Think We Did This Before But What The Hell ...


Evans Electric

Who remembers the first record they ever bought  , this was mine .   Yeah yeah I know ...a long time ago ...but few in the UK had heard this style before  .      This was an older blues number by Junior Parker  given the Elvis treatment .

I knew someone would say that Apprentii ;)   , but before this stuff there was nothing that interested teenagers ( Who had just been invented at that time)  None of your Simon Cowell discoveries back then you know ...lip synching to their own doctored tracks with all the flat notes electronically sharpened & tweeked .

Waterloo  by ABBA    I'd hazzard a guess at  :innocent;)

 

Probably the only Eurovision Song still  played on radio.

I really don't remember, but Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers was an early purchase. I do remember dad coming home with a record player, and the Jungle Book songs album when I was less than 10years old.

Not sure if it was the first.. but I do remember buying...

The reason being, I can always remember my mate from school coming round to listen to it on my mom and dads Stereo record player..

( I only had a little portable Mono turntable that closed up with a carry handle on the side!! )

 

But back in that era my mom went and worked an evening "twilight" shift at one of the local BSR factories where they assembled record turntables...

(so she got staff discount to buy a record player for home!!!)

In their heyday BSR manufacture one quarter of all record turntables sold!

 

 

 

 

I got a gut feeling that my first record may have been one of the many Top-Of-Top-Pops compilation records

(with your favorite session musician sound-alikes-ish)

Can't remember which...

But there were definitely some of them in our house

Maybe its was just the women on the sleeves I liked....  not the tunes!!!!!

Certainly don't remember the first single, first album was Aladdin Sane (Bowie), i still love it and play it often.

 

What about first concerts?

 

Mine is great, and no one I have ever met has been to see them although millions around the world will have done so............

 

Frankie Valli at Southampton Gaumont around 1972/3, BEAT THAT

First record was a 7" single Little Red Rooster by The Stones. First album was Inflammable Material by Stiff Little Fingers (which was not a reference to PVC consumer units) I still have the SLF album but all my singles got lost in transit except for one, Revolt into Style by Bill Nelsons Red noise on blue vinyl.

 

By the way, I'm not that old, the Stones single I bought n the late 70's long after it was originally released
