Beatles in Hamburg (Tony sheridan sessions.) I was 14ish, had a token, and it was the only band name I recognised. (You bought LP's in appliance stores in those days, and the choice was limited.) I knew nothing about The Beatles, and was shocked at how sh*t it was.
I bought Rolf Harris's Greatest Hits next. Much much better

I remember appliance stores selling records. In fact, where I grew up in Hounslow, the best place to buy Punk/New Wave singles was Rumbelows in the High Street. You could buy a toaster on the way out.

My first album was A Hard Day's Night, but that was bought for me as I would only have been about 8 or 9 at the time. I think the first I bought myself was either 'Slade Alive', or one of those 'Mowtown Chartbusters' compilations.

We have a Tony Sheridan record with the Beatles at my house.  We'll just say that we're not fans of Tony Sheridan. :-/

The first Beatles album I bought was "Help!" on cassette, in 1999. The first CDs I bought were the Red and Blue albums that same year.

First CD I bought was Sgt Pepper. I bought it on June 1, 1987. I didn't even have a CD player until months later. I had a Blue box, that I listened to, and a few American Albums.

Well, my first Beatles CD was "live at the BBC", as that was the only DoCD at that moment in that store (strange that there was no blue or red album). I actually think that was quite a nice start, I enjoyed hearing them talk ( " I'm John and I too play a guitar, sometimes I play the fool ... " - hillarious  ;D ) and the songs are great. Still like the album a lot and listen to it regulary.

Beatles 1, I had worn out the one my dad gave me so I saved up for another one. That CD was the first really real music I had listened to (I was seven) I'm glad my love for music started with the Beatles :)

I was given the Red album, the Blue album and Yellow Submarine for Christmas in 1976 when I was 9. My aunt had bought them second hand and I played them non-stop on my really crappy record player.

I used to listen to YS a lot back then (well, I only had three albums!!) and it never struck me as strange that side 2 was all orchestral music. I would play the March of the Meanies song especially loud because it used to scare my younger brother (I now feel guilty about being so cruel!)

The first record I bought myself was the Hollywood Bowl LP in 1977. I used to spend ages looking at the inner sleeve which had all the other Beatles LPs listed, with the song titles. I could list the tracks on every Beatles album, in the right running order, long before I'd even heard the albums!!

I then bought all the other LPs over the next few years - the two-box EMI pressings - and I got the box set of singles as a present from the same aunt who'd bought my original 3 LPs. I still have all my old records and play them to this day.

It was years before I actually spent money on any record that wasn't the Beatles - I think it was probably the Rolled Gold compilation by the Stones.

I remember having to the Red Album, MMT, Love Songs, and Yellow Submarine. I have no idea which came first, but these are the ones I know I had. Then I'd always borrow my cousins albums cuz she had them all! Mostly I remember staring at the inside of Love Songs and reading/staring at the pics in the MMT booklet over and over and over and over. While listening to the music of course. Ah, simpler days...

Received both '62-66 & '67-70' as a Christmas presents in the late 70's.

It's all been downhill since then.  ha2ha

Greetings from a damp UK!!  Yay!  My first post here :)
My first Beatles LP purchase was Please Please Me in about '75...I'd already 'borrowed' With, Hard Days Night, aand For Sale from my parents (still got 'em too!(the records, that is...though I do still have the parents too....ahem!))
Since then I've collected all the UK originals, many re-issues, and a lot of interesting foriegn releases, and I think Revolver was my first Beatles CD, though I 'had' to buy the stereo remasters on the day of release....that was a bit of a special feeling :)
Cheers,
Steve.
