Thread Name: Stingy CD Reissues - why so few cuts?
Subject: RE: Stingy CD Reissues - why so few cuts?
I think it started out with what people will buy that determines what they sell.
Why put 20 tracks on one CD when people will buy 2 CDs with 10 tracks each? It has become a kind of standard, so if you put more tracks on a CD, you run the risk of being perceived as a beginner in the industry.
If we only buy from those guys like Art and Tom Paxton who give good value for money then perhaps we can change this.
