    I would say I was probably nine or ten years old (remember I am older than probably most here). I really did not know what I was purchasing. I would probably bought Alvin and the Chipmunks. My older sister, who was quite punk rock (or what she thought), took me on my first trip to the local record shop. I had saved some money from birthdays, chores and such and walked out with my first two records. The single came later. I remember being amazed by the album jackets and the fact that the Ramones looked like all the guys my sister hung around with. LOL!

    Those records changed my life.

    I'm loving this thread.

    My first 7" was Adam Ant

    which i think is pretty cool. And my first LP was a compilation called Chart Explosion a K-Tel release. It did have tracks by Blondie, Madness, OMD and Roxy but it also had Leo Sayer and Cliff! Hey I was 8!

    I can still vividly remember thinking "Step Up To The Mic" was brill. Oh the innocence of youth. Thank god for the Smiths doing What Difference on TOTP a few years later.
