Ok. Talking strictly CDs - the first album I bought was Countdown To Extinction by Megadeth. The first single I bought was Millennium by Killing Joke.

I had both of those on CD too.

CtE felt a bit like Metallica's Black album.  Like it was them moving away from thrash.

Millennium was exciting.  It was good to have KJ back as they'd been away for a few years then.

First album I ever bought was Chorus by Erasure. A far cry to what I'm into nowdays!

My earliest music purchases were cassette and I believe the first album I bought with my own actual money (in a brilliant and sadly long-defunct music shop in Torquay called Soundz) was...'Bridge of Spies' by T'Pau. It remains one of my favourite albums to this day.

My first 12" single might have been Rock Me Amadeus by Falco. As if it needed extended.

I'm still fond of it - absolutely loved it at the time. I overplayed it at a party so someone poured beer all over it and threw it into the bushes. It still played after that.
