"One good thing about the digital era is that it's very easy to make a flawless backup of your work, just in case."

Yep, its good to have all digital media backed up ... CDr or pressed CD (they are far from indestructible).
So easy with the price of hard drives that you only use for this purpose, then turn off.

Also, there is a good chance that a small label will replace a defective CDr.

Actually, having a pressed cd of mystified made has been a goal of mine for years. A long time ago I tried to get Projekt to carry a cdr of mine on consignment in their catalog, but they refused as it was not a pressed cd. I have not had the funds to create a pressed cd as of yet, but it looks like later in 2010 this actually may happen, with my cd, "Passing Through The Outer Gates".

I admit, I do think it is a risk and a considerable expense and I hope it works out. The music is good, but you all know how the market is.
