My Dad used to buy me the no1 single every week, if it was the same, he'd get no2 instead, but the first one I actually bought myself was All Shook Up....Elvis Presley :)
And it was a 78 :lol:

Hmm, my parents got me The Chipmunks do the Beatles when I was 4... I don't think that counts. *I* however, bought Three Dog Night Live as my first album. Then, Rick Wakeman's Journey to the Centre of the Earth.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

He ripped that one off Rolf Harris. :lol: Rolf had a song in the 60s called "War Canoe" and the tune is almost identical. :wink:

Heh - it just coincided with the first time I had 'my own' money (pocket money :wink: ) and nicked mum's old record player, one of those ones in a case, if you knows what I mean - I used to toddle off to Pearsons (dept store) and sift through their record bins - no HMV in those days!

The first things I bought with my own money were Tarkus, Brain Salad Surgery and Red Octopus by Jefferson Starship.

My dad, god love him, bought me some Partridge Family albums and, for what they are fetching, I wish I still had them.

I've still got all my old records, although I never had any 78s.
The first UB40 album I bought had an hologram on the front cover, which was cutting edge back then!

Mind you, if you want to mention ye olde gadgets and systems (like 78s), I still have a working black and white marconi television!
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

Err, does that mean you actually have more than one UB40 album? :?

Sorry! :lol:
