    I don't really understand why you'd think CD will make a resurgence as a preferred format. I suspect shaker and I are in the same boat, I haven't actually listened to my CDs in at least 5, maybe 10 years. Storage space is at a premium in SF, and most people don't want to hang on to things they know they'll never use again.

    Yeah, but that doesn't make sense. Why buy two copies of the same exact thing when there are no new songs, new art, new mastering or anything else that might give someone reason to get the reissue?

    looking to buy the Trojan Dub Box Set on vinyl if anyone has or sees out there.

    Selling a few rare britpop and other records not listening to anymore. Crazy to find out that Seventh Tree is going for nearly a hundred now. http://www.ebay.com/sch/ocbolts/m.ht...p2047675.l2562

    to be fair a lot of us didn't expect vinyl to make a resurgence either. as unlikely as it seems that CDs will become useful or desirable again, the future is hard to predict.

    The reissue was supposedly remastered.

    Well, that's the argument many people have behind the resurgence of vinyl as a medium: that it offers superior audio quality, that the art is larger and thus more engaging, sometimes interesting packaging and the mode of listening all have been argued as why vinyl is, for some people, resurgent as a format. Comparing the relative worth invites that suggestion, even if you did say you think they'd be easier to rebuy.

    I haven't been buying many records recently because, well, I have too many to deal with currently. For my birthday, however, I finally picked up

    James Brown - Live at the Apollo

    And it totally slays. Worth the wait.
