If I think about that too much I may want to set something on fire... Just the arrogant stupidity and selfishness of so many companies it unbelievable. Great, if mind-boggling, link.

Record companies...

Not being in the record business, I don't know. But I would believe it to be true. I once checked out the Janis Ian website. The info there seems to correlate with the linked article's information regarding how record companies deal.

Just look at RIAA!

I would be willing to bet that a thorough investigation would reveal that the reason behind this is nothing more than total incompetence...lol. I am sure that everyone wants a sinister explanation, but I would bet against it.

Thanks NC

I always knew from friends that it was "impossible" to make money on your first album or two but had never seen the math.

The article also references this article from Steve Albini which is interesting too:
