It was 30 years ago today that the CD(compact disk) was born. On 1st October 1982, Sony launched the first ever CD Player(the CDP-101) and the first ever sony CDs were unleashed upon the masses in Japan. 6 months later, the USA got their hands on it.
I remember that in the early-to-mid 1990s, the first CD that I had was one that had the songs Perfect Skin(Lloyd Cole and The Commotions) and sowing the seeds of love(Tears for Fears). It came with the CD Player that we bought. During that time, I was fascinated by the whole concept of a CD Player. What fascinated me was the whole idea that you also put a song on repeat if you wanted. That being said, I remember that I did not look after my CDs. However, it was still a cool thing for me to just listen to different albums on CD in stead of listening to what was being played on the radio.
What about you? What was your first CD you bought?
