Since the early ’70s I have been collecting Music on intially Vinyl then Cassette followed by CD’s.
Still buying Vinyl but Listen to music mainly Streaming or on USB or SD while driving.
The first album I bought was Deep Purple in Rock and I still have it.
Before I used to buy singles but when I was around 12/13 I was able to get down the High Street in Kirkcaldy to visit Bruces Record shop and get my hands on some 12 inch vinyl, instead of 45’s.
Still it gets a spin on the deck and Speed King is probably my go to song when on a long drive
Never saw Deep Purple in the Day but I did manage to Gillian in ’79 and also caught the band finally in ’22 at the O2.
