          Mine was an album, Electric Warrior T Rex also in 1971, and my love of all things glam rock was born  :D

    You'll laugh when I tell you mine.. The first I bought with my own money was "leave it with me" by Ted Glen, a character in Postman Pat, well I was about 5 at the time.

    Slightly less embarassing, I bought "Happy Talk" by Captain Sensible, used to love the video to that when I was 6.

    Mine was The Foo Fighters Greatest Hits  :D 

    I never had a record player the first time around and only got one about 3 years ago!

    Vinyl made a bit of a comeback a few years back as well.

    I’m ashamed to say I’ve never bought a physical album for myself, only digital ones and I tend to just buy the one song I want rather than the whole album

    I remember it well and it was Culture Club Karma Chameleon in 1983. I was with my late nan at the time and she gave me pocket money to buy it.

    Yeah in about 3 and half weeks it'll be 30 years since Freddie Mercury died of AIDS.

    I'm not sure the sad cause of his death is relevant? It was a great shame to lose such a great talent.

    Blimey and some people call ME picky! He was a great talent though yes.

         I am well aware of the anniversary of the late great Freddie, it doesn't matter what caused his death I just know it was a very sad day, but he will live on for many years to come. My 7 year old granddaughter knows the words to We Will Rock You and I intend to teach her a lot more  :)  but she doesn't understand Marc Bolan  :D

    Yeah try www.xyzlyrics.co.uk for more Queen lyrics.

    Also if she's got a console such as Xbox or Switch, there was a Queen Karaoke game that came out around last November that's got most of the good stuff.

    Talking about records, have just seen the news that Gerry Marsden MBE has passed away very sad, with his group the Pacemakers they were the first group ever to have their first 3 singles go to #1 in 1963.
    He worked tirelessly for many years in his support of the Hillsborough families and their search for just for the 96.
    R.I.P Gerry "You'll never walk alone"

    My first LP was this, a re-mastered version of music originally recorded in 1967, which came out in 1973:
    Perhaps some of you might enjoy this.....originally recorded before Sandy Denny joined Fairport Convention, & with the Strawbs, especially Dave Cousins vocals, sheer joy IMHO.

  • vikingqueenvikingqueen Member Posts: 215 Pioneering
        well said @woodbine, you haven't lived until you hear the Liverpool fans sing You'll never walk alone at their football matches, they'll just have to sing a little louder now  :(

    Surprisingly can't actually remember what my first purchased record was :D Given I collect CDs it's a mystery that I've forgotten.

    Me and the partner received a vinyl player for Christmas, so will probably start collecting those too. Only have 2 so far
