Trolling around the interwebs and came across Bob Dylan’s The Witmark Demos 1962-1964 (The Bootleg Series, Vol. 9) for just $1.29 for digital download through his website.
That’s 47 tracks for $1.29. That’s less than 3 cents a track. I don’t know if this is a mistake from Sony, or not. On Amazon, the download sells for $19.99.
Now, here’s the conundrum:
- If you’re a fan of Bob Dylan, you’ve already purchased the CD (it was released in October).
- If you’re not a fan of Bob Dylan, Sony would have to pay you at least 3 cents a track to download it.
However, if you’re in the middle …
- if you’re a fan, but not so much that you purchased it the first time around;
- if you don’t need the booklet or liner notes but are curious about listening to acoustic cuts from Dylan at the time;
- if you’re a sucker for bargains and want to brag about how you took Sony for some music, this is for you.
