  1. I have to take issue with one thing Justin said. He said that CDs have always been there primarily as promotional material for live shows. Although that may be true now, it hasn’t always been the case. I guess if you’re strictly talking CD sales, it may be, but before CDs we had LPs, 45s, cassettes, 8 tracks, and to some extent, even reel-to-reel, and cheap concerts. Concerts were primarily promotional tools to drive record sales. Consider this: In 1980, I paid $10.00 to see Cheap Trick, Molly Hatchett, and two other headliners in the same show. While it’s true that Molly Hatchett and the other two bands had probably peaked a year or two prior, all four bands had released albums within the previous year. That boils down to $2.50 per band, and albums had been selling at $6.99, but with the release of Steely Dan’s Aja, they went to $7.99. Later that same year I paid $10 to see Blue Oyster Cult & Black Sabbath, both with recent album releases. AND I didn’t have to pay a dime for parking! And a friggin’ t-shirt was about $8. Today, a CD typically sells for, oh, let’s call it $15 for argument’s sake. It’s in that ballpark anyway. And how much are concert tickets? Well, Sunday I paid $40 for nosebleed obstructed view tickets for Rob Zombie and Ozzy Osbourne, plus another ten for parking. A t-shirt was a whopping $35. So things have definitely made a turn, and I think it’s a turn for the worse. But look at the record companies. The bands make hardly anything from record sales and must rely heavily on gate receipts to make any money. Just my two bits worth.

  2. I completely agree with Lockjaw. However, I think that artists should know all this going in. I thought Justin Lanning was great, and he definitely belongs in the spotlight. It’s up to him whether he begins to define himself through his music [which I believe he’s already done], or through his popularity and interviews. Of course he’s going to use the CD to promote concerts. Around 1995, that’s when that change started. [And I’m sort of ashamed to say it happened within the country music industry.] So no, it hasn’t always been that way, but it is that way now. That’s why people say “If you don’t like them, don’t get the CD.” Which is completely pointless, because they use the money to fuel the trips [in all the cases I know of]. Anyway, Justin rocked. He’s a truly talented artist, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from Zandor.
