Tony Sachs and Sal Nunziato had a good op-ed in the New York Times yesterday about how the record companies made decisions that sowed the seeds of destruction for their industry over the past ten years or so. What they leave out, though, is a look at the bigger picture. Plenty of good music is being performed, recorded, and distributed these days. It’s easier for me to find music that I might like than it has ever been. The means available to access and expand my music collection are only expanding. The music industry may be in trouble, but music itself seems to be just fine.
