WHEN MAJOR LABEL EXECUTIVES SIT DOWN TO TALK


Just some of the notable notes from a Tuesday morning major label panel at NARM in San Diego:


"We've been really thrilled with the results of deluxe editions, both on digital and physical."
- Jennifer Schaidler, Sony Music.


"Listen-only on-demand is probably not something we see as a long-term solution."
- Mike Jbara, WEA Corp., speaking on Spotify.


"'If you're interested in transacting, and actually purchasing something, then serving it centrally makes more sense. Going to a P2P network is like buying drugs in a dodgy neighborhood.''
- Amanda Marks, Universal Music Group.


"I work in a department called 'music services'."
- Darren Stupak, EMI, on the shift in thinking happening within major labels.


"You're going to see more experimentation from artists that are not ready to do a full album."
- Jennifer Schaidler, Sony Music.
