UPDATE: I had another CD I had to RIP to my iTunes, and for a minute, I actually forgot how to do it!! Oh my goodness!! I actually forgot how to RIP a CD!! That’s how long it’s been!! LOLOLOLOL. A couple of weeks ago, I purchased an old school CD house mix (used, & nice ‘n’ cheap) from Amazon. The CD/album was 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 was, 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 streaming giants had it. This is one of the big problems we sometimes have with music licensing (especially with older music we know and love). I really do hope seasoned folks wake up, and start using services like Spotify, so we can relive our classics.
