Mine was a set by the Cure called Integration. It contained the CD singles for "Lovesong," "Fascination Street," "Lullaby," and "Pictures of You" off of Disintegration. And it came with a poster!

Yep, I was one cool 7th grader.

Use Your Illusion I and II.

I was ... 14? (I think it was 1991.) I looked 12. There was one of those parental advisory stickers. The clerk didn't seem to care much.

Britny Fox-Self-Titled and not ashamed of it ) . . . anymore
in December of 1988 when I got my first CD player. First cassette was Adam & The Ants-Prince Charming, first record a 45 of Steve Miller Band's Abracadabra I believe both in 1982.

When did everyone else get their first CD player?

The first compact disc I bought was "Cats" (Broadway Cast Recording) and the "Chariots of Fire" soundtrack.

Christmas '90 - Sony shelf stereo with a 5 disc changer and a turntable! Thanks, Santa.

I actually got my first CDs before getting that stereo. I would use my brother's CD player.

Weezer.

I am not really sure why I bought it on CD though, because the only person that had a cd player in my house at the time was my sister (a cheap Craig boombox). I can remember dubbing the cd onto tape and listening to it on the way to school for most of fifth grade. I am glad that I bought the CD though, since it is one of the only albums I bought as a young kid that I have still hung onto.

My first cassette?

I think it was a single of Motownphilly by Boyz II Men. Yeah, my tastes have improved a lot since then...

My first cd player?

Not counting computers, I received a (what seemed to be light) 3 or 4 lb Sony Discman in 1996. Then, in 2000 I bought one of those Aiwa Mini Systems with the cd, tape deck, and radio. I hope to one day build a traditional component "HI-FI."
