Great idea Pooh ........ 8)

I think, it was a hell of long time ago, but I think it was
Telstar by The Tornado’s.

It would have been 1962 and I would have been a carefree 10 year old :laugh:

First album - Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Tarkus.

First album I ever owned (was bought for me) - Songs from Winnie the Pooh. :laugh:

I'm not that bad when it comes to singles, as I was already 15 and got myself Dancing With Tears in my Eyes - Ultravox :)

First record - Afterburner from ZZ Top.

But there were cassettes before that although you wouldn't know the artists so I'm safe anyway :p

I know that my first single was Prince Charming by Adam and the Ants (I still think Ant music rocks :p ). Have no idea what my first album was. Probably something grungey (I can only hope).

Rolf Harris wasn't happy about Prince Charming as the tune is actually pinched from Rolf's 1965 song "War Canoe". :laugh:

Crashing towards us

Lean on the paddles
Lean on and lift out, easily

Thank you Tony.

Rolf you are forgiven for bastardizing Stairway to Heaven and for the Wobble Board and seeing as I’m in such a good mood for The Stylophone as well.

Listen to this......

Really? you're saying "first records" means only singles? if so it's me who have to :oops:
It's says records plural - so it doesn't matter at all, especially as the sizes don't get mentioned ;)

Reading my own quote back you could be forgiven for thinking that married couples were not allowed to reply to this thread :oops:

I wasn't feeling myself when I wrote that post.

Probably best not to pick up on that comment either Jan :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Who? Me? Comment? About picking up? :twisted:

No worries on that score - I don't pick up after anyone. I do however subscribe to the Quentin Crisp method of dusting - don't do that either ;)

Ah! You do know the meaning of "Turning Japanese!" :laugh:
Waking up in cold, wet, rainy and tonight freezing Manchester for over half a century only leads me to think that I have got all so wrong and you have it oh so right. You’re a lucky Guy Pooh :cry:
