What were the first LP and single you bought............

edited March 2009 in Not Sports Related
and what happened to them? Rooting through the 'stuff' in the shed today and came across my box of old 45s: found a case to sit on and went through them. Almost every one has a story to tell, especially the 60's ones. This led to digging out the old LPs: even more memories. The first single has survived, 'Rebel Rouser' by Duane Eddy and so has the first LP: Elvis (Rock 'n' Roll No.1), though lots of others have disappeared , many flogged at school to buy fags with, some nicked by my brother, and other taken to jumble sales by my mum. But those two have made it! Any others? (There will of course be some sort of generation gap thing here I'm sure!).


  • First single - Please Please Me by The Beatles
    First Album - Sgt. Pepper by The Beatles
    Would have liked all the Beatles albums but pocket money wouldn't stretch that far.
    Paper round paid for Sgt Pepper.
    Luckily my best friend had an older brother who always had all the latest sounds, so I never missed out during the 60's.
    Used to sound great on his bass-heavy radiogram, unlike my trebley Dansette!

    Spent most of the 70's buying up all my favourite 60's albums.
  • It wasn't the Wombles, that's all I will say.
  • Didnt have a lot (any) of pocket money as a nipper. Ahhhhh

    My first single was almost certainly, Dance with the Devil.........Cosy Powell, along with Music...........John Miles.
    my first album........ I remember buying Derek and Clive live on cassette and my Mum finding/playing and chucking me out again :(
    But I'll stick my neck out here and say, Sing something simple by "The Mike Sam Singers" on the K-Tel label, and I possibly nicked it from Woolworth's. ........ ..................only joking Officer..

    LP - A T.REX Greatest Hits on Music for Pleasure (?) label
  • edited March 2009

  • Single Telstar The Tornadoes (alias Joe Meek). I remember it clearly as we went to Woolwich to buy a gramophone at the same time and were allowed to choose a record each as well which cost six shillings and eightpence! My sister bought Bachelor Boy by Cliff Richard.

    Don't remember my first LP for sure but was many years later, very late sixties or even very early seventies, and would have been something by one of Cat Stevens, Simon and Garfunkel, Paul Simon on his own or Bob Dylan.

    I've still got it ....(!)

    First album new, was the Beatles double White album. It cost a lot of weeks paper round money, I can tell you.
    'Revolution No9' was my favourite track, certainly appealed to a 13 year old, lol
