    With some very minor amendments - pretty much what Tony said!

    1979 - Rattus Norvegicus by The Stranglers. £4 from Vinyl Junkies in Darlington. I was on 25p pocket money a week, so it represented a huge investment.

    vague bit...

    Yesterday - Applause Cheer Boo Hiss by Land Of Talk. 73p off Amazon Marketplace. What inflation?

    Have to confess I had that - which is why i didn't do the "singles history" thread!

    My 1st was either 'Songs From the kids from Fame' LP or 'Happy Birthday' by Altered Images, quickly followed by an Adam and the Ants fixation.

    My last were both delivered yesterday: 'Dig Lazarus Dig' by Nice Cave & the Bad Seeds, and 'Live In Toronto' by Ween.

    In which case my history starts with Burn by Deep Purple and the Who by Numbers, both of which are far too boring.

    OK, mentally delete Smoke of the Water and replace it with 2112.

    FWIW, I mentioned Smoke of the Water because I can distinctly remember begging my family to take me to a record store so I could buy the song. For some reason buying my first LP hasn't been seared into my head.

    You listened to classic Rush when you were a kid? I think that only Canucks did that.


    Nah, it's Spocky.

    You think wrong, master


    This very early example of a bad photoshop fake is spocky indeed.

    If it's the one with 'Delihla' (spelling?) I had that too. Saw them at the Valley I think ('73?).

    Anyway I probably kicked off with Mowtown Chartbusters Vol.3 and the last album (this week) was Berkley Guitar. New Takoma on Tompkins Square and a bargain at $18 (with international postage).

    Going with singles rather than albums, ignoring novety records, the first proper single wiould be J Richman - Roadrunner, and the last one I bought yesterday was J Richman - New England. That has a nice symmetry, isn't it?

    The first album I could call my own was won in a raffle in 1978. It was a BBC released compliation, the best of Top of the pops. Not sure what the volume was. It had a skateboarder on the cover.

    The first album I bought out of my own money was Madness -One Step Beyond in 1979. I think I bought it from either Vallences on Chapel Walk or Boots in Sheffield.

    Last album I have picked up is an original copy of the Four tops Live! from 1966. Another one for the Motown Collection.

    There has been many thousands in between.

  19. Darth Vader

    Darth Vader From the Dark Side

    Sparky's Magic Piano on 3 78s's before 45 and 33 rpm came out! I still have these records but recently bought the same on CD so that I can listen to it. I think I still have a sound effects 78 that I used for many years when I did amateur dramatics stage lighting and sound.

    First LPs were Buddy Holly, Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran all bought at the same time second hand from our local Smokey Joes Cafe. Thats where we picked up the talent or 'birds' as they were called then on the local 'bunny run'. They (the LPs!) were played on our 'gram on which we installed a new Monarch auto changer with a 'turn-over' crystal cartridge and sapphire styli. The original player only went at 78 rpm and used metal needles. The silver ones were a once-only affair and the gold ones were good for 10 plays and being a tight wad tried to get 12 plays or so.

    Rather different from my last album 'Seven Last Words from the Cross' by MacMillan!

    Time were does it go........


  20. Gerontius

    Gerontius Forever dreaming...

    "The Ying-Tong Song" by the Goons in, I think, 1956. And that was on 78 rpm shellac! First vinyl LP: "Who's Sorry Now" Connie Francis ten-inch disc in 1960.

    My last vinyl - no idea
