    Probably a Melvin Wine fiddle CD, bought from John Hatton's "The Cleff'd Ear"...which really isn't a brick 'n' mortar shop but a travelling shop that sells at festivals. Almost like going to a real shop though...

    Prior to that, probably something from Barnes & Nobles. I don't think I've been in a 'real' record store since the 1990's.

    There were 2 real Record stores near my house in Cincinnati when I was growing up.
    - Record Theater (based out of NY)
    - Everybody’s Records

    I know I have bought a bunch since, either online or at different stores...but the last one I can remember buying from Record Theater before it closed its doors was: Primus: Sailing the Seas of Cheese, spring of 1992

    The last one from Everybody’s Records was: Grateful Dead, Grayfolded, sometime in mid 90’s. The double set with both discs. ‘95 or ‘96...somewhere in there.

    2014. There's a neat little record store a few towns over that has never actually stopped selling vinyl. Both of my parents went there in high school. As vinyl has come back into style, they've trimmed down their hard goods selection and focused more on music and accessories... including locally made, recorded, or produced albums. Oh, we apparently have a booming recording scene locally. Anyway, it was that section from which I purchased the bluegrass CD, kind of accidentally, since the band shares a name with a local punk band that I was actually shopping for. But hey, it turns out that the banjo player goes to the same church as I do. Small world, eh?

    That brings me back quite some time. It's unbelievable how much online shopping and streaming have taken over our lives. The last CD I bought from a real store must have been of Bach's Brandenburg concerti around 2004 or 2005.

    Ha! No idea. I expect it would have been at either Tower or Borders.

    I’ll certainly second-guess your taste, but I won hate.

    I don't hate you (no one has worst taste in music than me), but you did give me a chuckle.

    I went to a music/record store just a few months ago and bought a couple older CDs of Dire Straits that I hadn't owned yet: Love Over Gold and Making Movies.

    I pretty much only listen to rock and actually only my own music and work on it with all my free time.. I grew up listening to tupac as a kid... Even the lead guitarist who is a complete metal head and over 50 year old guy.. appreciates it because I can write lyrics very well, I can also free style sing at any time about any topic while playing riffs and chords.. I don't rap but I free style sing
