WHY I STILL BUY CDS


I may pop into Best Buy tomorrow…
They informed their music suppliers a few weeks back that they will stop selling CD’s and pull them from shelves on July 1.
They’ll continue to sell vinyl records in the turntable section due to long term commitment made with Best Buy Vendors…and the fact that vinyl album sales accounted for 14% of all physical album sales in 2017.
Digital musical sales overtook physical format sales in 2018 leaving us with the lousy fidelity of mp3’s and nothing to gift wrap for Christmas or a birthday…
I’ll stick with the full fidelity of a CD…
…and thank my musical stars Amazon and other online outlets still carry a full selection of those little 5″ discs..
