Really? you're saying "first records" means only singles? if so it's me who have to :oops:

It's says records plural - so it doesn't matter at all, especially as the sizes don't get mentioned :wink:

Reading my own quote back you could be forgiven for thinking that married couples were not allowed to reply to this thread :oops:

I wasn't feeling myself when I wrote that post.

Probably best not to pick up on that comment either Jan :lol: :lol: :lol:

Who? Me? Comment? About picking up? :twisted:

No worries on that score - I don't pick up after anyone. I do however subscribe to the Quentin Crisp method of dusting - don't do that either :wink:

Waking up in cold, wet, rainy and tonight freezing Manchester for over half a century only leads me to think that I have got all so wrong and you have it oh so right. You’re a lucky Guy Pooh :cry:

The first record I ever bought was 'Bobby Vee's greatest hits'. It cost 15 shillings and I had to beg an advance on my pocket money to get it. Played it to death almost.
The first single was the Rolling Stones cover of Chuck Berry's 'Come on'.

I used to like that song until some ass told me that every song ever written , in most peoples minds, pertains to sex. Or, that he and a bunch of other pervs spent inordinate amounts of time forcing any song to be an inuendo by finding things that they could force into a sexual context. NAY, I say that songs of peace and not killing each other and innocent songs DO EXIST!!!!!
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

My mother went spectacularly Librariandroppings when my sister scratched "I Love B. Vee" on the footboard at the end of her bed. At the same time, my favourite record was "Rubber Ball" (I was quite small).

I used to listen to all my bro and sis's records, but the first one I bought was Don McLean's Vincent. I'm fairly certain the first album I bought was Max Boyce Live At Treorchy.

To restore some street cred....

My brother was a huge West Coast fan so I listened to the Doors, Janis Joplin, Love, Country Joe and the Fish, Moby Grape...

My sister was a massive Motown/soul fan - Temptations, Four Tops, Percy Sledge, Oscar Toney Jr, Dusty...

Both liked the Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Simon & Garfunkel...

This was the first record I ever bought with my own money. A little while later, I bought my first album (on cassette, I hated the way vinyl got scratched so easily) "No Prayer for the Dying" by Iron Maiden, the album which contained the previously linked song. Looking back now, youthful exuberance is the only justification I can give. ;)

Ooooh first single Kate Bush, Wuthering Heights, I saw it on TOTP and it left me gobsmacked and in love. Kate doing all that wriggling had quite an effect on a 14yr old me!

And first album If You Want Blood by AC/DC which I then managed to get confiscated for annoying the pooh out of my parents by playing Whole Lotta Rosie over and over again at earbleed volumes.

My Dad brought me some headphones the next weekend and gave them to me and my AC/DC back as well as his copies of Aftermath (Stones), My Generation(Who), Autumn Stone(Small Faces), A Nod Is as Good as a Wink... to a Blind Horse(Faces), Sheer Heart Attack(Queen) and an album on the old red and yellow R&B label called Best of the Blues vol2 with Buddy Guy, Howling Wolf, Elmore James..... with the instructions "Look after them, give'em to your kids when it's time and don't tell your Mother"

My eldest is 11 and I update his ipod about once a month, the vinyl is still safe waiting for the time I think that he or his brothers won't trash them.
I'm also waiting for those usb turntables to drop a bit in price as it's a one shot thing really, once you've converted your vinyl then you don't need them again, or wait 'til one shows up in cash converters.
And Mum didn't find out 'til last summer when Dad asked to borrow The Faces back.

And in Sterio as well 8)


My parents have the original mono version. I understand that it might be worth quite a lot of money.

My first record was an LP. Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits. The title track is still amazing nearly 25 years later.
