The first record that chose myself was the 45 of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" by Elton John. And the album of the same name followed sometime later.

The first album I ever owned (that I didn't have to share with my brothers) was a gift from a friend of my mother's. I was getting my own turntable, and she bought me The Carpenters The Singles 1969-73. It was a gift, but I dug it. (Heck, I still dig it!)

Ahhhh, memmmm-ries....

The first albums I owned were from Metallica but I don't have those anymore nor do I still listen them. Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction is where the musical journey started for me. Still one of my favourite albums.

The first record I ever bought with my own money as a kid (I was probably 8 or 9 years old) was a silly song collection. It had songs like:

1. I fell in a barrell of ssssshhhhhhaving cream...
2. They're coming to take me away, ha ha...
3. Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour On the Bedpost Overnight

I can't really remember the rest. I guess those were the standout songs on the album. LOL

My first was the debut album by Kiss, which I bought in the late 70's. A few years later I bought Michael Jackson's Thriller. My late uncle Keith opened my ears with Ted Nugent's solo debut. When I really started getting into buying music, I kicked things off with Alice Cooper's Zipper Catches Skin, Black Sabbath's Greatest Hits, Ozzy Osbourne's Bark at the Moon and Diary of a Madman, and Blue Oyster Cult's The Revolution by Night. My wallet has never been the same since...

Cheers...Todd

I wish it was something cool, like Kiss, Purple or Zeppelin. Instead, my first album was Gerry Rafferty's City to City- the one with Baker Street.

Nothing to be ashamed of there, John. That's a classic tune. Gerry Rafferty was also in Stealer's Wheel, if memory serves, who had a hit with "Stuck in the Middle With You".

Wow, it's rare to see anyone mention Alice's Zipper Catches Skin album. I always loved the humor of the album, and feel it's gotten an undeserved bum rap over the years. Only one or two weak songs on it. Unfortunately, Alice's critics don't like the idea of him not taking himself as seriously as they think he should.

Alice's early 80's albums for Warner Bros. are among my favorites of his...Flush the FAshion, Special Forces, Zipper Catches Skin and even some of Dada. Great stuff!

And he did his stint with Spooky Tooth where he played with Luther Grosvenor who used the stage name Ariel Bender in a hugely successful stint with Mott the Hoople.

Well then, thank you! Was in Germany last month for three Blackmore shows and the F1 German Grand Prix. They had a cool cover band at the race that did that song and Ride Like the Wind by Chris Cross. Have never heard a band do Ride and haven't heard anybody do Baker Street in a long time (they had a sax guy too).They were from Stuttgart- Mad Chick of Soul- great band.

Nice one, Frank! Luther Grosvenor was also in the band Widowmaker in the 70's, with the great Bob Daisley (Ozzy, Rainbow, Gary Moore, Uriah Heep). The band released a couple albums, and a compilation was released on CD a number of years ago. Bringing this around to Glenn, Bob Daisley was the bassist in Gary Moore's band for a series of albums including 'Run for Cover', which also featured our boy Glenn Hughes on five songs: Run for Cover (bass only), Reach for the Sky, All Messed Up, Nothing to Lose and Out of My System.

Cheers...Todd

The 45 rpm, "A little bit me A little bit you" by the Monkees. Played it on a plastic battery operated record player called the Swingster, made by Kenner.

My first album and it is quite topical at the moment was Michael Jacksons Bad! I had it brought as a present when I was 6 years old. I used to put it on in the kitchen in the evenings while my Mum and Dad watched Emmerdale farm and I would dance and sing the night away to my hearts content! One of my favourite sayings is the one about Dabce like no one is watching - and that's what i did then and still do now! I'm by no means a die hard fan and my musical tastes have changed since then but I guess I have that album to thank for my love of music that grew with me as I grew up! Thanks for the music Michael! xxx

Reach for the Sky and All Messed up have always been 2 of my favs. that Glenn did. I really loved that record. It's been a while since I looked at the credits. I didn't remember G. on Run 4 cover (bass only). I definantly don't remember him on nothing to loose and out of my system. I'm going back to listen to those songs today. I can't understand if Gary hid him in the mix on those songs, but let him sing his ass of on the other 2. I'm remembering the Coverdale fiasco on "Sailing Ships". I couldn't hear G.'s voice on that song if my life depended upon it. Nothing like Pat Travers' "Stevie" , which is not only still one of my favorite PT songs, but also one of the best background vocals that i can think of Glenn singing.
peace,

And the first Widowmaker album is one I still listen too constantly. Steve Ellis on vocals was wonderful, but, as you mentione Bob Daisley (a true rock suoerstar ), I also remember that Huw Llloyd-Langton played guitar along with Luther. Huw was in and out of Hawkwind for about thirty-five years. Was a shame Dee Snider went out and did his "Widowmaker" as a heavy metal band, thus confusing many.

PurpleMusic, those are all lead vocals I'm referring to. Glenn wasn't buried in the mix at all.

Now, if only he'd sung the great "Empty Rooms"!

Still one of the best album covers of all time - and a great album too!

If memory doesn't fail me (has it ever...? ) my first 7'' was Carrie by Europe , my first 12'' Build by The Housemartins - which I still have - and my first LP London 0 Hull 4 also by The Housemartins which I also still have.

I have no idea what happened to my copy of the Europe single - we used to swap singles from time to time among us three brothers and at school too, so it must have changed hands back then. I do have the Final Countdown album on vinyl though, including said track, of course.

"High Voltage" - AC/DC and "One more from the road" - Lynyrd Skynyrd. Of course , I had some Purple on cassettes, like "Burn", "In rock" and others. But those were the first 2 vinyls, back in 1983. Both records are still among my alltime favorites, by the way.
