20-30 years ago a new album launch would mean waiting for the local music store to stock it, checking every few days (there was a time when we were months behind on international releases) … waiting for it to come on the radio (the DJ’s often would import stuff themselves) … the thrill of finally seeing the album in the store … choosing the cassette/disc towards the back so that it was the least handled and less scratched … buying it followed by the unwrapping and relishing over cover and notes on the way home … with all the excitement building up to the first listening session.Now it’s: see announcement of album launch on facebook … launch Spotify … click-click-click … and am listening to it.

“Well something’s lost, but something’s gained.”
