    Your memory must be better than mine (either that or you’re just picking old songs out of the nether regions of your brain), so I can’t be certain about this.

    First one was either a Stones single (no idea which one) or something by Jim Reeves (probably Distant Drums)

    If you want anything more definitive from me , you’ll have to wait until technology develops a full brain download and read capability.

      No nether regions in my brain Way………all up to date and fully functioning……..maybe you should get yourself tested……lol……or perhaps these are not the sort of trivialities that you store in your brain..xxx

    One Star, only one? No. First I bought was Love Letters in the sand by Pat Boone, Lonly Boy by Paul Anka, Jailhouse Rock by Elvis, Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino and Donna by Frankie Avalon. Buddy Holly with Peggy Sue came in between.
    And for the night Dean Martin with; Send me the pillow that you dream on.

    Those were the days. No Dusty Springfield came later. xxxback

      Sorry Star I forget to mention those records came out of a second hand and I paid less than a 3$for them. So that was a good bargain.xxxback

    Star, I think it was a Paul Anka record not sure. I still have all of them and also my husbands 45 records in a 45 record holder . I wish I still had my 45 record player. 🙂

    I THINK it was Jackie Dennis in the early 60’s? I was at convent school……he was a small, spiky haired, bekilted boy with a soft Scottish accent. He was the first singer I saw live….my Mum took me. Well……that happened in those days! I thought he was wonderful!

    When our first record player arrived we had one single. Tears of a clown.
    The first one I ever bought was Rockin Robin by the Jackson 5. My friends sister worked at boots and got discount so it only cost me 10p. Memories. xxx
