Is Music Really Worth 99 Cents a Track?

The New York Times Online has an interesting article entitled What Price Music? discussing whether legal downloading will consign sales of CDs to the dustbin of history. Some good points are made but personally I like to buy CDs. Call me crazy but I like having something tangible in my hands with liner notes and lyrics and graphics and all the rest. Hell I even started buying vinyl again! Downloads are here to stay and are definitely the wave of the future but I find it ironic in this day of SACD and DVD Audio and the rest that vinyl is actually experiencing a (somewhat modest) surge of popularity. Go figure.
