    Like I said, its always a drag to first encounter people on a forum who are just looking to bust your vibe, pull you down a notch, mock, belittle, be snarky, pull rank, etc etc.

    So yes "dad"-- a very particular type of "dad" ie. a bad one.

    Okay, if Chronic Town nullifies Murmur then my first new debut LP purchase would have been the first General Public LP in 1984.

    Angel Clare by Art Garfunkel.

    Somehow, a sealed copy found its way into a nearby Goodwill store in 1974, and I bought it for whatever the store's going price was at the time (50 cents, perhaps). Garfunkel's next LP wasn't until Breakaway in 1975 ("Second Avenue" was a stand-alone single in 1974).

    Very tough question - so hard to categorize something in a way that I never had before, especially since I need to go back quite a way.

    I was going to mention one, but then I remembered an earlier occurrence:

    Julian Lennon's Valotte

    I also saw him on that debut tour (and again, the following year.) I loved that cassette so much that I transcribed all the lyrics so I could sing along. I was 11.

    The Stone Roses..bought it the same week it first charted in the UK. Was buying a lot of indie music blind back then and so I (wrongly) thought from the name they’d be a goth group - boy I was wrong. Liked it a lot a after a few plays.

  11. Heh. Yeah, this would have been another on my list. 1987, right? I'm in Junior High, and like the NWA album I posted above, I saw the GnR cassette on the shelf with that wild album cover, so I thought it must be cool. It was! I bought that one sight unheard, as well. :D

    God bless the OP for calling out people who can't follow directions. More people should be like him.

    Very hard question. Had to think about it for awhile, but I think my answer is Manowar "Battle Hymns".

    Nope. Wrong. It was Men At Work. Seriously. This is hard. I don't like working under this kind of pressure. :/

    Might've been an earlier example on vinyl or cassette, but I'll go with the one I remember because it was one of the first 5 CDs I ever bought: Crowded House / Crowded House.

    Well if the Commodores came out first, then that is your answer. You can't have more than one answer. The question isn't "which debut albums you bought when they first came out?".

    You don't get it. Which one of those did you buy first while it was still their debut?

    Ok. It's the Stylistics debut album then from 1971, as it predates the other debut albums I bought, as the very first debut album I bought when the album was first relased and when it was the only album released by the Stylistics at that time (1971).

    The Stylistics : The Stylistics (1971)

    Featuring four Top 40 hits:
    Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart) - #39 (1971)
    You Are Everything - #9 (1971)
    Betcha by Golly, Wow - #3 (1972)
    People Make the World Go Round - #25 (1972)
