Bought at the age of 6 after negotiating some revolving credit from my sceptical parents...

(Revolving credit, 6 year old style, borrow from both parents while not telling the other that the other one is funding your purchase as well. Use funds from one to partially 'pay back' both loans while using the record purchased to collateralise loans within one's peers in the form of record stock. Early form of the type of activity that put Bernie Madoff in prison. Also worked very well at marbles).

Tch, we did this about six years ago Sprog mate.

Runaway Train, I think. I was about seven and extremely pissed off cos I only wanted to hear it the once, not keep the damn thing. What I really wanted was a penknife.

Cuban Fire

An LP by Stan Kenton. Could only play it at my pal's houses that had LP players.

Any Cliff Richard/Elvis type left me cold. A trip to Ronnie Scott's was the norm for me.

To my eternal shame, Rockin' thru' the Rye - Bill Haley. Have to agree with gg that Diana is a serious contender for greatest pop record ever. Also, first Beatles LP had an incredible impact ( I guess you had to be there}.

'Blue Tears' by The Allisons.

Even just found it in the iTunes store!

I was about 10 years old and it was a 7" vinyl single I bought it from a pal of my older brother. The fact that he and my brother walked off sniggering did make me question my judgement and having just listened to the iTunes sample I question my judgement too.

The Allisons did write a very successful song called 'Are You Sure' which was the UK enntry to the Eurovision song contest in 1961.
