    Why can't we buy physical albums and download MP3's at the same time?

    Not sure what the legality of "illegally" downloading an album if you own the real CD.. Sometimes I download an album just to save ripping it :P

    and why are mp3s so expensive a new release is only bout £2 cheaper then the cd i would rather jus spend £2 more for the cd but when i buy a cd i usally jus listen to it on youtube till it arrives but sometimes i might download it if i already ordered it

    a new release album is usally around £9 for the cd and to buy the mp3 its £7.99 thats expensive i would expect the mp3 for bout £5 but if u were to buy a old album almost all the time the mp3 is more expensive

    you buy an older cd and its generally more expensive ynless its been re-released at mid price......because they aint getting no bulk discount........

    why would you expect the mp3 be £5 if the cd is £9?

    4 quid for cd and paper?

    no thats set by the retailer.......occasionally the label may do a promotion or re-release an album at mid price/budget but that is usually to do with invigorating more sales
