What was the first single and album you bought?

We have been having a discussion this afternoon in the web development team about what was the first music single and album that you bought.
So out of interest we thought we'd open it up to the community users too  Grin
So starter for ten...
Single: Eurythmics - Who's that girl
Album: Transvision Vamp - Velveteen (Its the first i can remember but must be one before that!)

I can't remember the first single I bought, but I'm fairly sure that my first album was Queen: Greatest Hits

Going back to the dark ages................ when you could only buy 78 r.p.m. shellac records.....

the first one I bought was    Blacksmiths swing  (or similar name, can`t be sure) but it was by  Earl Bostik and his orchestra  ! ! ! !...
Anyone go further back than that ? Grin Roll eyes

I have a feeling it might have been this, before I got really really fed up with cheesy quasi-classical compilations.

Damn.
I hesitate to admit this, but...
Single: Dancing in the Street 7" - David Bowie and Mick Jagger (I'm not in the least embarrassed about this one. It's an awesome song.)
Album: Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers on cassette.

Nope.... not any more.....But I did construct a 3 valve 1920`s panel radio with a (home made) Horn speaker similar to the one shown.... It worked a treat. ! ! Smiley

Uh Oh ...  Embarrassed
First Single : The J Giles Band ... Centrefold this did surprise my parents somewhat, I knew not what the song was about at that age! Still figuring it out to be honest.  Wink

Must admit the first single I bought was "You were made for me" by Freddie & The Dreamers.  I didn't buy an album till much later and that was "The Monkees" by (of course) The Monkees.
I think that's showing my age a bit.  Smiley
