SPB: What was your first tape, record, or CD (as applicable)?
Axel: Best of The Beatles 67-70 (the blue double album) I was about 9 and growing up in a tiny town in Germany where there wasn't a record shop, but the appliance store had a shelf with about 20 albums and that was one of them. My friend bought the 62-66 equivalent (the red double album), so we were forever arguing which is better. I still think I won, just on the strength of the mad psychedelic bangers on my one – “I Am The Walrus” and “Strawberry Fields” blew my little mind!
Sha: It's a Small World and Elton John Crocodile Rock records from my mom ;) First cd probably U2 or The Cure...
