    ....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.

    The first I ever received was a present from my sister; Ernie by Benny Hill. :tongue::blush:xx(

    The first I ever bought was Morning Has Broken by Cat Stevens.
  11. 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(

    Emerson Lake and Palmer's first album. That piece of vinyl cost me 98p in 1972.
    I've still got it.
    I've never bought a single.

    Not all that close
    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.
