Loc: the ancient forests of MiddleE...
I am happy to keep playing my vinyls.<br>Don't want to know about iTMS<br>Don't want know about RIAA<br>More interested in ARIA<br>Plenty ACCA DACCA here mate.<br>If everything was for sale online, what would happen to your local shopping centre?<br><br><br>but where will we be when the future comes?
I have Back In Black, Highway To Hell & Let There Be Rock on vinyl. Like most of my old vinyl I haven't bought the CDs to replace them. Instead I'll check out alt.binaries.sounds.mp3.classic-rock and see if it's there. I have digital versions of 90% of my vinyl that I aquired that way. The audiophiles that post there usually encode at bitrates of 256-320k which ain't too bad for mp3s.<br><br>In the case of bands like Pink Floyd, Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Beatles, etc. I have had vinyl, cassette and even 8-Tracks of their stuff. Which meant paying for it 2 - 3 times. So IMO the bands AND the RIAA have made their money off of me already. <br><br>However, I have downloaded a few classic rock/metal albums from iTMS that I couldn't find on Usenet. So again I ended up paying twice for it. Most recently: The Band (Remastered) and Judas Priest - Hell Bent For Leather. My iTMS "Purchased" music library is over 500 songs, so they've made a few bucks off of me too.<br><br>
