My first album was Madness One step beyond played on a ferguson record player round about christmas 1979. It was played to death and it was that point in time that you knew music would stay with you.

It still sounds great in 2012 on a proper hifi a gem of an album fresh as ever.

Think my first album was Top of the Pops vol 38. I was four, I played it to death, wore it thin. The record player was a Fidelity something or other: plastic everything with a ceramic cart and flip-over stylus. The record is in the attic, along with my other records from way back then, such as Round the World with Sooty, Dougal and the Blue Cat, Thunderbirds / Captain Scarlet, Rupert Bear and the Firebird, Larry the Lamb, and a couple of bedtime stories LPs read by Wendy Craig. Yes I'm that old.

Played on my dad's record / radio / cassette player all in one system (no idea what make).

Still one of the greatest debut albums, and still sounds fab.

"Burn" by Deep Purple in 1974 on a Cosmo p.u. with build in amp and speakers. I don't have it anymore, as i have sold it many years ago, because my musictaste has changed a lot!

The first album I bought out of my own money was Pink Floyd “Dark Side Of The Moon” played on my father’s Grundig music centre thingy.

I had God knows how many 45’s beforehand paid for out of my pocket money but that was the first album I actually bought when I entered the world of work in 1976. No idea how it sounds now as my last vinyl set-up was back in 1984.

Can't be sure but I think it was

Through the Past Darkly, The Rolling Stones, which I still have but is severely warped and it was played on a HMV Stereogram , could also be Stupidity, Dr Feelgood.

My first cassette was Frampton comes Alive which I recently bought on CD a guilty pleasure. This would have been played on a Waltham personal cassette recorder.

My first CD I think was The Joshua Tree, U2 , first cd player was a midi sized Yamaha something 7.

Rainbow On Stage. I still love that album and Catch The Rainbow is still one of my all time favourite tracks. It also started me off craving live music and my journey into the dark side. I now have 1,400 live Dio cds and 600 of Led Zeppelin. I gave away 160 Stevie Ray Vaughan recordings and about 80 Metallica. BUt most importantly, I have a very understanding wife.
