The very first albums I bought with my own money (must've been rich at the time, I bought two) were, (hows this for musical appreciation diversity) Deep Purple in Rock, and Johnny Cash Live at San Quentin, and, aye, they were they big black vinyl discs wi' two sides. laugh.gif

First record I bought was needles & Pins by the Searchers. The day we bought our Marconiphone record player after a lot of nagging by me along the lines of "everyone's got a record player except me".

"Only you" - the Platters. Tony Williams, one of the greatest voices ever. Bought it in the Barras-vinyl 78 - not wax!

I can't remember the first Record I bought, it may have been an Elvis one.

I still l have about 60 singles and 30 LPs some of them double Albums, like Elvis 40 Greatest Hits, Perry Como 40 Greatest and Abba Hit Singles. Johnny Mathis, The Corries, Mario Lanza, too many to mention and the LPs are still in their original covers.
My husband being a Country Western fan also has some Country Western LPs. Frankie Laine, Hank Williams, Hank Locklin.

I have been told I could sell the LPs for quite a lot of money, but I still play them as I like listening to music especially when on the PC.

I hate to tell you Mary but "The Push Bike Song" was by The Mixtures January 1971, Mungo Jerry had a hit with "In the Summertime" in June 1970 but both songs had a similar beat so i can understand your confusion.

The Kinks charted with "Lola" in July 1970 a month after Mungo Jerry, so they would both have been in the charts at the same time so was it "In the Summertime" that you swapped?

My First Single was "Please Please Me" The Beatles 1963, bought from Robert McKenzie's Electrical & Record shop Argyle St Rothesay during the Glasgow Fair, and i still have it.

I constantly played my parents records as a kid (Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, etc). The first one I bought for myself was Brian Hyland - Sealed With a Kiss. I think I was about 6 or 7.
