Impressive to an old hippie like myself.

I bought some 45s early on, but couldn't tell you which ones. I believe the first album I bought was Early Steppenwolf, or might have been The Beatles Yesterday and Today, but not the one with the banned cover photo...

Also won a copy of Magical Mystery Tour from a radio station giveaway.

IIRC this was the first album I ever bought, then age 15. I lived in Germany at the time, so it may not have been as popular in the USA. Not that they were my favorite band, that was and will probably always be The Beatles...#1 on my iPod/iTunes.

Thanks for the memory I'd almost forgotten! When I was a teenager, my buddies and I wore the grooves off two albums, listening to them every day after school: In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (mimicking playing the drum solo every time) & Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Oh yes, Sgt. Pepper brings back lots of teen memories. What a great period for music!

Have this on vinyl and CD. Also had it on 8-track. My first big-name concert was Steppenwolf, March, 1970, which was the tour they recorded for this album.

So cool. I would have given anything to see them play - then and still now, one of my favorites.

One night in high school, after dinner, everyone sitting around the living room watching tv (mandatory attendance). In my best antisocial way I was listening to music with headphones - Steppenwolf. All of a sudden I notice everyone staring at me. That's when I realized I had been singing along with the music - The Pusher Man. guess which line I sang out loud.

My first big show was Jimi Hendrix, Dec 1 '68 at the Chicago Coliseum. The ticket was a birthday gift, my folks had no idea what they were giving me.

My first real rock & roll concert was Santana in 1972 at the Spectrum in Philadelphia. I loved it, though my ears were ringing until at least noon the next day, seriously. And I've never been anywhere with more smoke in the air. Fun thread, brings back great memories - I think...

Mea culpa. We are hijacking this thread unfairly. Let's get back to david1961's original question

What is the first music record you bought?
and someone can volunteer to start a new thread on first concerts - which is a great topic.

Saw Jefferson Starship in 1974. At least they had Papa John Creach with them

Strange... I don't recall losing any brain cells until many years later in college.

I remember borrowing the soundtrack from Easy Rider from a friend. My mom was what I'd call somewhat "out of touch", and I was able to BS... persuade her it was an anti-drug song...

I'm definitely young for this crowd. My first one was this one, Split Enz, a band from NZ, in 1980. The record itself was colored, which was very cool at the time.


And to really ruin my reputation, my first concert was to see Paul Young (he of the "Every Time You Go Away" fame. But oh, was he hot stuff to me at 13!

Magical Mystery Tour - The Beatles

I still have that album and all my others in the garage in boxes. I wonder how they've held up through several heat waves? Maybe I should take a look and see.
