This latest album on our mat is "Camilla" from Caroline Herring which is rather a good listen, with Kathryn Roberts and Mary Chapin Carpenter in various harmonies on some songs, it may well be a candidate for a future classic. Although this particular album now seems to be available on CD in the UK, some albums are only available as a download like her "The Little House Songs" album was - ordering directly from the labels is something that maybe a necessity to get hold of the more 'obscure' albums, with P&P added making it even more expensive. Yet even some of the labels seem to be going down this download route.
Is it possible that once the music industry has maybe decided that releasing on CD is no longer viable will the price of downloads up to CD price levels - thereby restoring their gravy train back on track or will this just make for more illegal downloading?
Sadly buying online is fast becoming the only real way for collectors to get hold of the none chart releases - I noticed the other day that the CD rack in our local superstore has been moved to the back of the isle and the choice of music was poor indeed. Even more sad the nearest decent music shop is now a train ride away for me - a real shame!!!

Finally got around to buying "Time Cuts The Ties" by Dropkick - nice one and found that you can get their back catalogue at good prices from their own label site at http://www.tayloredrecords.co.uk/
...and Yes, CDs are still available!!!
