Actually this is quite interesting as its a reason why I abandoned downloads. Well, like Chazz, not that I didn't know who I was listening to but...

I resisted downloads for ages then at one point I couldnt find a particular album. I found it on iTunes and went berserk buying digitally.. thats when I got to a point that I could not remember the albums Id bought.. well not all of them.

Apart from 2 CD's in the 20 years Ive been buying CD's I have never accidentally bought doubles (I have done it on purpose) and can always remember the cover from the physical copy, from holding it, from looking at the art work and liner notes.. with downloads I really feel like Ive thrown my money in the wind. You just dont get the same connection!!

Im back to buying CD and/or vinyl.. there are a few exceptions here and there (for instance theres a band I really dig called Vanisher, they are independents that put tracks up on Bandcamp every now and then... and at least I can buy it uncompressed (Apple Lossless or Flac)).. but 99% of the time now its physical!!
