    Your 1st 78, LP, CD, EP and Single

    I find this topic very interesting.
    What was your first Elvis records in your collection?
    Your 1st 78, LP, CD, EP and Single.
    The younger fans wouldn't have 78's unless their parents give some to them.

    My first single was Suspicious Minds,
    1st LP album was Elvis sings Flaming Star,
    1st EP was Jailhouse Rock on orange label,
    1st CD was King Creole with extra tracks.

    Never bought a 78 recording of Elvis. My first LP was As Recorded at Madison Square Garden. Never been much of 45 buyer, but I have hand-me-down singles of Elvis, and also EPs.

    The first CD purchase was From Elvis Presley Boulevard.
