First single and album you bought?
Album – Blur, The Great Escape.
Single – never ever bought a single in my life, seemed like a total waste of cash and made no financial sense.
Havent bought myself a CD or any music for the best part of 5 years – I only own 10 or so, I get the odd one for xmas or birthdays but really I usually cant stand 70% of tracks on a CD (maybe a good reason to buy singles!?!).Posted 8 years agouplinkMember
Singles [when I was a lad] made perfect financial sense
pretty much like the downloads now, you don’t end up paying for padding & tracks you don’t want – besides I never had anywhere near enough cash to buy an album & nor did my matesPosted 8 years ago
I seem to recall a single cost 45p [9/-] which was pretty much all my pocket money for 1 weekwee-alSubscriber
A- Apetite for Destruction Gnr
s- Da Luniz- I Got 5 On It Or Dre- Nothin But A G Thang (cant remember which was first)
I remember hearing that Beddingfield woman on the radio one day when i was in my car. She was asked this Question to wit her answer, “Stevie Wonder, Music of my Mind”. I shouted ” you lying arsehole” so loud i nearly crashed. Every body knows early teenage girls buy Now or some nonsense. Anybody here still listen to their first albums for anything other than to reminisce?Posted 8 years agoChaseMember

Either…Bad Manners – Can Can, Pigbag – Papas Got A Brand New Pigbag or DaDaDa by Trio.
The first album I owned was Kings Of The Wild Frontier by Adam And The Ants but the first album I spent my own cash on was the followup, Prince Charming.rowleyMember
first Single Madness – Baggy Trousers after listening to it on radio luxemburg whilst on a family holiday to france. their videos were always an event on TOTP and a talking point at school the next day. AND now they are playing in m y hometown of Romsey this summer!!!
(wanted to buy games without frontiers by Peter Gabriel before that but my pocket money wouldn’t stretch to it)
