What was the first single you bought?

Single - 'Puff the Magic Dragon' by Peter, Paul and Mary.
LP - 'Wipeout' by The Surfaris.
I still have the LP but Puff seems to have faded away, as predicted in the song.
I also have the Dansette record player I bought at about the same time, in reasonable condition except that it doesn't play any more...

Legend of Xanadu by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich (or something like that)
It's kind of alarming I dug a song with whipcracks in it when I was less than 10 :roll:

I got a phonograph in 1966. I remember buying a few 45's. Two of them were "Cool Jerk" (the Capitols) and "Little Red Riding Hood" (Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs).

I also bought the Righteous Brothers album "Soul and Inspiration".
