Stealing Your Parent's Albums

I thought it would be neat to hear people's tales of listening to albums with thier parents when they were younger or of stealing your parent's albums and listening to them alone in your room.

Reminisce.

Sgt Peppers for the first time on Vinyl

The first time I ever heard A Day In The Life was listening on my dad's old headphones (they were huge)

I never really stole any of my parents' albums, but I still have most of my Grandad's cassettes of The Shadows.

I don't think there was any "stealing". especially if the album is by Trini Lopez

\showing my age, or rather my parents' age

I grew up on Bryan Adams' Wakin up the Neighbors, The Bob Seger Collection and a healthy mix of Jimmy Barnes and Cold Chisel.

There was no Wiggles for me, oh no. It was Khe Sahn or nothing.

It was the other way around in my family. My sister's Nirvana tapes kept migrating from her car to mom's And then mom got into Beck, and it was just all downhill from there. Sometimes I think my mom is cooler than me

I was 11, I think, and was browsing my parents' CD collection, which was mostly classical stuff.

I stumbled on The Best of Elvis Costello and the Attractions and listened to it for weeks. It took me months to move beyond a couple of songs, but each new track was like a puzzle which required weeks to find the hook.

I guess I just didn't have a lot of exposure to popular music back then. New Amsterdam still hearkens back to that feeling of discovery.

I was really young, and I used to spend many a night listening to my dad's album collection. Let It Bleed by the Stones was the first one I really remember. I also remember being fascinated by the Fleetwood Mac album covers and loving Stevie Nicks' voice.

When I found out a few years ago that he got rid of all of them I was extremely dissappointed. I would have liked to have inherited them all.

The Beatles 1963-1966 - The Red Album
The Beatles 1967-1970 - The Blue Album

Those two taught me all i needed to know about good music when i was growing up.

Cheers dad

My mom had fabulous taste in music, so I was always borrowing her records when I was young. The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, The Doors, Bob Dylan, etc.

I remember being ten years old and stealing all of my dad's Pink Floyd / Queen cassettes while he was at work. I don't know why, but I was terribly embarrassed to be listening to them at the time. I was terrifed that he (or anyone else, for that matter) would find out that I was listening to his tapes. At that age, everyone else was listening to Aqua and all that, so I thought I was being abnormal. Then I got older and realised my father's musical taste wasn't all that un-cool after all.

I can still vividly remember doing tennis racquet guitar solos to 'Killer Queen' and 'Another Brick In The Wall.' I used to close my door, stand in front of my mirror and pretend I was playing along to the songs.

The Wall with my dad when I was 9 or 10...greatest music memory either...I definitely used to listen to that album with him all the time. I forgot how much I loved it until last Friday when I watched The Wall again...it's been so long since i heard the album, and now I NEED to buy it. It was the first real full album I can ever really remember falling in love with, and knowing the lyrics to every song on. I'm positive it also has EVERYTHING to do with why I will always love music from that era more than anything else that's on the radio/has ever been on the radio, in all the times I was growing up or today. Hearing it again for the first time in nearly ten years last Friday was one of the greatest musical experiences of my life.

But the only album of his I've ever made off with without his knowing was a Gordon Lightfoot Greatest Hits CD
