    The Album you wore out quickest

    For me it was Van Halen.  From the opening Riff to the last note I just couldn't get enough.  I still know every word to every song.

    Boston's first album. If this band woulda had more albums, I woulda liked them more. More Than A Feeling and Foreplay/Longtime were the first two songs by any band that I had memorized.

    Tcal and Numba and I seem to be from the same era ... Van Halen's and Boston's debut albums I completely wore out. Have them both on disc now and still regularly listen to them.

    Also the Pretenders debut. Also Born to Run.

            When I was 4 years old (1955) my parents gave me an old 78 of Hungarian gypsy music.  I had just learned how to use the turntable.  I scratched that album up so bad it had to be thrown out.

    Re: The Album you wore out quickest

    I treated all my vinyl badly.  Still have most of it, and I'm sure there are still ... ahem, seeds rolling around in a few of them.   But the first one I wore out from multiple plays wasn't even an R&R album, but rather the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's collaboration with a bunch of Country greats, a 3 disc set called 'Will the Circle Be Unbroken'.  Got lots of weird looks and comments from my mid 70's Suburban peers about it,  but that was part of the attraction.  The music on it is still killer too.

    Early Who albums,  'Happy Jack' in particular,  also got heavy, heavy turntable action.

    Never a big fan of Boston,  but friends wore out 8 track versions of that one back in the day.  Blew out multiple car speakers with power boosters - purchased specifically for that album - too.

    "Rubber Soul" - The Beatles...the first rock record I have any memory of listening to  (other than the AM radio in my mom's honda cvcc).

    Also, for some reason, I completely wore down the the 45 single for "The Show Must Go On" by Three Dog Night...to a kid it must have sounded cool.

    Not to mention the various 8-tracks reduced to tangles, especially The Dead's "Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)", and J. Geils' "Full House".

    The first one I wore out was the Beach Boys' Endless Summer, but the one I wore out the fastest was Bob Dylan's Blood on the Tracks.

    "The Impossible Dream" story of the 1967 Red Sox Season.

    I know it's not a music CD, but there was this great song about Carl Yastrzemski on side two and a poem read by Ken Coleman that brought tears of joy and sadness to the listeners ears ( provided the listen was a Sox fan..a Yankees fan would probably laugh) -cut it out, jesseyeric!!! , I am trying to be serious here!Laughing

    As far as music LP's go , I had a state of the art turntable with a cartridge I would keep weighted properly so as to not skip or cause excess wear. I used protective vinyl spray made special to preserve the vinyl and ensure minimal wear. I was quite a stereofile in the earlier days of my music collecting. CD's changed all that and I only worry about two things now, keeping the CD's clean, the laser dust free and not exposing discs to sun( those CD car visors are killers!)...wait, that's 3 things, so I never really wore anything out since I was about 12 years old.
