One of these days I'll get out all my Time-Life CDs and store-bought CDs andtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
rip the music from them.
I refuse to pay again for the media in another format.
When I do buy one in electronic format from somewhere like Amazon, it's
because it came out after the peak of the CD music era.
And when I can get it from Youtube in as good or better quality than
Amazon.com, I'll go with the free option.

just curious. How much do you pay per song or album you buy.
I think back to all the 45s, lps, cassettes, cds I've bought over the
years and eventually discarded -- thousands upon thousands of dollars
listened to for a few times and generally later only occasionally touched.
I didn't discover the beauty of services such as Amazon Music Unlimited
until I got a couple of Echo devices 3 or so yrs back.
I've listened to more music in the last couple of years than I did for the
previous 2-3 decades when, most of my listening, was via radio stations
first over the air and then internet.
I just don't see the necessity of owning music any longer given the
convenience of a service for around $100 a yr or so.
And I can call up whatever I want when I want it; use playlists;
structured requests, and so on.
I just wish someone had knocked me in the head telling me of these music
services yrs and yrs ago and getting me to pay attention.
