The product would look just as good as a CD release, just be smaller and not take a whole floor up to make your own 'tick'. Each CD could be pictured also.
If I was an artist, that is what I would have done personally. I find vinyl a real nuisance. It's big and it gets dusty and it pops. The only use for it is a 300 limited edition standard vinyl release of Yes - but if you actually want to play the tracks - CD.
I wish vinyl would die and artists would stick to just CD and downloads. Then I can just collect the CDs and put all the mixes in one 'Digitalism' folder on my harddrive within individual 'single' folders.
Also if an artist *must* release expensive promos with unreleased material, please make them only on CD because I like to play them.
It really does bug me when formats aren't consistant. Ie CD, CD with Quicktime video, DVD audio, download only, vinyl. If I were an artist, all my releases would be CD and downloads only. Videos would be via iTunes/YouTube.
On the plus side, no more cassingles!!!!
