A group of major record labels has announced plans to begin releasing albums in a a ‘DualDisc’ format with CD on one side and DVD on the other. The DVD side may include a higher quality version of the album along with special video, photo and other multimedia (gotta love catchall identifiers) content. I’ve been saying for awhile (to myself mostly) that the record labels need to produce more compelling and diverse content to get people more interested in buying their product. You may be able to get the music itself for free, but the album as a whole may still be worth shelling out the cash. Hopefully they’re not going to be idiotic and charge more for the DualDisc versions.
