Where's the fun in tracking down rare records if you can find them all with a click?

Observer Music Monthly journalist Tom Cox asks the question in a column that you can read here.

For me the golden days of the used record store have long passed. And I have spent many a wonderful hour browsing, hoping to uncover something special. But I equally find that when you just begin discovering new music there is more opportunity for both surprise and for long hours of careful and repeated listening, and that, more than having a 'rare' piece of vinyl, is where the real magic lies, for me. My music collection is big enough and my life busy enough that I had the epiphany that I need to rediscover my music collection itself.
