What albums have you bought solely after hearing a song or single on the radio, a song from the album in a record store, etc.

I'll start:

Radio:

Led Zep IV after hearing Rock and Roll
CSNY Deja Vu after hearing Teach Your Children
Brain Salad Surgery after hearing Karn Evil 9 Part One (played by The Nightbird Alison Steele on WNEW FM 102.7).

Record Store:

David Bowie's Heroes after hearing Sense of Doubt
Talking Heads Remain In Light after hearing Once In A Lifetime

Radio:
Triumph - Just A Game after hearing Lay It On The Line
Cheap Trick - Live At Budokan after I Want You To Want Me
BOC - Some Enchanted Evening after Godzilla
Thin Lizzy - Jailbreak after Cowboy Song

I worked at a record store for 5 years, so there are many albums that were played in the store that I ended up buying. One that really stands out for me was:
Jane's Addiction - Nothing's Shocking

Radio:
B.O.C. - "She's as Beautiful as a Foot" (first album)
Thunderclap Newman - "Accidents" (Hollywood Dream)
Led Zeppelin - "Immigrant Song" (Led Zeppelin III)


Reverse:
The Sweet - "Ballroom Blitz" (went to the record shop to buy album. The store clerk [Dave Marsden - a local radio D.J. who hosted an FM show called "Kaleidoscope", which is where I heard most of the unusual music] talked me out of buying the album, saying if I liked the song, stick with the single.
