        I'm with you, saddledrider - I think mine was probably one of the Tijuana Brass albums.

      Believe it or not, I have absolutely no recollection of what the first record I ever bought was. I cannot even tell you what the first tape(music) was either or even what was my first "cd" that I bought.

      One reason, not worth remembering. It's irrelevant in the scope of the rest of my life. Therefore, discarded to add space for more relevant stuff in need of remembering.

      Cool question though for those who can remember. I'll leave it at that. lol lol

      With my first babysitting pay @50 cents an hour I bought Blue Velvet by Bobby Vinton. Cost me a whole dollar. 
      Bought a hamburger for 30 cents and a cola for 15 cents at the drugstore  teen hangout.
      Man I was rich.
      9th grade. I'm 60 now........

      OMG and I thought my Town Without A Pity was so dating, this one of yours beats mine, I think, or maybe not, they may have been around the same time certainly in the same era:0)  I use to carry my portable 45 record player all around with me and go to dance parties in each others homes. LOL

    Mine was a single, bought with my pocket money: 'Sailing' by Rod Stewart. I played it on repeat for weeks and weeks until it was worn out.

      IzzyMposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      The original of Sailing by the Sutherland Brothers was actually far better IMO though I enjoyed Rod's version too.

      1. camlo profile image82
        camloposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Yes, I'd forgotten about the Sutherland Brother's original version. Maybe I prefer Rod Stewart's version for sentimental reasons ... it was a particularly nice time in my childhood. Not that I ever listen to it nowadays ...

    My first ever record was either Little Arrows by Leapy Lea or I'm Nver Gonna Fall in Love Again by Bobby Gentry.
    Ahhhh...to be 10 again!

          I went to UTube and copy and pasted the embed...but alas this is what came out. I would like to embed the music? hmmmm.  The one I pasted above is the video. It was a sad and romantic song in it;s day and a movie was made with the same title.

            saddlerider1posted 6 years ago in reply to this

            Okay I see above that you embedded the same one, hmmm how did you do that? well that's the song hope you enjoyed it. Gene Pitney was a star in his day along with Bobby Vee, Bobby Rydell, Paul Anka, Fabian and Frankie Avalon.

              just copy and paste the URL from your web address. don't bother with the embedding.

              I think my first that my mom probably bought for me was a Beatle song.

                    I wrote a hub about a band that I had never heard of until my friend took me to one of their concerts here in clearwater. maybe you know this song. I fell in LOVE with this music, it is so romantic and I couldn't stop smiling the entire weekend after I saw them.
