According to recent reports from the RIAA and pro audio journals, recordable CDs outsold pre-recorded music. According to the RIAA’s recent report the music industry sold just under 1 billion records in 2001 while 1.1 billion CDRs sold in 2001 – outselling prerecorded music for the first time ever. The RIAA alludes to downloadable music as the cause for their recent ills but computer storage and media cost are also significant factors in the popularity of CDRs. At 30 cents per disc when purchased in bulk, CDRs are currently the most affordable mass market recordable media. It wasn’t long ago that $10 zip discs were the king of the hill but a CDR has more than 10 times the storage space for a tiny fraction of the price.

2001 was one of the toughest years for recorded music ever with sales down over 10 percent representing an industry wide loss that was the worst in 20 years. Unfortunately, the Grammy’s represented much of what was wrong with popular music. Despite boom times for feature films and DVD-video sales, music slumped with a proliferation of boy bands and prepackaged pop garbage (and I don’t mean Shirley Manson).
