    The first real music album I ever owned was the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever. The first album I ever bought on my own with my own money was Escape by Journey.

      Ahh, that would be Peter Gabriel's 3rd solo album and a very good one too.

    It was a 45 of either the Star Wars theme b/w the Cantina band or songs by ABBA or The Bee Gees. Yes, I was a child of the disco era. The '70s may have sucked, but I had a good time. (It was better than being an awkward teenager the '80s - yuck.)

    LP: a complete recording of Lily Pons singing Lucia di Lammermoor. Others in the cast included Richard Tucker and James McCracken, and it was conducted by Fausto Cleva. I still have it. Yes, my tastes are strange. Sue me. ;)

    45 of Tell It Like It Is, 1966, Aaron Neville

    Come to think on it, that's still a great song.

    If you bought the 45, shouldn't you be able to get it on MP3 for free?  Shouldn't it be OK to get a digitial download for free of anything you bought on Vinyl or Cassette, or 8-Track?

    I'll never forget the 8-track tape deck in my sister's car.  It was hidden in the glovebox and you had to stick a folded up piece of paper between the 8 track and the player to get it to work.

    45 - "Peggy Sue" (B side: "Everyday") - Buddy Holly

    LP - "Elvis"

    CD - "Graceland" - Paul Simon

    Remember how an 8 track tape would end in the middle of a song and then switch to the other side to finish the song?  And we thought it was great technology?

    "Sweet Baby James" by James Taylor. Was 8 and walked downtown to the Rose's Department store, where my brother worked. I had money and wanted to buy my first album, and he recommended that.

    Still have it, in fact.

    I must be getting old because I can't recall exactly. For years I've sworn it was Led Zeppelin II, but the more I think about it I'm starting to think it might have been Cosmo's Factory. Both vinyl of course. Then again I talked my cousin into buying Downtown by Petula Clark with her money years earlier. Does that count?
