    with an 8-track player no less.
    Father must have handed down the shag-mobile. :D

    I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure the first album I bought was Howard Jones Dream Into Action, like, the week it was released.

    Huh. I always thought that last line was "if you'll beam up, baby." That song just became so much less excellent to me.

    It was one of these two for sure, but not sure which one:
    Steppenwolf - LIVE (April 1970)
    Deep Purple - Made In Japan (April 1973)

    But, I believe I bought both of them in 1975 when I was 11 years old.:)

    Yep. Was in my name. I even paid insurance on it.
    By the time I got my license, I had bought a chevy truck, Ford Galaxie 500, and a Chrsysler Cordoba.

    He told me were the van was at ( a coworker was selling it).
    Paid $500.00.
    Because I could not drive it (no license ) I had an uncle drive it home for me.

    I don't remember the first LP I bought. First single was 'The Number of the Beast' by Iron Maiden, [picture sleeve & red vinyl no less] along with a surrogate copy of 'Big A, Little A' by CRASS... In my day you saved up & bought blank tapes & spent your Sunday evenings glued to the Radio with your fingers on Pause & Record hoping the tune you liked got played in the first place & that the DJ didn't talk over it too much :D
    I don't think I got my own Stereo until I was 13. Seems ridiculous now.

    This was the first album I bought with my own cash. The second album I ever bought was "Hell Awaits". I got them on cassette and listened to them on a walkman. The impact of listening to that opening riff on earphones without any distractions was absolutely immense. More so than hearing other songs of Slayer's on the college radio station I was listening to at the time or by trading tapes with a friend of mine.

    For all the mismatched order I listened to Slayer up to the "Seasons in the Abyss" album, I have to say "Show No Mercy" is my favorite Slayer Album of all time. It's faster than the South/Abyss albums, as well as catchier/more listenable than the Reign/Awaits albums. The later stuff either flops or has poorer production.(To my ears) Which is pretty much everything post-Divine Intervention with a couple of exceptions for certain songs.
