Subject: Do You Remember the first LP You Bought?
From: GUEST,Kathy
Date: 06 Dec 14 - 10:24 PM

Think back, back, back all those many years ago when we had 45's & LPs and record players. Do you remember the first LP you ever bought?
(Not bought by your parents or older brother or sister but YOU)

Well I do actually remember the first LP I bought with my own little money. I was only 9 or 10 years old. It was by Bobby Vee and it was called "Rubber Ball" I had a little crush on Bobby Vee because I thought he was so cute. I really liked the song "Rubber Ball" (also title of the LP) which was a big hit for him and I liked all the songs on the LP.

I don't remember my first LP, but the first record I bought was a single for my 12th birthday in 1964.

It was Little Pattie's double A-side He's My Blonde Headed, Stompie Wompie, Real Gone Surfer Boy yeh yeh yeh yeh / Stomping at Maroubra - one of Sydney's iconic surfing beaches

today I dunno why as I never liked the sun & beach & could barely swim

Think back, back, back all those many years ago when we had 45's & LPs and record players.

Back, back? You been in a record store recently? Take Piccadilly Records in Manchester (UK), which is now mostly vinyl. Even in the mainstream bands are releasing their album on vinyl as well as CD these days. Our records of the year are Love Letters by Metronomy and LP1 by FKA Twiggs - naturally we have both the CD and the vinyl versions for our in-car & domestic pleasure. The covers are nicer on vinyl too! The new David Bowie single comes in a nice 10" edition with unique extras...

Anyhoo, my first LP was Gorilla by the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. I got it with a token for Xmas 67 when I was 6. Still a great favourite, though sadly my original is long gone...

A cheap label (Ace of Clubs I think) issue of Buddy Holly's Decca recordings in Nashville. It was called That'll Be The Day and contained the original solo version of that song recorded before the Crickets remade it and credited to Alison/Holly as the writers - not Holly/Alison/Petty as in the crickets recording. It would 1964 or 65 when I bought it.

I can't remember exactly.
LPs were expensive, and my pocket money for a long time was only 20 pence per week..
I had to wait for birthdays and xmas, when my parents did lovingly overindulge me,
even though they were low wage earners..
So I got most LPs on the wish list I eagerly presented to them.

I reckon the first LP I bought myself, would have been on a cheap budget lable.

Quite possibly Decca's "The World of David Bowie" compilation.
That dodgy one with the Ziggy Stardust era cover photo,
concealing cash-in contents from his mid 60s Anthony Newley soundalike phase.
Or, that mono for stereo processed MFP The Move "Fire Brigade" LP
with a really excellent 'best of' track list.

But I definitely do remember the first 7" singles I saved up for and bought myself.

That was a serious moment of transition from mere kid to real teenager.. circa 1972...

Lindisfarne - "Lady Eleanor" [the re-release] and "Son of my Father" - Chicory Tip.

That combination of 7 inchers indicating my lifelong affinity for droning folkie neo-psychedelia
and insistent analog synth riffs & grooves...

Big Al. "lightning hopkins one side/sonny and brownie".

That was Lightin' Sonny and Brownie, and it was released in Britain on the Society Label. SOC 1009 in fact. It was recorded in 1960 at some coffee house or other in Los Angeles, and various other bits of that evening came out on various labels. The whole shebang was, I think, eventually re-issued on a Capitol double CD.

Whatever. I thought it was absolutely bloody marvellous and best of all it only cost ten bob.

Here's the tracklist.

Introduction. Lightnin' Hopkins.
Big Car Blues.Lightnin' Hopkins
Coffee House Blues. Lightnin' Hopkins
Stool Pigeon Blues. Lightnin' Hopkins, vcl, gtr
Ball of Twine. Lightnin' Hopkins.
Blues for Gamblers. Lightnin' Hopkins/Brownie McGhee/Sonny TerryBig Joe Williams
Walk On. Brownie McGhee/Sonny Terry
Blues from the Lowlands. Brownie McGhee/Sonny Terry
Down by the Riverside. Brownie McGhee/Sonny Terry
Blowin' the Fuses. Brownie McGhee/Sonny Terry
Right on that Shore. Brownie McGhee/Sonny Terry/Lightnin' Hopkins/Big Joe Williams

Yep, that's Big Joe Williams on Blues For Gamblers and Right on that Shore. He wasn't credited on the LP, but he did in fact do his own set that night.

