Be honest now. Laughing

I don't think I have great taste in music now and I definitely don't think I did when I was a kid. The first LP I bought with my own money after walking to the local record store was Air Supply. I was young and for some reason thought Lost In Love was an awesome song.

My first CD was a much better choice in U2's Joshua Tree. I knew it would sound absolutely amazing on the new format. And it did.

You can't go wrong with Petty.

The first LP I can remember begging my parents to buy me was the soundtrack to "Bedknobs and Broomsticks" at a neighbor's yard sale. I didn't actually see the movie until much later, but the commercial with its mix of real people and cartoon animals fascinated my 5-yr-old brain. Since it was a 1970's Disney release, it didn't have actual recordings from the film, it had studio artists The Mike Samms Singers reproducing them. Angela Landsbury is nowhere to be heard. Turns out the Singers' soundtrack is much better than the real one released recently by Disney. Mike Samms had spoiled me for when I finally saw the film. I'm dying for a CD/MP3 release of that old album.

First album I bought myself was ELO's "Out of the Blue" on 8-track. I think.

First CD was the soundtrack to the James Bond movie "The Living Daylights" from a sale bin. I loved A-Ha's 007 movie theme song. First full-price CD was Kim Wilde's "Close". Still a huge Kim fan. I would lose a finger or toe to get a CD of her "Teases & Dares" album.

Pretty sure it was The Monkees ... or Raffi.

Now. if we're talking 'first cd you bought with your own money," it'd probably be that live album Ac/Dc put out in the early nineties. I think it was pretty much the same show as the Live at Donnington dvd (which, I swear to all that is holy, it seems like everybody on Earth owns a copy of. Hell, somehow I ended up with two).

Either that or the Last Action Hero soundtrack.

In fact, I'm pretty sure it was the latter, now that I really think about it. "Big Gun" was kind of my grand introduction to Ac/Dc, in the first place. Still fucking love that riff. Shit, it's probably a good bit of the reason I tend to bend the strings so wantonly when I play the guitar. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I'm always trying to get back to, like, even a tenth of the bombast of that riff.

I might just have all of the Live at Donnington DVD's. Many bands had great concerts there. AC/DC will endure forever.

I haven't thought about Starlog in a long time. I grew up with it and Fangoria. I remember reading about Alien in it. Actually I read about Alien in both. Thery're not around anymore are they?
