Changes in Revenue

“In 1983, CDs made the US record industry just $17.2 million. In 1984, that figure would jump to $103.3 million – an increase of more than 500 percent.”

From the book, Appetite For Self-Destruction, by Steve Knopper.

Some ten years in to the post-Napster era, I agree that there is no obvious, fatted-cash-cow on a silver platter.

Either way, hopefully some of us are still here for the music.
