BBC NEWS | Technology | Stopping the pop-swappers

This article BBC NEWS | Technology | Stopping the pop-swappers posits the theory that the death of the single is just one of the reasons why CD sales are down. I would add to that the fact that the BIG 5 do not for the most part actually care about music so they have no interest in actually seeking out, signing and publicizing new acts unless they fall into their narrowly defined “vision” of what makes them the most money. Sad.
Later.
