    To begin with I like hard music and once I saw an Oprah's show with L.M.Presley. The next day I said to my classmate that Lisa is so cool and her father is a "dad of rnr".. In a week or too I had a birthday anjd she presented me a dvd with elvis' 1968 comeback... That is one of the most wonderful and important days of my life... That was ahuge surprise and the meaning of it I've understood only after playing it...
    Thanks for asking

    The first album I remeber listening to was my mother's copy of Moody Blue. "Way Down" is the song I remember playing. Also listened to her copy of Promised Land on 8-track.

    A couple of cheapie greatest hits on cassette were next, but the first proper album I remember buying for myself was As Recorded at Madison Square Garden.

    Some of my most vivid memories are of listening to his music for the first time. Thanks, Elvis.

    My first album was the box set from Candelite Music called "The Elvis Presley Story". It was a great introduction. The first album I heard was the TV album "Elvis" from Brookville Records. My grandmother owned it and played it for me all the time. Then I got "GI Blues" for Christmas and my record collection was off and running.

    That was 1977. It's hard to believe I've been a fan for almost 30yrs!!!

    First Album, I was little, Mum bought "Blue Hawaii" which was for a special family occasion. A pivotal occasion.

    Lovely memories, dancing with my cousins, we were all excited, danced to the whole album, several times, a wonderful night. The moment stood out! lol

    I kinda decided the album was mine, lol (although Mum still has it grrrrrrr, lol).

    I only had three albums, Elvis' was one of them.

    First Elvis records I ever had were Moody Blue, Christmas Album and Les 40 plus grands succ?s. Got 'em a few months after Elvis died.
    Later on I bought many LPs but sadly since I was young I used to cut the pictures on the covers and hang them on my wall so I ended up having many LPs without any covers.

    My first record was the On Stage album in 1970, they were playing it at our local Woolworth's store, and I loved it, I was 11 years old at the time. Next I purchased Elvis From Memphis, not a bad way to start a collection with these two brilliant lp's! It took me about 6 months before I learned that Elvis had been around since 1955, I thought he had just come on the scene in 1968.

    Gee, too long ago to remember the exact year. I had to be in about the 4th or 5th grade...in the 50's. First album was Elvis' first album....the one with ELVIS PRESLEY name in pink and green. Played on a kids record player over and over and over. No wonder my parents were ready to choke both Elvis and me.

    Gawd..........I just went back and read everyone's replies......suddenly I am feeling like I was born 10,000 years ago. LOL

    My first was Aloha From Hawaii and Madison Square Garden. I became a fan while listening to Elvis' How great thou art album and the 45 Its only love which both belonged to my aunt. Some of my warmest childhood memories. Elvis would be amazed with the ages of some of his new fans.

    My first record was a three record box called "The Best Of Elvis Presley" and was released in Germany by a label called "World Trade". The records contained only songs from 1954-1957 and the same label released a lot of albums that contained the same few songs. But anyway, my favorites where "All Shook Up" and "Too Much" (these are still two of my favorite songs by the way) and I played them over and over. The sound quality was pretty bad and even the quality of the vinyl was poor, but at the time (I was just eight years old) it was fine to me and it was the beginning of my collection. So: Praise to World Trade Records!

    I stole my first Elvis record. I was about 9. It was the 'Now or Never'/'Make Me Know It' 45, and it belonged to my mum. I found it in her record collection, played it and couldn't get enough, so decided I was going to keep it! LOL!!!

    I still have it!!!
