Try to make the magic last

By now anyone paying even the remotest attention here and elsewhere in the Brown Brothers universe knows our predilection for physical over virtual media.  Here’s another entry in that swimming-upstream effort.  Back in 2008 Elvis Costello released a solid-if-unspectacular album called Momofuku.  One gorgeous highlight is the song Flutter and Wow, one of his most earnest love songs. The album came with a dowload card because the appearance of offering convenience and being technologically current seems to matter to some folks. The card was only valid for part of 2008.

We’re still listening, enjoying and learning from the beautiful lp.  How many people can say the same about digital copies of the record?
