Looks like Prince has upset a lot of people today. For anyone not aware, Prince's new album, "Planet Earth" will be on the front cover of the Mail on Sunday today. Sony BMG have gone nuts about it apparently, and Paul Quirk, co-chairman of the Entertainment Retailers Association said "It is an insult to all those record stores who have supported Prince throughout his career".
Call me a cynic if you must, but I think what Quirk said actually translates to "we're going to lose profit margins now because we can't sell it with a mark-up". One thing is for sure, MoS sales are going to go up today. Even lots of lefties might buy it with their noses held.
