The first album I ever bought was ...And Justice For All on CD when I was 11/12 in a local music shop that closed down around 2009 - it still ranks as one of my all-time favourite.

Cassette has always been my favorite. I never stopped buying them, even when CDs dominated. I of course buy CDs and vinyl, as both are technically superior to cassette, but I will always love them.

Part of it is nostalgia, since that's what I was buying when first getting into music. But I also always loved the sound and feel of them. In 7th grade, I had a cassette in the inside pocket of my denim jacket at all times. If I had a newly acquired tape, it would be that one. If not, it'd be one of my faves. No one saw it, but I just liked having them there and listening to the sound they made when I moved around.

I liked making mix tapes. Too bad I don't have many of them left. I used to give them away after awhile.

I'd love to see what was on my "BEST SONGS EVER!!" tapes from the 90's.

First cassette:
Rock 'N' Roll Hall Of Fame - Volume XVIII
I was 7 years old. We were at a department store and I was allowed to buy whatever I wanted with a certain small amount of money. Went through a bin of cheap cassettes for sale and got this one. I LOVED IT!
We were at our summer cabin on a summer vacation and I played this over and over again in our car. Hold On I'm Coming, Love Potion Number 9 and Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying are still some of my all time favorite songs.

Ok, then the first CD Very Happy
DANCE DELUXE
I was 12 years old. We were at some store, getting my first CD player and I was able to get one cheap enough CD with me and that's what I chose. headbanger

Don't be afraid though. The second CD I bought was Manowar's The Triumph of Steel.

Nope. Cassette and LP only.

Yup. Bit they all sound pretty good and the prices have come way down. That's such a great album.

Yeah I was the same way. I kept buying cassettes even when CD’s we’re taking over. I didn’t even have a cd or CD player til the mid 90’s.

I hate cassette tapes. I had a ton of em too. F’em. A crap format that I don’t miss one bit. I’d be more nostalgic for Edison wax cylinders playing ‘Brother Can You Spare a Dime”.

My first cassette tape was my own recording of our local rock & metal radio station. As I've stated in other past threads, I still have this tape. It was my first exposure to the scene.

First "purchased" tape was the soundtrack to St Elmo's fire. I still play that album to this day.

First vinyl was Ozzy Osbourne's Diary of a Madman.

First CD was World Party's Goodbye Jumbo. For a non-metal disc it's quite good.

Not sure what my first rock/metal CD was. Van Halen's FUCK, maybe?

Oddly enough, I didn't own a car with a CD player until 2009, so I had to keep buying and using used cassettes. It was either that or shitty FM Rock radio.

It was around the turn of the century when I stumbled across a small car stereo installation place that was blowing out brand new tapes for cheap. I had initially gone there looking for an estimate on putting a system in my car and saw the wall of tapes on clearance. I grabbed a ton of stuff (some I still have unopened) figuring it was gonna be at least five more years before I had a CD player in the car. I pretty much bought the whole Hard Rock and Metal section out for under $50. Most stuff was a dollar or less. I still have some unopened Queensryche, Dio, Dokken, and Ozzy from that day.

My first cassette was Ratt's Invasion of your Privacy. I bought it off some kid from High school with no case for the pricely sum of 5 dollars.

Pretty sure my first cd was Master of Puppets.

I never really got into vinyl. I bought a few a couple of years ago, including Kyuss's Sky Valley, Metal Massacre 9, and Dr.Know's Wreckage in Flesh all about the same time. I stopped though, because while the format is awesome, I would never get a record player. If it's something I love, I might buy it though. I love my copies of Creeping Death, and Nuclear Assault's The Plague for that very reason....

The small vinyl collection I had ( around 25 albums or so) I sold off in 1993 or so at a family yard sale. The old stereo I had (you know the ones with the speakers the size of a refrigerator but have about 5 watts each and were more for show) finally crapped out and I wasn't spending the money to buy another one. LP's were kinda on the way out anyway (as well as tapes, too) and CD's were becoming the dominant medium.

My best friend and I met in 1990 and he had about 500 or so cassettes (I owned probably about 200) and he had made the decision to transfer everything over to CD. So, of course, he starts selling off tapes to get the money up for discs. I bought some from him. But, I wasn't really interested in the vinyl. He also had maybe a hundred or so albums left over from when he transferred everything over to cassette years earlier. Unfortunately, his taste in music has never been the same. He went from Hard Rock and Metal into Pop and Radio Rock and to this day has never gone back. No biggie, to each their own; but, I honestly can't imagine a day where I don't want to hear Priest, Maiden, or Saxon.

So, this morning I counted up my vinyl - I have 325 total records; probably about 250 or so different titles as I own a lot of 2 and 3 LP sets and box sets. I have grown to like the idea/concept of vinyl more than I ever have in the past. I am just not in love with the price; especially that of a single record versus a 2 or 3 record set. I don't really fault the retailers, I fault the manufacturers and wholesalers as I have a friend who owns a local record shop (and has for over 30 years) and I have a good idea of what the retailers pay and then have to ask the public for.

I may be halting the vinyl buying for the foreseeable future as I just don't see paying $20-25 plus tax and shipping for a single LP when I can buy a 2-3 LP set for a few bucks more than that. Or 2-3 CD's for that amount of money. Also, there would be a lot of "triple dipping" or more on certain titles. Think about how many times we all have bought the same titles of Ozzy, Metallica, Dio, Or Motorhead through the years on re release, anniversaries, bonus disc editions, etc. The vinyl resurgence has been here the last 15 years or so, I feel as though the prices should have come down more by now. I shouldn't walk in to a Newbury Comics and see them have to ask thirty bucks for Dr. Feelgood.

Sorry for long post. Just a Sunday morning with some tunes and a mug of black coffee. Smile

First L.P "Pyromania". It was the only one I had forever, until I started my initiation into vinyl last year. Received Pyromania from my parents for Christmas of '83.

First cassette: It was either "Shout at the Devil" or "Bark at the Moon". My father joined Columbia House and asked if I wanted one, maybe it was two? I might have gotten them at the same time? I think I got both by the spring or summer of '84. Otherwise, I was sitting in my room by my dual cassette deck, waiting for a song to be played on the radio. Ah...the good old days

First C.D came at Christmas in 1988. I received my Sanyo system and tall speakers, which came with tuner, record player, equalizer, and dual cassette deck thingy. Also received "Pyromania", "Hysteria", "Kill 'em All", "Ride The Lightning", "Master of Puppets", "...And Justice For All" and "Reign In Blood" on that same day. I still laugh, when I think about either my mother or my father perusing the metal aisle at N.R.M., Musicland or the local store Appletree Records. They all came in those classic long card board boxes, which though cool, was sort of stupid when one thinks about it. Quite possibly my favorite Christmas
