rafnagud9 Posted November 16, 2008 Share Posted November 16, 2008 K, well, I’ve looked through more than a few pages on the site and saw threads for fav albums, and various comments on great recordings, and so forth, but it’s possible this thread may duplicate some thoughts, so I’ll try to make it more specific… the idea is to recall and share the experience of buying your first album (or CD), as in with your own money (not a gift) and what it meant to you (that sort of thing). Hmm… this dates me, but I was ten years old in 1976 and living here in Houston. There was a place (still here) called The Post Oak Pharmacy. Back then it was one of the last of the old time joints where you could walk in to pick up your Rx or sit for a meal (talk about old school). In the back they had a box full of LPs and one day I walked in and for some reason was drawn to the back, to the box. One particular album cover caught my attention and I bought it (with my allowance). Took it home and was mesmerized (played it again & again & again on a piece-of-crap turntable, hey, I was ten). Must say that the material holds up remarkably well to this day. Just sharing. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
