Thread Name: Tech: Do people still print or buy CDs?
Subject: RE: Tech: Do people still print or buy CDs?
I know people who still have CDs made of their recordings because (1) a lot of us don't subscribe to music services :-p, and (2) it's a lot harder to sell a physical object at a gig than to say, well, go to this web site, give them your credit card, and then you'll be able to listen. :-)

At folk music gigs in this part of the world, the audiences are OLD. They want something to hold on to. Probably, in another twenty or thirty years, that will have changed -- if there are still any folk music gigs to attend.

Count me among those who still prefer a real CD. Of course, I lived on limited bandwidth for a long time, and still have limited data on my cell phone's data plan.
