DualDisc Artists Holding Top Spots

Press Release:  Perhaps signaling the end of one era and the beginning of a new one in physical music distribution, measurable sales and growing consumer enthusiasm for DualDisc have helped propel recent releases from Rob Thomas, Bruce Springsteen, Nine Inch Nails and Dave Matthews to the top of the Billboard charts for four straight weeks.

"DualDisc really seems to be electrifying the marketplace," says Fred Fox, Executive Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing for Trans World Entertainment Corporation, one of the largest specialty music and video retailers in the United States. "It's outperforming anything the labels have attempted in the last few years."

The new format capitalizes on the solid base of existing hardware (i.e., DVD players, car stereos, PCs, game consoles and CD players) and adds added value that consumers have been clamoring for at the current retail pricing. "By combining CD and DVD on a single two-sided disc, DualDisc capitalizes on the overwhelming popularity of DVD music videos, which have grown exponentially over the course of the past three years. Moreover, DualDisc meets consumer demand for greater versatility and value in entertainment products while providing artists with an innovative avenue for creative expression." It's still too soon to tell if the format will eventually replace regular CD's, but all of the major recording companies as well as independent companies are reportedly busy developing DualDiscs to meet the boost in consumer demand - more than 2 million discs and counting....