The first few records I bought included Pete Seeger's "We Shall Overcome" album, a Folkways Woody Guthrie album, a Clancy Brothers album, and (I thought I should learn about jazz from the bottom up) a Dukes of Dixieland record... with Josh White, the Mitchell Trio and Judy Henske albums coming soon thereafter, clearly showing the influence of the Hootenanny TV show ,

The first LP I owned was the BBC 'Folk on Friday' compilation, but that was a Christmas present. The first LP I bought was Martin Carthy's eponymous first album. This was especially memorable as I paid for it with the proceeds from my first ever paid gig, a school concert where but for a double-booking snafu I would have been supporting Martin (although some way down the bill!). I still have the cutting from the local newspaper which describes me as 'standing in' for him - an exaggeration which I will never be able to live up to.

My first LP purchase was an Andy Williams compilation, "The Best of..." or something like that. (No, just checked and it was the Cadence LP "Andy Williams" from 1958, though I bought it in 1960 or '61.) I bought it before I expanded my LP collection to include "Moon River" and "Warm and Willing".

I saw the ISB do some of the songs off Wee Tam at Nottingham Albert Hall just before the album came out.

my chief memory was the rather informal presentation. one of the band members was giving lengthy instruction to Licorice the bass guitarist/girlfriend, before the start of every song.

the guy next to me said - oh shit, i think its her first lesson!

the commissionaire of the Albert Hall - he started the concert running down the aisles shouting 'no smoking there!' however everybody on the stage and in the audience were off their faces, - sort of stared hard back at him going , yeh sure! fantastic ....man!

The first LP I bought ws The Sound Of Music as a preent for my Mother. But for myself it was a 1964 album 'Presenting the Ian Cambell Folk Group' years later I met Ian and the group and followed them aound the Birmingham scene. I was amazed to learn from Ian that the album of 22 songs was recorded in one da as they could only afford one day in the studio, and even more surprised to learn that Ian didn't own an original couple of the LP, so I gave him mine. Maybe wrongly as it's now quite rare and I've not been able to find another copy!

Wish I did, but I don't. This thread led to a fun conversation with my 86 y.o. mom tonight. She bought lots of albums and music, and probably bought most of the folk, early rock and roll and motown music my sisters and I loved -because she loved it too. I have all of the albums from our family days, an eclectic mix, and we have no clue. Neither she or I remember my sisters or me buying albums before we left home for college - do remember 45's but my Dad was prone to cleaning binges and tossing stuff so all 78's and 45's were gone, regardless of who bought them, in the poorly remembered past.   If my first lp was truly not purchased by me until I was in college, I'm guessing it was something along the lines of CSN&Y.

Memories are hard to separate when Momma was a folkie/jazz/rocker/show tunes person who spent meager money on music. What a blessing!

I can't remember, but I suspect it was a Bob Dylan record, because I do remember that in 1965 I had a tuner, amplifier, & speaker, but no turntable, and a friend of mine -- one of those "I can get it for you wholesale" types (he is actually Jewish) -- was trying to get me to buy a turntable. I was dubious, but then I reflected that if I had a turntable I could listen to Bob Dylan anytime I wanted, so I consented, on condition that he wired it up to play mono (I thought stereo was a silly fad, and continued to buy mono records as long as they were available). So he did that, and I must have bought some Dylan, tho he lost me not long after that, and I moved over to Ewan MacColl.

Think it must have been the Paul Simon Songbook - 1966, last year at university - it ate up a lot of my grant! - I met him a few times in Bunjies but never thought to ask him to sign it or anything. It'd probably be worth a bob or two if I had.

I recall purchasing the LP "U.S. Male" by Elvis from Woolworths in 1975. Had a reel to reel tape before that. Man! we was poor.

Regards.
