The band Iron Butterfly formed practiced a block down from a friend of mine, in the Clairemont neighborhood of San Diego. We'd hear music coming from the garage. I'm pretty sure it was Pocahontis street... maybe Coconino.

Ok - this is embarrassing. I think it was Olivia Newton John... maybe John Denver.... I was only in 7th grade, so you have to forgive me.

Then I discovered real music. My first albumn that I wore out - Ziggy Stardust.
All my babysitting money was spent at used record stores and Tower Records.

I not only remember the first record I ever bought, I still have it.
Rama Lama Ding Dong

From back in 1958, it's a 45 rpm on the Dub label in a plain white sleeve.
The Edsels was the name of the group, and this was the earliest release, with the title misspelled on the record label as "Lama Rama Ding Dong."

Yeah, not a huge difference, but still ...

The Edsels - Rama Lama Ding Dong

+1 Tomita's Bermuda Triangle was pressed on peach/coral vinyl.

First album I bought for someone else was Nilsson's The Point. She still has the album, and I still have her...

Do you think of The Beatles as "Paul McCartney's old group"?

I had a laser cut version of that Split Enz albumn. I used to drive my parents nuts with singing "I hope I never". over and over again.
