  1. Gadgeteer Comment Policy - Please read before commenting
  2. Metallica – And Justice for All. First CD I bought, loved it. Went out and bought it on vinyl in college.

  3. I actually think the first record I bought was Mercy Mercy Mercy by Cannonball Adderley. First favorite song was Mmmbop 🙂

  4. 1st record was probably “we are the world” when it was at its peak… either that or a duran duran album.

  5. Bobby Vee’s Golden Greats, a 1962 release which I didn’t get until 1965 when at last my family got a hi-fi stereo. I still play that LP.

  6. The first record I ever bought was a 45 single, Go Away Little Girl by The Osmond Brothers. That was a long time ago 😆

  7. The first record I bought was “Physical” by Olivia Newton John. My first cassette was Chuck Mangione’s “Fun and Games” and my first CD was “Electric Youth” by Debbie Gibson.

    I have eclectic tastes in music.

  8. Jocelyn Deguise

    This will betray my age… and geekiness:

    Meco’s “Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk”.

    (yeah: I know, right ?)
