CDRs are bad for the artists, labels

I think CDRs are fine for older CDs that are rare or ridiculously expensive (Martin Briley's "One Night with A Stranger", John Waite's "Mask of Smiles" etc.) but you'll never catch me buying/selling CDRs of new or recent releases. That's just plain bad for the few who are trying to make a living at melodic hard rock (about as lucrative a field as OJ Simpson football memorabilia!) Well, maybe not THAT bad, but if CD burning continues to run rampant, it may be soon. :( Bad for the labels and bad for the artists.

I can proudly say that in my collection of 1600 CDs, only 5 are CDRs: Bronz "Taken By Storm", Craaft self-titled from 1986, Frank Stallone's self-titled, 707 "Megaforce" and Automatic Man's debut. (The last two were never pressed on CD and were burnt from vinyl originals.)

If you truly want to support the scene and its players, you won't support the proliferation of still-in-print CDs on CDR.
