Happy 25th Birthday, Compact Disc!

CD celebrates 25th anniversary

http://www.cnn.com/2007/TECH/ptech/0....ap/index.html

I grew up on cassettes and while I hold a nostalgic attachment with tape, CD is by far my favorite medium... still! Digital music.. meh! Gimme CDs and artwork any day!

Awesome.

I'm far too ashamed to say what my first cd was (even though it was a gift), and I still don't want to say what the first CD I purposfully bought was either.

My first cd's were The Cure - Faith and Jethro Tull - Benefit


I'm curious about cd durability. I've noticed on a couple old cd's skips that I don't think were there when I first got them. About 20 years old. Is it possible environmental causes could be responsible for disc deterioration? I know there were concerns about this when cd's first came out. Anyone else notice this?

My old lp's are still fine.

I got my first CD player back in Christmas '87 or '88 - can't be positive which year it was. My mother had bought Paul McCartney's All The Best CD with it.

The first CD I bought, which was right after, was Squeeze's Singles 45's And Under.

Yeah, I have a huge collection of audio tapes and I miss the large vinyl covers with the gorgeous art work, bought all my U2 albums and singles in vinyl up until I bought my first cd which was Pop and I only bought that coz I couldn't get the vinyl version!

My first CDs were the Austin Powers 2 soundtrack and Smash Mouth's Astro Lounge.

Say what you want about Smash Mouth, but that album is kick-ass.

Well every format has deterioration. Vinyl scratches and warps, tape stretches, and CDs scratch...



My first CD was Rattle and Hum...

My first CD was The Unforgettable Fire, but, the first album I bought on CD that I did not already have on cassette was, like BVS, Rattle and Hum.

I like it too The one before that album was a bit punkier, but still interesting
