First Aural?

El-Jaro El-Jaro
I'm such an audiophile. I have a LOT of music on my comp and on disks. I still have my first cd though, The Crow soundtrack.

I can't remember my first cassette for sure; it's either The Spin Doctor's "Pocket full of Kryptonite" or Counting Crows' "August and Everything after". I also remember dancing around to a laserdisc that was all Duran Duran videos from their self-titled release in the early 80's.

How far back do you remember?

I remember my first record..it was "The Teddy Bear Picnic" and I was about 4 LOL

Then my first cassette was "Jem"....she was truly outrageous you know...truly truly TRULY outrageous.

After that it was a Debbie Gibson tape or maybe Tiffany.

My first CD was Hootie and the Blowfish and Dave Mathews Band..I got them both at the same time..I remember back then the only thing we had in the house that played cds was the computer so I used to hang out in the den and listen to them.

I had kids' records growing up like Sesame Street and Snoopy vs The Red Baron. I think Thriller was my first cassette tape. I have distinct memories of being 10 years old and listening to it on my Sony Walkman at all hours.

My first record ... I was so proud ... was a Smurfs song album. I will never forget a raspy-voiced Smurf version of Louie Armstrong singing 'When the Smurfs Come Marching In'.

My first CD was 'The Eurythmics Greatest Hits', given on my 17th birthday by one of my gay guy friends. I still have it - although my ex-husband lost the liner notes (he was always doing shit like that).

My first CD was some Scream album from the 90s. It was supposed to be something completely different, but the place I ordered from screwed it up. To this day, I have not listened to it in full.

JR you have some good taste. I have those cassettes on CD.

I remember my first 4 CD's in order...

Hanson-debut album

My first cassette I think was the GoGo's either that or A Barbie version of a bunch of oldies songs including ABC and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

Oh man. I loved Raffi! I still watch him. >.> I have the dvd's for my kids! I feel old, especially when I'm the only one singing along with him and my kids are both staring at me like I am nuts. hahaha

Though my first ever record type thing was an old disney christmas record. I can remember listening to it over and over. lol

My first cd was an oldies mix that my dad got me. Since that's all we listened to. haha

I had an 8-track player too - my dad gave me a bunch of Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Allman Brothers, the Kinks and others I can't remember. I was probably 6 years old.

We had shared vinyl, as the only record player was one of those enormous wooden and upholstered console player. So, all the records were in the cabinets near that giant player. We had a ton of music though, from blues, metal, funk, a little disco, pop, audio books, scores. It was nice. I was never yelled at for playing records - so it wasn't like a kid-free zone.

Cassettes, hmmm - I had Guns and Roses, Metallica, Slayer, Expose, The Bangles, Joan Jett, The B-52s, George Michael, Th Go-Gos, Poison, Bon Jovi, and stuff like that, when I was about 9 or 10. Most I bought at Ames or Kmart in my little childhood hometown with my allowance money The only cassettes I kept were the ones from my teens, Misfits, Godflesh, Napalm Death, At The Gates, Danzig - all for nostalgia, really.

CDs...I think I did one of those Columbia House type club deals at like 14 years old and got a bunch all at once, including Madonna, Metallica, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Blue Oyster Cult, Def Leppard, Guns and Roses, and Black Sabbath.

I wish I had known how accessible music would eventually become, I would not have amassed such a CD collection over the years - like nearly a thousand! Especially the ones where I only like a few songs! I sold a lot of them a few years ago.

Gary didn't say it in his post, but he has many many CDs. I would guess 4,000+.
