Theres plenty of dvd, blu ray and game topics, and theres plenty of topics about what your favourite bands are and what youre listening to but I couldnt find one like this.
Now I know not many people buy music in physical form these days but for those that do, lets hear what youve been buying be it vinyl, cd or whatever. Some of us still like to have a growing music collection thats tangible and infront of them and some of us still get excited when an album has great artwork or comes with something different.
I always look forward to Ed Banger Records releases because they often have something special about them. Uffies album (Sex, Dreams & Denim Jeans) came in a little denim sleeve designed to look like a back pocket of a pair of jeans. Justice's album Cross opened up into a big (you guessed it) cross shape. DJ Mehdi's compilation Red, Black & Blue came with a nice little booklet in which he'd written little notes about each song he'd chosen which was nice to read.
People say you should never judge a book by its cover but sometimes I judge a CD by its cover(not often but I have done it) and i'll pick it up purely because of its cover and buy it on a whim.
I probably spend about £100 on CD's a month, wether that be in a store like HMV or at a market or charity shop.
Anyway today ive just bought:
My Morning Jacket - Circuital
SebastiAn - Total
Led Zeppelin - Mothership (Cant believe I didnt own a Led Zep until now, shameful)
Friendly Fires - Pala
Friendly Fires - Bugged Out! presents Suck My Deck
Rough Trade - Counter Culture 10
Kitsune Maison 11
Come on guys there must be some of you on here who has a collection and not just digital data on a computer and I wanna hear about it?
