This is such a great thread Endo!  I was really into the Beatles and Wings from my dad’s record collection in the 70’s. So the first album I picked up was Wings-Back to the Egg in 1979 when I was 8. It was…not a great Wings album.


Then I distinctly remember buying these 2 cassettes around 10…

Quarterflash-Self-titled
The Rolling Stones-Tattoo You

The latter resulted in an awkward exchange with my mom when I asked her what “Little T&A” meant.  Quarterflash was just bad 80’s music.

First record I bought with my own money was this gem on cassette, Camelot Music, Atlanta GA c. 1988. Still listen to it fairly regularly 8)

Wings at the Speed of Sound is also a huge one for me as a kid, but it belonged to my dad (I now have his copy on vinyl). I also had the Thriller 7" (and still do) but my parents picked that up for me earlier as a gift, for spinning on my Fisher Price player ;D

   :D :D you don‘t want to know what I listened to in the early 80s

this gem on cassette
INXS, still like ‚Never tear us apart‘ a lot. Sad end for Michael Hutchence, though.

I listened to A LOT of INXS in junior high/high school. Listen Like Thieves was the one I remember most. Throw in some Cure/Depeche Mode/Smiths and I may just teleport back to 1987

TOO MUCH PRESSHA!

So good.

INXS, still like ‚Never tear us apart‘ a lot. Sad end for Michael Hutchence, though.

Yeah for real. That documentary on him is great — such a sad story. F'n hell what a good lookin' guy and absurdly talented performer! Truly one of those charismatic rock stars.

My first album purchase was a heavy metal double header at the tender age of 14... also with record tokens @IH-GARY  :D

I believe the first CD I ever owned was a "clean" version of The Eminem Show, via my half brother (ca. 10 years old) :D. The first CD I ever bought was Demon Days by Gorillaz, via K Mart (ca. 12 years old). Other standout formative albums that come to mind:
Heroes, Bowie
Guero, Beck
Elephant, White Stripes
With Teeth, NIN
The Sky's Gone Out, Bauhaus
VU and Nico
Pink Flag, Wire

Thriller on vinyl when it came out.  My dad bought it for me.  My brother who was 5 at the time got a Willie Nelson record.  Both solid choices then and now.

My sister bought this for me for Christmas. Still possibly my favorite present ever.
