A couple of weeks ago, I purchased an old school CD mix (used) from Amazon. The CD/album is basically out of print. I finally gotten around to ripping it in to my iTunes. Wow, I’d never thought I would feel this way but, when I popped my CD in to my computer, it felt like the equivalent of putting a record on my turntable. I’ve been downloading my music for so long, that ripping my CD felt so damn strange! Ripping music feels so ancient now it’s not even funny. LOL. But you know what? I got the music I was looking for and that’s all that matters really.
The nice part is, as a collector of rare and classic music, it was really a joy to be able to purchase the CD from a vendor, when none of the internet music giants have it. This is one of the big problems we have with music licensing.
