Well I can certainly relate to the "want it for nothing" crowd. $25.00 is a lot to pay for an album - almost 4 hours working minimum wage. So for a teenager... Lucky for me, most of what I listen to is 50s-70s, so I've been able to build a massive collection from shopping at yard sales and the like, paying well under a dollar on average for albums. I'm not much of the record store type, unless there's something truly rare that I'm looking for. Otherwise, I'm good with waiting until I find it in the dollar bin. Don't see anything wrong with that!
