1st Album you Ever Owned?

I hope this topic stirs up some great memories and further sharing of good music.
What was the first vinyl "LP" album you ever owned?

Mine was "Maynard '64" (Maynard Furgeson).  I was 10 and learning to play trumpet, and my dad bought this album for me.  He worked a lot, so it was really cool that he took the time to chase it down.

I cherished it and still have it, but it didn't take long to learn there was much better jazz out there.  In all fairness, I grew up listening to my parents playing Glenn Miller, Louis Armstrong and Tommy Dorsey - a pretty decent start given the general lack of recognition in the white middle class as to how African culture had molded the music they loved.

Please share your first LP experience!
All great albums, many of which I still listen to now.  First one I actually owned (jointly with my siblings) was Rubber Soul.  For me this is still one of the greats. Parents hated it, couldn't work out why the Beatles had made such a 'screechy, horrible', album.  Tried their best to get us to return it. We were adamant.
T-Rex, Electric Warrior.  Bought at Kresges. 5&10 in St. Pete, Florida with change from my piggy bank  - I THINK it was $1.25
The Supremes A Go-Go. Mono. Flawless record and jacket. Nope, just like it...not for sale.

Very enjoyable post! Have to agree "Nilsson Schmilsson" has stood the test of time better than "Yellow Brick Road." At least you had them both early on.

BTW I recall hearing way back then that pressed cardboard egg containers made a pretty good acoustical treatment for walls.

This is bordering on "true confessions."

Thanks. At 14, Nilsson would belt out "can’t live" and it would rip my little hormone charged body and heart apart. At that tender age however I had not the slightest appreciation of The Moonbeam Song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OTyuLj9RpY no idea the phenomenal acoustic art of Coconut https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsSuueEGQSM let alone the fascinating way Nilsson and everything is positioned center stage https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrUnYcPIvzM About the only other thing on there I couldn’t get enough of was the amazing drums of Jump Into the Fire https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfjNpgZ4C5Q Now in my 60’s I would put that up against any hard rock. Any. Its a masterpiece. Back then it was just an adrenaline kick. Today I can appreciate the full-on mastery of technique that makes this such a kick-ass rocker. And audiophile classic. All at once. Amazing.

Yes egg crates are exactly what I had. The ones a dozen per layer. In checkerboard pattern in areas on the walls. Started experimenting and learning about acoustics at 13. Necessity was the mother of invention. Even today. When you are willing at 13 to swipe mom’s old egg cartons (what was she saving them for anyway???!) its not much of a step to using Safeway rubber bands on your cable elevators. https://systems.audiogon.com/systems/8367

The system today is a little bit better. So is the vinyl. The sound of the Nilsson I am talking about now is a White Hot Stamper. https://better-records.com/products/nilssschmi_2005?_pos=1&_sid=691c0889b&_ss=r
