I mean, sure, "Blind Eye" I listen to on Youtube.  But I mean serious listening.

I am planning to get a network player so I can play downloaded albums on my stereo system, since so much stuff I'm interested in is no longer released in physical formats.  (This is necessitating an upgrade of my home wifi network, which I'm in the middle of effecting now and am not particularly enjoying.)

If I owned all the records I played I would have sold them by now.

I would still buy CDs by the handful of contemporary artists I truly care about (I have all the late period Walker albums, for example), but otherwise the value proposition is horrible.
