Qubic – Frame Your Music

Back in the early 90s, I had heard of CDs but dismissed it as an expensive fad…

I quickly began a campaign for a CD player as my upcoming birthday + Christmas gift. I joined Columbia House and BMG (remember those?). Over the next decade, I managed to accumulate quite a CD collection. I believe I had over 1,000 CDs at my last count which took place one lonely Saturday night back in 1998.
