Late sixties, still at school, living on pocket money, I used to buy sampler LPs released by various labels cheaply. It was a good way to get immersed in music as a poor schoolboy! These probably constitute my first five though its a long time ago. 🙂

Damned if I can clearly remember now, it was a long time ago! The first vinyl album I bought, was the soundtrack to A Fistful Of Dollars, the others were cassettes, possibly ELP Pictures At An Exhibition, Marvin, Welch and Farrar, ELP Tarkus…Posted 4 years ago
…and for the life of me I can’t remember any more, I’m not even sure if Tarkus was one of them, but I know I had it.
I mostly used to borrow albums from mates who were into music, and knew more than me, then I used to record them using my N2202 cassette recorder, holding the microphone in front of the record player speaker! Led Zeppelin 4 was an early one.
