B. 1974

I grew up with my dad listening to what is now called a "classic rock" station, so I was hearing the good stuff at an early age. 
Somewhere between the ages of 10-12 and dad came home from a garage sale with a case of cassettes, all but one were garbage. The one that I kept, ie my first cassette that I owned:

I heard the opening riff of Whole Lotta Love and I was hooked.

Re: First few albums/cassettes you owned?

My very first album was Led Zeppelin's first.  I don't remember for sure after that.  May have been The Beatles' white album.  Led Zeppelin II.  Grand Funk Live.  Sergant Pepper's.  Tommy. 

All vinyl.

Re: First few albums/cassettes you owned?

My very first cassette was Fair Warning, by Van Halen. My first vinyl was Number of the Beast, by Iron Maiden. It's a blur after that. The thing was, my old brother had a dual-cassette boom box, so he used to buy stuff and I used to buy blank tapes and record his stuff. I remember he had the Queensryche EP before anyone had heard of them, so I followed up by purchasing The Warning on vinyl when it came out. The tables turned once I got my paper route, because my obsession with music was much greater than his, so soon he was taping my stuff as I introduced him to Metallica, Mercyful Fate, and many others. I was buying Metal Edge magazine and learning about all the cool stuff.
