"Yes" - Close to the Edge. Or maybe Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon.

Split Enz True Colors. 1980. It was cool because the album was prints in different colors. Probably why I liked it so much. I was also in the Paul Young fan club. I'm not ashamed of it--way more defensible than the Duran Duran club membership of my best friend.

Album is different than singles. For album: Cheap Thrills by Big Brother and the Holding Company; for singles, probably these boots are made for walking by Nancy Sinatra.

Ditto on Cheap Thrills! Still so amazing.

First Single was Yesterday the week it came out. I can remember copying the lyrics while listening to it over and over that evening. Still good but just a little overexposed in the past almost five decades

I did not have a stereo until after college. I believe the first album I bought was the Beatles White Album, but it may have been Sergeant Pepper's.

Ditto. I only had my parent's old gramophone player when I lived at home, then only a tape deck I bought from a 2nd hand shop up after until a few months after we'd graduated college and started work.

I also got tricked into the old Columbia records deal where you got a album for a penny but they billed the crap out of you for the other 11...lol

My first single was I Got You (I Feel Good) by James Brown, and my first album was Crimson and Clover by Tommy James and the Shondells. Got both of them in '69 when I was 13. I think my second single was Wipeout!.

I think the first album (vinyl) I had was the Top Gun soundtrack. I can't remember buying it but I suppose I must have done so.

STYX Grand Illusion. I think it was spring of 1978. Vinyl. First 8-track album shortly thereafter was Van Halen...don't remember the title, but it had "runnin' with the devil" on it. Parents hated it. Age 16.

Haven't bought music, albums or singles, CDs, even MP3s, in years.

'Photographs and Memories'. Jim Croce's Greatest Hits album in the fall of 1974 for 99 cents at the opening of the Sam the Record Man store, Pen Centre, St Catharines, Ontario.

Also bought Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon' and Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits in the same week at the same price.

Probably the Beatles "Yesterday and Today".

Should probably be in the Beatles thread, but I was surfing wiki yesterday, brushing up on my Beatles history. I knew that Y&T originally had the "butcher" cover. Mine has the travel trunk version. But what had escaped me all these years is that Capitol had pasted the new cover over the old one on some number, to save money. Just checked; my version is a paste over! Not in any sort of collectable condition though.
