Hate to admit it but
Album was "Portrait of Donny" by Donny Osmond
Single was probably something similar
In my defence I was only five and heavily influenced by the tastes of the girl next door.:o

Single: Blackberry Way - The Move
LP: Five Bridges Suite - The Nice
http://www.collectable-records.ru/images/GROUPS/nice/five%20bridges/full_fr.jpg

Blackberry Way
Blackberry Way absolutely pouring down with rain,
it's a terrible day.
Up with the lark, silly girl I don't know what to say,
She was running away.
But now I'm standing on the corner,
lost in the things that I said.
What am I supposed to do now?

Goodbye Blackberry Way
I can't see you, I don't need you.
Goodbye Blackberry Way
Sure to want me back another day.

Flowers in the park overgrowing but the trees are bare
There's a memory there.
Boats on the lake, unattended now for all to drown
I'm incredibly down.
Just like myself they are neglected,
turn with my eyes to the wall
What am I supposed to do now?

Goodbye Blackberry Way
I can't see you, I don't need you.
Goodbye Blackberry Way
Sure to want me back another day.

Run for the train, look behind you for she may be there
said a thing in the air
Blackberry Way, See the battlefield of careless sins
cast to the winds
So full of emptiness without her,
lost in the words that I said.
What am I supposed to do now?

Goodbye Blackberry Way
I can't see you, I don't need you.
Goodbye Blackberry Way
Sure to want me back another day.

Goodbye Blackberry Way
I can't see you, I don't need you.
Goodbye Blackberry Way
Sure to want me back another day.

My next was............Glad all Over by the DCV (also bought Bits and Pieces)

First album was on the 'Ace of Hearts' budget label and was Buddy Holly - That'll be the Day. It was 5 years after his death but had early (and very raw) versions of the eponymous track, Blue Days Black Nights, Rock around with Olive Vee, You are my One Desire etc etc.

Think I know what I'll be listening to tonight.........

And looking back on it, he shouldn't have been quite so frightening, being named 'Buxton' presumably after the town in the Peak District. Had an accent to match, too.

Still, scary enough to have left a deep and indelible impression. Anyone else still given the shivers by Buxton the Blue Cat?

No, but Peter and the Wolf brought back great memories.

First Single was either "No No Leta" (spelling is probably all over the place) It was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest in about 1967.

The first record I remember being given was a double album with the entire commentary by Kenneth Wolstenhome of the '66 final. Probably would have been Christmas that year.

First single was 'Billy dont be a hero' by Paper Lace ( and released on Red Bus Records and apparently worth about 50-60 quid now which means I have my pension fund in a box in my mums attic )

Album is slightly more difficult but I can remember going to HMV in Oxford Street and buying Led Zeppelin 1 & 2 at the same time.

Don't quite go back to the Move, but my first single might have included Roy Wood nonetheless. That's to say it was probably something by Wizzard - Angel Finger probably. But it might have been Cum on feel the noize (or however they spelt it) by Slade. Or Life on Mars by Bowie. Or Tiger Feet by Mud. I can't remember - it was all so long ago.

First album was, I think, Dark Side of the Moon. Might have been Selling England by the Pound.

Woolworths used to sell records on the Embassy label which were soundalikes and you used to get a song from the top ten on each side for 6shillings and 9 pence,how sad I bet I am the only one old enough on here to remember them.
My first was a Ken Dodd soundalike on one side and Eden Kane on the other.

You've lost the bet then :D

I used to buy similar 45s on the Bell label...intended for juke boxes, I think.

(Anorak fact: Eden Kane's real name was Richard Sarstedt, brother of Peter Sarstedt. They lived in Norbury: Peter now lives in Coulsdon and Richard in the US)

First album possessed was either Trumpton or Camberwick Green (Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble, Grub). Also had the Goodies' "Funky Gibbon". First album I bought was probably "Parallel lines" by Blondie, now she was a looker.... seeing Blondie do Denis Denis on TOTP aroused a lot of interest in pop music in this thirteen year old. And first CD, God knows.... I now run a record company and hardly ever buy records.

There was also another brother Robin who had a top 10 hit with "My Resistance is Low" in the mid 70's.

I must confess that I saw Eden Kane on the Solid Gold 60s tour at the Fairfield a couple of years back and he did not take himself too seriously, and still sounds pretty good.

I'd forgotten all about those! I'm sure there was a tale of Peter Rabit in blue, pink and yellow ones as well. I'm pleased to say I am too young to have bought them myself. :)

As for my single, 35 years later I am now secure enough in my own personality to admit it was "You're the lady" by Ester and Abi Ofarim.

The first LP I owned was a collection of 50s Rock & Roll Hits on cheap lable from Woolies. 9s 11d or 49p, I can't remeber which.

My first proper 'Album' was "Air Conditioning" by Curved Air. I've still got it - a black vinyl edition unfortunately.

First proper (no pinky and perky singles :D ) 7'' single was "Denis Denis" by Blondie.

First LP was Led Zepplin II purchased circa '77

Not a bad choice even if I say so myself! :cool:

Richard was Eden Kane. Robin was the third brother who, as Hugh Cheddyk already mentioned, had a hit with "My Resistance Is Low" in the 70s...;)

Gawd, I'm showing my anorak. To be absolutely accurate, Robin's first forename was Clive, but he preferred his second, Robin.

Bought them both in Robertson's, Beckenham High Street, a few years before KMK opened.

'Slayed' was my first album too. Bought my copy in the record shop that was almost opposite Herne Hill station.

Single - Love to say that it was a Slade single. But I fear that it may have been one of 'Ernie (The Fastest Milkman In The West) by Benny Hill, 'Sing A Song Of Freedom' by Cliff Richard or 'My Ding-A-Ling' by Chuck Berry.

True-ish Tim. They lived in Norbury Avenue (the posh end of my old road - Melfort Road). And Derek Guyler lived just across and down from them.

But I'm sure it was Robin, not Richard.

Sorry but to be pedantic but it was Norbury Crescent - I knw becuase I lived a few doors away from him.

And Derek Guyler - what a top bloke :p

Sorry to be pedantic, but it was Deryck Guyler.

Having grown up in Norbury, I also remember him. I believed that he emigrated to Australia where he passed away some time ago...

Well I don't know about that but he used to walk past my house on his way to Sainsbury's - he always looked very smart in his blazer and that amazing moustache of his.

Me and my brother used to lean out the window and shout "Where's your washboard???" he used to smile give us a wave (but was probably thinking "what a couple of w*****s :grrr: ").

First single i think was Hello Goobye/I am the Walrus, but around that time was also Bridge Over troubled Water, Yesterme yesteryou yesterday and ABC by The jackson five.

First album as I recall was Sheer Heart Attack by Queen.

If I recall James Varcoe and I went to WH Smith in Croydon and he bought on 7" 20th Century Boy by T Rex and I bought something by Geordie!

Suffice it to say he peaked too soon whilst my tastes improved markedly.
