Do we mean album, regardless of format or actual vinyl album, because my first album was on cassette?

Cool, Blues Brothers Soundtrack, don't know when, probably around 1989.

First vinyl(sort of) album was PWEI - Cure for Sanity on picture disc LP. Never played it...

In 1977, my sister got it for me, for Christmas, (I was 11), well that's what we told my parents - I bought it, my parents didn't approve Confused.

This would have been mine but Woolworths on Canvey Island were old out and I got the same Queen album as Simon - unbeknown to me at the time Jazz had a very large poster of naked women on bikes - no wonder my Dad agreed to the purchase!

Yes, my Mum did the same with my poster. I think my elder brother stashed it away.
