Two cents, because after paying $35-45 per import, that's about all that's left, eh? :) I hear you, BigHair. I'm also fortunate enough to live in the AOR tundra that is Canada. Without trying to come across as argumentative, I think $35-45 is a slight exaggeration. Maybe $20-25 for a standard MTM or AORHEAVEN release is more on point. For your Japanese stuff, yeah, definitely upwards of $30!

I think you've got the right attitude/idea with respect to CD-Rs. I would have no problem making my friend a sampler CD-R with different bands in hopes they would seek out the original CDs by the bands/artists they liked the most. Of course, my philosophy has always been to include good songs, but maybe not always the best songs from each particular CD. That way, they have something to look forward to. As well, they don't get their hopes up too high and think the whole CD is going to be as good as the song on the sampler.

My buddy sends out CD-R compilations to his mail order customers and gets them interested in bands they may have not otherwise heard. To me, that's healthy. But burning entire CDs start-to-finish and then asking around for artwork scans... that's where I start to take issue. Then when people start trading CDRs of 2000 releases, that's when I start fearing for the future of this genre!

Where in Canada do you live, BigHair and how many degrees below zero is it right now??

Stay warm, dude!
