Fantasy Records: An Archive of Many Lifetimes
But what they should really consider is, how can Concord become the Fantasy of digital delivery? How can a major catalogue utilize digital distribution to market and distribute their music? Verve and Blue Note are already doing it on I-Tunes and Rhapsody. The Verve Vaults on I-Tunes releases music from the Verve catalogue digitally. They just take the music and put it on a server, avoiding manufacturing costs. That allows them to release music that may never appear on CD.
I have some other "predictions" but I'll save them for future entries. In the meantime, a well deserved toast to Fantasy Records, and their archives. May people be listening to this music for an eternity.
