My First Record

Thursday, September 10, 2009

Meg contributed a short article for the September issue of Active 8 magazine on her memories of buying her very first record.

For details of Active 8: www.active8magazine.co.uk


My first pop memories are of the Beatles, but I was too young to buy records. Shortly after I became a Monkees fan which was more to do with me enjoying the comedy TV programmes. Much later I came to appreciate their music and now have CDs of their hits.


Being a teenage girl in the 1970s meant worshipping one male pop star above all others. Most of my friends were David Cassidy or Donny Osmond fans. Not an admirer of either, I chose Gilbert O’Sullivan (once he had lost his flat cap look). Consequently the first record I bought was his hit “Get down”.


A quick and dusty ferret around our spare room confirmed I still have it, although it must be 30 years since I listened to it. There were many other singles bought at the same time often second hand from a stall in Castle Market.


I know that the general view is that the 70s was not a good decade for music. However it was great fun, with bands that were larger than life. Whether it was Sweet or Slade, they were great to dance to at my local youth club. Unlike some of my friends I was never a great fan of the Bay City Rollers all that tartan and weird haircuts but there were some good tunes.


If, like me, you were a teenager then I heartily recommend the recently produced CDs. published by Jacky magazine. As I happily sing along to those 70s hits I’m transported back to my teenage years and those long hot summers.
