— Return To Sender: BMG Music Has Been Discontinued
I vividly remember being a member of Colombia House’s version of this until I realized that I was being ripped off. It was not a happy realization, but one that I acted on immediately, cancelling the service and sending an angry letter to an editor somewhere.
One of the last times that I bought a CD too. From that point on it was copied tapes and then copied cds and now onto mp3s, which oddly enough are legally free. God bless Amazon’s free mp3 section and bands like NiN and Harvey Danger.
