What is the first music record you bought?

Here's the first record I ever bought. Had absolutely no idea what the lyrics meant at the time!! Still love this song.

It's funny...I can't remember the first record I bought. However, I do remember the first record that was played on the first record player that came into our house. It was the 60's...I was a kid...I wore this record out!

The first music I bought was 2 albums; "Meet the Beatles" and The Yardbirds first album which, I think, was "Having a Raveup" but I'm not positive of that.

1st single: Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever
1st album: Mason Williams's Music

Note: There were many great records in our household, that I did not myself buy, but played and enjoyed immensely, before I ever went out to buy my own. I started a collection then that is now huge (vinyl, cassette tape, & digital).

"For What Its Worth" Buffalo Springfield. (CSN)

Walked into the record store with my striped, button fly, hip hugger bell bottoms and see-through puffy sleeved flowered shirt, soft soled, fringed moccasins.

Man I was cool!

Probably around 1942 or 1943... When the only records were "seventy eights".

"In Der Feuhrer's Face"... by Spike Jones... My Christmas Stocking money, and bought at W.T Grant...
Played it over and over and over and over.....

Being the youngest sibling by 6 years, I grew up listening to the tastes (and records) of my elder siblings, which was fine with me (At that age, what the heck did I know about music anyway?)

First album I recall buying on my own was Bridge Over Troubled Waters. Still have it.... someplace.

I know the Beatles' Yesterday was my first single. I think my first album was Cheap Thrills.

Rubber Soul! Just was talking about that the other day - I think I was in 7th grade.

My first record came as a gift: Buffalo Springfield
The first record I bought with my own $$ was Steppenwolf, followed soon by Cream Disraeli Gears.
