Also I do not get buying CDs at this point, much less wanting to keep one in mint condition.
It's more for sentimental value than anything else. CDs are a part of musical history and were pretty much the only option when I started buying music. I own three copies of The Moon and Antarctica; one that is too scratched to listen to, one that I listen to, and one still in the wrapper. It is my favourite album released after the year I was born and it means a lot to me.
I had no idea either! I went to this record store when I was going through Columbia the other day, and stopped at my favorite record store there and stumbled upon it. Apparently it just got released a couple months ago, even though it's a recording from 2001.
1. Velvety (instrumental) 2. I Love Your Brain 3. Men in Black 4. The Black Rider 5. Mr. Grieves 6. Gouge Away 7. John The Revelator 8. Hermaphroditos Is My Name 9. Six Sixty-Six 10. Monkey Gone to Heaven 11. So Hard to Make Things Out 12. Llano Del Rio 13. The Holiday Song 14. I Will Run After You 15. Bullet 16. Nimrod's Son 17. You're Such A Wire 18. Where Is My Mind? 19. Oddball 20. Manta Ray
On top of my favorite Frank Black b-side, it also has my favorite Pixies' b-side, "Dancing the Manta Ray," though it is labeled on the record as "Manta Ray," which is a different Pixies' b-side entirely (that I also love). This shit's confusing.
Above & Beyond - Group Tharapy (CD) Above & Beyond - Anjunabeats Volume 9 (MP3) Infected Mushroom - Army Of Mushrooms (MP3) Marilyn Manson - Born Villian (CD)
I buy mostly MP3 these days because I live in middle of nowhere, and can't really find the music I want near by. I don't always have the patience for snail mail. When I buy CD's, I rip them right away, and put the music on a digital device or jump drive. The cloud storage is making MP3 albums nicer to buy now, because I can always access my music from anywhere.
