View Full Version : What's the first album you ever bought?

Mine was 'Waking Up The Neighbours' by Bryan Adams in 1991.

I never was a fan of buying singles, I usually always buy the full album. I really liked 'Everything I do' at that time so I bought the album. I still like it today, it's great for driving. I listen to it quite often on my way to uni.

Gracelands by Paul Simon when I was about 10 (so... 1986?) after we were listening to the album at a party at primary school. Well I didn't buy it exactly but I got my dad to buy it for me. Still got it on vinyl at my parents' house but I don't have a record player to play it on anymore so I bought it again on CD last time I saw it in a sale.

My first CD was Joshua Tree by U2

Don't remember what the first LP was... Could have been Sting's The Dream of the Blue Turtles, but I'm not sure

My first CD was Shortsharpshock EP by Therapy? I didn't have a CD player at the time but they didn't release it on any other format so I had to get it on CD and go round to Goat Lord's house to copy it onto tape.

I don't remember the first album or tape that I bought, but the first CD I bought was Wu Tang Clan, 36 Chambers of Death

first LP - the Top Gun soundtrack :o
first cd - I bought the first Rage against the machine album and 'Gold against the soul' by the Manic street preachers on the same day. '2 for 22 pounds' i think! :)

A Comilation Album of really awful 90s eurodance. Real album? Well, I owned quite a few of them in my mid-teens, but they were mostly gifts or illegal copies. The one I can think of off-hand is Harvest by Neil Young, bought at age 16 with more of my stupid best of CDs, but surely I must have bought an album with my own money before then? Can't remember.

Oh wait, that's right. The first album I bought (non-compilation) was Be Here Now by Oasis. Right.

15-01-2002, 18:33:25
Oh god... my brother bought that. The first album was pretty good, had an impact when it came out. It was one of the first albums to break into what people would listen to on clubbing comedowns that wasn't dance orientated. After that...

Let's try to imagine the conversation between the inventors of eight-track:

"How about we invent something to play music that is completely useless? It should be low fidelity and it should seldom work properly. Ideally it should fade out in the middle of songs and have lots of clunking noises."

"What about three-track? We could have three sided tape. A cross-section of it would be triangular so the reel of tape would be roughly the size of a car tire. You would barely be able to carry one and you could only fit about three in your car."

"Wait a minute. That might be useful. In the winter people could use it as a rope to pull their cars out of the ditch."

"Yeah. You are right. Too useful. EUREKA!!! How about eight-track?!"

My first album was 'Out Of Time' back in the autumn of 1991. I'd never really expressed a great interest in music before then (wholly indifferent to most of it), but I liked a lot of the songs off it. I'd also heard it a couple of times when I was on holiday in Cyprus, so I decided to get it in the end. And now I have 120 CDs since then (probably bought half of them in about the past year since I had a bit of a musical rennaissance :D)
