Re: SPAM! Cash needed buy music!



Don't know about the vinyl's status in the US but got some related
information to share:

I sold some CDs at indoors venue gigs in USA back in October. But I do
sell more CDs here in Stockholm when playing out as a street busker...
but the interesting thing is that many of my in the street CD buyers
are from other countries; like Russia, Holland, Germany, France and a
bunch of asian countries (except for the Chinese, they rarely buy
CDs).



Greetings from Sweden
