Where do you buy your music?
English

Most of my collection i've bought in bulk from friends emigrating or folk selling their Hi-Fi kit. I used to get a few bits from CD Wow but tbh fround their website hard to use and was annoyed at endless CD's turning up in broken cases.


Last few CD's i've bought have been from the Lamb's CD store in York. Specialise in Classics and Jazz, great little independant shop. Well worth calling in if you're nearby.

Re: Where do you buy your music?

Mostly in or around Edinburgh these days, with the occasional foray into Ebay when it's something I'm keen to get I can't ordinarily land otherwise.


Record shops are still my preferred option, but you can't fail to check out the charity shops too - picked up a copy of Sting's Sacred Love SACD disc for £3 the other day and it's in fine condition.

In order

Independant online dealers for bands I find on Myspace.
Amazon.co.uk
CDWOW (rare as they dont have 1% of what I want to buy these days)


..but 100% online.
(I love the new package in the mail feeling)

CD WOW, Play or bargains in shops - for example I found a great CD shop in Cheltenham whilst on holiday for a few days there recently - everything £5.00!!

Re: Where do you buy your music?

Play or Amazon mostly for me. Sometimes Tesco Jersey.


Only time I really buy stuff in the shops is when I'm in Jersey, either from HMV, Woolies or one of the indie shops. Usually some bargains to be had.


I don't like CD-Wow as much as I used to, though they're still good for Far East special editions. Bought a couple of Feeder albums (I know, I know...) from them for £9 or so, which HMV are selling for £30-odds.

Re: Where do you buy your music?

Lately pretty much all ebay.

Vinyl is really cheap and so are cd's, especially as all I am currently buying is older stuff.

Ah yes, Fopp, you can't go wrong there - brilliant shop, currently doing a stack of good CDs for £3 in the Edinburgh store - tons of real finds!

Fopp in Glasgow for me. When having a bad day, a trip at lunchtime makes the afternoon not seem so bad.

Re: Where do you buy your music?

Loads from Amazon, then mostly Borders and HMV. Love the Manchester HMV for its classical and jazz department. I've also started using the Chandos website for downloading lossless audio files from their superb catalogue.

For vinyl, a little record shop called 'Saddle Records' on a backstreet in Blackpool. Not been for ages - must pay them a visit.
