Shit, I bought my first CD player at the end of 1983, and Crazy Eddie's was clearing them out, thinking they had a dud on their hands. They even threw in 5 CDs...

Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run
Prince - Purple Rain
Some god-awful Who "Best-of", including the single version of "Won't Get Fooled Again"
Bryan Adams - Cuts Like A Knife
Rolling Stones - Out Of Our Heads

Yep, Bryan Adams.

Bryan. Fucking. Adams.

Now I'm wondering if I can reconstruct the 13 albums that I got the first time I joined Columbia House.

13? You obviously left a couple of those little boxes unfilled.

Oh, we've moved on to CDs?  My first CD purchase was REM's Dead Letter Office - the extended version that included Chronic Town.

Also, Apex... I don't think you know what "winning" means.

And Columbia House... oy, what a scam.  Of course, that didn't stop me from signing up to get my x free CDs.

Columbia House was awesome because, at one point, they'd let you buy their deeply discounted box sets and count them towards your membership fulfillment requirements.

I got a Coltrane box set for like 20 bucks that way.

Columbia House was also awesome because if you were under 18 and defaulted on the eventual monthly membership, they couldn't legally go after you.  Or so I was told.

My first CD was Houses of the Holy which I bought second-hand in 1992.

It means I had better music taste from the get-go than any Bruce-chugging cracker in this thread. And I stand by it until Stew gets here and raves about the Mozart concert he took in.

BMG always had cheaper box sets and required less for the obligation.

No, I think in 1977 it was 12 plus one offered half-price toward what you had to buy.

I once bought "The Best of Gary Numan", only to get it home and discover that it didn't have "Cars" or "Are Friends Electric?".  It should have been called "The Rest of Gary Numan".

Oh, and the first concert was the Police at the Rosemont Horizon. Can't remember whether Joan Jett or the Go-Go's opened that one. The entire town should be razed on general principles.

First concert with a head full of mushrooms, on the other hand, was Corky Siegel at the Woodstock Opera House. Fantastic.

Hmmm.  Like most people who were 7 in 1983, my first lp was Thriller.

First cassette I bought with my own money was R.E.M.'s Document.

First CD was the Clash On Broadway box set.
