Got a copy of "Oblivion" but "Halo" is still on my wishlist. Anybody?

I'm the same way--it doesn't exist if it's not on CD (guess I won't be buying your new download, he he).
I hope we all can learn from these mistakes and make some changes for the better.
+1 for that
it almost looks as if they try to calm down the people trying to prevent mass-panicking.
I pressed 1000 cds of my debut release, a double cd digipack.......an unknown musician pressing that much in this market place was crazy, but the reality was/is that to press less would mean the cost would be much more per unit, so I could not pass that along to potential listeners, so pressing more than I thought I could sell to keep cost down even though that meant sitting on inventory that may or may not move in the future, was the only way to go!
Artistic expression has absolutely nothing to do with convenience.
Those of you who still love CDs or records or both, bear in mind that the labels and the self-released artists who are still putting out materials in these formats need your support more than ever. The break-even point for releasing a CD used to be very easy to reach, with a bit of promotion and word of mouth. Now, even for a more established artists released on a well-known label, it can be difficult to sell enough CDs to justify pressing the discs in the first place.
Conversely, those of us who release music must remember the vital importance of releasing materials of high quality, with an appealing presentation. It's not enough any more to just slap something together and put it out there. We need to be more selective about what we release and put greater care into making it look, feel and sound the best it possibly can.
