Friday Fun, Part Deux: First CD Edition

Keeping with the musical theme for today...

Over at Whatever, John Scalzi asks

Over at By The Way, I note today is the 25th anniversary of the commercial availability of the CD, and asked folks there, who are of an age to remember remember buying a first CD as something special, to recall what their first CD purchases were. I thought I'd ask it here, too.

So: What was the first CD you ever bought?

As I note over at Whatever, it was Tango: Zero Hour by Astor Piazzolla. I haven't listened to it in a while, so I'll have to give it a spin when I get home today. If you've never listened to Piazzolla before, you really owe it to yourself to give it a try. It's the most amazingly compelling music you can imagine.
