Good Bye Ear X-Tacy

And there goes your freedom of choice, there goes the last human voice and there goes the last DJ... (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers - The Last DJ)

It's sad times as the local music stores fade. One of my favorites Ear X-tacy in Louisville, Ky annouced it's closure this week. This store along with Lexington KY's CD Central are 2 of the best music stores that I have ever visited. Digital music has it's good points, but there is nothing like searching through those music bins looking for the rare, hard to find, out of print or even a common everyday disc. Time moves forward, but I long for the old days. Ear X-tacy you will be missed.
