Roseanne Cash said the following in front of Congress:
"For example, for an 18 month period, there were nearly 600,000 streams of my songs on a popular subscription site. I was paid $114.00 for those streams."
I know, it's too late, and artists are out of luck. Whatever, I still want the physical set.
Like you, I will likely also get the physical set. I have spotify premium too, but I mostly use it to find albums I would like to buy, or for streaming at work. I just can't put enough albums on my iPhone to listen to while at work. I never like to delete things in case I want to listen to them later. I have the whole Julian Bream set on my iPhone, the Pepe Romero Master of the Guitar set, along with a number of other sets and compilations.
Nothing like having those physical disks for the excellent sound quality and to enjoy them for life. The problem with Spotify and these services is that at any time they could remove some of these sets from the service and then you would be out of luck, like netflix does with movies from time to time as their licenses run out. It's certainly a good way to sample new artists though.
I still use iTunes to buy things when I am bored and just thinking of something new that spotify doesn't have.
I am excited for the Williams set now! Get it when it first comes out! Before the price goes up! The Julian Bream set went up in price substantially after a few months past its release date.
