CD’s that are accompanied by bonus DVD’s have been around for a while, but now I’m concerned by another development. DVD’s with bonus music. As a matter of fact I have mentioned this before in the case of the Queens of the Stoneage live DVD.
DVD’s don’t interest me much, as I don’t have a TV and watching live shows in front of my PC is not my idea of fun. But along comes Jeff Tweedy…
My love for all things Wilco has also already been documented on mainlyrock.com, so one thing came to another. Jeff Tweedy has just brought out a DVD (Jeff Tweedy : Sunken treasure (Live)) documenting a some solo accoustic shows he did “in the pacific Northwest”. I could have done without the DVD, but:
The audio tracks of all the songs featured on the DVD also will be available for anyone who purchases Sunken Treasure to download for free.
So I have indeed bought the DVD, to have access to the audio downloads… Which technically is the first time I have actually paid for downloaded music files. Eventually I will also find the opportunity to watch the DVD, just like I did for the Wilco Film.
