    What was your first CD (& I don't mean Crossdresser, BMF...:p)?

    Mine was Ozzy Osbourne/Tribute.

    It was a live tribute CD to Randy Rhoads...:)

    I think my first was:

    Public Enemy--It takes a nation of Millions to hold us back.

    Bought in 1988 or 1989, I guess.

    I just remember the cardboard packaging that the CD's used to come it. I would be really carefull opening the CD's so I could then hang the cardboard warpper on my walls like a poster. Then "recycling" became big and the record companies stopped using the cardboard packaging.

    "Discipline" by King Crimson. I also bought a Sony Discman sometime in the late 80s, and that was the first CD I bought.

    See, I had an actual CD player before I had a discman.

    I saved my own money and bought the CD player (a pioneer 6 disc CD player--the cartridge loading style) after Christmas. keep in mind this is impressive because I was 10 or 11 at the time.

    I didn't have a discman for a while. God, remember how much those things sucked? They would SKIP constantly. If you coughed near the discman it would skip. They sucked.

    My Discman didn't skip. It wasn't really a "Discman" back then, it was a D-50:


    It had a giant battery pack that it plugged into if you wanted to carry it around. It totally rocked. Oh, and I think I bought it in 1984.

    That thing is ridiculous. They weren't big on portability back then.

    Casual Fan Surprisingly nice

    "Five Man Acoustical Jam" by Tesla in 1990. I was slow to the party, apparently.

    Still have the CD player, a single disc rack component by JVC. 18 years old--wow.

    How time flies. :(

    I forgot to add that it was back in 1986...:)

    I forgot about the big cardboard boxes they used to come in. I must have had about 50 of those things collected before I decided to throw them out...:p

    I remember getting stationed in Okinawa, Japan in 1989 & going out to Gate 2 street by Kadina Air Base & going CD shopping. None of the CD's came with those cardboard cases except "Imports" from the US...:shock:

    I still have about 50 of my first ones here some where. I cut out the fronts and had them on my wall as a teenager. :)

    What are you talking about? It was barely bigger than a stack of 4 CDs. It was the only portable CD player at the time. Everything else was as big as a turntable.

    Mine, too. There was a big plastic battery holder it clipped onto, and a shoulder strap so you could wear the whole thing. Very geeky. Very cool.
