First 45rpm record I remember buying was in 1957 or 58 in La Crosse Wisconsin, it was either "Let the Bells Keep Ringing" by Paul Anka or "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" by Laurie London, moved to Winona Minnesota and that is where I would have bought my first album, don't remember the title but it would have been bought a Choates dept. store, still have many of the 45's and albums that I bought from 1957 to around 1966, almost all of them would have been bought in La Crosse Wisconsin, Winona Minnesota and Rochester Minnesota and almost all of them are in very good condition.

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Elton John

To this day his best album. Honest good art rock. No mushy heart-break/love songs.

Start a thread like this? This is an article in the Pioneer Press newspaper. Perhaps if you had functioning frontal lobes, you might have been able to reason that out instead of confirming to the planet what a clueless assclown you are.

Wow Ross lists all three regional chains but totally omits most of the Twin Cities' dozen independent shops. Not really a choice in line with a day supposed to be helping independent record shops.

The first record (45) I purchased was "How Much Is That Doggy In The Window" by Patti Page I believe. I took the bus downtown as a 9 year old and bought the record for $.25. Long time ago.

Let see my first 2 Albums I won from KDWB. 1976, At 12 years old in a house with 5 kids and Mom and Pops scraping everything they had to keep us fed there was no room in their budget for Albums. Won Boston first, then Jefferson Star Ship Red Octapus next. Still have them somewhere around here.

My first record purchase was made in about '66 at Shoppers City on White Bear Ave., and was "All Summer Long" by the Beach Boys. To this day I think it's the finest album I've ever bought. I was 9 at the time and had been blown away by "I Get Around" on the radio a couple of summers before. This album helped open the door to the world for me--girls, high school, the ocean, fast cars, how to deal with bullies, heartbreak, and how to have FUN.
