One Question Interviews: Amoeba Music

Marc Weinstein (Amoeba Records, co-owner)

SPB: What shift in listening format has been the most surprising in your run as a store?

Weinstein: The most surprising shift was back in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s when everybody was convinced they needed to buy their collection over again on this new "improved" format called a "CD..." CDs offered a degree of enhanced "portability,” yes, but the sound and experience seemed diminished to us record store folk, from Day One, NOT TO MENTION they cost less than half as much to make and cost twice as much to buy.

LPs still rule in terms of experience.
