Physical Music + Digital downloads

The inspiration for this post came from a friend of mine (on facebook, of all places). He stated that he was ‘suprised’ to see that a band had a Vinyl release of thier record, that included a code that you can use to download the same album onto a computer, and recieve it in digital MP3 format aswell. Vinyl does seem to have been making a comeback in recent times, reducing further the amount of CD sales, already heavily affected by the digitalisation of music.

Bill Daly, the owner of Crooked Beat, is part of the trend.

“Since 2007, vinyl has grown to where it is now, 99 percent of our sales,” Daly noted.  “In 2007, when they started introducing new vinyl releases, a free MP3 download card with it, that is when the sales started surging.”(VOA News, 2011)

This just begs one question, is this a good thing? Admittedly it could be affecting piracy, as people are buying the vinyl record as a fashion statement, and aren’t happy with just the digital copy anymore. I’d love to hear you’r views on the topic, so please feel free to comment!

  2. Also a thing to mention is that an online business administration training course is designed for students to be able to well proceed to bachelor degree courses. The Ninety credit college degree meets the other bachelor education requirements when you earn the associate of arts in BA online, you may have access to the modern technologies within this field. Several reasons why students need to get their associate degree in business is because they are interested in this area and want to get the general training necessary in advance of jumping right bachelor education program. Many thanks for the tips you actually provide in your blog.
