    can you remember the first cd that you ever bought?
    mine was dokken-under lock and key, many years ago.
    still have it in my collection today.

    anyone else remember?

    Mine was Def Leppard - Hysteria which I have not played in years but is still in my collection and has got some classic 80's rock songs on it.

    Thank god we have moved on from those days of big hair and tight denim which was 80's rock :)

    Big Country - the Crossing !

    Back in the days when they said CD's would probably last 10 years before disintegrating, unfortunately they were wrong :devil:

    "What's the Story Morning Glory"

    Pity it's a rubbish recording- it sounds terrible! It was OK with my budget Yamaha system, moved upto DAC/Pre/Power and it's unbearable.

    The best recorded album Oasis made was Masterplan.

    A classic! Saw them supporting AC/DC in 1988 and they were great :) 'In My Dreams' is a great song.

    First CD I ever bought was Ratt 'Out of the Cellar'. I may well go and put 'Invasion of Your Privacy' on now I've thought about them, another cracking band :smashin:

    Oops, no, I tell a lie... the first CD I bought was Kiss 'Destroyer'. God, it's all coming back to me now!

    obviously we are both from the same era juboy! i saw them play support to a german band called accept back in the mid to late 80`s. what a night that was.

    i used to have out of the cellar on vinyl - wanted man and all that wasn`t it? i used to play in a band then, and we used to cover wanted man, so brings back great memories

    I used to love Ratt. I was in band too, we used to play 'You're In Love' by Ratt :)

    I was into all that stuff, Poison, Motley, Ratt, Warrant, Shark Island, Roxx Gang, Dokken, Cinderella, Twisted Sister, Vain, Skid Row, Slaughter, Vinnie Vincent Invasion, Love/Hate, WASP and about a million more...

    yeah that`a all the stuff i was listening to and more. i remember travelling over to castle donnington one year for a gig and it had a brilliant line up:

    ac/dc
    van halen(with dave lee roth)
    ozzy osbourne
    gary moore
    accept
    motley crue

    at a guess i`d say it was about 1983 or 1984. motley crue hadn`t made it big at that stage, hence them being the opening act!

    Brothers In Arms.
    I bought the first Sony, a CDP-101, it came with Escape by Journey and a sampler with Blue Eyes by Elton John and suchlike.
    I remember at the time Linn had full page ads in all the hi-fi comics with a list of defunct formats crossed out, 8-Track, Elcaset, CD crossed out too, don't buy a lemon they advised.
    Similar today, makers dissing SACD and DVD-A, like Musical Fidelity, who now have SACD player but shortly before stated CD was superior :rolleyes:

    I bought two titles on the same day for my first CD's. Police Greatest Hits and Queen Greatest Hits I & II. Both still get regularly played, although I'm gradually collecting the almbums of both artists, so they're getting played less.

    :clap: I was there too. It was '84 and you forgot Y&T (who were appalling). DLR was on top form - "You throw any more sh*t at me and I'll come down there and f*** your girlfriend" A classic line. I'm pretty sure the classic VH line up never played England again. Did anyone really prefer Sammy Hagar? Oh God, what have I started?

    I can remember my first 3!

    1) T'Pau - Bridge of Spies
    2) Level 42 - Running in the family "Platinum Edition" !!!
    3) Terence Trent D'Arby - Introducting the hardline according to

    All of which graced my Philips 14 Bit CD player - <sigh> the nostalgia. I've still got all three, but never listen to any of them. Might dig out TTD - I seem to remember that wasn't bad :) I do remember the bass on Level 42 sounded awesome, but then it was 16 years ago and I was young enough to consider that dismanting a Sony CDP-101 that my dad had was a good idea. Doh doh doh!

    Mine was 'The Christians' self-titled CD.

    The tape I had previously bought got mangled in my tape deck so I decide there and then that I'd had enough of tapes and it was time to get going with CDs.

    god y&t must have been bad as i can`t remember them playing. where on the bill did they appear do you remember?
    i had a couple of their albums i think- dave menketti was the singer/guitarist as far as i can remember. come hell or high water and mean streak-that was them wasn`t it.
    as for diamond dave with vh well it was great to see him, a true showman.

    I used to like Y&T :blush:

    'Summertime Girls' is a classic!

    Check out their stuff at:

    http://www.algonet.se/~vikingse/album_index.html

    'Don't Stop Running' from In Rock We Trust is worth a listen ;)

    God, I'm going to be listening through their back catalogue all day now...

    remember seeing them play support to ac/dc in dublin in the 80`s and they were great. still trying to picture them on the bill at donnington in 84 but can`t remember them at all!
    juboy i`m starting to worry that there are no bands out there that we have a difference of opinion on:laugh:
