    Why would that be of any importance?

    Their first album had two sides...

    Their first album was 33 rpm...

    And the vinyl was black.

    Before Multitrack just about everything was recorded "live"

    Official or Bootleg?

    I seem to recall that the first Sex Pistols album was a live bootleg.

    I dont think bootlegs can count. I mean how many copies have to be given to friends before it counts?

    Bakc in the 70's record companies used the 'live bootleg' status to promote thier acts to Radio stations before their first official release. Nils Lofgren's Back it up on A&M created quite a buzz as did one from Tom Petty. Pressed up to look like a cheap knockoffs, they had "Not for resale" on the covers.

    What constitutes a first album?

    What constitutes live?

    Johnny Winter's Progressive Blues Experiment album was recorded live but there was no audience[/URL], and it was recorded for self promotion prior to his first Columbia release under a major contract, then was released by his promoter right after the first Columbia release causing confusion and reducing sales of the Columbia release. But is is recorded live, and not in a studio, but an empty building.

    The story.

    Sound clips.

    Tricky things, words. Starless and Bible Black, by King Crimson is mostly a live album (the sort of live that involves an audience). But it was edited to remove any trace of it being live, creating, in effect, a studio album.

    John Mayall plays John Mayall (1965).


    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    The same is true of the Grateful Dead's "Anthem Of The Sun" album. It wasn't their first though.
