Thread Name: Stingy CD Reissues - why so few cuts?
Subject: RE: Stingy CD Reissues - why so few cuts?
Am I the only one who has distinctly mixed feelings about bonus cuts? I often find that my old vinyl works fine, and I'm effectively stuck paying for a whole cD to get one or two added tracks.

Re MP3- If you eliminate the $, you also eliminate the other good things that the record producer supplies: notes, A&R, back-up musicians and, in the case of a good record producer (ie Folk Legacy), the taste that often makes the recording worth listening to. If you don't want to pay for recordings, don't buy them and listen to amateurs.
