I've been scratching my head like crazy because my first album was bought about 50 years ago, it was either Yardbirds For Your Love, or Bob Dylan Times are a Changin. I bought those over a two month period in 1966 because I had to save my allowance, but which was first I just can't recall, I was 13 at the time. Obviously I no longer have those since they wore out a long time ago after being played a 25 or so times on a cheap turntable that had no counter balance weighted tonearm which would literally carve into a record over a short period of time, so the sound would get horrid thus to the trash they went. Those two albums I bought because they were on sale for $1 each!

1979 Stiff Little Fingers-Inflammable Material.I was 11.
A few months earlier in 1978 my older Cousin,who was into Thin Lizzy/Rush etc used to buy records every Friday when he got paid.One Friday he brought home a few singles and amongst them was Suspect Device.We listened to it,flipped it over and as soon as I heard the B-side Wasted Life I just knew.Made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.When it finished he just said"that was crap". I asked if I could have it and he said yes.A couple of months he brought home Alternative Ulster and just said "bought you this by that crap band".
I later bought the Album with my paper round money and almost 40 years on it's still my favourite album and I listen to it at least once a month.
It still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end.

The Clash "London Burning", and The Police "Synchronicity" at the same time which I remember being a lot of saved quarters for a ten year old.
