As the most of you probably know I have a thing with film music. In the digital age I still prefer my music on those shiny little discs called CDs. After picking it up, I rip them to music files and put them in a box. Â But it always nice to have a ‘hard’ backup on CDs. The four CDs below are my latest addiditons.
These CDs are the first CDs I have bought using the seller system from Amazon. It is like a second hand market place where amazon deals with the finances. The seller himself is responsible for getting the CD to me. Some CDs are ridicules cheap. Some are just a couple of dollars.

After buying a CD, it is preferred to write a small review about the transaction. That way it is easier for other buyers to see if the seller is trustworthy.
All in all, to me this is a very good alternative to buying digital albums from itunes.
