What was the first album you ever bought?

Think back long and hard, what was the first album you ever bought with your own money?

I was 12 at the time I actually bought two at the same time and thankfully they weren't embarrassing choices looking back now.

Van Halen's 1984 and Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA. Both on cassette.

I bought 2 cassettes also - Simon and Garfunkle's Bridge Over Troubled Water and Black Sabbath's first album. Both still in my fav's. It was early 80's and I remember it because the cashier remarked about how eccletic my tastes's must be.

Re: What was the first album you ever bought?

I don't remember the first one that I personally bought, but I remember that when I was 11 I asked for and got (funny how my parent's ignored the explict lyrics labels) In Utero by Nirvana and The Bevis and Butthead Experience, and a Sony Walkman to play them on.

Those were good times.

First album? Don't know...but the first CD I ever bought was Bush - Razorblade Suitcase. I held out on CDs as long as I could, I loved cassettes for some reason. Still have over 100...mostly 80s hair band rock.

Guns and Roses "Appetite for Destruction," cassette of course. I was around 9 or 10 years old. I was a huge G N' R fan back in the day. I still don't remember how I managed to get it despite the explicit lyrics label.

I bought two at the same time for my first album purchase. "Versus" by Pearl Jam and "Core" by the Stone Temple Pilots.

Thankfully I cannot remember because I am sure that it is embarrasing looking back.

Steve Miller "Fly Like An Eagle" second Lynyrd Skynyrd "Gold & Platium" and I still have both but I'm sure they are scratched to hell.

I remember it like it was yesterday. My dad took me to the store and said he'd buy me two albums, one of my choice, and the second he would choose.

I picked out Arrested Development, They sung Mr. Wendel and Tennessee and what not. My dad picked out Michael Jackson Off the Wall. Still two CD's I listen to on a semi consistent basis.
