    Now by oldest I don't mean in terms of the music. I mean what is physically the oldest CD that you own?
    I have a CD by The Power Station (remember them?) that I bought in 1985 and I still have it! Crazy.
    Anyone else?

    I believe it is Joe Satriani (Surfing with the Alien) which I believe was my first CD in 1990.

    Oops, my wife just informed me that it was Motley Crue (Too Fast for Love) somewhere around 1988.

    I think in terms of disc age, it would probably be a Blue Oyster Cult CD I got used.

    I believe my first CD is Pearl Jam Ten, which I still listen to. My favorite song on the album is Black.

    My first CDs were Pink Floyd's Animals and Sting's ...Nothing Like the Sun, both bought the same day I got my first CD player in '88.

    I bought Rush's "Moving Pictures" in 1986 at the same time I bought my first CD player. I'm pretty sure "Moving Pictures" was among the first CD's released in the format.

    The Police - Synchronicity. The album came out in June, 1983 but I assume the CD came later.

    1/2 of a Gershwin CD from 1986. Don't ask me where the other half is.

    I know the first batch of CDs I bought included Billy Joel's "The Nylon Curtain," Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon," Tangerine Dream's "Exit," and Dave Grusin's "Night Lines." All of these were purchased in the summer of 1984 ! Yes, I still have them (and they haven't rotted!). The Billy Joel and PF are Japanese imports.

    I have a Denon recording of JS Bach organ music which IIRC was released in 1983 - I bought it at release time. Japanese import as there were NO US pressing facilities at the time, so I can't read the liner notes. Helmuth Rilling at the organ.
    Edit: when I got home I looked at it. Denon #38C37-7039. Has a copyright date of "1983.5" on it. [​IMG]

    The first CD I ever bought was Madonna's "Like A Virgin"- hey, at least it was a digital recording. I still have the longbox it came in (I always saved those) and the CD label has the "crosshairs" design that the Warner-affiliated companies printed on all their discs (manufactured in West Germany).
    The 2nd CD I ever bought was Thomas Dolby's "Golden Age of Wireless", so I think that makes up for my choice of the first CD [​IMG]

    Man, the used thing throws a wrench in it because I might have a few that I bought used after others I bought new.

    But based on when it went home with me then my first 5 were:

    Unforgettable Fire

    Physical Grafitti

    Rewind (Stones)

    Moving Pictures

    Hold Your Fire

    1987 just when Hold Your Fire had been released. 87 doesn't sound that long ago but it sure feels it. We would make bi-weekly runs to the new/used CD store dreaming of a car CD player but having to be satisfied with ripping open our long boxes on the way home.

    Now a long box would seem so out of place it would be strange. Funny how quickly things change.

    When I bought my first CD player in 1984, I bought "The Cars Greatest Hits"

    There weren't too many CDs out when I got my 1st player and I took home the only 2 titles they had in stock at the store, Pink Floyd "Wish You Were Here" and Bob James and Earl Klugh "One on One."

    John Cougar Mellencamp, Scarecrow, Summer of 1986.
    Paid $400 for the player, $25 for the CD. Don't even ask about whether it was a multi-disc player or not - those were pure science fiction back then. So were remote controls. [​IMG]

    I could appreciate the gag in MIB, because The Beatles' "White Album" had been both my first CD and my first rebuy.

    I now have hundreds and hundreds of CD's, but the first one was a collection of songs from Disney movies - somewhere around 1986.
