Young people have a different mindset.They are not album oriented like us older folks are.They cherry pick songs from and an album and leave the rest.I need to have the whole album or I feel like I'm missing something...
Hi My Friend,
Yes, it us old timers who buy CD's, well it is in my case anyway.
As I have said before, I love a boxset, and use Fathers Day (last weekend), Birthday & Xmas money to fund this hobby, while downloading the rest from our Russian friends. My view is to buy from around Europe to get the best prices, especially with say something like "Original Album Classics", where you get five albums for about £12.50 or less delivered, unbeatable at £2.50 per album.
I have also picked up some cracking secondhand stuff from Amazon Sellers, Ebay etc.
Morow.com is my favourite internet radio station, because it specialises in Prog Rock, which is my thing.
I listen to albums, my kids listen to numerous individual tracks, at least I have taught them the Russian music sites, and they are not ripped off by itunes.
