  6. Vinyl/download-only releases

    I almost always prefer cd. Most new vinyl is mastered from digital sources. So you basically are purchasing a cd that will play on a turntable -- I am not interested in that at all. An all-analog vinyl release (with download code) of new music from the right artist might get my attention, but these days such a release is probably prohibitively expensive to produce. I also do not mind downloading so long as the material is made available in a redbook cd resolution download. I am not really into hi res 24/96 resolution -- I just want cd quality. Sometimes, depending on the artist, the difference in price between downloading on Bandcamp and purchasing a cd makes a difference. Sometimes, for me, downloading wins against a higher priced cd and shipping costs (so long as the download is available in redbook cd quality). I passed on the recent Sonny Clark Trio because it was available on cd from Japan with, I believe, all of the material on the lps. However, the Sonny Clark is an all-analog affair. If I found that at a good price (not $40.00), I might purchase it. I love the picture of Sonny on cover of that lp release. As you stated, the Wilkins is available from Japan on cd. I understand loyalties, but it is available on cd at the click of the mouse so I understand the decision not to put out another cd version of that release. Lately, I've purchased more cds from CD Japan than from any other vendor.
