“ I was struggling to think of a suitable present for my sister's 50th birthday ... „more and my wife had the inspired idea to check what was number 1 when she was born - turned out to be the classic double A side Eleanor Rigby/ Yellow Submarine. I came across myfirstrecord on a google search for vinyl framing services and it seemed to fit the bill, especially with it's links to Australia (my sister lives in Perth). Simon was really helpful and what I liked was that he was obviously a real music fan himself. He took time to understand what I wanted and although I'd left it a bit late, he ensured that the record was sourced, framed and despatched in time to arrive for the big day. A great personal service - many thanks Simon! „

Welcome to My First Record
In recent years, vinyl has taken on a vintage status and a mystique, especially in the era of the "invisible" music download. The vinyl record is iconic, whether you grew up with it or have discovered the magic of vinyl through Mum & Dad’s record collection. Vinyl had a unique life and personality of its own, tactile with a brightly coloured label, and that distinctive plastic aroma. From the 1950s through to the 1990s, vinyl records sound tracked and chronicled our lives............
We can all remember our first single - going to the record shop, rushing home and playing it at 45RPM on the dansette record player over and over again, before finally flipping it over to be disappointed by the inferior B side!!
Preserve those memories with favourite songs framed & mounted either as vinyl records or CDs. You can add an engraved plaque to create a unique & unusual personalised gift.
A framed vinyl record or CD makes an ideal personalised present for a special celebration / special occasion - Wedding ( Bride & Groom’s First Dance Song ), Engagement ( Your Song ), House Warming, 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th Birthday ( How about the No1 song on the day of birth? ), Silver, Ruby or Golden Wedding Anniversary, Father’s or Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day ( Favourite Song )

My interest and love of vinyl developed from the age of five in 1967, when I became fascinated by my parent’s record collection and my own Thomas the Tank Engine stories on vinyl singles, all magically brought to life on the dansette record player.
In 2010, I launched this website, in order to help others celebrate the influence, magic and pleasure that vinyl records and CDs have brought you, your family and friends over the years. MyFirstRecord offers you the opportunity to immortalise a favourite song as the Perfect Personalised Present for those special gifting occasions.
