The Society of Cool
We have had various lists about what we like but this is the very first record you ever bought, not a mod one if it wasn't one. Be honest and let's see what comes up.
My first record i bought for myself with my own money was ISLANDS OF DREAMS by the SPRINGFIELDS ( including Dusty ) late '62 / 63
This is one of the tracks I put on my wedding invite cd. The first record I bought with my own money - Come Back My Love by Darts. I still know all the words without even thinking!
remember your a womble ,,1970 something ,,classic
The first record I ever bought was 'Rat Race' by The Specials, around September 1980. I also bought their first LP around the same time. I was but a plastic Mod then and thought that they were a Mod band ha ha.
I have to admit that prior to getting into the Mod scene I had not really shown any interest in buying records, now I have a fairly decent selection of great vinyls.
"Message in a bottle" by The police...still have it somewhere, still convinced he says 5 years since i broke my nose too !
i used to tell people it was Xray Spex - Dayglow but im sure i bought another record before but was too embarassed to admit it but after seeing some of your dreadful purchases i will come clean im pretty sure it was Racey - Some Girls Wont. i ll get my coat.
That's what it's all about be honest even it is dreadful.. HE HE !
Mine was The Beatles' "I Feel Fine" b/w "She's A Woman" (U.S. single on Capitol Records). I bought it out of an "oldies" bin at a department store where my Mom worked in about 1969.
All Around The World by The Jam, 1977 with picture sleeve.
I was 15 at the time and can remember going into school looking like Weller and being sent home and told to come back when I had the appropriate uniform on,I thought I was as cool as f*** I even had the jam spats,great days..
My first record was The Who "anyway, anyhow, anywhere" at a local auction for LPs. It is one of my favourites among that it was my first.
