The first record you ever purchased legally?

Recommended Posts

Back in the day.... when things were so much better :ph34r:

My old man used to have one of these in the house. It was the cutting edge of technology at the time. It combined both a Radio &  Record player all in one... xD

Image result for old record players

It had 3 ( yes 3 ) turntable speeds 33rpm 45rpm & 78rpm for all the oldies in the house... There was of course some manual involvement involved to play a track You had to tape a coin to the stylus to stop it skipping across the record for starters. The single also normally came in 2 parts. The Record itself and the pop out plastic middle part which allowed for playing on different decks... They came in different shapes and sizes so the fun never ceased.. 

HOME PAGE ADAPTERS

Anyway... 

What was the first Record you ever purchased legally??? 

This was mine. It kick started a huge collection that I still own to this day...

Laughed a lot at Bluewolf's post though. xD

I used to listen to old records, radio and stuff well before that, but the first ever record I bought myself - it was actually a cassette tape, to be precise - was 4 Non Blondes - Bigger, better, fast, more! in 1992. I bought it solely for "What's up" after seeing it numerous times on MTV, of course... The whole album was shite.

Growing up, I listened to old records on a 60's Telefunken record player + tube radio cabinet of my parents/grandparents, hehe. Looked like this:

It was absolutely brilliant, although I always wanted a Grundig instead as it looked so much cooler. Had some reel-to-reel tape recorder around the same time as well, but only for a short time, and then spent most of my childhood/early teen years listening to music on a Pioneer cassette deck. Never learned to appreciate CD, to be fair. Ah, good times.

The first cassette I ever owned was 'Queen's Greatest Hits' but that was a hand-me-down. CD? I believe the first I purchased was Green Day's 'American Idiot'. I think when I was very young I was given a copy of 'Backstreet is Back'. The first device I owned was a Sony Walkman, years later I owned a boombox and a CD Walkman, then when I was about thirteen I believe I owned my first stereo. At 14 I graduated to one of the very old iPods.

 

To be honest, I'd love an old Sony Walkman.

The lid on mine broke, so I had to tape it shut or put something on top of it. :( It also sucked when it skipped.

I genuinely think it was either Gwen Stefani or Nelly Furtado. I was about eleven. I know that's not a good enough excuse.

Marshall Mathers LP which is kind of fucked considering I was only 9 years old and bought it from a guy who sold pirated CD's in my dads local pub.

Brilliant tune!  Same as 'Video Killed The Radio Star' by The Buggles.

Another complete vinyl collection that I have is all the Bon Jovi stuff including their single picture discs.

So was Nick Carter's brother actually any good?

I'm well aware it was a shameless rip off - I was simply recalling the gash that was on there, NOT condoning it!! :banana:
