I admire collectors in all honesty. There's something about collecting music, movies, even video games that's really passionate.

Oh yeah i'm not having a go just didn't think anyone was still doing this. I've got a bunch of collectables in my attic, in a box, but that's where they stay :D

Having built collections over a long time we are reluctant to part with the physical item.

Although if we were beginning our interest in music now, we would probably do so through streaming services.

Spotify and similar are pretty amazing. Having an endless library of artists one click away for only 10 bucks a month, it can't get any better.

I did try and continue my physical collections for a while, I think around 2008 I was still buying CDs and then burning them onto my computer so I had two copies. It was a fun little hobby for a while but when spotify came around that completely killed off that

Stephen - yes, that was the way I was doing it until around that time.

I still have my collection, and utilise it (now via MP3), but if I was starting out now I would use streaming services.

I love that Emmerdale album.

I don't really buy physical releases anymore and I don't stream. I just buy mp3 from bandcamp or Amazon music. I put my music on Google Play.
