    Paul Simon's Graceland.

    This was back when CDs were about $17 each and CD players were $250. And despite that, they were totally, totally worth it.

    I was given a Yamaha CD player by my parents as a birthday gift, so I bought two CDs straight away. Prince's 'Lovesexy' that had just come out and Joni Mitchell's 'The Hissing of Summer Lawns.' Love Robben Ford's guitar work on 'In France They Kiss on Main Street.' How old was he then? About 10?

    Bob Marley's Rebel Music, in the mid '80's when CD's were typically $40 each and it was on sale for $19.99!

    The Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music which is a six CD set. It wasn't readily available until the Smithsonian reissued it. It is what prompted me to start buying CDs.
    I then got some Document reissues of some old blues stuff, especially Charlie Patton.
    I didn't like and still don't like the sound of CDs as opposed to analog sound of vinyl.

    I had four cd's for a few months when I first got a CD player, and can't remember which came first. Terrance Trent D'Arby's first album. King's X - Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, Triumph - Classics, and Frank Zappa's Overnight Sensation/Apostrophe.

    First one was Boston's first album "Boston". Second one was AC/DC Back in Black. I bought them within a couple of days of each other. After that, it's a blur...But I wish I still had all the CDs I have ever owned, though... :(

    Crazy thing is, that's Chris Robinson doing the old "shave and tuck".

    When CDs became available in the 80s I held back for a while. But I determined that my 2 most favorite albums would be my first purchase. Those being Sgt Peppers and Morrison Hotel.

    No, but it was probably something by Clapton.

    My first record player was a tiny little box with tubes in it.

    I would watch the tubes glow while I listened to the music sometimes.

    Joe Jackson's "Body and Soul" in 1984 - A great album with awesome production values. It has aged well, IMHO - I still pull this disk out and listen to it sometimes. It's on my iPod as well.
