Quoted from xsvtoys:
Pink Floyd got my money multiple times for the same music. I've seen video of David Gilmour at his house so I think he did OK . I bought the LP. I bought the CD. Now I don't have either, just digital versions of those songs floating around as 1s and 0s. Part of me wishes I kept the physical album and CD just for the coolness effect. But on the other hand, sometimes I get tired of "stuff" piled up all over the place, and I got rid of it all. I think I am still a pretty good fan. Been listening to that for 45 years.
150 or so record albums and who knows how many CDs are long gone. Those used CDs are worth next to nothing for the most part, but the LPs are probably worth a little bit with the resurgence. I had all that good 70s stuff on LP - Led Zep, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, and dozens of Jimi Hendrix albums, some never or rarely played. The ironic thing is I still have my original Pioneer turntable from the 70s. I do use it once in a great while to digitize some rare thing on an LP that can't be acquired digitally.
I have about 800 CDs somewhere. Clutter. They all get opened only to be ripped to my computer and put out of sight.Vinyl is a pain in the butt. Props to the people that enjoy it, but I'd rather not have my music collection take up a few tons. I don't want to touch it, dust it, adjust it. I want to listen to it.
I'm annoyed by the "only a true fan" mentality. It's a very binary approach.
