The Unknown: Ryan Adams at KCRW

All week I have scoured the city for a hard copy of the new Ryan Adams album.  Best Buy (the once best place in town to buy new CDs) had it on back order.  But they had a dozen of the new Bryan Adams. True story!  I went to Target, they didn’t have it either.  I went to three independent music stores.  None of them had it.  I ended up buying it on Amazon.  Certain albums I don’t mind getting digitally…but I have found I give more attention to an album when I get the hard copy of it.  That’s why I wanted the Ryan Adams.  With two discs…it was a lot to absorb and would get lost in my 95,000 MP3 song library.  I would have bought the pre-order on Pax-Am, the record label…but they were sold out.  I almost didn’t buy the album because I couldnt find it.  It’s like the music industry is working overtime to fail.  I just don’t get it.
