Nirvana - Nevermind I bought a few days after it was released, from Virgin Megastore in Birmingham. It was £5:29. I was a bit worried reading the sleeve that the spelling of, erm Kurdt?, had been changed to Kurt, initial thought it was a record label gimmick to appear less Commie or something. Also the record looked like a major label release, fair enough as it was I guess. Took it to a mates girlfriends house and 4 of us listened to side 1, practically in silence. Then I put the needle back to the start again, it was so good we didn’t go straight to side 2.
Oasis - Definitely Maybe I bought this with my wages from the record shop I’d just started working at, first week of release (again on vinyl). It hasn’t aged that well but back then I really loved the wall of sound they were making. Got it for cost price, which was about £8.
Alanis Morrissette - Jagged Little Pill I mentioned to the Warners Brothers rep that it was selling well after initially not doing so and that the opening single was good. He left me a CD album of it for free.
The Strokes - Is This It I picked up the early singles, again on vinyl, but I have never owned this album.
