Here's a question I don't think we ever had before (i.e., on the old forum).
What was the first record (or CD, for you younger folks!) you ever owned, and how old were you?
Mine was the 2-LP compilation THIS IS THE MOODY BLUES, which I got when I was 13. I don't remember what ultimately happened to it (although I do know that I didn't know how to take care of records back then), but many years later I have all of the albums (on CD of course) from the period it represents. In retrospect, there are a few cases where I feel they included or omitted songs that didn't deserve it. I think ON THE THRESHOLD OF A DREAMS was over-represented, and it's too bad EVERY GOOD BOY DESERVES FAVOUR is barely represented at all (even non-album tracks get better representation, in terms of actual song lengths!).
