I would be interested to know what were the first record(s) you bought and when. Leave a message in the comments section, I think it could make interesting reading.
You don't want to know the first record I bought - it was in the days before I discovered wonderful soul music. But I can tell you that the first 12" single I bought was "Hollywood" by Chaka Khan & Rufus, prior to that I had bought 7" singles - remember those??? Now of course I have music on both vinyl and CD and (as I try to keep up with the modern technology) downloads.
