    1st Cylinder: "Under the Yum Yum Tree" -1911
    1st 78: Artie Shaw's "Begin the Beguine"...still have 2 copies, first heard at my Grandfather's when I was perhaps 6.
    1st 45: A package of several,,,,only memorable included a Jimi Hendrix and an Al Wilson soul one, about 1968.
    1st LP: Either Beach Boys "Wild Honey" or Al Hirt's Music for Latin Lovers....or a title something like that, I was a budding trumpet player.
    1st CD: No memory, guess it was not memorable.
    1st Quad LP: Billy Joel's "Turnstiles" about 1977.
    1st Surround Digital: Steve Miller "Fly Like an Eagle", the DD version. I have since progressed.
    1st Blu Ray: Beach Boys "Pet Sounds" box set.

    My music tastes run the gamut....as do my reproduction hardware.

    Wow, I wish I remembered, but my memory is VERY fuzzy..
    IIRC, the 1st LP on my collection was when we were shopping in a dept. store called "Gem", and I saw the "Jan & Dean meet BATMAN" (which is quite good- basically a comedy album with some GREAT instrumentals with the Wrecking crew, among them, the "Batman theme"...unfortunately, the last LP Jan did before the accident that would trump his musical career). Since I was a huge Batman fan because of the TV series (who wasn't back then?), I begged my Mom to get it for me; to which she responded "But you don't speak English, son, you wouldn't understand it!"...so I promised her that , if she bought me that LP, I'd LEARN English...she did and I kept my promise..I still have that battered mono copy and a few years ago I found a SEALED original copy (Libertry Records) in STEREO for about $30 on fleabay.

    I think the 1st 45 was "Live and Let die"/"I Lie around"...

    The 1st CD was either King Crimson "Three of a perfect pair" (or "Beat", both "Target" CDs)...either that , or PF WYWH (which I sold on fleabay a few years ago for $140 !!!) with Robert Plant's "The principle of moments", which I bought in 85 in , of all places , Los Angeles. To my dismay, when I got back home I discovered that the Robert Plant one had a defect..a "melted drop" on the playing side, so I took it to a Sears and convinced them that I had bought it there...and they gave me the money!!!

    I think my 1st DVD-A was Seal IV...which I remember we bought when it came out...I still didn't have a Surround system, but I was already planning on getting one (took me 4 years to do so). I remember playing the LPCM Stereo on our PA and being floored by the sound quality, compared to the normal CD...

    1st BD was either Genesis SEBTP or Rush "Signals" (EDIT: it was Jethro Tull's "Aqualung" box set)

    The cannabis has killed far too many brain cells for me to remember most of this stuff.

    I think my 1st LP bought with my own money was the Beatles Hey Jude album (a US released greatest hits/singles package). I think my first quad 8 track and my first DVD-A purchased were the same title... Alice Cooper, Billion Dollar Babies.

    I'm much better with the first girl friend question. Ahhhh, Christy... too bad it didn't work out.
