at the risk of sounding preachy, there is a slight problem with dealign
with used CD's. this is that the artist does not get credit for the
sale. i do confess to being a peruser of used stores fairly often, but
i try to be careful about what i buy there. if you see a hole punched
in the bar code or a groove cut int he side of the disc, it is a
promotional copy that came frm the label or frmo a radio station whihc
didnt want it. the poeple who brought those to the stores are the ones
who are making money from it, not the artist. for labels like green
linnet or other small indies, they lose money when we buy those discs
and not ones in "regular" music stores. yes, used CD's generally are
cheaper. BUT for independent artists or ones on small labels, they
lose the sale and revenue. plus, "regular" retailers dont have the
opportunity to see interest in those artist which may affect stocking
decisions inthe future.
jsut wanted to add another perspective...
