First album you ever bought? First CD?

My first album was dual purchase in 1979: Tom Petty - Damn the Torpedoes, and Kiss - Rock & Roll Over. Oh well, one for two.

First CD purchase was Rush - Permanent Waves in 1981. I don't even like Rush, but it was the only DVD that "Musicland" (the now defunct chain in my crappy small town mall) had and my father had purchased a player so I had to try it out.

Album (c. 1973) - don't remember. It might have been a Jim Croce album, or maybe a Beatles album. Or maybe Jesus Christ Superstar.

CD (c. 1988) - a collection of Mozart string quartets.

Interesting. So far I think the winners for best debut CD purchases are ken_572002 with the Allman Brothers, and EdTheRipper with one of the most solid CDs of all time: The Black Crowes -Shake Your Money Maker.

First album - Police - Synchronicity

First tape - Def Leppard - Pyromania

First CDs - Debbie Gibson - Out of the Blue / Electric Youth

All of them were gifts from my parents along with a record player, tape player and CD player respectively. I've got no clue what the first albums were that I personally bought, though.

First CD: Boyz II Men: II

I don't recall ever buying a tape. I know I bought a few dozen blank tapes to make mix tapes.

I've never bought a record or 8-track.

Oddly, I was very cheap and never bought any albums until we got our first CD player...

So my first album/CD is: R.E.M. - Out of Time
