Do You Still Listen To Albums?

ThinkStock

It’s funny how things that we grew up with are suddenly cool again.  Many Millennials have a keen interest in listening to music on vinyl, even though there are plenty of recordings available on CD and online.  Many record shops, which for many years replaced their album bins with CDs, are back to carrying vinyl again.

Tomorrow is Record Store Day, an opportunity for music lovers to browse through albums and purchase some new sounds or an old treasure.

Stores around the country are encouraged to participate.  It’s a way of getting people into the shops in a time when so many are purchasing online.  Some stores are offering previously unreleased material from David Bowie, as a special Record Store Day celebration.   And some are selling a special Prince picture disc with “Little Red Corvette” and “1999.”

I still enjoy flipping through stacks of CDs, looking to see if I can add to my collection. Though I’ll eventually put the music onto my devices, I’m a fan of the actual original CDs with their jewelcases and liner notes.

What about  you?  Do you still buy CDs?  Or do you do most of your listening online or on the radio?

By the way, if you’d like to visit some of the places participating in Record Store Day, here are the locations:
