Re: [ARSCLIST] A Change in CD marketing?
I just went over to their site.I had no idea who they were,to me Archiv means them silver label DGG Lps.I was browsing through their DVDs,and I see a bunch I would like to buy,but it really would add up,and I don't have the money.The retail store is dead.Long live the web.This is not news.What's this with The King's Singers ? There are 100s of their CDs on eBay,at $1.99-$5.99 a pop,with no takers.
