Ok... the first CD I ever bought is STILL one of my best and is the centre piece of my collection.

Way back in 1993 when I was 12 or so, I saved up 3 weeks advertiser paper round money and splashed out 8.50 on the Tears For Fears 1985 multi-million selling epic 'Songs From The Big Chair' which features classic 80's hits like Shout, Everybody Wants To Rule The World and Head Over Heels.

I got it from a shop called Ians Records which has now been turned into a hair salon.

They were the first group I ever got into. In May 2005 I had the pleasure of seeing them live... it was a childhood dream come true.

I have all 7 of their albums, and they're all quality.... but the first one I bought.... the very, very first has still held the test of time and is sooooooooo special.

If the first album you bought was lame (Right Said Fred is a classic for people in my year).... expect me to laugh at you LOL laugh.gif

First CD I ever bought...hmm... I think it was R.E.M. - Automatic For The People, I think i'm gonna have to buy a new copy soon though as it has a small crack in it, but it still works fine... A classic album by one of the best bands ever to grace this world. If you don't have a copy... BUY ONE!

there's lots of stuff i used get given (like early 90s dance casettes lol) but i think my first purchase was either a Jimi Hendrix album or the prodigy's fat of the land in 1998 (when i was just a little mini mosher type tongue.gif )
