What was your last music related purchase?

Discussion in 'Comeback corner' started by Tommy Johnson, Aug 13, 2017.

  1. Not sure if a thread like this already exists... It feels like it should! I couldn't find one anyway.

    So, it can be CD, DVD, Blu Ray, Vinyl, Download, Cassette!.. Whatever you fancy. If you want, state where you bought it and how much it cost. Have they been worth your time, or do you wish you hadn't bothered now?!

    Due to the fact that this has been my worst (as in far too many) year for buying CDs, I will be populating this thread more than I probably should!

    Mods. If a thread like this does exist, please delete this one. I don't want to tread on anybody's toes!

  6. I can see you have the same problem as me..

  7. Yes and this is just the tip of the iceberg really. I keep buying new shelves for CDs...

  8. Yes, I'm running out of space! I didn't even list all the ones I've bought in the last few months..

  9. Finding the time to actually listen to everything has proven impossible though. I still have the Dead or Alive box SEALED for example. I probably have hundreds of titles I have yet to listen too, although some I buy mostly to include in my artist collections (compilations, CD singles etc).

  10. What promoted the entire Blondie/Debbie Harry back catalogue purchases?!

  11. I have always been a fan but somehow I never really got into their catalog, besides the hits. When I heard "Fun" earlier this year I just felt it was time. I haven't listened to everything yet but what I have heard I absolutely love! Their more recent albums are excellent, especially their latest one. I am really looking forward to seeing them in concert later this year.

    So far I have about 70 Blondie/Debbie CD's + the singles box. In fact, I just bought the 5trk promo of Debbie's "Two Times Blue" less then five minutes ago. I should move away from the computer...

  12. There are the following threads;

    I Just Bought - recent music purchases
    The Bargain Thread - recent sales/discounts
    Vinyl Justice - all things relating to record purchases
    Thrift Shop Finds - second hand finds in charity shops

    ...so I guess it's all covered elsewhere?

  13. Throw in The Reissue Thread too and you'll have a pretty good idea what forumers have been buying.

  14. Yeah, I've noticed the Bargain Thread but haven't seen the others. I did a search using titles similar to mine but nothing came up.

    Thanks anyway. At least it explains the lack of responses!

  15. For the most part they're not threads dedicated to new purchases, but new purchases tend to be part of the discussion as they are quite conversational threads.

  16. I think a couple were moved to the lists board as they were just, well, lists of things people bought. The search function isn't very sophisticated here, so you're better off searching Google for "Popjustice forum ____".

  17. Most specifically I downloaded the new Dannii Minogue single today.

    Physical product was Samantha Fox's The Fox Box which arrived on the same day as I bought the new Lorde and Take That albums for a fiver each in Tesco.
