Which got me thinking. I bought my first CD player, and my first 2 CDs, on holiday in France (I'd been saving up for ages to buy one but the holiday cottage Dad'd rented was so horribly remote we were dying of boredom in the evenings). They were:
The Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
The Art of Noise The Best of The Art of Noise
I was approximately 16, so this was roughly 1990. I've still got both.
What was the first CD you bought, if any, why, and how old were you?
(yes, the title is inspired by the opening song on the first CD, for those that would otherwise insist on asking the obvious)
(And yes, it's been over a year since I last posted, no particular reason, but, y'know, this seemed like a good idea for a post so I'm posting it)
