I got this somewhat shocking bit of news in my inbox from Greater Vision the other day:
Our Record Company recently announced they would be discontinuing some of our most popular CD Titles from their inventory So… we went to Nashville and picked up all they had, and we’re making them available to you! Once these are gone, they’re gone!
This Clearance Special includes these CDs…”Faces”, “Quartets”, and “Live At First Baptist Atlanta”. These CDs include some of our most-popular songs, like “He’d Still Been God”, “Faces”, “With All The Many Miracles”, “It Is Well With My Soul”, “He Is To Me”, “A Pile Of Crowns”, “Just Ask”, “Soon We Will See”, and MORE! 37 Songs in all! A $45 Value.
This is very puzzling to me. Why on earth would the record company discontinue the albums containing Greater Vision’s most popular songs? Quite frankly, this is disgraceful. Our best southern gospel artists deserve better than to have their best-loved music pulled off the shelf.
As a bonus, GV is throwing in the Live at Oak Tree DVD/CD combo. All CDs and the DVD are being packaged together for only $20. That sounds like a pretty good deal to me. Get it here while supplies last. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Is anyone else ticked off about this? Because I’m pretty ticked off. It’s one thing to pull an old album with songs nobody knows. This is another thing altogether. [Update: Brian has pointed out that these albums are probably still available digitally, and in fact Amazon mp3 is still offering them. This does mitigate my ticked-offedness, because I had assumed they were not available digitally.]
