Hi Indigo,
I quote your last phrase because I also like 45's and booze! we're not alone, I guess we should start a thread about it (what do you like to drink with, how much do your TT is alcohol resistant etc...). and please when you have time do share some pics of your 7 inches.
regards

Kindsaluv I'd love to though I don't have any picture disks or anything they just look like 45's but I don't know how to post pictures here in you're response like a lot of people do. I'd like to do it I just need some 'splanin'.

You can upload directly on Vinylengine goin in Gallery - > record covers then you will see on the left "new Image" where you can upload your pics.
or if you have uploaded a pic somewhere else ( e.g. I use blogspot) then you use the full editor of the post and choose the button Img

I'm pretty sure that the first 45 I bought with my own money was the 1974 or so reissue of "Surfin' U. S. A." by The Beach Boys, on orange Capital label. I think that was at Sears. About the same time, my older sister gave me her copy of "Georgy Girl" by The Seekers.

I'm pretty sure that my first album purchase was on a buy one get one for half price deal at Wherehouse Records in Santa Monica, "Revolver" on green Apple label and "Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits".

Funny I don't recall the name of the first CD, but it is Dukes of Dixieland. CD selection was pretty slim pickings in the beginning.

I still have all of the above.

Wrong topic, but I am sure this is allowed. As SPFFFAN mentioned he does not remember his first CD, I do.
In 1987 we were on holidays in the USA. For a lot of us the period to decide to go over to CD or stick to vinyl. As we did not have a CD-player, I saw those long-box CD's in a shop. Never saw those before, but I was told the plastic box was inside. As the first 8 Beatles (up to Pepper)CD's were available, I risked it, bought all 8, Creedence Cronicle and Big World from Joe Jackson. Back home, the next day I bought a CD-player.

That's interesting. I remember there being a protest movement against EMI because the Beatles catalog hadn't come out on CD. But by 1987, I guess it was. I think my first CD player and disk was in 1984 or so. I DO recall that my first Monkees CD was a German import Greatest Hits collection. It took some time for the record labels to begin to fill in the back catalog with CDs, and in the USA, pressing plants were slow to come online.

Cheers,

David

My first single was "Battle of New Orleans" released by Jonny Horton in 1959. The record was chucked by my parents when I enlisted in the military in the middle 60's along with almost all of the remainder of my stuff. Oh well it just water under the bridge.

That is interesting! How can someone from Germany have had What a crazy life from the Cats as his first single...? I mean, the Cats became popular abroad with One way wind and others, in the 1971 period, and What a crazy life, not even a big hit in Holland, is from 1966......

and I`m from 1956.

At the time - I think it was 1968/69 - you could still collect waste paper and then get money for it. The dealer had a box of singles in the store and this one was the first in the box and I still had 50 pfennigs - today 25 €Cent.

Hi Roland,
Thanks for that explain. I am from 1956 too, what a good year!
As you know the Cats were a a Duch group (although there was a UK group as well called the Cats, they had just one minor hit), which were popular in Holland and other countries roughly from 1966 to 1975. The peak of their success was with songs like Lea, Marian, Why, Let's dance and One way wind. Some of those were done in German as well. I have all their hits, including the one you have!
