Musical History

This photo on flickr asked people to share what was your first 45, cassette, or CD. I have been smiling since remembering mine…Rock ’83 from K-Tel. It was a gift, I think from my mom and dad, along with a ghetto blaster for my 10th birthday. And boy, did I ever think that Laura Branigan was cool.






Check out the track list:

Men At Work – Be Good Johnny
Adam Ant – Goody Two Shoes
Toni Basil – Mickey
Kenny Loggins With Steve Perry – Don’t Fight It
Rush – Subdivisions
Missing Persons – Walking In LA
Pat Benatar – Shadows Of The Night
Billy Idol – White Wedding
Stray Cats – Rock This Town
Dexy’s Midnight Runners & The Emerald Express – Come On Eileen
Human League – Don’t You Want Me
Duran Duran – Hungry LIke The Wolf
Ultravox – Reap The Wild Wind
Divinyls – Boys In Town
Bryan Adams – Cuts Like A Knife
Laura Branigan – Gloria

Do you remember what your first album was?

  1. I still own that record. It was in my Christmas stocking of 1983, I'm guessing! But my first record was a tape cassette copy of Eddie Grant's Electric Avenue.
    Don't you love how K-Tel always had one kind of minor un-hit on each of their records?

  3. Oh my–that's quite the Bryan Adams troll.

    I lurve K-Tel. I'm sure I still have some vinyl around…but my first album was Dolly Parton, “9 to 5 and Odd Jobs.” I bought it at Target, with my own money, when I was about 8. And then played it on the Fisher Price record player in our bedroom.

  4. I think mine was a Mama Cass tape that my grandparents got me to go along with my first ghetto blaster. I wanted Def Leppard, but I gather my grandparents didn't even know where to look for something like that. So they got me what they thought would be “young and hip”!
