Filling in more holes thanks to the budget bin. The passing of "Dangerous" Dan Toler earlier this week put me in mind of Gregg Allman and how I don't have any of his solo records save for Low Country Blues. As for Hemispheres, it's always been one of my very favorite Rush albums. I've owned it on vinyl for years but have never gotten around to picking up it up CD.

Special limited edition signed single pressed on red vinyl that's only available to independent record stores. Both songs appear on Low Country which is out on April 16th.

I have an iPod but the majority of music on it is bought and paid for. I have a lot of stuff on vinyl that's never been released on compact disc and most likely never will be. So, if I ever come across one of those records online that someone has converted to mp3 I have no problem whatsoever downloading it since it's an out of print title and I already own it. Everything else on my iPod came from my CD collection and are albums I ripped to iTunes. I'm no audiophile but I did resist making the transition over to mp3's because of the loss in audio quality. That all changed when a friend gave me an iPod Shuffle back in 2008. Not long afterwards I started the process of ripping all of my CD's to iTunes and bought an iPod Classic that holds 160 GB of music (that's roughly 200 hours).

When I was growing up back in the 70's we thought nothing of recording vinyl records to cassette (or 8-track) so we could listen to music in our cars. Obviously, cassettes lack the sound quality of vinyl but it was a compromise we were willing to make because of the convenience. I look at my iPod the same way. Previously, I would lug around several of those photo album style CD books from Case Logic. Not anymore. Now, I have the vast majority of my entire CD collection (well over 2000 at this point) with me at all times. I don't miss carrying all those Case Logic books around or possibly having them stolen. On occasion I also still purchase new vinyl albums, the majority of which come with a a download code card so I can also have an mp3 copy of the album. In fact, I prefer buying vinyl to compact discs as there's no loss in quality (as there is with CD's). Plus, you get all that kick ass artwork and liner notes that you don't get with mp3's alone. When it comes to iTunes, I've downloaded a Ryan Adams box set (it was $10, hard to beat price-wise) and the new EP from the Replacements. Just because I use iTunes (the software) and own an iPod it shouldn't imply that I'm into illegally downloading music. I do my very best to support my favorite artists by purchasing their albums and buying merch at shows. Unfortunately, a lot of people think music should be free and that they are somehow entitled to it. I'm not one of them.

I've got Simple Dreams on vinyl but after getting on a Ronstadt kick recently I picked it up on CD out of the bargain bin at Barnes and Noble. Funny, her music was nearly inescapable back in the 70s and into the 80's but you rarely hear anything about her anymore.
