Wow, weird timing with this KISS talk. My local radio station 89.3 The Current is doing the top 893 debut albums (as voted by listeners). KISS just played right now.

They just rolled into 700 this hour. The first couple hundred have made for some excellent eclectic playlisting.
 

I'm more likely to listen to a full album on vinyl. Otherwise, I put on a playlist and drive, write, etc.
If Im driving or having a few beers alone at home I put on CDs too, otherwise people dont have the attention span. Which seems odd as youd figure 8 people in a living room drinking, talking and shooting darts wouldnt care less whats on the radio but nope, people just get louder and want to hear this or that. Tried playlists too but cant please everyone.

I’m a music nut- Mom was a music teacher, so I grew up in a house full of LPs & 45s. My first albums that were my own were:

Foreigner 4
ELO Time
Heavy Metal Soundtrack
Elton John Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Elton John Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy
And a Beatles album on red vinyl. (Don’t remember the name right now)

To the best of my recollection, the first one I bought with my own money was Gary Numan’s I, Assassin.

After that, it’s a blur as to what was bought in what order.

First album I ever bought was the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper - and I bought it in London, no less, while there on family vacation. :)

Still the only Beatles anything I've ever owned, but then again after Sgt. Pepper what more do you need?

I think the next LP I bought, some years later, was The Cars' first, quickly followed by ACDC Back In Black.

Nice picks. I have very little Beatles in my collection because the LPs are so overpriced. Might have to just get some reissues for listening I suppose.

I think the first music I ever bought myself was Heart's self-titled ablum on cassette... I would have been about twelve.

However, I'd inherited a small stack of records from my older cousin Chuck along with his hand-me-down clothes, which included several KISS albums, Ratt's Out of the Cellar, AC/DC's Back in Black and Def Leopard's Hysteria... There may have been a few others as well.
