“I believe you have misunderstood. We’re not talking about full length CDs that happen to have only one song on them but a special CD that is capable of holding only one song.”
Why bother with a one song cd. The cd singles that are going around now days are much better than that. Besides who will want to pay $2.00 for a short version of a popular song. Sell them at $0.50 then maybe I’ll buy em.
As Arnold Winkelried said
“Nowadays, CD “singles” are released on regular-size CD’s containing only 1 or two songs (or 5 different “remixes” of the same song.)”
True except these cd singles are more like the 12inch vinyl records singles. Which themselves were much better than the 45 because they offered more for a lower price compare to an album. Besides not all of them offer only remixes, but also rare cuts, or live preformances that you will not find anywhere. This the same for the cd singles Now days including video, and other features you can use on your computer CD rom player.
Very often you can find them for $1.99. Check with K-mart, and Walmart besides the big music chains. I suggest you buy two of the same if you can. Because they are becoming collectors items, and you can resale them at a later time. Because their value goes up. Since they do become rare items.
From what I seen so far black artist don’t offer much in music for their cd singles. Just the radio edit also another song usually a lame filler song, or a short remix.
Another thing that is out. Which sucks, is small sample of songs from the album. Avoid those. Why pay to sample the music when you can go online and hear the same amount for free.
