CD and cassettes.

The CD is 25 years old. In episode 110 of TWIT, the guys reminisce about the first compact discs they bought.

Over at TWIM the guys stumble into a discussion on mixtapes.

Between the two, I think I am more nostalgic about tapes than CDs because compact discs are still around. Check out the links on the TWIM page about cassettes. Like this one on cassette tape culture.

The first CDs I bought were probably Phil Collins, King Crimson, and Genesis. FF 25 years and I just repurchased Genesis because the discs have been remastered with extras! Some new remastered Alan Parsons Project discs have track demos.
