being a huge vinyl collector and have been all my life,you can understand why I would and do spend my time and money in Indie stores and not the ''box store''.I can also understand why people shop online for many reason.I grew up during the 70's and 80's when Vinyl ,Cassetts and 8- tracks were the thing to have.Its all about the Nostalga of walking into a store and smelling the Vinyl,walking by every bin,thumbing threw records,looking at the cover art,starting a conversation with some one at the counter about a particular record,that and everything else about an Inde record store,you just dont get by buying online.....
AMEN BROTHA !!!!! I do the same except CD's and I like finding "gems or perfectly good used ones cheap" and it often takes a little searchin
I do order online occasionally ...cmdistro has good deals and they've done me justice
