It always saddens me that the era of actually looking through and holding music in the form of CDs (and before that, cassettes, 8-tracks, vinyl albums and 45s and 78s) is fast approaching its end thanks to downloading. It just "ain't" going to be the same.
Everytime I go into a store selling CDs, there are fewer each time. Stores like Wal-Mart, K-Mart and Best Buy just don't much carry them anymore.
However, last Tuesday, I had to smile. After going to the Springfield, Illinois, Barnes and Noble and seeing they only had about 50 CDs for sale, I remembered there was a Best Buy nearby and the last time I was there for a hour an in my glory. Lots and lots of aisles of CDs.
I ended up buying four CDs, including greatest hits by Leon Russell and the Shangri-Las. Ended up playing the Shangri-Las most of the way home. If ever there has been a group of girls who have suffered so much emotional boy problems than this group, I'd sure like to know who they were. I figured Liz would really like the album; she did.
