one that I asked for and that was bought for me was a Roger Williams piano album. I can picture the album cover in my mind and remember the sound, but not the name.

Another album I had-And still do!! is still with me today! Is a real "Record Album" Open the book(like a photo album) and inside the front cover is a listing for up to ten 78 records. Each 78 has it's own individual enveloping page. It contains 78s on the Columbia, RCA and Disc, New York, labels. It, however, was a hand-me-down from my father in the late 50s.

Ok sonicfox, now you've done it-

Question, Question anyone!!

Remember "Your Hit Parade"? Of course you do, wasen't it Snookie Lansen, Jeselle Macensie,(sp) and two others that I can't recall their names. (Help!)

Also at the same time, and advertized on TV was a company that sold 45s of the songs that were popular at that time-they were, I think on blue see-thru plastic. Anyone remember who sold these things?

Both of these two seemed to die at about the dawning of Rock.

Rosemary Clooney (George's aunt) and Gordon McRae. I didn't know this myself you understand - Jack told me.

As a matter of fact, Jack - tell everyone about that album you bought after the live Druid chanting concert at Stonhenge in 1207 AD. I believe you said it was the first vinyl disc ever cut.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
