  • I think it was 1995 or 1996 but I bought "Ten" and the "Oceans" single. I was obviously not very knowledgeable buying a single when I could have bought Vs. or Vitalogy. Funny thing is my brother had all the CD's and I could have just borrowed them.

    Almost bought a Journey CD on accident because it was in the PJ bin at the time. Would have been a terrible first CD choice!

    columbia record and tape club cassettes Molly Hatchet Flirtin With Disaster was in there for sure. Breakfast In America. a fucked up Houses of the Holy tape was in there too. it started in the middle of the first song of side one, and ended with the beginning of the same song. long stolen from me.

    I had a bunch of 45s as a young kid too, Disco Inferno by the Trampps and I Want You to Want Me by Cheap Trick

    I was 8 or 9, and bought Sgt. Peppers at a garage sale. Rainbow or Spectrum edition. Sounds cool except I did not know who they were by name. F me. Full disclosure, unfortunately my next selection was the Partridge family or Donnie Osmond. again, F me. Cool question. Peace

    That was my 2nd cassette purchase. I followed suit with Master of Puppets and became addicted right after the release of the black album. Listened to them daily on the bus ride to and from school.
