Saddle Creek Records are launching a new scheme which means that if you buy one of their releases on vinyl you also get a code which allows you to
download all the tracks on the record as MP3. The programme, which will begin with an upcoming release from Two Gallants, recognises that it’s hard
for vinyl junkies to get the music they buy onto their iPod.
The label’s Jason Kulbel explains: “We are fans of both vinyl and listening to music on our iPods, and the two don’t work very well together. The only
real options are to record it and put it on your computer – pain! – or file share/download an ‘illegal’ copy of a record you already own.”
