What are the most recent album or two that we bought and how do we buy music now? Streaming, CDs, download, vinyl? December 3, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
The other week there was a great outline from people of the first album they bought (by the way just as an aside did people tend to buy one or two albums at a go? I know I did but again that was probably a function of buying them for the most part second hand).
That got me thinking. What are the most recent two or three albums people have bought? And in what format, CD, vinyl, downloads, or is ‘buying’ an album for some now akin to foraging for berries and it’s all streaming? I’ve got to admit to a proprietorial attitude to music – I don’t like corporations ‘owning’ it, I like having my own. In part because I don’t trust corporation but also the thing about music was that it was never just about music. It was about album art, or a knowledge of the groups, or all the interactions with friends listening to music (and how often did we get this line ‘wait, this is the good bit!’?).
