Your first music
 
OK, I think it was Beth who got me to wondering. This really doesn't even apply to the younger generation, who can down-load at will and whim. For us oldies (I'm 54), what was the first album you bought, and what kind of investment did it mean? I think for me it was Don McLean's American Pie sometime around 1971 give or take. I think it cost $3.50 or so at the BX, and at the time I made 50 cents/hour babysitting AND had a savings account.

Amazingly enough, the first album I bought was.... the soundtrack to Funny Lady, starring Barbara Streisand.

On 8 Track.

Which is why I now wait for technological format battles to end before I buy!

The first album I bought was Quiet Riot - Come On Feel The Noise. It is interesting because that is not the type of music I have ever liked. I did like the title song off it for about a week during which time I bought it, but I hated that album and that type of music.

The Monkees 1966! I was 7 years old and saved my allowance for what seemed like forever. And I still have the old vinyl today.

Ray Charles..Modern Sounds (I think) ... Less than $5

Still enjoy his music! --- "I can't Stop Loving You"..."Georgia On My Mind"..."I Love You So Much It Hurts"....to name a few.

JT by James Taylor when I was 16, then I saved all my money and bought ALL his albums!! And I still do :smile:

Unlike apparently many other kids, I didn't have the money to buy records. In retrospect I was probably better off listening to Martin Block's Make-Believe Ballroom.

The first album I bought was the collection of Bengali songs of Kishore Kumar and that was audio cassette .

The songs of Kishore Kumar are my all time favorites and now I have audio CD.

I remember the cover so well. My brother had the 8 track. Don McClean's thumb painted red, white & blue. Loved American Pie and Vincent.

Haha! When I starting moving on to CDs, you could buy oldie albums on CD for next to nothing at the hardware store! It was funny because the first thing my best friend from high school did was send me "American Pie" on CD format. I think her first might have been the movie soundtrack for "Jesus Christ, Superstar". I looked for it at the time, but haven't recently. When my husband and I went on the road we eithr gave away or sold all our old vinyl and the record player. Hmmm. Now that I think about it, I had an album I bought in Germany when I was something like 11 and the Beatles played backup for a singer (I want to say his name was something like Tony Sheraton). We got a few bucks more for that than the rest of the collection. I've been buying CDs of those records ever since. CDs are so much easier to deal with.
