  • If people want to blow their money on crap sounding music fair play to them.

    At least unlike the last panic buying sessions, I can still get out and about and don't have a dirty backside.

    I have to admit the sound quality would have to be as good as CD's for me to buy them. I do miss the record sleeves on vinyls though. I used to buy the odd 12" single too and some of these vinyls came in shapes or colours.

    Ohhh lemondrops69 you have made me feel old  :D Yes your nan is right. At times some artists release a special addition CD and will would have a few extra songs on it, sometimes recorded live while performing at a concert. 

    Vinyls were before CD's.  Ask your nan what people had to do with a tape and pencil lol

    Christmas presents perhaps?

    My sainsburys this week was out of pasta.  I curiously asked if there was delivery issues.  Nope - it was panic buyers buying 10 bags each.  :angry:

    If not vinyl or CD, then how does one own music to listen for pleasure?

    Obviously, nothing can really beat the pure sound of the family sitting around the pianoforte of an evening and bringing vibrant life to sheet music.
