We used to talk about how great a new record was, and how it compared to the last record, or how we had heard a great song, or how good a band was the night before, or about a great record store with staff who knew about music, or the artwork. Now we talk and complain about how the digital companies are paying so little (to artists and writers), and whether one digital company is ‘better’ than another. The heads of the major labels allowed digital to take over the music business, and now the digital suppliers are more important than the creators. How poignant.
