Well, this is an interesting situation for me. My father is a bluegrass musician, has been since well before I was born, so I was pretty much raised on my dad’s music. I wasn’t interested in most of the music during the 80’s and I never bought any tapes or anything.
The first tape I actually owned was a ‘New Kids on the Block’ tape that a friend of mine gave me as a joke on my 13th birthday. Needless to say, I quickly passed that on to my sister (hey, she was 11 at the time.. [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img] )
The first tape I actually bought was Nirvana, ‘Nevermind’, which I thought was cool as hell at the time. Way different that the glam crap that proceeded it. I don’t listen to it any more as Nirvana wore off pretty quickly after I discovered Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, etc.
As for my first CD (and rosa will be amused by this) it was Pearl Jam’s ‘VS’ which I got at the same time as I bought my first CD player (the department store I bought it at only carried the mainstream stuff, so no Dino and I had to have something to play on my new player.
