____________________________________ I just received the e-newsletter from Marston Records and it included the paragraph below. I find this disheartening. Though I have just a cursory interest in classical and opera, Marston has always released quality products. And I know that there is a market for their music - and those buyers do not do "downloads". Steve Ramm WILL CDs BE A THING OF THE PAST? As time moves on, so does the manner in which we receive our music. CDs will probably become a thing of the past. Marston, according to some, is a dinosaur, not noticing the changes that are happening around it. However, we view ourselves as a company that has learned from the past: Only when objects are able to be saved by those who love and collect them in a physical way, is there a chance of preservation. With rare exception, it is not manufacturers, educational institutions, or even historical repositories that have the world's rarest musical collections. It is individuals who care and collect, that supply us with our musical past. We expect you are holding onto a rare and desired collection of Marston CDs at this moment.
