Today the compact disc turns 29. The first CD was manufactured at a Philips factory in Germany on August 17, 1982. In case it comes up, the first one to roll off the assembly line was The Visitors by ABBA.

What was your first CD? (And do you remember the last CD you purchased?) I wonder if anyone's first CD was The Visitors by ABBA.
