I bought seven CDs last week, physical media for the win.
Not true, I bought a used CD at Goodwill once for three dollars and it was all scratched and stained and wouldn't run, till this day I haven't bought another Beatles CD it traumatized me so much.Ain't nothin' wrong with buying used. A few cigarette stains never hurt anyone.
Surely buying from Goodwill you could have checked the disk beforehand? Goodwill can usually supply you with some excellent finds, but you know going in that things aren't going to be in the best condition.Not true, I bought a used CD at Goodwill once for three dollars and it was all scratched and stained and wouldn't run, till this day I haven't bought another Beatles CD it traumatized me so much.
If you're not a fan of buying online(though usually a lot of online sellers are trying to run a business, so they're usually aiming for the best service; checking reviews is a good way to go) you can usually find a lot of decent stores that sell used CD, DVDs/Blu-rays and games. I'm not sure what's available to you where you are, but in Ohio I visited this great place called The Exchange with Scott that has a few stores dotted around the area. It offers new/used media and I can honestly say I had the most fun browsing around, and spent most of my money there. The great thing about these places is the price, and being able to check the condition of what you're buying beforehand. Do a little research to see what you have on offer.Wouldn't mind used if I can check it before.
Honestly if you really want it that bad, I'd just go ahead and buy it for the £8. Just check the seller's rep and the condition of the CD.The thing with this particular album is, it's kinda rare (why would they go for $400+ as new). Especially outside USA I don't see anyone selling it.
Gimme Echo & the Bunnymen any day, much better of scouse band, Among others.Rare to find a fellow Beatles-hater.
Just do not see what all the fuss was about - they were crap. No real diversity to their sound, no progression with their style...arrogant, drugged-up hippies at best.
