I guess my question is this: is it good that its all about the music? Or, will there be something missed without liner notes? Without that special font that says Duran Duran on a nicely-designed cover? thanks, Jack.
ACTUALLY JACK, WE ARE ALL INCLINED TO AGREE WITH YOU REGARDING THE DEMISE OF PACKAGING, ALTHOUGH IT WOULD BE EASY TO ARGUE THAT WE ARE ALL BETTER OFF WITHOUT MORE PHYSICAL STUFF - WE ARE HELPING TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE BY NOT CUTTING DOWN ANYMORE TREES TO MANUFACTURE THE PRODUCT. AT THE SAME TIME, WE DO MISS THE FORMAT OF VINYL AND SUSPECT WE MAY EVEN FEEL THE SAME ABOUT CDS ONE DAY. IT WILL HOWEVER, REMAIN ESSENTIAL TO US THAT WE CONTINUE TO PRODUCE ARTWORK, PHOTOGRAPHY, LINER NOTES, CREDITS AND ALL NUMBER OF OTHER EPHEMERA WITH OUR SONGS. OBVIOUSLY MUCH OF IT WILL BE AVAILABLE VIA DOWNLOAD, BUT WE HOPE WE WILL BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO PRODUCE SPECIAL EDITIONS OF PRODUCT WHERE BY WE CHOSE THE CARDBOARD, PLASTIC, SILK, RUBBER AND INK THAT GOES IN TO MAKING A BEAUTIFUL PACKAGE.
