Another Beatles album; Yellow Submarine. Followed soon after by almost everything they've ever done.

Rubber Soul, by the Beatles! As I recall, this was the beginning of their foray into non-traditional rock and roll, and included the use of a sitar, and possibly some other Indian instruments. I think that this followed their "discovery" of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

Do you recall that, back in those days, most albums were available in your choice of mono or stereo formats? Since we had a pathetic little Webcor Hi-Fi that was monaural, I saved a few cents on each album by buying the mono versions. Of course, they never sounded quite as good.

This was my first album. I think I loved every song on there and I thought I was so cool when I bought it in 8th grade back in the '60's.

"Days of Future Passed" by Moody Blues.

My dad thought this was a way he could get a foot in the door to encourage me to listen to classical music.

It worked.

Do you remember your first 8 Track purchase? Mine was Best of BTO and Endless Summer by the Beach Boys.

to buy your very own album was a big deal.

Wow! I can't recall the name of the album, but it was Louis Prima, and the cuts included: Baciagaloop, The Anniversary Song, Hey! Ba-Be-Re-Bop, Josephine Please No Lean On The Bell, and Tutti Tutti Pizzicato. It was back around 1947 or so.

Let's see -- "Baciagaloop, he sit on da stoop wid-a Maria." And then he wrote;
Tutti Tutti Pizzicato, altogether won't you try. Tuttie Tuttie Pizzicato it's as easy as a pie."

And people say our songs weren't memorable and meaningful.

My first album was "Tommy" by the Who. Played it all the time. Do't have it any more, but bought the cassete in a sale bin and still listen to it. My first 8-track tape was Alice Cooper "Killer"

I had enjoyed music for years already, but basically my parent's music. Classical, easy listening and the Tijuana Brass---those were the choices. So to buy a rock aqlbum of my own was a big deal----the first time "my music" entered the house. PS----#2 was the first Led Zeppelin album, #3 was Steppenwolf's "America" and #4 was Iron Butterfly--Inna Gadda Da Vida. I could go on----I guess they made such impressions on me that I remember many of those albums today and when I got them.

Yes it was a big deal! It seemed like you had to be so careful of blowing $$ on albums that only had ONE song that you heard on the radio, and the rest was a crap shoot. Of course, at the time I had plenty of 45 singles, mostly Motown and Surfin' hits.

Gizmolito,

I think it was two birthday silver dollars, with change back, for the Mono album, to play on my parents' Hi-Fi.

The double album "Wheels of Fire" by Cream. It cost a whole 8 bucks and change at Thrifty Drug in Capistrano Beach. That required me to manually mow, rake and hand edge 4 big fat non tract home sized lawns, or wash, chamois and vacuum 4 big hunks of Detroit steel, or any combination thereof. My folks didn't believe in giving kids an allowance.

I still have that album and have never tired of listening to the live performances of "Crossroads", "Spoonful", and "Toad", although these days I don't listen to those cuts from the vinyl, as I have no turntable. Ginger Baker was/is quite the drummer.

I "came of age" in the 60's.. therefore I have a legitimate reason not to remember what the first album was that I bought.
But I remember the first FM station in Miami...
WBUS.. the magic Bus.. 92 on the dial....

One of the most memorable experiences in my life was hearing Benny Goodman at the Playboy Jazz festival in 1978. And one of our local gourmet pizza mini-chains is called Pizzicato. 40's music was something I got into later in life.

Uncle Vic:

Did anyone ever find your stash? I quess not, if it served its purpose.

First album that I purchased with my own money was a Harry Belafonte album, it had a red cover with Harry on the front wearing a green calypso shirt, songs included,Day-O, and what I think was the Banana Boat Song.

Can't remember the lst 8 track I bought, but maybe it was Rare Earth.

I also had a Lear 4-track before the 8 tracks came out.

Hello All,
Like Uncle Vic, I bought hundreds of 45's, and luckily had
brothers that bought albums which I would listen to.
The first one I bought was "Sweet Baby James,"by James Taylor.
As the brothers grew up and left the house, I would have to
replace the albums they took with them.
My father had high blood pressure would listen to albums to
relax. He was not an educated man, but very smart and wise.
He would listen to "Oklahoma," the musical over and over.
Because of that, I love that album. I bought them a VCR
when they first came out, and rented him "Oklahoma." He had never seen
it before. I think he prefered his imaginations version.
Take Care,
Fieldthistle

First record I wore out was one of moms old 78s. While bro and sis were off to school mom used to let me abuse her collection of big band / standards from the early forties on our little record player. One I played over and over (I don't know why) was "To Each His Own" by uinknown. By the time I was finished listening to it the center hole was about the size of a nickel.

My first purchases:
45 - "Beechwood 4-5789" Marvelettes
LP - "Meet the Beatles" Beatles
8 trk - "Truly Fine Citizen" Moby Grape
Reel to reel - Got 5 for the price of one + 1ยข from Columbia House
Cassette - don't recall
CD - "Decade" Neil Young
MP3 - been too busy making my own. have yet to uncover irresistible hole in my collection that would require purchase

Awww seeing all the references to the Beatles brought back a bunch of memories. I have love letters from my Daddy, who was still in high school, to my Mama where he quoted them. He loved her 8 days a week lol. He was such a Beatles fan that I'm even named after one of their songs. Except my daddy spelled it like it sounded, Mechelle. Needless to say, after hearing that song every year on my birthday I'm not a huge fan.

