Interesting point:  the recent price reductions osn some popular music
(particularly rock/pop) by some retailers specifically did *not* apply
to the classical repetoire.  Also:  while rock/pop sales are way down
from, say, five years ago, "urban" (hip-hop, etc.) and classical sales
are both strong.

...otherwise, thanks for the info, Doug.
