First single, first LP.

Recommended Posts

For all those of a certain age, what was the first single and the first LP that you bought? 

My first single was Jeepster by T Rex

On the strength of that I bought my first LP, Electric Warrior, also by T Rex

How about you?

Never bought singles, but my first album was Deep Purple "Made in Japan".  A brilliant live album, and still sounds great today.  After that I only bought Deep Purple records until I had them all, and then branched out into LP's from other heavy metal bands :laugh:

First Single; Slade "Coz I Luv You" 1971 I think, couldn't afford albums then in 1971, pocket money only went so far.

First Album; Roxy Music "For Your Pleasure" 1973 still got it somewhere, might be at my mother's house along with all the other old vinyl LPs

Haha. I remember that one. My dad threatened that he would smash it up if I bought that record. I didn’t chance it!

First single might have been "Nut Rocker" by B Bumble and the Stingers. Also had "Telstar" by The Tornados and the "Wonderful Land" EP by The Shadows. All from 1962.

First LP was probably a "Ready Steady Go!" compilation, spun off the TV show. I can see versions for sale online, but I don't recognise the cover or many of the tracks. I'm sure it had "Come On" by the Rolling Stones, "Just Like Eddie" by Heinz ... after that it gets hazy. It was a long time ago.

First single was 'Every Breath you Take' by The Police.  This was before the term 'stalking' was coined.  Now it sounds disturbing

First album was 'Seven and the Ragged Tiger' by Duran Duran, containing The Reflex, New Moon on Monday and Is there something I should know.

Image result for Duran Duran Seven and the Ragged Tiger

First CD was Blood Sugar Sex Magic by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers

still love this song and album

Can't remember my first download

First single I ever bought was 'Popcorn' by Hot Butter, which I bought at the same time as 'The Well Tempered Synthesiser' LP (which I mentioned further up the page) by then Walter, but now Wendy Carlos. This was at the start of the Moog synthesier era, which shaped electronic music ever since.

Keith Emerson in particular, of ELP, collaborated closely with Dr. Bob Moog in the development of various Moog synthesizer modules and Carl Palmer (still performing) developed the first synthesized drum kit, not bad for 1973.Some of the collaborations are now in museums!

 

This is a bit different to Popcorn!

First Single....The Animals House of the rising Sun which I played endlessly on a jukebox at Wootton beach Café on the Isle of Wight, then spent most of my holiday spending pocket money on the single around  1964/5 maybe..... the thrill of going into a proper record shop buying my very first single is something that I will never forget.

First Album...Rolling Stones,,Beggar's Banquet.

Still got both along with several hundred Vinyl Albums countless singles all original and still being well used
