I was in St. Louis last week for a couple of days....now, St Louis has a couple of the best record stores that I've ever seen. I get a woodrow just thinking about these places....
Well, I've got a guy with me and he has no choice but to tag along....and, well, I knew that different generations do things differently but it really hadn't been put to me so poignantly before.
To me, there is NOTHING better than flipping through LP bins....not like a thrift...but, like a record store, sorted. Checking out the covers, liner notes etc... I mean, if you like music, how cool is that...right? This guy, and he's mid-20's...you'd think he was on the frigging moon. Totally foreign concept.
Now, I'm not saying that iTunes and downloading is the end of the world.....but, it HAS ruined the music shopping experience. What a shame!
