All of the comments about the look, feel, reading material, artwork of the CDs...roger all. Still valid. Just like I felt for years about vinyl LPs. One difference is, CD cases not as good for rolling on.
Then one day, I became a creature of convenience thru technology, which polluted my purist ways.
Also, when I went into the Navy in 1975 I left a few hundred LPs with my younger brother for safekeeping. When I came back for them 20 years later, he's like "what records?"
I stayed gone too long.
I'd sure like to know...so I could see if they want 300 of them in a box under a futon in one of my spare rooms. Everything backed up 3+ ways, disks just occupy space. I love Amazon mp3 app because of my immediate gratification need.
But I get your point. Maybe the drop in CD sales will be made up in Ineeditrightnows. Last 5 purchases anyway (mp3):
1. Antenna - ZZ Top
2. Kill Em All - Metallica
3. Mafia - Black Label Society
4. Live at Budakon - Ozzy
5. XXX - ZZ Top
Ya, I see the trend too. Walking, talking Tinnitus case.
I do agree about Bat Out Of Hell
Paradise By The Dashboard Lights ...
That's my idea of a love song.
I can't stand all of those drippy love songs.
I still buys CD's. I download them onto my mp3 player and if something happens to it and/or my computer I still have my tunes. But then music is more of a religion for me and everyday is sabbath. :)
When it comes to music I'm not so much worried about the cost (shrugs) I love what I love and ZZ Top I always have!
Pappy50 says: buy CD's - take them home and play them , read all the liner notes. it's an experience or maybe I'm getting OLD SCHOOL. not a bad thing these days.
way to many CD's to count - maybe 500 or more as well as LOTS of Vinyl.
own every ZZ TOP CD as well as most of the vinyl that has been offered.
Cheers from the Midwest
Michael Bublé- To Be Loved (Say Nothing. He's not that bad)
ZZ Top Complete Studio Albums 1970-1990
Queen- Sheer heart Attack
Michael Bublé-Crazy Love (Hollywood Edition)
Meat Loaf- Bat Out Of Hell
Don't Hate My Music Taste! I Likes What I Likes.... Deal With It!
With any group, if the majority of the songs are good, I'll buy the CD.
I still buy CD's. there's something about owning the case too, the thought that has went into the art work and design of it all, being able to read the linear notes. for me its all part of the listening experience. i used to work in a music shop, so maybe i,m biased :)
last 5 cd's were:
Rolling stones: grrr
Beach Boys: thats why god made the radio
Emily Smith: to long away
Teenage Fanclub: Shadows
I ordered my Owner the last ZZTop CD, he was a little disappointed. My kids do the downloading of music and play it from their phones. I am NOT that technical savvy so CD'S for me and Owner.
I buy far too many of the dang things for my own good. I got an Eastern Electric DAC and the cds have never sounded better. Downloads are fine, but I prefer the cds as they are usually cheaper than a download when you gettem second hand.
La Futura was the second last one I bought, the one(order) before that was 3 of the Rory Gallagher remasters, before that the big box set of Larks Tongue in Aspic by King Crimson(the big BIG box set version). Last night I ordered up a spot of Holger Czukay, just for a change.
Yep, I buy far too many of them ............:-(
La Futura is outstanding, best thing they have done in decades.
