I don’t buy that either.

CD-R means "rewriteable" as in the disc can be copied over, much like a cassette back in the day. I know Amazon is using the CD-R discs for their MOD "made on demand" titles. I have an Overkill and a Chastain (2on1) and they sound fine; but the packaging sucks.

The weird thing about cassettes were that with vinyl and cd you could skip right to the track you wanted, however, with tapes you had to fast forward to it and even then you had to make sure you pressed stop just when the song started.

IIRC, a few of the high end tape decks back in the day could skip to the next song and I believe one of my Walkman's did it too.

CD-R can only be written once. The R stands for Recordable. Data gets burnt to the disc.

A CD-RW is a rewritable. You can write over and over. Also more expensive.

My bad. Thanks, Lari. Smile

For me personally, the biggest hit was owning 2 vehicles that no longer have CD players in them.

At home and at work, I listened to music through a computer, mostly MP3’s ripped from my collection and occasionally streaming on Spotify. The CD player in my car was the last place I actually played a cd. When that option went away, it really made me take a good hard look and think do I need to buy this cd to rip it once on the computer then shelve it indefinitely?

Now nearly 4 months into the new year and I’ve only made 5 purchases. Old habits die hard so I still see myself buying a physical copy now and then, but buying like the old days is done.

It is a bad year for music shopping. I used to buy much more, but given the current circumstances, have reduced my purchases to the minimum.

I still managed to buy the new Demons & Wizzards and Ozzy cds online this evening.

I have probably bought about the same number of records as CD's so far this year. And a few cassettes too. Ha ha. I have kind of gone off the want list and been picking up things that are either a good deal or something that strikes my fancy at that moment. With almost all of the record stores being closed (I think the one small local I frequent may be forced to shut down this week) due to the virus, I think my purchases are going to have to be online for the next few weeks/ months at least. I know the Walmarts are staying open cuz of the groceries, but there are only a few albums there that I would plunk down the money for, namely a couple of Metallica and a couple of Kiss releases. The CD section is pretty non existent. And what is there is basically pop and country that doesn't interest me in the least or greatest hits stuff that I either already own or don't want.
