    Good Grief! I remember buying my first CD player and CDs – It’s been 30 years?!?!?!

    Thanks Dan for yet another reminder that I’m not as young I was blissfully tinking I was.

    You’re welcome! And in case you were thinking of buying your CDs a card, the CDs birthday was yesterday. So be sure to write “belated” in it.

    I was reading an article about this, people all remembered what their first cd was. For me, I bought two cds as my “first” cd: Stone Temple Pilots “Purple” and The Crow soundtrack. Can’t get much more 90’s than that!

    I still remember going to the store to buy a record in about ‘90 or ’91 and being told (rather obnoxiously) that record players were “obsolete equipment.” I knew it had been a while since I’d gone out to buy a record but geeze . . .

    I went all out for my first CD purchase – a recording of the 1812 Overture featuring actual cannons. I was like the guy in the Memorex ads, just sitting in front of my stereo letting the pressure waves from cannon fire wash over me.

    The story I heard was that originally CDs were to hold only 60 minutes of music, but some bigshot at Sony pushed to have them hold 74 minutes, so the whole of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony (the bigshot’s favorite) could be on one disc.
    I remember how expensive they were when they first came out, and saving my pennies as a starving student to buy one.
    My first CD player cost around $280, and the discs were $35.
    This was back in ’86 or ’87, so double those amounts to factor in inflation.

    It was about 1990. I went into a record store to look around. I saw the cassettes and those CD things, whatever they were, and went looking for the LP’s. I kept looking and looking, and about the time I found one small bin of used disco 13" singles, I realized that there were no LP’s in the record store. Cultural Shock!! I bought a Was (Not Was) cassette and got my first CD player for Christmas. I have a 300 CD player now, but I don’t use it very much any more.
