Answers to tomorrow’s thefridayfive questions!
1. What was the first album you ever bought?
Wicked Game by Chris Isaak is the first one I remember buying with my own work earned money. I had also bought like a dozen vinyl albums from a second hand book shop and new cassettes with my weekly allowance or birthday money before, but I don’t count them as first anything for some reason.
2. What format was it? (cassette, CD, other?)
3. How old were you?
My Mom bought me a stereo tower for my 17th birthday, and I bought the CD soonish after that. So I’d have turned 17 a few weeks or a few months earlier, can’t remember exactly. I only know for sure that it was before I moved to Helsinki Metropolitan Area for the library studies, and that move happened in the fall about three months before my 18th birthday.
4. Where did you hear it?
5. Did your parents approve?
My Dad had just died a year ago, but my Mom was fine with it! She also enjoys the CD in question. I first made her a cassette copy, and then when computers came along, made her a CD copy. I still have it and it’s still one of my best favorites ever.