I did however take an old beat up 45 of that song and made a bowl out of it.

I was playing Led Zep #4, and my mom grabbed it off the turntable and threw it down the stairs, and said "How can you listed to that garbage?".. That is the only time she ever made a comment about the "new" music...
Hmm...
And Cream, and the Doors, and Iron Butterfly, and all that "new" music had been played while she was home..
I guess she just didnt like Zeppelin.
(God rest her soul)

My first 45 was Don McLean's American Pie. It was a real eye-opener to a girl who was brought up in a somewhat repressed environment. I didn't get some of the references until years later......

I never understood them either until I did some research. I liked his song Vincent and then got all swept up in this.

Oh, no, I wasn't hinting that there were any secrets. I just didn't understand the symbolism or the references to Buddy Holly, etc. Hey, I was brought up on Barry Manilow and the Osmonds, for Pete's sake. I never appreciated the Beatles at the right time, and many other bands until after their heyday on the record charts.

RE: Your First Album - Wed, 08/9/06 9:27 PM
I think one of the first albums I bought on my own was one of Peter, Paul and Mary's. I do know it was a third or fourth issue of one of their original WB albums. For a while, in the mid to late 90's, I went on a vinyl buying frenzy since my mother's vinyl was a) in very bad shape, and b) mono. In that time, I have gotten PPM in stereo with the original labels (gold for the first album through Album 1700 and green with WB or w7 logos) for the others.

I am picky about some things as I buy vinyl, like having original presses and stereo (if recorded that way). I have bought later presses until I could find an original. Voices in Latin (The Four Freshmen) is hard to find. I did get a copy with Capitol's "rainbow" label with the logo on the left until I could find the blue label (found one). The same is true with many others.

When PPM came out on CD, and their material was the first I remember getting on CD, I saw "remixed". I was afraid it was remixed into two channel mono. There was some tightening of the seperation, but the most that happened was the channels were reversed. The tube amp I use can put one channel on both speakers, or reverse stereo. I learned Paul's vocal parts that way, but as I play PPM normally, I still hear Paul more than Peter and Mary.

Since I have taken this thing off topic, I shall end this rant. This rant has been brought to you tonight by HH Scott.

First album: Rachmaninoff, Piano Concerto No. 2. What? It was the first one I bought! If you want the first rock album, it would've been Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon.

First 8-track: Best of the Knack.

First Cassette: Howard Jones - Dream Into Action

First CD: Jimmy Buffett - A-1-A

Ha ha I have to say my first album was KISS "Alive" (I was 10). Then came a steady stream of additional KISS albums (my parents hated them) and then came the Doors, Angel, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Kate Bush and U2 as purchases. I don't remember my first CD purchase.

My first stereo and first album arrived together. The album was Tito Puente. I had no idea who he was. But the album truly showed off the stereo's separation capabilities.

First 2 lp's were "Parsley, Sage" by Simon & Garfunkel and "Projections" by the Blues Project.

First concert was Cream, the Who & Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels at a Murray the K rock show in a theater on Times Square when I was in 8th grade around '66, then Led Zeppelin and the Dead in '68.

My first album was "Band on the Run" by Paul McCartney & Wings. I remember wondering why the actor from the Dracula movies (Christopher Lee) and Flint movies (James Coburn) were included on the cover.

As for Don McLean's "American Pie", I did a term paper in college on the meaning behind the song and still have no clue.

Oh, come on!!! Easy!!! It was about Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens!!! Waylon Jennings didn't get on the plane.

The day the music died!!

Did you pass, or are you kidding? [|)]

First 8-track: Best of the Knack



My, my my my my Sharona!!

And "us, us, us, us and... them" The first rock album.

Okay, I'll play...

Please don't hate me!!

The first album I bought was Shaun Cassidy. Can't remember the name of the album, but that was probably it!! When you are 12, things look different.

My first "rock" album was "Toys in The Attic", by Aerosmith.

I saw both in concert.

Shaun was boring.

Aerosmith was DRUNK!! AC/DC opened for them with Bon Scott. It was the "Highway to Hell" tour, but they were opening for Aerosmith, before "Highway to Hell" was a hit. AC/DC was much better that Aerosmith.

Concerts were different then.

Do you remember your first 8 Track purchase? Mine was Best of BTO and Endless Summer by the Beach Boys.


8 Track.. lol.. My buddy had a player in his car... But I disected the only tape for a "storage device"... Served it's purpose...



LOL! I am also of the 8 track generation. I remember my 1st 8 track purchace being Black Sabbath -- Into The Void. Their lead-off song? Sweetleaf. Alas, that was in the past...

Now, I am on a roll. Concerts. Anyone remember Uriah Heep? Saw in concert, among many others... Wish I knew what I know now back then...
