LONDON (Billboard) - The global recorded music market fell for the seventh consecutive year in 2006, and the slide is accelerating in 2007, according to figures published by a music trade group.
Sales fell 5% year-over-year to $19.6 billion, said the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), a London-based group that represents the major record labels.
Why don’t price the CD more reasonably and quit putting out the toxic sewage. Maybe then the sales will rise. :rolleyes:
As for me, the music I listen to (classica) usually cost less since I buy it it sets.
