My own company, Orange Mountain Music, is putting out the original Candyman album as an LP. I said to the guys, “Who the hell is buying this?” They said, “Oh, a lot of people. They want LPs.” There’s that, too. It’s a rather complex situation. Some people don’t care about it, other people want the object.

We’re talking about a rather complex picture, in terms of a marketplace. If you had to make a map of that marketplace, it would look like a map of Paris, or Tokyo. The map would be a very complex map. Where you can’t find yourself. That’s not so bad.

But, in the end, that’s probably what’s going to save us. It’s complicated to describe the typical musical consumer. There are enough people on the planet, all doing it in different ways, so that somehow you’re going to make a living off of it.
