What was your first record?

The first record I ever owned: ‘At the Hop’ by Danny and the Juniors ( just listened to it, and it made me get up and dance!)

The first record I ever bought myself: ‘Meet the Beatles’



At the Hop - a Great song having all that made late 50's rock so much fun

Had lots of 45s  The first one I obsessed voer (and drove my parents crazy) was Pearl Baily It Takes Two to Tango, at 5 years old  Fave 45 - Maybe Runaway Del Shannon or Runaround Sue by Dion

First couple of LP's

Harry Belafonte at around 12 years old, Van Cliburn's Performance of the Tchaikovsky 1st Piano Concerto that won him International fame and the Moscow based Tchaikovsky Competition

Beatles 65

Mary Robbins Gunfighter Ballads 

Still have and listen to the Marty Robbins and the Van Cliburn

First 45 I bought I think I can still remember> "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" Looking Glass. My granny had bought us the first Beatles album. And my dad was into big band so I listened to a lot of that, especially Three Little Fishes.

My parents were into theater (they were off and on president/vice president of the local Children's Theater) and had the original Jesus Christ Superstar album. Wish I still had that. Still love the album.

First LP was "Made In Japan" Deep Purple. Hmm, maybe I had an Ian Gillan obsession?

Next was Sly and the Family Stone's "Fresh".

Grand Funk's "We're an American Band" was up there too.

Cheap Trick

Live at Budokan

Played on my ultra low end TT/8 track combo unit.  Can't remember the brand to save my soul!

Probably RUSH 2112... but it was sooooo long ago and sooooo many albums now I truly can`t remember.

1st record: a 45 of The Beatles "Can't buy me Love"

1st LP:  E,L & P; Pictures at an Exhibition.

Still have the LP and a better British pressing.  45 is long gone ...
