  • What Were the First Three Albums You Ever Bought?

    Led Zepellin 2
    Jethro Tull Benefit
    Black Sabbath Paranoid

    Wore them out on my parent's crappy mono turntable. But it was all I had.

    I don't remember the exact first 3 LPs, but Fleetwood Mac Rumors was definitely one of the firsts. The sound was phenomenal, very dynamic, and bettered subsequent LPs I purchased. I still have the LP, and now that I know how to read the deadwax, it turns out to be Robert Ludwig mastered pressing. Woohoo!
    Kronos Sparta -> Trinity Phono -> Trinity Pre -> CH Precision A1 -> Magico S7s

          I remember the Iron Butterfly song when it came out. I was in HS doing an advanced summer course at the Manlius School and that's all kids were playing. Then it was the Zager and Evans tune! Well maybe with Steppenwolf thrown in their somewhere.

              I tracked down a copy of that Zager and Evans record several years ago- "In the Year 2525," right? Sounded horrible. I didn't bother trying to find a better pressing. Steppenwolf was awesome back in the day. Saw them in, I don't know, 1970? That one greatest hits record, Gold, was a Steve Hoffman recommendation and it sounds pretty good. They were on ABC Dunhill, if memory serves, and the stuff on that label was not consistent, sound quality wise.

                Not surprised. But sounded pretty good in the HS cafeteria jukebox!

                Don't have an original of Steppenwolf but Chad's reissue was pretty good sounding. In fact, I was surprised how good given its vintage.

                    After years of buying 45s, the first two LPs I spent my own money on were Super Session and Bach Organ Favorites played by E Power Biggs, both in 1968.
