@adasauce I probably bought a few tapes of my own, but don't quite remember which ones. (Tom Cochrane's "Life if a Highway" comes to mind.)
The first one I know definitely was my first CD: Bon Jovi "These Days." I've never been a huge Bon Jovi fan, so I don't really know why I chose that in particular. It's a solid album, though. I still listen once in a rare while.
@adasauce I do remember that I *probably* would have bought something else (not sure what), had the timing been different.
I got my first CD player as a birthday present. Since my birthday is pretty close to Christmas, I had to buy an album that wasn't likely to be given as a Christmas gift and so, for some reason, I chose Bon Jovi since I had definitely not asked for it for Christmas.
@ink_slinger I had a couple albums like that. Just whatever was selling well at the time or on display at the music store.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
