The very first "serious" record I ever bought was Demons and Wizards by Uriah Heep. What was yours?
I do believe the first single I EVER bought was the 'Postman Pat' theme, the second was either 'Nelly The Elephant' by punk band 'The Toy Dolls' (backed by the excellent B-Side 'Fisticuffs In Frederick Street') or 'I Don't Wanna Dance' by Eddy Grant.
It was either;
Ebony & Ivory by Mcartney & Wonder,
The human league single that was the UK No1 at Chritmas '79 or '80 or
The UK Eurovision entry by Bardot IIRC
I'm hoping it's the Human League but won't be too embarassed by E&I as I was young, God I hope it's not Bardot

Um i joined Columbia House and i signed up for the 11 cds for a penny or whatever, and I believe the first ones i selected were Sublime-Sublime/Dr. Dre The Chronic/2Pac All Eyez on Me all of which I still like today!! This was probably about 8-10 years ago.

Queen: News of the world

The first record I ever bought was 'Orville's Song' by Keith Harris and Orville, way back in 1982. I was such a cool kid it was untrue...
Vinyl: Abba - Super Trouper
CD: Styx - Kilroy Was Here
Vinyl - Boston "Boston"
CD - Genesis "Genesis"
(hmmm, a weird coincidence never noticed before is that both album titles are the same as the band. Weird.)
Your music taste is superb. PWEI and the Toy Dolls. You and I have a lot in common when it comes to music. We'll have to talk punk bands some time (real punk, not that shoddy wannabe mtv crap.)
I think the first album I EVER purchased, was when I was a young, young kid in the 80's and it was a Beach Boys tape. (I was 6, leave me alone!)
When I became a teenager, my first RECORD was either Punk's Not Dead by The Exploited or Blood Suckers by The Varukers (don't remember which). My first CD that I bought years ealier I believe was Aerosmith's Get a Grip.
45rpm 7" single with a big spindle hole and picture sleeve:
David Bowie -- 'Heroes'
Also a 45rpm 7" single with a big spindle hole and picture sleeve:
Jackson Five, "Rockin' Robin"
God help me, I was a little kid. I didn't know any better.
This is a great thread! Brings back memories.

I was a weird little kid in the late 1970s.
So was that iTMS, Mini Disc, Compact Disc, Magnetic Tape, Vinyl or Wax Cylinder?
cassette (a single): Artist- Take That, song title 'Back for Good'
I think they were from the UK.
the first 45 i remember madly doing chores to make the money for was:
Tom Jones--"whats new pussycat?"
that's so embarassing...
Black Flag's Damaged
Metallica's Ride the Lightning
Boy were my parents thrilled!
If I remember correctly the first cassette I ever purchased was Pearl Jam's "Ten", first cd was I believe Gob's "To late, no friends...".
The first record I ever bought (actually, my parents bought for me) was a 45 of either (1) the disco version of the "Star Wars" theme, or (2) Debby Boone singing "You Light Up My Life". Be kind, I was only seven or eight years old.
I have no idea what the first cassette was. The first CD was, I think, Simply Red's "Stars".
Massive Luxury Overdose - with Army of Lovers.. hehe... I still think it's a rather good album. And I refuse to use the embarassed smiley
