Okay, I'll admit that I'm getting old. I came to the realization when I started to shake my head in disgust at how other drivers were driving. I really like my music and over the years I've accumulated a small CD collection [200-300] and every so often I get the desire to add an odd album to the collection. For example, I'm looking for the Broken Bells self titled album which is a fairly recent release. No luck. I went to five different stores in the last few days.
I'm not big on digital music sales. I'd rather have the album in my hands. A computer or device crapping out on you and you've got a headache. Plus, if it's not in your possession, it's not really yours. I can see a time when an album becomes politically incorrect, and deleted from the cloud.
The first stereo that I had in my room was my Dad's old 8-track player. I was a hipster, at the age of 14, before it was popular! Jim Croce and Chicago are two of the big 8 track tapes that I can remember. From 8 tracks, I went straight into cassettes, then CDs. I really don't relish the idea of accumulating/replacing my music collection.
What are some of your fond music memories?
