Universal Music Group is FINALLY dropping the price of CDs to a more reasonable and maximum cost of $10 per CD. I can’t even begin to say for how many years I’ve been stating that CDs are too expensive. Now, so many years later, they’re still too expensive AND are a dying breed. Is anyone really surprised?
I can’t tell you the last time I bought myself a CD for any reason. Maybe this is the beginning of a wave of price changes. But sadly, I’m pretty sure the people who will ultimately suffer are the musicians signed with these labels. It’s one of the main reasons I like going to concerts.
