  1. You have no idea how good you are. You have the best ska collection. A constant dig for the greatest hits. I have about 200 ska cds. And it is all i collect. Now i buy some digitally. How much percent of your collection is records??

    • Andy, thank you for the kind words! I do have a rather large CD and vinyl collection, and most of it is ska or ska/punk. Last count (a few years ago) I had about 1,000 CDs and 450 pieces of vinyl. When I was a kid in the mid ’90s and was getting into music, I bought about a CD a week, and vinyl when ever I could find it for cheap. Built up a big collection that is kind of difficult to cart around whenever I move! I do tend to buy more digital now, just for the space saving but also the cash savings. No shipping charges for digital. I also usually buy digital when a band has a bandcamp page set up, as I know the money is going to them pretty directly. When I order physical media anymore it is when a band does a crowd funding thing, or from small and great labels. Other than that, I usually will pick up an album from a band when they come to town, even if I got it from them digitally in the past. I don’t have a total on my digital library, so I can’t give a good breakdown on my digital vs. my physical, but it is a safe bet that anything I play that was released after 2010 has a higher chance of being from a digital album I own, rather than a physical one.
