Kathleen Edwards Among Others With Dual Disc

Published: 2004-02-06
In what has to be a history making event, all five of the major record labels are in agreement and have begun releasing dual CD/DVDs to test markets. Kathleen Edwards and the Barenaked Ladies are among the artists with a dual disc release. The new dual disc contains the standard CD on one side and high resolution 5.1 channel mix on the other. Rounder Records has begun releasing what they term DVD Plus where documentary films from the American Masters catalog has the DVD on one side and the audio soundtrack from the film on the other.

Sony developed the dual disc technology as a way to entice music fans back to purchasing CDs instead of downloading and sharing music files. No mention was made as to whether the new dual disc CDs would be more expensive than the standard CD.
