Re: The first single you purchased
I bought many more albums than I ever did singles, but the first single might have been the 45
of Led Zeppelin's "The Immigrant Song" with "Hey, Hey, What Can I Do" as the B-side. About 1971 or '72, this.
"There were long green couches on the first floor that smelled like failure and
skin flakes, and no one would nap on them for fear of catching salmonella."
