I’ve never given it much thought, but there are many young people today that will probably never own a CD, much less cassettes or vinyl. I don’t even know what to think about that. If it’s a good thing or a bad thing. Emily White for the All Songs Considered blog writes:
I wish I could say I miss album packaging and liner notes and rue the decline in album sales the digital world has caused. But the truth is, I’ve never supported physical music as a consumer. As monumental a role as musicians and albums have played in my life, I’ve never invested money in them aside from concert tickets and T-shirts.
