My First CD - and I didn't even own a CD player...
Posted by John Lamb
My big sister's had a lot of influence over my music tastes when I was growing up and whatever music wafted out of her room soon got in my head. She soon got me in to a track by The Pale after Simon Mayo got behind the track on his breakfast show. I then asked my sister to get it me on cassette for my Birthday. The only problem was she couldn't find a copy anywhere and so bought me the CD version and got one of her friends to copy it on to tape for me. So the first CD I ever owned was The Pale's Dogs With No Tails. I'm sure you won't be surprised once you've heard the track that it had major success in Turkey after it was covered by a band over there.
