  1. Blonde on blonde. Now that title would be probably a porn site, but then it was the greatest double album ever (Dylan of course) and has remained so ever since IMHO.

  2. First album was “From a Jack to a King” next was “Wish me a rainbow” by Gunter Kallmann “. Number 3 was “Cosmos Factory”. I still have all 3 LP’s.

  3. The first album l brought was the Atlantics.

  4. The first album i purchased was a 10″ LP of Miles Davis “Birth of the cool”
