"Deja VU" Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.

First 45: (remember those?) "Incense and Peppermint" Strawberry Alarm Clock.
Still remember the day: Rode up on my motorcycle wearing soft sole moccasins (yeah, I know...idiot), striped bell bottoms, see through flowered shirt...put the record on the back of the bike strap. Groovy.

Albums were too expensive. First single (45) I remember buying (and playing over and over on the console "Hi-Fi") was "One" (is the loneliest number that you'll ever do) by Three Dog Night.

I guess that is my theme song for life!

I bought three of them: Foghat's first, Aerosmith's "Toys in the Attic," and Jethro Tull's "War Child." Over time, I became a big fan of Jethro Tull.

It was 1965 ad I was 10 yrs. old. First album was Herman's Hermit's on Tour. Funny thing about this record-there was not a single live song.

Shortly follow-upped this purchase with the Beach Boys Live and Help (Beatles).

I remember that one. Fripp et al. Quite a way to start off. It took me a few years before I got into that territory, myself. Bent my brain a little, but it's all good. What is youth without a little alienation.

Still have this on vinyl, though I've digitized it for modern use.

Loved that one and still have the vinyl version. Had to grow into that one though. You sure started outside the mainstream.

As best as I can recall, since it was the 70's, I believe it was James Gang Rides Again - 1970

Meet the Beatles. I think they went to be fairly successful after that.
