I just remember being in High School in the early 90's and all of my friends (including me) were buying CD's left and right and upgrading our collection from crappy Cassette Tapes. By the mid 90's, I would sporadically buy CD's of newer bands but not at the rate I was buying in 1989, 1990, 1991, etc.
(In addition).

At times I wonder how many of the big customers of cds back in the 80s and early-90s, were then-middle-aged baby boomers who were replacing their old vinyl collections with cd versions of the same titles from their 50s-60s era youth.

I was an early adopter of CD burners. I think my first one burned at 1x speed. I remember getting a 4x burner and thinking how far the technology had advanced. Now if its not burned in 2 mins. I get impatient, lol.

Re: Do you still buy CDs / have you gotten rid of them?

I have over 1,000 CDs, and will never get rid of them. Been collecting since the mid 80s, and still make occasional purchases from SecondSpin (just picked up The Police's "Message In A Box", which I'm loving). I'll never forget first listening to Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" song on CD in the late 80s, and hearing one of the band members have a slight cough, before David Gilmore's guitar started. Had listened to that song countless times on vinyl before, never never picked up on it. That convinced me that CDs were the only option. Took my 500 or so records, and disposed of them in a dumpster (which, in hindsight, probably was a stupid thing to do)

I just ordered 9 Rock Candy Records reissues of some classic 80's albums on remastered CD's.

I can't wait to get my hands on them!

I should have an autographed copy of Kenny Wayne Shepherd's newest CD in my mailbox any day now.
