Jeez this takes me back, my first was This Flight Tonight by Nazareth.

Bought from Woolworths with a record token (remember them) I had been given.

The first one I bought with my pocket money was The Doors: Riders on the Storm. From Boans in Medina, Western Australia in 1971.

However my first single was one Beatles record my parents bought me in 1964? Along with a little plastic record player (Younguns read Crossley haha) I played the singles I got over and over and over....

Yeah - well I'm a sucker for lists and such. As I imagine all vinyl geeks are. So I had to go to my special room, open the special cedar chest, get out the special white 45 sized storage box with all of the carefully packed 45's are and dig out my first TWO because I can't remember exactly which one came first. Probably the Beatles - as I purchased these brand new at a store that is, sadly, no longer. I'm too lazy to look up the dates they came out. But here is the photo.

My first single was Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas "Little Children", b/w Paul McCartney's "Bad to Me". Imperial recording. Spring, 1964. And yes, I still have it.

I think I was about ten. :)
You had excellent taste back then.

I believe my first purchase was The Foundations "Build Me Up Buttercup". I was young and impressionable.

The first single I bought with my own money was "Love Stinks" by The J. Geils Band. I really liked the sound of the guitar on the intro.
My first LP was Queen - The Game.

My first single I bought was from Donaldson's the Ironmonger in Grantown-on-Spey in the Highlands of Scotland which was a typical sixties hardware shop in which there was a variety of goods for sale including vinyl......the single I bought was "She's Not There" by the Zombies...still have the single and still think it's a great piece of music by a great band!!

It was long age, shortly before the Beatles and the whole "British invasion", when I was about 13 years old.
My parents had just recently given me a fairly decent portable "record player"
It even had detachable speakers. I thought it was great. :)

Anyway, the nearest that I can remember, it was either...

The Marvelettes - Please Mr Postman.
or....
James Brown - Try Me
or....
The Miracles - Shop Around

The Beatles She Loves you,swan records.Back then when a 45 skipped you put a nickel on the tone arm for more weight.The 45 still plays after all that abuse.Maybe we started out with a penny for extra weight,can't remember,just remember taping coins to the tonearm.
