Where I Get My Music


23. Dez. 2005, 7:32

First off, I'm not your normal Audioscrobbler, since, I play hardly any MP3 (or the like). I'm an audiophile and, thus, don't think the quality of most compressed digital formats is good enough to own. I do plan to dive into a loss-less compression format, but am yet to equip myself with sufficient storage to support my ambitions ... within the next few months, I hope.

So, 99.5% of the music I get is on CD or vinyl (just a few). I get most CDs on-line at Amazon Marketplace and eBay/GEMM, when it comes to rarities. When I want that personal touch, and'm feeling rich, I'll go to my local record shop ...

... Rough Trade, Talbot Rd (image from Wikimedia.org), or a nearby specialist shop Spin City (was 374 Edgware Rd, London W2 1EB - now sadly closed).

Outside this, I buy CDs at charity shops and gigs.

    Rough Trade shop?! That's wicked. There's a pretty cool area of Manchester where there's a load of record shops, Vinyl Exchange is the one where I spend the most money. A shit load of new/second hand cds, vinyl, everything really, and load's of it's really cheap. Amazon marketplace and ebay are good too, ebay especially.
