Hits of the 70's - New FTD!?

Fri Sep 21, 2012 1:34 pm

Comes the CD "Hits Of The 70s" really as new FTD issue?

We really need this CD with bonus?

Do you really have to start a new topic for this?

Since it has been discussed to death in another thread. In other words: the discussion you try to start has already been discussed and there for the thread is superfluous.

And if it's not you, you are also forgiven :D General opinion was that some fans consider buying it but that it is not consider a very necessary FTD (which is an understatement).

It's not a problem. This will be the first FTD that I will consider not buying.

Consider being the key word here.

C'mon, Rob. Give in to temptation and buy it. That'll make two of us. Others will buy it as well, but perhaps they won't openly admit it for fear of being scorned.

I won't buy it. I won't buy it. I won't buy it. I won't buy it. I won't buy it. I won't buy it. I won't buy it. I won't buy it. I won't buy it.

on the humorous side of things, this will probably turn out to be FTD`s biggest seller :wink:

I think it would have worked if instead of the masters. They actually took time to pick the best versions & alternate takes of each song. Then we atleast get something new. But because those are just goin to be masters i really dont care for this FTD.

Hits of the 70's is a bummer in the FTD Catalogue

Again, one can make his own compilation of alternates, just like he can for the masters. This reissue seems more like an attempt by FTD to feel out the market to see if the label can issue pricey reissues of out-of-print compilations. If this release is heavily supported, FTD will quite possibly continue down this path. It's up to the consumer to decide if they want FTD to remain a collector's label aimed at releasing archival material or if they want Sony to transform it into a reissue vehicle.

interesting theory here midnightx and I don`t disagree, however I must say changes have been slowly occurring all along right before our very eyes! FACT - collector`s label is much different now (2012) then it`s beginning (1999) intentions were. With the decline of actual cd sales on the mainstream market, Sony very well might be thinking, "this is their back-up" plan! If there is any truth to this, I can`t say I`m shocked. The fact remains that if Sony wants this to be a collectors label and a reissue label (2 in 1) they will do it. Call it whatever you want or disguise it as well, the money goes to the same place!
