Late bloomer here. I was in 8th grade back in 1978, bought Alice Cooper Killer from Kim's Comics and Records in Auburn, NY. I didn't have a proper stereo. I used to play it on a Show and Tell.
I still have the record.
The flex disc inside that book was my first album.
Actually one of their better albums.
The rest of the tunes are originals, all in "theme".
No real dross.
Looks like a real gem. Grew up with and loved those shows. Man from UNCLE has a special place in my heart.
I was in 5th grade when Beatle Mania happened. While I gave up on the Beatles early in high school, I did like them early.
My first album I can recall is a Beatles record.. but not on Capitol Records. Taste of Honey was on it, if that helps. I recall selling it a short few years later and some other records at a record store, and the buyer was very interested in my copy. Don't recall what I got for it. Even though I had scribbled all over it, it didn't seem to matter to this fellow.
Funny... I would have thought I'd never forget my first time... oops, first album.
First one with my own allowance cash was Bostons first right when it came out..1976 i think.. I remember reading the album jacket..it kept saying " listen to the album" played on a craig quadraphonic with 4 little speakers in my bedroom
I had bought 45's first but my first LP might have been Terry And The Pack, maybe
Blind Faith. My older brother (by four years) actually selected and paid for it, but since he requested my opinion at the time (and I wholeheartedly agreed), I consider it my first album as well. Has essentially been in my possession ever since (almost 50 years ... yikes!).
Billy Joel Glass Houses. I think I was 11.
Something by KISS, I'm sure.
I’ve seen that a gazillion times in GW stores!
Pink Floyd. The Wall.
We may or may not have rolled a few doobies on the open double album cover......but that's a story for another day.
My first album purchase was Foghat fool for the city or a Kiss album. I'm not sure?
Beach Boys "Little Deuce Coupe". Bought it at the first Tower Records. Opened Sacramento Ca in 1960. Cost me $2.33. Stereo copy.
My Dad brought me Meet the Beatles (Capitol Records mono) in 1964 from a business trip to NYC. I was 6. I played the heck out of it on my toy jukebox record player. Been rockin’ ever since.
Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers
It was a birthday present in 1971 that I asked for.
