Radiohead’s New CD Leads Weekly Sales

Jeff Leeds. Radiohead Finds Sales, Even After Downloads. The New York Times. Jan. 10, 2008. Even after distributing its album online for as little as zero dollars, zero cents, Radiohead’s fans buy enough hard copies to make it the week’s sales leader. One difference (which makes a difference for folks like us) is the compact has better sound resolution. We’re willing to listen to MP3 files to get a sense of whether we’re willing to buy, but when we buy, we’ll buy for resolution and ownership. (First sale doesn’t apply to music downloads unless the license agreement specifically provides for it.)
