when i decided i would start getting CDs I went in one of the used record stores on OSU campus. I picked up one on sale - Priest Live.
I wasn't a huge priest fan but i liked 'em and the price was right. I still play that disc occasionally to this day.
I think it was 1987 and I'm pretty sure it was CCR's greatest hits. It was either that or Elvis's Golden Records.
This is very embarrassing now but it was Winger's Heart of the Young.
Led Zeppelin 4
Tragically Hip - Up to Here
I bought them both at the same time with money I won at some Geography contest I entered in grade 10.

I don't remember the year, sometime in the mid to late '80s but definetly before 1989 I got my first CD player and CDs for Christmas from my mom and sister. The Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo and Who's Next by The Who. Great starts to my CD collection. I also got a Beatles CD that was about three inches
wide and only had Get Back and Don't Let Me Down on it. I am a Beatles fan but the main reason I got that one was because my mom thought it was "cute".
