DISC COMPACT: Last week, you might recall, we coughed politely as the UK Music Industry (in the form of the BPI and Music Week) slapped itself on the back and preened that only some of their Cds were more expensive than the same item in Europe. We pointed out that that's still loads more than they are in the US. Well, this week, the labels and the US government have come to a payment schedule after the agreement that the record companies won't any more use their near-quinopoly to keep prices in North America artificially high. So, to make it simple for the people at Chrysalis: We're paying more in the UK for items in the US that are officially recognised as being overpriced. Tell us why we should be happy.
