    Substitute "music" for "anything" and it becomes even better.

    I'm really into Dick Contina. Any James Ellroy fans out there.

    Yes, the next logical step is having Walmart (or someone else) buy exclusive rights to an artist we care about and then charging a premium for the CD.

    Right now, Walmart is probably doing it as a way to lure customers into the store (you can only get it here). Long term, this is another way that the smaller chains are going to get squeezed out of business. It's going to stink when you have to call around to find out which exclusive store carries the CD you want to buy.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    well, the music biz is fragmented now - so the artists are adjusting. I just recorded a Christmas album with Joan Osborne that wil be sold ONLY at Barnes and Noble. I think it's a good thing personally; no more business meetings to determine whether to add strings or which songs to record. In the end (eventually), I hope the music gets better.

    Some artists have recorded CDs that have an "extra" song if sold at a particular store. For example, Martina McBride's CD "Martina" had the song "Show Me" on copies sold at Wal-Mart; copies of the CD sold elsewhere didn't include that song. Martina also released a limited edition mini-CD sold only at Hallmark stores around Valentine's Day this year.
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    Buy from your local independent record store. And buy vinyl, it's better.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Well, if you're someone who can appreciate twang, then yes I would say so. But there are inherent preferences that each of us have--not everyone "likes" or appreciates all kinds of music.

    I consider myself rather well-versed in the musical world...I own over 1,000 albums, I play piano, drums and guitar, love jazz and rock and try to attend as many concerts as I can. And I loathe country music. Can't stand it. I don't like the twangy sound, I don't like the lyrical content of many of the songs, I don't relate to the lifestyle...I just plain, flat-out don't like it. I've no doubt that there are many accomplished and gifted country songwriters and performers out there. But it's simply something I don't "get". I have had dozens of people suggest hundreds of songs and artists to me, saying things like "This is country music for people who don't like country", and more often than not I still don't like it.

    Some people have no tolerance for jazz, some rue the day synthesizers ever made an appearance, some think hard rock is just a bunch of noise...it's all personal preference. So, if someone doesn't like all things twang, they're probably not missing as much as you think they are. They probably just don't like it, and there's nothing inherently wrong with that. I certainly don't fall into the "likes a little bit of everything" crowd, and as most people who know me would attest to, music is my oxygen.

    The only people I know who like popular country are rich white girls.

    I agree and disagree. Albums have their merits--as I'm sure you know, albums have, to some extent, greater fidelity to a live sound than do CDs; albums are, literally, a "cut" of sound. CDs for all their crystal clarity tend to "flatten" the sound a bit, homogenize it.

    I like both media a lot--they both offer tremendous windows onto recordings and both have archived sound wonderfully. I'll keep 'em both.

    Country music is fine--but it involves much more work to find the good stuff than in, say, jazz or even rock for that matter. There was a time when I could devote great chunks of time to digging up good stuff, but those days, frankly and sadly, are gone.
