Because I like him, too!!!
I have one Lettermen CD, a (10) Track Hits type, by EMI-Capitol or CEMA. I recently came across a Capitol Collector's Series (I think) CD, with more songs. But, you're correct, I haven't seen any individual albums on CD. I chalk it up to them being enjoyed by the adult contemporary crowd. But then again, it could be Capitol Records misplaced their recorded tapes :-)
Jim added: Labels estimate that 20% of Greatest Hits buyers, go on to buy at least one other CD by the act.
I sometimes, who is it, The Shirelles?, have to buy 2-3 CDs of Hit compilations, from various companies, JUST to get the sound quality and Stereo I appreciate. With Downloadable music, that may change things for individual album releases, since manufacturing, packaging and distribution would not be necessary. The way I "hear" it, CD sales are in a slump.
Jim also wrote: I wondered about that. I thought they when you came to place the order, they were offering to either supply the vinyl + CD if you did not have the vinyl, or else, asking you to send them the vinyl, and they would cut the CD from it, or from their own copy if yours was not up to scratch. (Excuse pun). Did I get it wrong?
The way I read it, if you already had the (vinyl) LP, you were entitled to a copy on CD. You supplied nothing, other than money, and the "charge" isn't for the music, but for the service. It's the same game that has been playing for many a year.
