That's easy for me. I got into the Beatles then everything went from there. Naturally I started getting into the Stones and the Who after that. All this was going on when new wave hit and I got into Costello. And then I discovered the Pebbles collection, and so on...

First actual album: I'll go with the Beatles 1962-1966 and The Beatles 1967-1970

Yeah that's often the case. You might start off with an album you like, that encourages you to get more of the artist's material, but discover later there's one far better. Like my Rory Gallagher: I didn't particularly like Against the Grain; it wasn't till I got Photo Finish and Top Priority that I realised this would be more than a one-album deal.
