Digital Sales Surpass Cd's At Atlantic But Total Sales Down

As a result, the hope that digital revenue will eventually compensate for declining sales of CDs — and usher in overall growth — have largely been dashed.

The full article is here

Interesting read.

 

I didn't know any of the bands they mentioned in your article that are under the Atlantic umbrella. :o

 

I wonder if the label tends to have a younger audience. <_<

One of the problems is there are still only 24 hours in a day.

 

With people spending more of that time making their own DVDs, having a Second Life online, playing multi-player games online - there's less time left for listening to music, whether CD or .mp3's.

 

That would logicly lead to lower sales.

Let see:

 

"For Atlantic Records, the label that in years past has delivered artists like Ray Charles, John Coltrane and Led Zeppelin..."

and

"Atlantic, whose artists include the Southern rapper T. I., the rock band Death Cab for Cutie and Kid Rock..." More "artists" here.

 

Old guys like me still buy and listen to good music; that ain't it !

 

Also, I wonder what effect that Internet Radio and XM radio (other legitimate sources) have on sales.

 

I'm listening to Internet radio as I type. ^_^

 

Sorry, a little bit of drift here.

Boy, when you lay it out like that it tells a story about Atlantic. Not one I like, though. :rolleyes:

 

Didn't cd post a story a while back about ac/dc or another big name group that won't even let them sell their songs on itunes?

 

Funny how different approaches must work for different groups.
