To elaborate, I was given alot of records before "purchasong" that Zeppelin lp. THread title states bought. The very first records I was ever given was a gift for my 6th birthday (belated at that)
They were a Batman story album with book binded into record jacket, Commnader Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen-Hot Licks Cold Steel and Other Trucker Favorites, and Allman Brothers Band-At Fillmore East.

Same here. My dad handed me over his record collection when I was but a small fella. Lotsa 45s and and albums. Mostly 50's and 60's stuff. The first artist I remember kinda getting into on my own was Huey Lewis & the News. I didn't hit the harder stuff till high school ('85).

First album was a K-Tel breakdance record. At the same time was the first cassette a K-Tel metal album. Which led to my first proper record purchase of Ozzy Osbourne's Diary Of A Madman on cassette. First true album was Joan Jett & the Blackhearts I Love Rock N' Roll. First .45 was J. Geils Band's Centerfold.

My first cd Boston's Third Stage was clear back in 1986. My brother had gotten a player for his birthday. It cost a fortune and the discs were like 20 bucks. Soon after got Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet and John Cougar Mellencamp's Scarecrow. Then discovered that the thing ate D batteries like crazy. Didn't get another CD till 1989 when they came down in price.

I definitely had music long before I bought any. The first album I remember is Zubin Mehta Conduct the LA Philharmonic Orchestra - Suites From Star Wars and Close Encounters Of The Third Kind - That was released in 1978.

I also remember my brother playing lots of Alice Cooper and one older kid in the neighborhood had Black Sabbath's Paranoid and some AC/DC. Another older kid had tons of Styx and Journey albums. These all kind of circulated between us but I never had any cash to buy albums until I was in high school.

The first CD I bought with my own money was Blizzard of Ozz in 2001. It was the last CD issue that did not feature the re-recorded drum and bass tracks, a debacle I was unaware of until the last few years.

The first album I ever bought was Def Leppard's Hysteria. The second was Run DMCs King of Rock.

From the beginning, my tastes were varied.

The first new album I ever got in that I had to take off the cellophane (my mom probably was the one who shelled out the money for it) was Business As Usual by Men At Work. I was a big fan of them when I was a kid and had a poster of them on my wall. I remember being fascinated by the photos on the inner sleeve and song lyrics. I'd never seen that before because all the albums I had were from the 1960s or KISS albums that didn't have those kinds of inner sleeves.

The first cassettes I bought new with my own money were Van Halen's 5150 and Iron Maiden's Somewhere In Time (purchased at the same time). I was happy with the latter because it opened up to reveal the artwork. I was used to buying vinyl. I had just got a Sony Walkman and thought I'd have to sacrifice the cool LP artwork when buying the cassette.

I don't remember the first vinyl or CD I purchased new with my own money, but the CD was probably in a long box (remember those?).

Moving Pictures was my first music purchase and it was on cassette. My second was Exit stage left on vinyl used from a friend who had just purchased a boom box and was converting to tape. I ended up getting both of Ozzy's solo on vinyl not too long after from the same friend. That actually started my "collection".

By the time I started making my own money, I already had a music collection going...so I have no idea what the 1st album that I actually purchased was.
The 1st album I owned; however, was Bloodgood - Rock In A Hard Place......and I still love it!

First album I ever owned personally... the Super Mario 64 soundtrack. First album by an actual band I ever bought... Relient K's self-titled debut. The SM64 OST still gets listened to, however.

First import I ever bought was probably X Japan's Blue Blood album. I listened to it for like a year straight as a burned CD made from downloaded MP3s, then bought the original and played it like hell all over again.
