Not to detract from or add to Alain statement, but it should be noted
that he is no longer with the company as of mid Jan 2007.

"The CD is dead"      Written by Smaran on October 29, 2006   The CEO &
chairman of EMI Music, Alain Levy told an audience at the London
Business School on Friday that the CD as we know it is dead.

   The CEO & chairman of EMI Music, Alain Levy told an audience at the
London Business School on Friday that the CD as we know it is dead.
  According to Levy, record companies won't be able to market CDs any
longer without including 'value added material' and will have to make
CDs a more attractive purchase to the consumer. "We have to be much more
innovative in the way we sell physical content," he said.
 Levy noted that physical media still has a place, but it isn't going to
have it for very long. "You're not going to offer your mother-in-law
iTunes downloads for Christmas," he said.
 Should we take this with a pinch of salt? Sales figures provided by the
IFPI (PDF) don't quite support his claim. CD sales accounted for more
than 70% of total international music sales in the first half of 2006,
while digital music sales were still at about 11%.
 He also talked about why EMI was the only one of the 'Big Four' record
companies that hadn't jumped on the YouTube bandwagon and signed the
contract. "The terms they were offering weren't acceptable," Levy was
quoted saying. EMI isn't out of the race yet. They are "continuing to
hold talks with Google Inc on an advertising-revenue sharing partnership
with the community video Web site YouTube."


But vinyl is doing just fine. :) I am having a heckuva time buying the
bootleg Gorillaz 12" singles that came out in the past few months,and
there is a real war out there on eBay for The Good,The Bad and The
Queen,especially the 400-copy UK promo Lp,which I finally got on Sunday!
This has pushed up all the prices on the older Blur/Gorillaz stuff on
vinyl.I have it all,except the US "Parklife" 7" on Capitol,and "The
Wassail Song" giveaway 45.Saw one of these recently for $575.00,but I
don't have that kind of cash to throw around.
