I’ve been blessed to be able to grow up in a world where we still had record stores. It was a place where you had to search through crates for new music based mostly off of the album art on the vinyl sleeves, cassette tape covers, or CD books with little promotion for the album. Back then you couldn’t listen to music on the internet before you bought an album. The internet wasn’t even half of what it is today. Even in the 2000s, it would take a day to download an album on dial-up.
