Staying with our musical theme today...

Mine below. Thought I was a real (15 yo) rebel just owning it...my Dad did not approve having brought me up on classical from a very early age.

Fresh Cream, Disraeli Gears, Steppenwolf. Not sure which one I bought first, but those were the first three for sure.

Meet the Beatles in I believe 1963 or 4. Still remember watching their 1st appearance on Ed Sullivan show at my Grandparents. They were amazed at the reactions of the audience. Wonder if that was one of the first shows with screaming fans. Now every show has it - ever watched Ellen?

I'm younger than you guys: The Cars - Heartbeat City.

But the one that will make you laugh is what my Dad purchased for me as my 1st CD. Madonna - Like a Virgin. I think he just liked the cover...

Me too. I couldn't quite understand why my two (girl) cousins screamed through the whole thing...

I also had older girl cousins that screamed during Beatles songs on Ed Sullivan, and they raved over their Beatles boots. I didn't understand it at all

Coulda been Steppenwolf but mighta been Vanilla Fudge. Probably first bought in 1967.

But that is because I was not a buyer in HS. I listened to radio. My female cousins, on the other hand, had hundreds of singles.
