BWH tagged me to do this little posting about what was the first album I ever bought and memories associated with it.
I have to be honest and say that I bought 45's long before I bought albums. My mom and I used to go to the local record store in Malden Square (totally dating myself here) and buy them all the time. The oldest song I remember buying is "If I can't have you" by Yvonne Elliman - that and "Lead Me On" by Maxine Nightingale. Oh, and maybe "Boogie Oogie, Oogie" by Taste of Honey.
The first album I remember buying, was one that I still love to this day. My friends and I were obsessed with this group. Watching the television shows, pretending to be dating them (I loved Davy Jones, of course!) -- even pretending to be them. Girls can be silly, what can I say.
(Tell me, how adorable is Davy Jones in this picture? For those of you who "pretend" you don't know who he is, he's the cute one at the bottom....Loved, loved, loved him! Waaay more than Marcia Brady ever did! I'd have fought her for him!)
