No Darklands either. This game consumed a lot of nights during high school. Super customizable characters and gameplay for that time. I'm trying to find a copy that I can run on DosBox or something similar.
T-shirts, posters, and other non-media merch has a better profit margin for bands. Shirts normally cost 3-6 bucks to make and they can easily sell them for 10-15 dollars. CDs and records have normally only a 1-2 dollar mark up. When you're on tour, taking shirts are a lighter load when space is tight. I'm not saying don't bring/sell cds, but shirts will normally outsell CDs when you're touring.
I know this only applies to about 1% (if that) of the market, but I have mainly purchased records in the past 2 years. Discographies have been the only CD I have bought, which normally contain out of print materials. I have noticed even some of the bigger retailers, like Best Buy, starting to carry LPs again. The great thing about LPs is that they normally come with a digital download coupon.
