NBC: Poll: Major Shift in buying trends affects CD demand....

This (below) is JUST what is killing the major labels and they don't
realize it! Nearly 22% of the respondents are purchasing directly from the
bands at shows. With established artists and unsigned bands self producing, a
major shift FROM the traditional major label/indie label distribution
channel to the artists makes it appear as if CD demand is "down" when in fact it
has moved "off the radar".
Artists now have the ability (with digital technologies) to produce really
credible, quality product and sell it from the stage and through
alternative "non-reporting" channels.
The CD is not dead... it's just well hidden!
