What was Your First CD?

For those of us who used to own vinyl, buying our first CD was a huge deal. I’d be willing to wager that we also remember what our first CD was, and even when we bought it. The first one I ever bought was The Traveling Willburys. For Kat, it was Ride the Lightning, by Metallica. I had to ask others if they remembered what their first ever CD was.

Sgt. Peppers June 2, 1987 – Matthew Davidson via twhirl

I think it was a Sade album… probably in 88 or 89 – Tad – the fresh maker

Ugh, Aerosmith’s "Get a Grip" which was given to me. Next I think was Counting Crows "August and Everything After" – Haggis (Sean)

REM’s Reckoning I think. – Abby Martin

Genesis Invisible Touch – George Lee via twhirl

first cd single: bush – swallowed, first cd album: songs in the key of X, first cassette: simpons sing the blues, first (and only) vinyl: los lobos – la bamba… *shakes head* – alphaxion

uh.. I think maybe it was music from Miami Vice. – Nine – Like the number

Ride the Lightning – Metallica (because I couldn’t afford anything over $10 and it was $10 used) – Justin KoЯn

my brother gave me my first portable CD player – along with it he gave me Estefan’s Into the Light and Willson Phillips CD which I can now not recall the name. I was always surprised he picked so well (for my tastes at the time) and that he wasn’t embarrassed to be seen buying them. – pea gives ♥ a bad name

What was your first CD? And, if you remember it, what about your first album on vinyl… or your first 8Track?
