This is the absolute very first record I ever remember owning. My sister and I had gotten sick at the same time, and our dad brought us home a record. It was called "The Chilling Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House". We thought it was AWESOME!! I must've been 4 and she was 7. This was in the mid 70s sometime. We played that record over and over again!! I still have it too!! [Linked Image]

Led Zeppelin's <span style="font-style: italic">In Through the Out Door</span>. It was sold in a plain brown wrapper, that's probably why I remember it.

That's a valuable album now. I think it was released with 4 different covers?

Yeah I had forgotten about that, but weren't they all inside the outer brown wrapper? You brushed water on it? and colors came out. I like your album too, I probably had something like that as a kid too before the Led Zep album. I know a friend had a Cheech and Chong album we listened to that my parents would have never bought for me grin

The first album I can recall going out and buying myself was "Beatles '65" - bought the mono version instead of stereo to save a buck. I still have it.

I received Madonna's 'Like a Virgin' at what I believe was my 12th birthday party. My parents wouldn't let me keep it. I replaced it with ' The Sensational Alex Harvey Band Live!!!'
