It was either a synthesizer album called "More Hot Butter" or a Monkees album sold on TV when their show was re-aired in the '70s.
What can I say, I don't think my parents owned an FM radio before 1975.

My first LP was King Crimson: Larks' Tongues in Aspic. That was in 1973. The last CDs I bought on 10/18/2017 was Robin Trower: Time and Emotion, KWS: Lay it on Down and Walter Trout: We're all in this together.

had a pile of 45's when I was a kid, and a craptastic stereo combo (8 track, phono, receiver) for a bit,
also had access to my parents albums (lots of jazz, as well as the top 40 of the time , now would be considered classic rock)
I recall buying the Michael Jackson album before Thriller, cannot remember what it was called,
my first paycheck at my first job was $90,
spent most of it on albums, Zappa's Shiek Yerbouti, Numan's Pleasure Principle, and IIRC Elvis Costello, Get Happy and Devo's first,
I'll have to look, but likely one for the wife that I cannot remember,
maybe a Cold Play....
Bought three the same day
AcDc Back in Black
Black Sabbath Live Evil

First album I think of as mine was my older sisters Pyromania LP by def leppard.
She only liked one song on it and I was maybe 10 years old playing it back to back non stop for hours.
In 86 I purchased my first cassette with my own money. On the same day I got appetite for destruction, animalize, and houses of the holy.
While zeppelin has gone on to be my favorite band, that appetite cassette got played so many times that it actually wore out and I had to buy the cd.

Not counting kids' music, it was Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours."
And in hindsight, it was a good choice.
The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.
ZZ TOP: Eliminator
Both were the first albums put out by the bands:
Crosby, Stills, & Nash
My girlfriend at the time had an older brother that got us into the "rock music".

Had a bunch of 45s before I bought my 1st album it was Lynyrd Skynyrd (Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd).
....Shredding lead both barrels
I remember asking for a receiver and turntable for my 12th or 13th birthday. Got an Onkyo receiver and a Technics linear tracking turntable. With the little bit of cash I also got, I purchased Back in Black.
I wish I had kept my collection and equipment.

If they don’t keep exercising their lips, he thought, their brains start working.
I mainly played 45s, but I believe this was my 1st album (1965), because no 45 was available.
All played on this
|I'm not laughing |
I'm pretty sure it was the soundtrack to "The Aristocats" from Disney.
I had some other "K-TEL" albums too.

First was American Beauty, Grateful Dead, still have it.
Everything Must Go, Steely Dan the latest.
For some reason, Islamists are the only racist, sexist, homophobic theocrats the media can't summon outrage against.
"There Is Only One Roy Orbison" in 1965.
Some days, it's just not worth the effort of chewing through the leather straps.

Boy, I don’t know anymore. I had a couple Barry Manilow records when I was pre teen but I don’t believe I bought those. Foreigner ‘Double Vision’ or REO Speedwagon ‘You Get what you Play For’ or Molly Hatchets ‘Flirting with Disaster’ are likely my first buys.
