AC/DC Back in Black and Motley Crue Dr Feelgood

I remember like it was yesterday cause the CD walkman that I got to play them on SUCKED!!!! It was WORSE than Michael Jackson!

Battery lasted 20min and it skipped if you walked with it BUT WE LIKED IT!

and the SQ on that was probably better than most of the lousy mp3's flying around today!

My first (actually second after I returned the first one for sucking so hard). One of the best at the time!

Had some weird INDEX search feature that no CD other than PAINKILLER seemed to use.

My first CD was Phil Collins' "Face Value" album (I believe that was Collins' first solo album if I'm not mistaken). I purchased it along with my first CD boombox in 1995 when I was 14. I thought CD's were the coolest things back then!

I had a Pioneer Compac Disc put in my demo, the dealer through a fit when he saw that cost on it was $1400.

I enjoyed it for a week, and then someone bought my demo because it had the CD player in it.

I worked in a record store as CD's started to be marketed in stores. We had a rack of Windham Hill CD's, but I hated that shit. I was given a promotional CD of the group Papa Do-Run Run and another CD of Glenn Miller's "In the Digital Mood". I can't remember the first disc I bought. I bought way too many back then. Maybe Phillip Glass' "Koyanisqatsi" or Lou Reed's "New Sensations".

Mine was Windows ME. Before that I only had floppys.

I had computer CDs much before Music ones.... Music was strictly Cassettes at that time.

Windows ME, the worst thing to happen to the PC until Vista showed itself.

In 1989 after buying my first CD player for $99 (By the way, it is still working in my garage), I bought AC/DC Back In Black, Foreigner (Juke Box Greatest Hits), and Hank Williams Jr/Man of Steel.

I bought a forth one but I cannot think of it at the moment. :scratch:

True dat. All these kids, carrying around their entire music collections in cheap plastic boxes filled with compressed tunes.

What are they gonna show their kids when they're parents? I thought my mom and dad's old 45s and LPs were too cool.

I bought LPs well into the late 80s. Nothing sounds as good, as rich, as deep as a new LP on a nice turntable. I've got a Robert Cray album somewhere and you'd swear he's playing in your house.

My family got its 1st CD player in 1992.

My uncle worked for Time Warner and gave us a crapload of discs, mostly unknown artsts. One disc I remember was Andrew Dice Clay's "40 Too Long".

I agree. I remember my parents had an old stereo that was a huge peice of furniture. You would open the heavy wooden top and inside was a turntable. The bass was incredible on this thing---I'm assuming the woofer on it was huge. But it was a whole peice of huge furniture.

Back in my mid teens when we all get a little weird I bought some Pink Floyds LP's and cranked them on the old stereo. They sounded way better than cd's.

Do they still even make vinyl records????
