What was the first (music) record.....

Elmer Fudd

Miserable Old Bar Steward
....you ever bought with your own money ?
Just watched Ray Davies on BEEB 2 and it reminded me that apart from the records Pater 'n Mater and family bought me as a nipper, the first ever single I bought myself was "Lola" by The Kinks.
So, what was yours ?

Diana by Paul Anka on a 78 rpm plastic jobbie. Bought with first weeks milk round wages. Later poured boiling water over it and made a flower bowl. can't do that with Cds!

Also bought Because You're Mine by Mario Lanza as a treat for my Mum.

Now that was a real Blue Peter thing -scalding water and good old 78s... Brilliant labelling too!
'Glad All Over' by the Dave Clark 5 (Ahh - names with such invention). It was the beginning of my 'drums are good' period. xx(

I remember buying Rick Wakeman's White Rock at the first opportunity. Played it endlessly. A few short months later I bought my first single ... Pretty Vacant. Never listened to Rick much after that.
