Record/CD/Cassette in your collection that you owned the longest


I'm talking about the album or single you got when you were maybe eight years-old and you still have it in its now weathered package.

So what is it?

record - Jack & The Beanstalk: 6 Favorite Stories (I still have most of my kiddie records and listen to them sometimes)

cassette - Stacy Lattisaw ~ With You

cd - The Jacksons ~ The Jacksons

I also have some 8 tracks, but they didn't originally belong to me. I have a deck that works to play them on. The oldest is a greatest hits by Fats Domino on Pickwick Records. It was my grandmother's tape.

I was 6. I wanted the album with "Never Knew Love Like This Before" but store clerk at The Wiz (that was the name of the record store) convinced me to get this one.

Michael Jackson's Thriller album was the first album I ever bought. I got it in 2001 when I was 11. It's still in perfect condition. All my CDs are like new.

I have, however, inherited some of my mother's old albums but they're mostly in terrible condition and mostly on cassettes. I don't know if they still work because I have no tape player. Among her collection is Sheila E's Glamorous Life on vinyl. There's also a Sheila E single lying around somewhere. She must have been a bit of a Sheila E fan. No Prince stuff though. I wonder how one goes about becoming a Sheila E fan without being a Prince fan too? Weird.

Like A Virgin on cassette. I imagine all of the titles are rubbed or smudged from the cassette cart.

RJ you are the man! I was just about to post EWF ALL N ALL. First album I actually bought with my own money, might be the best album I ever bought! I love Open Our Eyes too, classic.

i saw the All N All tour at Madison Sqare Garden before the album came out...greatest show i ever saw in life... when i first heard "Fantasy" for the first time that night i damn near caught the Holy Ghost... IMO, "All N All" might be the greatest album ever made by anyone...listening to that joint was always a spiritual experience for me. i got on my parents nerves playing it nonstop.

Yessir Player! All N All has damn near every style of music I love ( not too mention one of the coolest album covers inside and out). I go back and forth between this and "That's the Way of the World" whenever people ask me my favorite album of all time. If I could only have one I guess I have to say All N All. Helluva first album purchase huh?!

My first vinyl (and possibly the first piece of music I ever bought) was Madonna's 1st Album. I still have it. I was buying cassettes before CDs but I can't remember my first tape. I know I chucked out a bunch of tapes when I "grew up". My first CD however was given to me as a gift by my mom when she bought me a CD player. It was Boys Club on MCA Records.

Purely out of sentimental reasons, I still have it but it's actually not bad for a 1988 one hit wonder. I would post an image but I forgot how to.

Nice. The last time I played an 8-track was in the 80s. That player I had is long gone to somewhere I don't recall.

One of my hubby and mines 1st purchase after we were married, we purchased a stereo set, It had 2 huge ass speakers, a turntable, 2 cassette players and an 8 track. We still have it, and it is useable, although the foam that was in front of the speakers has long fallen off.


We had a little 13 inch black and white TV, but we had our eyes on this stereo. Both of us combined had a lot of albums, 8 tracks and cassettes, we still have every single 1 of them. smile

Track with no player. I would love to just one more time here that
player click tracks. Remember those old 8 tracks your parents used to have with a lady with an Afro on the front with various artists on the 8track tape?

I was going to say Shannon's Let the Music Play vinyl LP which I bought in early 1984, but found the S.O.S. Band's "Just Be Good to Me" 7" single in my collection which I got the previous year so that's my answer.




I had many records I bought earlier like the Grease soundtrack and Thriller, but all of those were either sold or given away.
