The first album you ever bought.
« on: November 08, 2011, 01:12:48 AM »
So what was the first album you bought for yourself?


On Vinyl: Not music but the audio book for War of the Worlds. (I missed this format but is mainly how I buy music now)
On Cassette: Tricky - Maxinquaye.
On CD: Prodigy - Fat of the Land.
Digital download: Never bought a digital album. Edit: actually I did it was RJD2 - Since We Last Spoke.

I think my first CD that I bought was the ABBA Gold CD  :D

It was, I think, in 1965.  I can't remember my first CD.

It was a 'Top of the Pops' cover version album. In the dim and distant past record companies refused to mix their original recordings with other record companies. So the only way you could get a compliation album was for session musicians to do cover versions of all the tracks.

I think my first CD must've been Spice Girls or something. I just recently bought my first vinyl, and it was Ghost's album "Opus Eponymous".

Vinyl - Rolling Stones Some Girls, probably their last great album, for some of us anyway.

Tape - I used tapes I didn't buy them pre recorded, I got a dodgy Pink Floyd Final Cut from a market, didn't like it much.

CD - Midnight Oil Diesel and Dust, I think.

I don't like digital downloads, detest Itunes, I prefer CDs and ripping them to lossless Flac files.

(JOAN BAEZ IN CONCERT)

It was, I think, in 1965.  I can't remember my first CD.

I remember that album fondly from when I was a youngster.

I'm pretty sure that the first album I bought was the original Broadway soundtrack recording of HAIR. I ended up knowing pretty much all of the songs on it by heart (there are some great ones).

I hate to admit it, but It was the 1972 compilation album "Hits voor zomaar een zomeravond"  http://www.discogs.com/Hans-van-Hemert-Hits-Voor-Zomaar-Een-Zomeravond/release/1349393  On that album there is only one song that I still like, namely Group 1850's Mother No-Head.

The first CD that I bought was Kate Bush's "The Kick Inside"

Cassette: REM's Out of Time

CD: I think it was Sennsucht by Rammstein. (I think... There are a few possible competitors for my first CD...)

I bought it fresh off the shelf on my own.  I had albums before but they were bought for me:

Oh phew, I was worried there for a moment.
I thought Bieber had gone blond and taken up smoking.
