No a record is a flat round black piece of plastic with a hole in the middle.

Certainly not for me. Am VERY lucky to get download speed of 120-150kbps....let alone the near 500kbps i got with that album. This was off a file sharing network (eg pirate bay etc etc)

And you buy records in a record shop (or order them online). You don't download them.

CD shops!

Thats the thing DRay....am not on a fast internet. Such a thing doesnt exist in The Scottish Highlands.
It was a one off.
I have heard this DIME being mentioned quite a lot here this last while. Might go and check it out.
Oh...and the album was ( I hope this is cool) Fleet Foxes
