Not with your parents' money, with your own.
Mine was Pink Floyd's animals on cassette.

Newt! What a coincidence, I first bought Dark Side of the Moon on a cassette because I wanted to hear it without scratches, like on my parents record player. Purchase #2 was the Grateful Dead Mars Hotel.
I think tapes were like $10-$12 then.

I don't remember my first album or tape, but my first cd's (bought in '88, I think) were Eat A Peach and Electric Ladyland. My first album might have been Steve Miller 'Fly Like an Eagle' or maybe Zep's Houses of the Holy. Slipping out by the fence, getting baked, panicking over lack of Visine, playing 'pong' and listening to Zeppelin. 9th grade. I know one of the early ones was "Apostrophe" by Zappa. Or 'Overnight Sensation", I forget which.

Wow! I don't know. Using my own money is a tough one, but it was either LED ZEPPELIN II, one of the solo Beatle releases from the late 70's or the Blues Brothers Briefcase Full of Blues... I can't remember what.

That Elton John 11/12/70 is an excellent album. (Or whatever the date is)

Great question, and some great answers, a lot of folks that got started the right way. At the risk of showing my age, mine would be Deep Purple - Machine Head, a pretty good R&R album...

During one of my journeys through England/Scotland, I was staying with a very dear friend in the Yorkshire area, and she had the Elton John 11/12/70 recording. I remember listening to that, and if I remember correctly it was damn good album.

The first record that I bought with my money (paper route, mowing lawns, etc.) was probably either a Monkees or Motown (Marvin Gaye, probably). It was probably a 45, too. The first album that I bought was a Simon and Garfunkel one. I did buy all of the Allman Brothers Band stuff as it came out.

I too bought lots of 45s (also Monkees and Motown, Rusty!) before I bought an album. Remember those little plastic doo-hickeys that went in the 45 holes? My kids came across one when cleaning out my Mom's house and asked me what it was, I just laughed!
The first album I remember buying was The Beatles- Rubber Soul, probably with birthday money.

I think one of the first albums I bought was a Sly & The Family Stone album, followed by Hendrix. I grew up with a guy who would steal albums, so I bought many from him very cheap. I was buying alot of albums in the mid to late 70's for $3.95 tax included at a place called Mother's Music on Long Island.

Mine was The James Gang-Rides Again. I lost almost 2500 albums due to a fire in 92. I have repaced this one on CD.
