GUEST,No Fixed Abode Record store decline. (35) RE: Record store decline. 14 Feb 10

One of life's pleasures was going into my local record store on a Saturday morning and looking through the new arrivals section…If an album looked interesting I could then take the VINAL to the desk and ask them to put it through to a sound booth for a quick listen and if I liked I would buy

I guess eventually the door closes and there came a point where I had made up my mind what rocked my boat and what did not. So I became more selective and would only go to a record shop when I knew a new album was out by and artist I liked to buy the album.

Well now here is the thing… I love sitting with a cup of coffee and a set of headphones on listening to myspace artists or cdbaby samples…….a huge wealth of great music and I don't need to leave home!!

So just an Idea……but with a little searching trust me there is so much good/great new music out there and if I like it I can go and download it either free (if that is what the artist is offering) or buy the album as a download…………or even order a hard copy

So much easier and far more choice than a record shop could ever offer and an old git like me can once again take the blinkers off and once again discover music like I used to do..

Oh and one last thing ……….so much more convenient to have all the albums on a little thing called a ppod…or something like that…who would have thought all those years ago……
