Nothing is treasured more than the first rock record you ever owned! The one that changed your life and made you aware that you can spend all of your free time idolizing others because they make real good music.

What was the first rock album that you had when you were a kid and how did it affect your life?

Mine was BEATLES 1962-1966 (the "red album"). I had it on cassette, i inherited it from my father, who didn't (and still doesn't) have any other good items in his own wretched music collection! Of course that got me started into the Beatles who still are the first band I've ever listened to.

By the way the abovementioned cassette was a cheap plastic apple/capitol tape that desintigrated in the late 80s. However I believe my father thinks the tape is still around, alive and well... He might ask me again if he can get it back!

If the Monkees count, it was their 2d album(I was 7; what did I know?). Didn't change my life. Would rather count Led Zep 2 a few years later .

Filmore East, almost positive it was Filmore East.

My roommate back then would put on In-a-gadda-da-vida every damn morning, at about 6 am!!! before he went to work.

Rolling Stones "High Tide & Green Grass" (or something like that). I think it was a compilation. It had "Satisfaction", "Time Is On My Side", "19th Nervous Breakdown", etc. Shortly after that I got "The Cry Of Love" by Hendrix. Then a friend turned me on to the ABB and life hasn't been the same since!

Hmmm, let's put the "memory cells" into gear. The first rock n' roll record that I can remember that I personally bought and owned for myself was The Beatles "Rubber Soul" album. I was thirteen years old and living in Orleans, France. Remember hearing lots on good "rock and roll", on my old tube Grundig radio, listening to Radio Luxembourg which was a "pirate" radio station that was on a ship in the English Channel. Damn, it's funny the things you remember.

Let's see, since Mighty Mouse on 78 doesn't count, I'd have to say my first rock n' roll album was Meet the Beatles...

First 45: The Beatles - Hello Goodbye/I am the Walrus

First LP: Creedence Clearwater Revival - Cosmo's Factory.

Didn't take Rock n' Roll for me to realize the power of Music I started Trombone
and Piano lessons in the Third Grade. And have sang in my Church Choir since
4th Grade- children's - youth -adult. Sang this morning in My Church Choir.

Music is a gift, a blessing from God , if you can get your head and heart arround that.

When I was growing up, My father bought me every Beatles album as they were released. The first R & R Albums I purchased with my own hard earned cash? Led Zepelin 2, "Whole Lotta Love" & Quicksilver Messenger Service "Mona"...

The Beatles' Second Album was the first album of the group's work to be assembled by Capitol Records exclusively for the American market (as opposed to, say, Meet the Beatles!, which was a reconfigured and shortened version of With the Beatles). As such, it offends some historical purists, who don't think of it as a real album. Regardless of its origins, however, The Beatles' Second Album stands as probably best pure rock & roll album ever issued of the group's music. In the process of pulling songs from various British and American EPs, singles (including "She Loves You") and B-sides, as well as tracks left over from the editing of With the Beatles for American release, the compilers somehow managed to avoid any trace of the pop ballads favored by Paul McCartney that usually slowed down the group's other early albums, and the result was the longest uninterrupted body of hard rock & roll and R&B in their entire output. No other long-player by the group featured them doing more covers of songs by black American artists or songwriters, including Little Richard("Long Tall Sally"), Chuck Berry ("Roll Over Beethoven"), Smokey Robinson ("You Really Got a Hold on Me"), Barrett Strong ("Money"), and others, and just to show how rich a vein this all was at the time of its release, the version of "Roll Over Beethoven" here actually charted briefly as a single, while "Long Tall Sally" served as their concert finale.
-------------------------------------------------------




It was 1964, I was 8 years old........me and my Grandfather walked to town in Douglasville, Ga. . I had earned the money cutting grass in our neighborhood. We had a small record store in town and thats where I wanted to go. The Dude said "This is just in from the Beatles, it's the new one" . I think it was around $ 5.00...I got a couple of singles also.

I would put on a long haired wig and get my little plastic guitar and I was the Beatles...........


I played that album over and over and over.........

I got this one a few weeks later:

and then I was a cool little Dude !

"Honky Tonk Women" was a 1969 hit song by The Rolling Stones. Released as a single on July 4, 1969 in the United Kingdom, and the next day in the United States, it topped the charts in both nations. "You Can't Always Get What You Want" was the single's B-side.

In my humble opinion, the greatest rock n' roll song ever recorded...still has the same effect on me today as when I first heard the song in the summer of 1969.

Wham! by Lonnie Mack


< chirp chirp chirp >

OK ... ya got me ... that was actually Stevie Ray's famous
"first record".
I think mine tended toward something like "Leaning on a
Lamp Post" by Herman's Hermits ... regrettably.

I got my first LP album when I was around 8 in the early 1980s and it was either Billy Joel Glass House or Pat Benatar Crimes of Passion.

I still have the 45s I bought when I was a kid. I bought Eye of the Tiger, Whip It, and Heartache Tonight - Not sure which one I bought first.

I always liked music alot when I was a kid, but as an only child I did not have anyone to turn me on to anything. I was just influenced by whatever the radio was playing, lucky for me I listened to a decent station and not some disco crap.

I just recently got in a Pat Benatar kick and listened to her again. Funny how things work full circle some time.

So I didn't buy anything real cool when I was a kid. My first CD, maybe when I was 12, was Alice Cooper Show. I bought it instead of We Sold Our Souls for Rock and Roll. I never did buy We Sold Our Souls, but instead, eventually, bought every other early Sabbath CD and still listen to Alice Cooper Show so all is good.

My first record was a 45 of the Doors ' Light My Fire' given to me by my older cousin when I was about eight with a stack of other 45s. For some reason I don't remember the other records. I used to try and drum along on this cheesy toy drum set I got for Christmas. Used to drive my mom crazy. My first actual album that I bought was Kiss Alive.

The first rock n roll record that I ever had was probably some BeeGee song...I Started A Joke, but the one that changed my musical taste and didn't even know it was happening was a 45 of The Weight by Aretha. Wish I still had all those discs.

The first rock album of my own was Billy Joel's 52nd Street, I think. A bunch of Beatles came soon after, and had a little more of a lasting impact. We already had quite a few Beatles records at home, but my first ones were 67-70, Introducting the Beatles, and Abbey Road.
