Just curious what your first-ever music purchase (that you bought with your own money) was (and what format it was in).

For me, it was probably this:



on cassette tape.

Although it could be this one



(also on cassette) which I remember was one of the very first titles in my collection.

You?

Mine was a Debbie Boone album. The one with "You Light Up My Life" on it.

On vinyl? Or 8-track?  BounceGiggle

I never owned an 8-track but I remember envying kids who did.

This was mine: cost me a whole ZARand 40 (about $4) and yes, I still have the vinyl. I also have it on CD.



The song Procession scared the crap out of me as a kid and it continued to do so until my special sister told me years later that the sound I thought were ghosts coming out of the speakers was in fact an Om chant.  TeddyR

The other first purchase I made - not really musical, more a keepsake - was this:



Bought it on vinyl in 1981 and I still have it.

The Cowsills. I was a kid with Christmas money. I bought it on vinyl -- when it was originally released. It is long since gone.

Plus, I had a HUGE crush on the daughter of the family. Probably should have followed through on that crush. She turned out to be a regular hottie.



And here's Susan Cowsill all grown up:

Wow....uh....I remember being desperate to get Spellbound by Paula Abdul when I was fourteen, and throwing a fit to get driven over to get it.

I believe it was these two singles on cassette circa 1991:


I had terrible taste in music for a while after that, but I think I can stand behind these two songs.

Now, the first music ever bought for me I remember quite clearly. That would be this on LP:

on cassette tape...

I had that on vinyl (also the red one) and they had the lyrics printed on the inner sleeve.  I sold my own copies just about 20 years ago when I sold a lot of stuff and moved into this house... interestingly, my own favorites on that wonderful collection are the least favorites by most  (like "Don't Let Me Down").

My first vinyl album was the Car Wash Soundtrack. I wasn't even a teen yet, my parents bought it for me.



By the time I earned my own money CDs were all the rage. One of my first CD purchases was Kool & the Gang's Ladies' Night (1979)



I was always into soul, r&b, hip hop and *cough* disco. According to my friends back then I had the uncoolest taste in music  BounceGiggle but I didn't care. My vinyl for Ladies' Night was worn out. The last song on side B, "Too Hot" had a continuous hiss with a few crackle and pops. Listening to it for the first time on CD was like a revelation.

I didn't buy albums on tapes. I was a mix-tape guy. I would spend hours making mix-tapes in my room, putting songs in prefered order etc.
