Old Music Discoveries Found New Again!

The other day, I came across some great discoveries of good old CD Albums!  From some of the artists  that I grew up listening to. The most surprising part of it all was that I found them in a shop one would not expect to find such items, and that was in Poundland!  (for those who are not from the UK, Poundland is pretty much what it says it is , a land (shop) where everything in store is for a £1!). I have to say they really are upping their game these days, and selling some worthy stuff! Anyway I was so drawn to the music section , I almost felt like I was in a record shop and it felt great!  If I’m completely honest I’ve  never really purchased a music CD growing up (I think I bought around two to maybe four CDS?),  since  downloading them just was the thing to do and still very much is what the majority of us do today, simply because its more convenient to have it digitally.  Because of this, having a physical item of music is a pretty new experience for me and I have to say I think my generation and future ones are  missing out on the whole experience of being able to have a physical copy to see and appreciate the art cover and the content inside the sleeve.

In the near future as I learn more about music from both the past and present I will definitely be finding and buying the originals where I can.  But thanks to Poundland it has ignited this idea of building my own physical music library dedicated to music from all around the world spanning different decades and genres.  Given that these ones that I bought from Poundland were so cheap I ended up getting a whole bunch at once because I couldn’t really go wrong with a £1 per CD now could I? I literally felt like a kid in a candy store! I mainly got ones that I was already familiar with and a few CDS that I’d never heard of before but found the cover art and song titles interesting so thought I’d give them a try.

I think they were able to sell it for just a £1,  I’m assuming is because they are pre- owned and refurbished versions of the originals using recycled items, as inside each CD is a little leaflet from, musicMagpie  asking for old CDS, DVDS etc in exchange for some cash.


This is a picture I took of the leaflet inside every CD

I think this is a great idea, as I’m all for doing what we can to be resourceful and healthy to the environment as much as we can. To be honest I’m really amazed at how great the quality of these CDs are!  Especially with all the covers just like the originals! I defiantly will be making a contribution to this recycling ad from musicMagpie  as I got a whole lot of DVDs stored away that I don’t watch anymore or haven’t even bothered to see, so I need to get rid of them to make space for my new and life long obsession of music!

In the mean time I got all these Albums to trifle through , I’ve not managed to listen to them all yet, but I will defiantly look forward to it!

Lots of love,

  1. So THAT’s what happens to the old CD’s you send to places like Music Magpie! What a brilliant idea! I’ll definitely be hitting up Poundland next time I’m in the UK for a musical treasure hunt…thanks for the top tip!

    1. I know I always wondered about that too! I didn’t realise they make actual replica CDs of well known albums, I thought they’d make something else other than CDs like little trinkets or something ? which is silly now I think of it lol! X Yh definitely have a look they are selling loads of them , it doesn’t look like they are slowing down anytime soon! Your most welcome and thank you for reading, I’m really glad you found it helpful 😊 x


  2. Just last night I was wondering who would be buying those CDs anymore as I was browsing through the shelves at the local market in here. If it were a dollar like you say there might be people who might.

    1. Thank you so much for your awesome comment, I know what you mean! The fact that they were so cheap is what encouraged me to buy them which soon after made me realise how much I actually like having and appreciate the physical copy of a CD! I reckon some point in the future they will make a comeback like vinyl and cassette! 🙂 though I’m yet to try the latter 😊 x
