What was the first record you ever purchased with your own money? You must have liked it enough to plunk down your own hard-earned cash for it, and it was not a gift, but from your very own piggy bank?
For some God-knows-why reason, my first purchased record was an LP (mostly because I couldn't find the single). I had only a few dollars and one day when I was with my mom at the PX in McDill AFB in Tampa, flipping through the album rack, I made my decision...which I still remember very clearly today:
Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan - "Birds of a Feather" (1969) because I loved "Tennessee Bird Walk". http://www.discogs.com/Jack-Blanchard-Misty-Morgan-Birds-Of-A-Feather/release/2300064
I was 12 years old at the time. Secondary favorite on that LP "Humphrey the Camel". Silly songs, but fun. Don't know what ever happened to the album, sometime long before I moved to California, it was lost - or possibly my mom threw it out after hearing it for the 1000th time.
Do you know what happened to your first record? Do you still have it today?
