Introducing The Beatles / Veejay Records.
As a kid I inherited a large collection of 45's from my older brother. It had a lot of the old doo-wop, early R&R, and R&B. The 1st 45 I ever bought was 'Wake Me, Shake Me' by the 4 Tops and 'My Girl' by the Temptations. The 1st albums I ever owned were Sgt Peppers, Supremes Greatest Hits, and the Vanilla Fudge (bought 'em all the same day at EJ Korvettes!;)
Steppenwolf. I can't remember the album name. It was the one with Born To Be Wild and The Pusher. I think I got it around 1970.
"Rock The Boat"-Hues Corporation
First records bought were early Beatles 45's in the '60's. First Lp was "Paranoid", by Black Sabbath, 1970.
Ah yes I remember it well going with my Dad to E.J.Korvettes. The prices were letters not number. A chart on the wall translated the prices. I wish I could say I remember the prices exactly but seem to recall most top hits costing a pretty penny in thoise days of $3.98 or something like that. Like I said I can't be sure.
Introducing the Herman Hermits
Season of the "witch", of course ;-)

First LP I bought with my own money, Elton John Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Can't remember the precise title, but Frankie Limon and the teenagers, ? Teenager falling in love. It was a LONG time ago
I think my first Lp that I paid for was Black Sabbath, Vol. Four. Boy, did that sucker rock! An unexpected benefit was that my father hated it.
For the record (no pun intended) the original 45RPM release of "Louie Louie" by The Kingsmen is on Wand Records not Chess.
