I’ve seen the question going around: What was the first CD you ever bought? (Or owned, I suppose). Personally, I bought my first two CDs on the same day, and kind of enjoy the cognitive dissonance between the two. Here we go:
Of course, I already owned plenty of music by that point. I didn’t get a CD player until 1992, necessitating the purchase of CDs and the purchasing of CDs having been pointless before that. I’d bought plenty of casette tapes, records, and even a few 8-tracks previous to that day.
Still, I like the juxtapositon of the simultaneous purchase of these two best.
