Hey gang,
More great posts this past week from everyone. Thanks for tackling the tough, esoteric stuff so gamely! Your courage is inspiring :). We’ve worked hard, so this week, let’s make it easy, shall we?
I am pretty sure that the first record I ever bought was a 45rpm single of Nick Gilder‘s Hot Child in the City (how awesome is that?). The most recent record I’ve bought is Sensuous by Cornelius.
Where did you start, and where are you now? A snapshot, please, of two records: your first purchase, and your most recent.
This should be fun,

    I believe the first album I bought was The Eagles Greatest Hits Vol. 2 on cassette when I was about 10. The cd that got me going with my current collection was Semisonic's Feeling Strangely Fine, and I just downloaded The Frames' Dance The Devil from emusic yesterday.

    You know how there Sirius Sattelite Radio and XM? How about Pandora having a device that connects to your car stereo system via cellular connection and you can play your favorite artists and favorite songs, just like this wonderful website does. Nothing out there does for your car what the Pandora does for your personal computer and home stereo system.... Peace, Love and Kick Ass! hehe

    happily, martin, you can already do that very thing through any sprint phone. check out the pandora home page and look at the "pandora on the go" options, and you'll be all set. here's the link if you want to cut and paste it instead - cheers, mz

    My first album was The Eagles, Hotel California. The timing of this thread is a little ironic because the last CD I purchased was the new Eagles CD. I really haven't thought much about them in the last 6 or 8 years because I was so tired of endless "greatest hits" compilations. The new cds are good, but they are not Hotel California.
