40 Days of Enough ... Day 6 - "In Rainbows"
I bought the CD version of "In Rainbows" on sale in WHSmith's on Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow; a good wee while after the CD was released. I think I picked it up for £5 or so.
I downloaded the album when Radiohead did their whole 'pay what you want' experiment and absolutely loved it ... in fact, I credit this album as being the catalyst for my love of Radiohead ... it opened the door. I didn't pay for album when I legitimately downloaded it and always regretted it afterwards. I rectified the situation a while later when I bought it on CD.
The CD comes with stickers that would allow you to create a copy and create another sleeve. I don't intend on doing this ... I am tempted to put the stickers on my MacBook Pro but, to date, haven't succumbed to this temptation.
This CD reminds me that 'pay what you want' can and does work ... albeit not on the level of Radiohead's experiment. My netlabel is founded on 'pay what you want' and has been in the black for a good while now. People support good music. I know this because I support good music ... and as long as I am my own target market, I won't go far wrong.
