Not sure of the reason in your argument Ian- at least in the context of R.S! To slag Spotify is one thing- it deserves it (though I'm not entirely sure that artists see nothing in return from their material appearing on it? Please enlighten me) But to suggest that it should therefore be streamed here on HH doesn't add up- JC would surely then lose income from fans! As for Spotifiers getting Cope for free- how many exactly do you think there will be?? Maybe a few will hear it who would never have otherwise!

Anyway thanks to Spotify JC will have one more purchaser in me..I'm skint and can't afford the luxury of buying albums indiscriminately


The pocket change he will get from Spotify as opposed to streaming it here (if only for a limited period or as a one off playback on Soundcloud) is going to be really insignificant. Artists (even some fairly well known ones) see next to nothing from these streaming services. Writers get even less. If people listen to your entire album 1500 times you might (at a pinch) see the equivalent income from one cd sale. Seems to me this rewards the wrong people. And this is coming from someone who wants to buy it. Anyway ... moan over.
