    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.

    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!

    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' 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.
