The only thing that makes buying these worthwhile is the artwork from the original US sleeves. The down side is the unit cost. And with the low numbers selling each week, it's pretty obvious it is the true collectors that are making the purchases. There's been no real marketing from BMG, no giveaways as prizes on radio stations, and no radio plays. Whereas last time there was a real momentum in getting to the record shop early enough to secure a copy (and suffering frustration too), this time it seems like a bit of a chore. I wonder out of the 10,000 or so sold each week if that is split between both CD and vinyl. Last time, unit sales were around 27,500 on average. So questions to ask.
1) Are you buying both versions?
2) Has anyone given up half way through?
3) Were more discs being bought by "joe public" last time, or are less fans buying this time around?
My answers are:
1) No, not this time - CD's only
2) I've thought about it on several occasions - I seem to buy the only stocked item in my local Woolworths as I think they only get 1 in. They started with 5 copies and by the 3rd week, this had dropped to 1.
3) "Joe Public" probably bought more discs, many of which ended up on ebay for a quick killing. I also think that there are fewer fans buying this time.
