The digital age is upon us.
I posted a similar thread a month ago ( http://www.stormcock.net/vb/showthread.php?t=1674&highlight=digital ) but it didn't attract much conversation !?
Perhaps if I have a word with my Bank Manager to digitally remaster my bank account and credit card I could contemplate all this....:tongue_smilie::drool5::m8:
I suspect the reason there wasn't much comment, Chris, is that we all have it all already I do think that getting listed on places such as iTunes will help him though, particularly for the "impulse buy" generation with not enough patience to go and buy a proper CD!
I'd be interested to know what they are doing about the artwork/lyrics. Tracy was very committed to providing this as PDFs when we worked on the downloads at royharper.co.uk.
Having bought the downloads of Poems..., Looney, Once, Commercial Break and Burn The world from Roy's site I have found the attached lyric pdfs excellent. They are the pages from the lyric book and whilst I would rather have the cd as they are not available now this is a great compromise. Listening to the music from my imac cnnected to my stereo with the pdf on the screen works really well
Oh yes I agree - I won't be downloading anything that I already own and have already ripped to my hard-drive - I'm still a lover of CD's. Though saying that, I'll still probably download the new compilation - cos it's the nearest thing to a new album that we are likely to see for a while ( except of course the aforementioned DVD )
RE Songs of Love and Loss digital download - I noticed that on the Amazon download list that several tracks have (2011) written after them as if to suggest these might be 2011 versions. Anybody know if these are actually new versions of these old classics, which would of course give one more reason to buy it?
