.... LP's you owned?

Inspired by the recent "desert island discs" thread but I won't limit it to 3, that was way too hard

Child of the late 1970's...off the top of my head:

Steve Miller Band - Fly Like an Eagle/Book of Dreams
Boston - Don't Look Back
Skynyrd - One More From the Road
Jackson Browne - Running on Empty
Springsteen - Darkness on the Edge of Town
Bob Seger - Night Moves
Supertramp - Breakfast in America
Gerry Rafferty - the album w/ Baker Street

I don't remember what the first album was, but I do remember playing the hell out of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida and Chicago Transit Authority early on.

I am ashamed to say ....KISS--Love Gun, LOL

My Mom who was a rabid Blues and Jazz collector and crazy ABB and MTB, ARS, Doobie Brothers fan but still took me to the record store and let me buy it being the "live and let live" person she was. She always let me make my own decisions. let me buy the album and I'm pretty sure wore earplugs for the next couple of weeks while I wore it out on her turntable. I also remember my Dad coming home from work that afternoon with a grimace on his face saying "Dear Lord what is that $hit....does she have the record player in the wrong gear or something!?!"

That year for Christmas I did get my own record player for my room though.......I assume so she wouldnt have to hear the different phases of "crap music" I went thru before I found my way back to HER stack of albums! ;-)

My older brother and sister were teenagers in the 70s and I was born in 1970, so I was surrounded by their vinyl as a kid. He - KISS, Styx, AC/DC, Van Halen, Pink Floyd, Black Oak Arkansas, Kansas, Bob Seger, Springsteen, Frampton, Sabbath, etc. She - KC & the Sunshine Band, Bee Gees, Grease soundtrack, Donna Summer, all the disco fare.

First vinyl I bought was Moving Pictures by Rush.

I don't remember the first records I bought because my favorite record since age 7 or so was Iron Butterfly's In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida which belonged to my Mom. Also my aunts and uncles left their records at my Grandmother's house so from that stash I found Woodstock movie soundtrack, Vanilla Fudge, Iron Butterfly live, Steppenwolf Live, half of ABB At Fillmore East (the record that has Statesboro and side 2 had Whipping Post), also I found GD - Live/Dead in there, I think my uncle liked the live albums lol. Now I do too. I bought Led Zep albums, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney and The Who pretty early on.

When I finally got a CD player in 1985 the first CD I bought was Billy Joel's Glass Houses, then Zep IV, Aerosmith's Greatest Hits, Van Halen 5150. I joined Columbia House to get a bunch of free ones. Is Columbia House still out there?

Edit: I do remember the very first record that I bought. It was the single Red Rubber Ball/Turn Down Day by the Cyrkle. It was 1966 and I was 12 years old. I saved my paper route money to get it.

Today my 12 year old grandson has an iPod that has a gazigibyte of music on it.

First album was Beatles' Revolver. For sure.

Less certain about the next ones. Probably the Bee Gees' First and something by The Hollies (Evolution?).

I remember my dad bought a sampler LP of tunes by orchestras and big bands which were good demos for stereo - "Super Modern Stereo Sounds" kind of thing. We had just moved from mono to stereo at the time.

When he got home, it turned out to be The Beatles' Please Please Me inside! It would be a bonus if it had been the really rare and valuable version - the gold and black Parlophone label of initial pressing. I must check sometime!

I received two albums for Christmas. The Beatles Rubber Soul and the Peter, Paul, and Mary's album that had the song "I Dig Rock and Roll Music". I'm pretty sure I was in third grade at the time.

A rather British selection....'Brain Capers' by Mott the Hoople was the first followed by 'A Tab In The Ocean' by Nektar & '16 & Savaged' by Silverhead. Oh & 'Iceberg' by Deke Leonard then 'Bad Co' by Bad Comany. I have to confess not buying my 1st ABB album 'til I was 17 - 'Brothers & Sisters'.............never looked back!

The first albums I ever had I received together as gifts. They were Meet the Beatles and the Beatles Second Album.

The first album I bought for myself out of my own pocket was Big Brother & the Holding Co. - Cheap Thrills.
