Ive just taken a huge risk and bought a massive collection on ebay for not a lot - figured it was as a good a way as any to sift thorugh a load of stuff I probably wouldnt find otherwise

Probably take me a year to get through and use the dross as frisbees etc

I tend to go through buying sprees, nothing for ages then eventually wake up and realise I need some new noises and go on a spree.

At this time of year I'm adding stuff to my Amazon wishlist in the hope someone else will buy me the music I want for Christmas
My taste in music means that I am generally blissfully unaware of the 'latest and greatest' pop bands so never feel I need to rush out and buy a new release.

But I am in danger of buying a bunch of CDs if I ever visit sites such as TheMusicResource.com - a very tempting place for jazz fans and when you know that the site is owned and run by none other than Jamey Aebersold ( Mr Jazz Education! ) well, it just becomes such a friendly place to shop. Oh, and Mr Aebersold firmly and honestly believes that listening to high quality jazz music is music education in itself. I have received two parcels from the USA so far and both have been labelled "educational material". No import duty due on educational material and no lies told by the people shipping the CDs - as far as they were concerned they were shipping educational material.

Now wishing you had not asked the question because I am very close to having a browsing session and building up a shopping cart that I can just not say no to...

I can't get out of my favourite music store without buying something. It's really bad when you know guys working there, cause they're always recommending something and putting headphones for me, just hear this. And I happily walk out of store with cd or two.

I generally used to buy new tracks from various download sites once a week, but between the new depths of crap coming out within my favorite genres and not having had my decks set up for 4 (horrible, soul destroying) months I haven't even browsed anything for ages. Will give me something to do when I have nothing to do one night hehe.
CD wise I keep remembering stuff I forgot about and having Amazon sprees about once a month (normally just after payday).

'Singles', pretty much every fortnight or so for gigs, playing out..

As for artist CD albums, when the mood takes me or I find out about a new (to me) interesting band/performer etc..

What are people's favourite online sources for unmixed single/EP/collection material on vinyl or CD?

I've started using HTFR quite alot as Ive not found a decent record store around here, though havnt looked that hard

Any others that people use that have useful online previews, useful categorisation etc?

Erm - thats a list of *downloads* not physical (vinyl/CD) media sources

Downloads are OK if the quality is there to burn to CD, but to me that only at 320kbps with a decent quality encoder for mp3, or ideally .wav files.
