Think back, back, back all those many years ago when we had 45's & LPs and record players. Do you remember the first LP you ever bought?
(Not bought by your parents or older brother or sister but YOU)

Well I do actually remember the first LP I bought with my own little money. I was only 9 or 10 years old. It was by Bobby Vee and it was called "Rubber Ball" I had a little crush on Bobby Vee because I thought he was so cute. I really liked the song "Rubber Ball" (also title of the LP) which was a big hit for him and I liked all the songs on the LP.

Good question! I too remember that first LP I bought.
Donovan - "CATCH THE WIND" Then I kept buying new Donovan albums whenever they were at my local record shop. And Donovan was REAL CUTE TOO! :-) Loved his voice, loved his songs and yes, it was his
LP "CATCH YTHE WIND" GREAT PHOTO OF HIM ON THAT LP COVER!
I still own it as well as all of his albums! Ah yes, I am a huge DONOVAN FAN. :-))

My first LP was West Side Story - the stage show, before the movie, about 1960. And my first single was Tom Hark from Elias and his ZigZag Jive Flutes. That was on the Hit Parade in about 1958.I still have them but don't play them now.

I don't remember my first LP, but the first record I bought was a single for my 12th birthday in 1964.

It was Little Pattie's double A-side He's My Blonde Headed, Stompie Wompie, Real Gone Surfer Boy yeh yeh yeh yeh / Stomping at Maroubra - one of Sydney's iconic surfing beaches

today I dunno why as I never liked the sun & beach & could barely swim

Think back, back, back all those many years ago when we had 45's & LPs and record players.

Back, back? You been in a record store recently? Take Piccadilly Records in Manchester (UK), which is now mostly vinyl. Even in the mainstream bands are releasing their album on vinyl as well as CD these days. Our records of the year are Love Letters by Metronomy and LP1 by FKA Twiggs - naturally we have both the CD and the vinyl versions for our in-car & domestic pleasure. The covers are nicer on vinyl too! The new David Bowie single comes in a nice 10" edition with unique extras...

Anyhoo, my first LP was Gorilla by the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. I got it with a token for Xmas 67 when I was 6. Still a great favourite, though sadly my original is long gone...

A cheap label (Ace of Clubs I think) issue of Buddy Holly's Decca recordings in Nashville. It was called That'll Be The Day and contained the original solo version of that song recorded before the Crickets remade it and credited to Alison/Holly as the writers - not Holly/Alison/Petty as in the crickets recording. It would 1964 or 65 when I bought it.

I can't remember exactly.
LPs were expensive, and my pocket money for a long time was only 20 pence per week..
I had to wait for birthdays and xmas, when my parents did lovingly overindulge me,
even though they were low wage earners..
So I got most LPs on the wish list I eagerly presented to them.

I reckon the first LP I bought myself, would have been on a cheap budget lable.

Quite possibly Decca's "The World of David Bowie" compilation.
That dodgy one with the Ziggy Stardust era cover photo,
concealing cash-in contents from his mid 60s Anthony Newley soundalike phase.
Or, that mono for stereo processed MFP The Move "Fire Brigade" LP
with a really excellent 'best of' track list.

But I definitely do remember the first 7" singles I saved up for and bought myself.

That was a serious moment of transition from mere kid to real teenager.. circa 1972...

Lindisfarne - "Lady Eleanor" [the re-release] and "Son of my Father" - Chicory Tip.

That combination of 7 inchers indicating my lifelong affinity for droning folkie neo-psychedelia
and insistent analog synth riffs & grooves...

Big Al. "lightning hopkins one side/sonny and brownie".

That was Lightin' Sonny and Brownie, and it was released in Britain on the Society Label. SOC 1009 in fact. It was recorded in 1960 at some coffee house or other in Los Angeles, and various other bits of that evening came out on various labels. The whole shebang was, I think, eventually re-issued on a Capitol double CD.

Whatever. I thought it was absolutely bloody marvellous and best of all it only cost ten bob.

Here's the tracklist.

Introduction. Lightnin' Hopkins.
Big Car Blues.Lightnin' Hopkins
Coffee House Blues. Lightnin' Hopkins
Stool Pigeon Blues. Lightnin' Hopkins, vcl, gtr
Ball of Twine. Lightnin' Hopkins.
Blues for Gamblers. Lightnin' Hopkins/Brownie McGhee/Sonny TerryBig Joe Williams
Walk On. Brownie McGhee/Sonny Terry
Blues from the Lowlands. Brownie McGhee/Sonny Terry
Down by the Riverside. Brownie McGhee/Sonny Terry
Blowin' the Fuses. Brownie McGhee/Sonny Terry
Right on that Shore. Brownie McGhee/Sonny Terry/Lightnin' Hopkins/Big Joe Williams

Yep, that's Big Joe Williams on Blues For Gamblers and Right on that Shore. He wasn't credited on the LP, but he did in fact do his own set that night.
