A bit related to the HMV news I wonder how much a site of music obsessives spends on music these days. I see people counting down their top 30 physical re-releases and top 50 new ones of the year and wonder of they bought them all or have been listening on Spotify or Apple Music or whatever. I am feeling a little guilty about the amount I spend and a New Year’s Resolution to spend (much) less in 2018 did not last long.
I need to stop going to certain music sites and jumping on perceived “bargains” of stuff I don’t really want or need. Exhibit A: Roxy Music Special Deluxe Edition. I have also started sorting through my vinyl in order to sell a large part of it.
So my New Year’s resolution, buy nothing that I have already, a shiny vinyl re-release, a box set of demos and average live stuff I will listen to once.
