    Hah, I figured it would be this! Are you going to keep on with the No-CD format for new releases?

    Let's see how we go. CDs are a dying medium and don't sound as good as the FLAC files we have on this, and the larger booklet is a lot nicer than a little CD sized one so there's a lot of positives for how we're doing this. But we know a lot of people really hate changing how they prefer to buy things, so this is a good experiment to see how we move forward.

    Interesting idea! I must say, I still buy CDs but end up listening to the rips way more frequently than the actual disk. I like having a cover though so I can feel like I own the product, so this is in line with that.

    Yeah, I'm the same - I really don't like getting a digital release and feeling like "That's it? Just a data file?" but at the same time, I have no space to keep CDs, I just rip them anyway, and if I could get a 24 bit HD master rather than the 16 bit CD, I'd prefer that. I reckon this is a pretty good compromise!

    Yeah, I like the idea... I think it'll work well as a in intermediary between CDs and Full Digital age, a la cassettes ended up being for Vinyl/Cass./CD.

    Re: bog post, I've had APJ for a long time now (signed even, I'm pretty sure) and you'll see from my signature that it's actually a favourite of mine :) So yes, I'm one of those two with my hand up :D

    I'm one of those people who will (eventually) struggle to let go of the CD format. I'm a huge collector so I think for my selfish personal tastes, I would probably be pushing for a CD format for the next release (and to be honest, the majority of our sales through our webstore are still CDs). We'll see how the market looks though when it comes time to put finishing touches on the next album :)

    This is how I feel. I have a massive CD collection and would hate to see the CD format die off completely. I do agree though that finding storage space for hundreds/thousands of CDs (I dread to think of how many I actually own) is a nightmare.

    I would buy a CD over a digital download every single time. There's just something about picking an album up randomly based on the band name and artwork that I can't picture doing with a download. It's just not the same... but maybe I'm clinging onto the past.

    Andy/LT - I think Ginger Wildheart has got a pretty good grasp on the current day music sales model. Have you ever checked him and his methods out?

    EDIT - That said, I have bought the new version of A Personal Journey :)

    ... and thank you!

    I still buy a few CDs per year, but mostly only of local bands. I really don't listen to music in that format, but it just feels 'right' to collect the item sometimes.

    I've bought one USB key release, a various artists compilation which was kind of a sequel to a compilation that featured a couple of my tracks. Still not sure where to put it, haha.

    I hate to cite Wikipedia but there's a pretty good overview of it here - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ginger_(musician)

    Or alternatively a Google search of Ginger Wildheart Pledge Music or Ginger Wildheart G.A.S.S. will give you an idea (that or it seems any recent interview with him)

    By the way, if you've never checked out The Wildhearts please give their debut Earth vs The Wildhearts a listen. One of England's best kept secrets in my opinion.

    Maybe we need to create a USB storage shelf!

    Actually the way the APJ-Revisited thing works is pretty cool. It's A5 sized and the USB is flat like a credit card, and fits inside the booklet, so you could store it on your bookshelf. :)

    I like emails! But damn it... EVERY TIME I buy something I always forget I've got a voucher from the last thing I bought. I should really save them somewhere heh. :eek:

    A little more slick than the original, I'd say. ;)

    True, but I still love the charm of the original that I've had since it came out :D
