Monks Get Recording Deal

Jimmy Mac passed on to me this story on Austrian Trappists getting a recording deal with Universal Music, thanks to a YouTube clip. Good for them.

I wonder about the long-term future of recording labels. Young people don’t buy cd’s as much as I bought vinyl lp’s when I was their age. The Age of Download has a lot of opportunity for musicians to bypass an increasingly useless appendage in the music industry: the industry itself.

    There are a lot of us old geezers who do not download anything. We want our CDs available to use in our car, home or portable player. Download, shmownload. Bring back the 8-track reel-to-reel tapes!
