Why sales of CDs are falling, part 2

This medium is losing ground to digital files downloaded one at a time to be heard on MP2 players. And why should anyone pay for a long list of recordings, many of dubious value or no interest, when only one item is wanted. One downloadable song is the equivalent of a 45rpm single of days gone by. There are decent compilations on CD by artists such as Otis Redding or some on the old Fania label; we see them at the drugstore, for sale very cheaply, where we go for our junky magazines in Spanish.
