I doubt if there are many people here who, when CD's first came on the market, immediately began buying CD's and never again bought a vinyl record.

More than likely, you glanced over at the little CD section in your favorite record store, then headed over to the LP's to do your shopping. For a few years anyway, releases came out both on vinyl and CD (and even cassettes for a while). After a time, however, you came to realize that CD's were the future, and you watched the CD section of the store get bigger while the vinyl section got smaller.

So, at some point you upgraded or expanded your equipment, and bought your first CD player and discs.

My question for the community is, what was the last vinyl you bought, and what was the first CD you bought? I remember mine quite clearly.

The last vinyl was Pink Floyd's "Delicate Sound of Thunder," from the "Momentary Lapse of Reason" tour. My first CD's (purchased at the same time) were Yessongs and ELP's Tarkus.

P.S. - I know people still buy vinyl for many different reasons, but my basic assumption is that most of us came to a point where we "switched over."

I assume that we are not counting used albums. i still buy those all the time.

Hard to nail down my last album purchased at a store because I bought about 50 at one time. The store was trying to clear their stock so they sold all LPs for a dollar each. I replaced some older worn out copies and some new ones. I know I bought SRVs whole collection. $1 a piece. Can't go wrong with that.

First trip for CDs, I picked up

Alan Parsons - Tales of Mystery and Imagination
Alice Cooper - Welcome to my Nightmare

My first two CDs were MFSL's EAP and Fillmore East. I listened close -- and yes, I could hear a difference!! (esp. on EAP). Funny that you mention this Droogie, just finished listing what my final albums were the other thread just now, but you said it well -- CDs came into rule -- and they should've I suppose, they do sound beautiful -- THE ONES BY CURRENT GROUPS ANYWAY. Some of the CDs of old albums sucked soundwise when they first started issung them. I'll always play my records -- never could understand why, just because CDs came along, people just seemed to pack away their albums & turntable. Not this boy!
Some of the first CDs I bought were The Seldom Scene's 20th anniversay show, Sunrise on the Sufferbus by White Rabbit (w/Ginger Baker), Martinis & Bikinis by Sam Phillips, Tubular Bells II by Mike Oldfield -- I don't really remember too specifically.

Interesting question and one which I do not have an answer. I bought both for a while starting around 1990. I just bought an LP last month at a show so I guess that might qualify.

The transition was traumatic and still reverberates to this day. I had a lot of LPs. So when CDs emerged as the media winner, it was hard to reconcile building acquisitions with replacing my LP collection on a budget. Hence, buying both. The result is some duplication with a lot of variance between digital and analog.

I just purchased a new turntable and am going back to the "both strategy". I have lots that is not on cd or vice versa. And as I have stated before, I miss vinyl.

Bought a CD player and bought "Goodbye Yellowbrick Road" and "Joshua Tree" as my first two CDs. Still own a few hundred albums....no player though....

Last LP bought was by the late Frank Edwards, "Georgia Blues". Bought in 1990 I think. He signed it for me a few years later. The LP was from a 1972 recording.

First CD: Show of Hands (Live) by Rush or Delicate Sound Of Thunder (Live) by
Pink Floyd.


Nice thread BTW

the last album i bought was a mail order thing called "the british invasion" or something like that. the first cd i bought was a 2 cd b.b. king set. i also love the vinyl stuff. when my husband was in viet nam, he bought a stereo system somewhere over there. he shipped it home a piece at a time. it consisted of a pioneer turntable and receiver, 4 coral speakers, and an akai reel to reel tape deck. it was quadraphonic, which was all the rage at the time. we managed to find needles for the turntable for a while, they finally got so i couldn't get them at all no more. that was about 1985 or so. the last time i checked on diamond needles that would work on that arm, they were about 25 or 30 dollars apiece. that was a while ago too. i still got everything except the reel to reel deck. it don't work but it's a nice reminder of him. sorry for the rambling.

The transition was 1986.

Last LP: Kiss- Strangers in the Night?(It was a japanese version where the SS was not the same font as other LPS- also Peter Criss was not on the cover)
First CD: Yngwie Malmstead

I was a little redneck in 86! Then came Eric B and Rakim's "Paid in Full"... then I was a lil wigga.

1st 45: "Joy to the World", Three Dog Night.
1st LP: "Ram", by Paul McCartney.
I'll skip cassettes and 8-tracks.
Last LP? Don't remember.
First CD: "So", by Peter Gabriel. A/B-ed it to the LP when I got it in 1986 and just about flipped at the difference I heard.

1st LP I bought was Big Brother & the Holding Co. - Cheap Thrills

1st CD - Joe Jackson - Big World If I recall this was recorded direct to digital in front of a live audience, invited on the condition they remained perfectly silent during the recording. Incredible sound.

Last LP - Can't remember, whatever it was before my first CD, because I never bought another LP after that.

I just can't recall the last vinyl.

I bought my first CD before I even had a player.

I was so thrilled to see Flowers Of Evil by Moutain again that I bought the CD on the spot.
