I can't get over you young guys missing so much, glad I didn't.

I recall the high price AND selection of CDs, they were NEARLY $20USD when new, and there was no rock, only classical at the outset of CD music. If you loved classical, you were in paradise. BUT, the vintage CD was 16bit Red Book PCM and had some bad quality that was not refined for a few years yet. The CD players were around $600 initially, as it seems DVD or Digital Video Disc was at it's own debut (1997) CD was in early 1983 I believe, or some of 1982, but not all of 82. In fact, Sony's initial Walkman cassette portable was 1979 as I recall.

I got a majority of KISS albums because a friend of my Moms was working with Ktel or PickWick International so they got some records for me nearly free, or something, it was fantastic. My folks were not fond of KISS by any stretch, or secular rock. I was in a Church going Christian setting and I had to argue the merits of secular rock. I think things turned out well in the end

You see, while the young may have missed out on some great releases, there were albums released in the 1990's and even 2000's that people get excited over, and some treat them with the same warm reception as you did with a KISS record. I know I did; the feeling of buying your own CD with your own money and going home with it, eager, is something you can't compare to anything else, and regardless of what the CD is that feeling of warmth and nostalgia carries through everyone, regardless of time period and taste.

Mine was “(What the story morning) glory” by Oasis when I was 11. I’ve just started listening to again and I still quite like it.

I was trying to rack my brain and come up with my answer, and you nailed it for me. "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" was also the first album I bought myself, and a great album it is.

@makeshyft: Cloud Nine is a quality album. icon14.gif

Mudvayne - The end of all things to come

I was traumatized in confusion from this album, but it got me started into hard core.

Okay, the real first CD I ever bought.

I was only 8 or 9 when I got my first CD player. Didn't even listen to it much. I was trying to get my hands on a Rob Zombie album, wasn't allowed.

I was on allowence until I was out of school, so sue me, but I still grew up in the best era of music, however, people older then me could appreciate it even more... There's some truth in that circle of life, but interesting even more how it all came about on the musical timeline. Each generation adding layers. It did stagnate in the late 70s and late 90s... Most notably

Oddly enough, I can remember these two purchases from the eighties but I can't remember what was the first CD I bought. It was probably a Metallica Album. I suspect "Kill em All" but I can't be sure.

sh*t man I can't even remember. I didn't start buying CD's till I was about 14-15, I didn't have much music interest until then. I think it was a NOW CD or something.

I bought ALL my Metallica collection on LP, record 12 inch! I just got an email saying LP records are again making an impact in sales, cool!!

I bought And Justice For All as the audiophile pressed DMM edition. I still have that. Bought LOAD II on LP as well.

Have the Whiplash EP which they love to mark up! They sell all these LP EPs at increased cost these days

My first CD was Savage Amusement from the BMG CD compact disc club. I started via that method. Anyway, that was easy to recall, got Led Zep Physical Graffiti after that. That one is still here, but scratched ALL TO HELL

My first was a tape. More specifically, a Jordy tape. For those who don't remember, he was some child singer from France, who was big sometime in the early 90s. Can't find an image of the cover though. And the cassette has been lost for at least 16 years.

The first album I bought was Myths Of The Near Future by Klaxons. alien.gif

The first single I owned was Make Luv by Room 5 (because my step dad bought it for me when I was 8 or 9) I remember always watching the video because it reminded me of Vice City. inlove.gif It hit #1 here in the UK and Oliver Cheatham even sang on Top Of The Pops. smile.gif

The first single I bought was Still Figuring Out by Elliot Minor. ph34r.gif
