I'm a luddite, what can I say?
There are some bands I still insist on buying hard copies from. Like mewithoutYou.
I wonder a lot about how the packaging might have changed thanks to digitial everything. I used to really like looking through the cover booklet on a CD case and always felt jipped when the band didn't go all out on it. ...or give lyrics...
Have you found a big difference in quality or quantity of the work put into that sort of thing now that everything is digital?
