Who: Rumiñahui (Specifically from one of the band members who was a Busker. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buskers))
CD: Andean Visions
Where:Pearl Street Mall; (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pearl_Street_Mall) Boulder, Colorado
When: This Summer in August(2007).

This summer in Boulder, Colorado on Pearl Street Mall my wife & I were enchanted by this Busker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buskers) from Peru, he was like a one man band of traditional instrumental music of the Andes. He was also selling CD's and handmade Jewelry.

To capture the moment and enjoy this wonderful music we bought a CD.

This was the last Music CD I can remember buying.

What was the last music CD you bought? When and Where did you buy it?

none. I've never bought a CD. I just listen to the CDs my mom bought years ago(I'm 14.) I don't like much modern music
Otherwise I just listen to the radio

Don't usually buy many CD's, but I've been buying quite a few lately. I started boycotting mp3, because the format is the death of good sound. So now I either download in flac format or buy CD's.

The last CD: Jazz Ballads by Louis Armstrong and Jack Teagarden.

...well, it is not my fault that there is anything more recent that is worth buying!

I actually downloaded the Radio Head thing - paid them 1p, which translated into about $1 thanks to a couple of charges and after listening to it, I think that it was about worth that much, 1p that is, not $1. I guess this is a CD that I won't buy.

That's the good stuff, buying real music from a musician. :)

Me... hm, I think the latest CDs I bought were a Living Stereo SACD (Reiner cond. Respighi - a beauty it is too!) and for new music, Paul McCartney's 'Memory Almost Full'.


Don't usually buy many CD's, but I've been buying quite a few lately. I started boycotting mp3, because the format is the death of good sound. So now I either download in flac format or buy CD's.

If only industry folks who should know better didn't compromise the sound quality of most CDs over the past decade from the misguided preconception that they need to be LOUDER, if only more recordings were of high quality to begin with, and if reissues had consistent quality transfers instead of needless reprocessing like NoNoise, inappropriate equipment used in transfer and other symptoms of the industry's long-standing general unprofessionalism, I'd buy more CDs.

Of course if more artists were actually artistic instead of party animals, if more singers could actually sing, if productions quit the crutches of studio artifice, if musicians played more actual instruments, and generally if they made music instead of electronically fabricated, image-driven Product Production... that'd all help too. ;)

I'd be concerned about the mainstream music industry if they didn't have mega corporations to keep them running by default no matter what they do, and if they hadn't been undermining themselves for decades.

There's a few packed run-on sentences for ya.

Armstrong & Duke Ellington: The Master Takes, Satchmo: A Musical Autobiography, I've Got The World On a String / Louis Under The Stars, The Complete RCA Recordings sets are also well worth owning on CD. For starters. :)

perhaps, but i agree with you 110% - especially regarding the recording "techniques" of today which leaves little to nothing for headroom or dynamics. today's youth don't know any better and that's sad. quality is nowhere to be found @ 128kbps with an already over compressed recording.

To be honest, I wouldn't class it as old OR worth it :P

The last CD I bought was The Coral - Roots & Echoes. It's a bit different from their older stuff but I like it. It's a shame there's a bit of a backlash against them in Liverpool at the moment, I don't know why. The Coral are still very original and interesting in my book, but a lot of people I've spoken to about them recently have just dismissed them completely.

I am waiting for it from Amazon at the moment. I did have it as a download, but decided it was so good, I wanted an original CD.

Matthew Good (http://matthewgood.org/)!

I have been a long-time fan of this astounding Canadian musician. I bought all of his albums after he went solo (used to be the frontman of the group Matthew Good Band), but I was growing tired of the crappy quality of his older songs, so I just purchased all of his older albums:


Raygun EP
Last of the Ghetto Astronauts
Beautiful Midnight
The Audio of Being
Underdogs


Ones I already owned (from his solo-career):


Avalanche
White Light Rock and Roll Review
In A Coma (1995-2005)
Hospital Music


Which leaves only two albums that I don't own:


Loser Anthems: B-Sides and Rarities (limited-run production; you can buy them for ~$40 on E-Bay)
Lo-Fi B-Sides (VERY limited press; Matt doesn't even own a copy and his list of methods to get a hold of one starts off with burglaring someone who has it)


</shameless-promotion>

DM was on fire!
February 2nd, 2008, 08:55 PM
Last CDs I bought were Matthew West's Something to Say and David*Crowder Band's A Collision. :)
