    Your very first music purchase

    What was your very first CD, MP3, Tape, 8-track, LP or 45 that you ever bought?

    Mine? Hot Rod Lincoln by Commander Cody.  25 years after I bought it, I finally saw Commander Cody perform the song live at Johnny D's.

    A vinyl album, Washes Whiter Than, by Petra.  I was in junior high and totally into Christian rock.  I lived in Florida, and there was a good contemporary Christian radio station in range.

    Saw them at the castle in Disney at one of their "Night of Joy" concerts - 1986 or 7, I think.  Micheal W. Smith was there, too, but I don't remember who else.

    Re: Your very first music purchase

    Sting was my first CD purchase.  Nice memory, though, yoga - I'm impressed!!

    My first music purchases of any medium, though, were all the LPs by Petra.  I thought the question was to cover whatever medium your first purchase was, not to ilicit a response for each type.

    Can't recall. 

    I was a tape dubbing, record company's worst nightmare.  I bought TDK D-90's and Maxell XL 2 90's by the dozen and went crazy on my double cassette boom box.

    45. Ballad of Davy Crockett by Fess Parker. I never did get to see the second episode of the Disney's TV show about Crockett - the one with the river pirates - until I was much older. The first time it was on, I was sent to bed early because I called my mom a s**t for some reason. This did not go over very well. The second time it came around, I did something else and was punished similarly.

    Anyway, I did get that 45 and played it over and over...and over. I still would like to know how Davy was "killed in a bar when he was only three." ;-)

    This was only the beginning, as I now have hundreds upon hundreds of CDs and other recorded media (not even counting computerized files). However, I have no way of playing one of those old 45s!

    "Secret Agent Man", 45 by Johnny Rivers.  Have NO idea what ever happened to it.  A close second was "King of the Road" by Roger Miller.  Man, have my tatses changed !!!  Now it's mostly jazz, blues, and classical

    Two cassettes on my first solo trip to Strawberries w/ paperboy money:

    Ratt - Out of the cellar
    Motley Crue - Shout at the devil

    That was some pretty bad-ass stuff to this then-13 year old.  Still listen to them every once in a while too!

    Re: Your very first music purchase

     The first time I ever purchased music with my own money actually required a bribe. My mother didn't want me to buy it, so I bought her the soundtrack to Footloose.
     I got myself the Out of the Cellar album from Ratt, on cassette.

     The first time I ever picked my own music, though (my mom bought it for me) was a few years earlier on a hot summer day on State St. in Chicago. Back then you couldn't drive on that street, so shops set up on either side. 
     It was Escape from Journey.
