    ... mine was:
    Rypdal/Vitous/DeJohnette
    because I liked the song "Den Forste Sne" so much.

    Mine too!

    Actually, birthday money in hand, I bought two CD's that day, from Musicland at the Mall-- Siamese Dream and Dr. Dre's "The Chronic."

    Ah, to be 14.

    This wasn't the first music I purchased (that would be a Tribe Called Quest's "Low End Theory" on tape) but my dad was a vinyl stalwart and we didn't even have a CD player in the house until I was in High School. I bought tapes because I thought records were embarrasingly old fashioned...man do I wish I had some of the stuff I bought on those long eaten tapes on vinyl! (Pops always told me tapes were a waste of money, he was right)

    The funny thing now is, my pops loves CD's, and I regularly buy vinyl. Go figure.

    When kids my age were listening to green day, eminem, 50cent etc. my dad bought me my first cd.
    I still think it was the best cd that the band ever produced and it's my favorite cd of all time by the best band in the world.
    It was How the West was Won by Led Zeppelin. Changed me indefinitely and got me playing the guitar. Opened me up to all sorts of music. It was my gateway into real noncomercial music.

    The first cds i ever bought were The Beatles-Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band and The Beatles-Yellow Submarine. I bought both of them at the same time at a Barnes & Noble in Jacksonville,Florida when my family and I were visiting my sister in Florida.

    Beach Boys - Endless Summer. I was just amazed at the purity of the harmony vocals on things like "In My Room". Still am.

    And on the CD they tacked 'Good Vibrations' at the end which is cool but a little out of place (overall the comp sticks to the innocent stuff).

    I love Endless Summer. I regard that as a proper Beach Boys album in its own right, like the red and blue Beatles collections - they're much more than mere best of cash-ins.

    No.

    I remember having a wind-up gramophone with these clay 78s of Gene Vincent, Bill Haley, Little Richard, etc, and then switching to vinyl, first 45 I bought (by myself) was a Beatles record in '63. But I can't remember getting our first CD player let alone first CD.

    Never regretted it for a moment and it helped my learn how to play during my teen years. Of course, the 16 year old I was in those days could NEVER resist that picture of a girl's bikini bottom.

    It was The Culture Club and the song I wanted most Time was not on the CD. Back then to stop the pirates they withheld tracks from the CD to force album and cassette sells.

    Van Halen's OU812, in 1988, was my transition from vinyl. I still have a bunch of my albums stashed in a milk crate, but haven't owned a turntable in years.
