    The other day I found the last CD I ever actually bought in a Record Store.

    At The Drive In - Relationship of Command (2000)


    I was leaving on a roadtrip and heard the song "One Armed Scissor" on the radio.

    They of course did not announce who the band was, or what the title of the song was.

    I pulled into the record store a few blocks before the freeway entrance and tried to sing "cut away, cut away" to the girl behind the counter.

    "Wow, we just got that disc in this morning. How did you hear about it?" she said.

    That disc was in heavy rotation for the next few weeks.

    There is a very cool record store, independently owned, near us- "Record Revival" Tons of vinyl, CDs and some of the most arcane stuff. This guy seems to be able to get anything- even stuff "out of print".

    BUT- on to the question:

    Last CDs bought there: Pink Floyd The Wall; Neil Young Everybody Knows This is Nowhere; Cream Disreali Gears.

    The newest CD I have, was a gift from my Sister -in-Law.


    It was a thoughtful gift since she knew how much I liked (older) Metallica and didn't know how much this album sucked balls. I got it the year it came out.

    OK, let's qualify this question.

    What what the last new CD you ever bought IN AN ACTUAL RECORD STORE?

    (Add the year you bought it, if you know) .

    So not a CD you bought at a garage sale, gig, Walmart or Amazon.....

    Far too long ago but the only store I bought CDs from in town closed in 2008. The last CD from there that I can remember was this one in 2003.

    I guess I'm lucky. We still have a record store. It's Ralph's Records. Go there all the time since I still listen primarily to CD's. The last CD I bought there was about a month ago. It was actually an out of print CD that was recommended here on Strat-Talk. It was Paul Pena's "New Train".

    RUSH-R40. I bought it when it came out in 2015. There's few discs in among it, both CD & DVD.

    Interestingly, & sadly, the Record shop ( Red Hot CD's ) has since closed down...I'd been well looked after by these folks too, as I'd also grabbed a few guitars through them over-the-years.

    (Should people here value other folks having a job to go to, seriously consider buying your "stuff" in-person, so that the person serving you has a job tomorrow ! It seems that internet-purchasing is killing-off jobs & businesses, so this isn't a healthy sign IMO for the future)....

    Last CD has been a while, but I did get some vinyl from a nice little shop in Laguna a while back.
