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’



Not counting the scores of 45 rpm Beatles records and their first couple LP's that my siblings and I bought together, I'd have to say:

1st: Jefferson Airplane: Crown of Creation

2nd: King Crimson: Court of the Crimson King

Went to visit a friend one Saturday when I was eight and wound up spending the afternoon in his older brother’s room listening to rock and roll 45s. Begged my folks for a copy of Dion’s The Wanderer. My first LP was The Beach Boys Surfin’ Safari, which I received as a gift. The first LP I bought myself was Bob Dylan The Time They are a’Changin. I was 10 years old and shoveled snow for the dough.

A 45 of "Sky High" by Jigsaw.

I'm a 21st century digital man now.  I own absolutely no vinyl.

LP: Magical Mystery Tour

45: Incense and Peppermint

I sold flower and vegetable seeds door-to-door for my spending money in the spring and summer.

In the fall I raked leaves.

In the winter shoveled snow.

First record my mom bought me (age 7 or 8):  Kiss - Dressed to Kill

First record I bought myself (age 9):  Rush - Farewell to Kings
