How to Make a Music Collection

One of my best possessions in life is my music. Owning a music collection is no doubt a beautiful thing. Having personal copies of your favorite blues, folk, music videos and emo songs is reassuring that you hold what you love.

But how do you go about making a personal music collection? It is quiet simple. The best way to go about it is to start early. Buying music is the best way to start your own collection.
