Given that more artists (especially independents) are officially releasing EPs and full releases as downloads, i-Tunes only, etc., without a physical CD version, should they be included for completeness?

 

Two caveats in my mind:

 

1. They would have an entry in the description that indicates they are download-only, so people don't think they are available on CD.

 

2. I'm not considering extending this to going back to vinyl, cassette, 8-track, etc. Just modern officially-sanctioned releases.

 

Like it or not, we're going to be seeing more of these as time goes on.

Definite yes from me. Especially if there's a feature which advises if a release is physical or MP3 only, that surely cancels out any issue anyone might have with it?

 

Like you say, it's 2013 and in 5-10 years there may not even be any new CDs any more. It's sadly just the way it's going so there's no point ignoring it. :)

Yes, definitely agree on that. And also include everything that was only released as CDR or tape, I don't see any harm on doing that, after all heavyharmonies is a music site, not a CD-only site :)

Not according to Dan.

 

CDs. Not vinyl. Not cassettes. Not 8-tracks. Not MiniDiscs.

 

No.

Ok, now you're pissing me off. You know damned well I clarified my opinion in the original thread, and you know the distinction I am making.

 

If you prefer, I'll just make an arbitrary decision WITHOUT bothering to solicit any input from anyone...

Are you talking to me, or the lot of us? I know what you mean, and I'm not arguing. I simply used your words to reply to Nightrain.

Yes, let's keep up with the times & include download only official releases.

German melodic rockers Frontline actually have a download only release orginating from Uruguay of all places :)

 

Expand on this please. When was it released and what songs are on it? Is it a full release no one else is aware of?

Yep, I'm for it as well.
