    Midnight Madness by NIGHT RANGER (featuring 'Sister Christian')
    I was 12 I think.

    Now you can go ahead and lie about how you bought "Never Mind the Bullocks" or something cool like that.

    But not me.   

    YA MOTORIN'!     WHAT'S YOUR PRICE FOR FLIGHT !?!?

    Despite me being rather young I think I bought the Joshua Tree by U2 because my dad used t ohave it and took it on a business trip to america and lost it somewhere in Detroit/New York?Toronto (he works for GM but went everywhere in the early 90s)

    I used to listen to U2 on his CD player that I had to treat like it was the most expensive thing in the world.  I can remember sitting there in front of the hifi being extra careful not to break it.  Anyway, I bought the Joshua Tree for both me and my dad.  Must've only been 10 years old too, birthday money went to a good cause!

    My first album bought by my mother - 'The Man with the Golden Arm', 1955, Elmer Bernstein, Decca Records. I wish I could find it on line, but never have been able to.

    Led Zeppelin IV back in 1972.

    I rode my bike 10 miles to the next town that had a small department store, I think Woolworths, that had an album section.

    I was so excited, it was hard to save the money to purchase it.  But when I got there it took me forever to figure out which one it was.

    Summer of 1966, I was 12, the album...En Direct de L'Olympia...by Mireille Mathieu...we still lived in Belgium. I used the 5 Canadian Dollars my Grandma had sent me in a letter along with the mega earnings of my first job (pulling Dandi-lions out of the lawn, with root attached each gave me 5 Belgium francs)
    You wonder how rich I got? (not very) 1 USdollar in those days was worth about 50-52 Belgium Francs...Ahhhh! the good old days.

    Gosh...it was so long ago.  I'm going to say "If You Love Me, Let Me Know" by Olivia Newton-John.  I was, like, 11 or 12.
