Back in the days before recordings, music was played live. Or on a music box, etc. But it was never a verbatim copy.
When records first came around, a lot of people were of the opinion that Music is meant to be played live, this recording shenanigans will never take
off, and if anything it will simply bring mundane and banal music to the masses. It will never be as glorious as live concerts.
And boy don't we pay a pretty penny for any recording from that era.
I know it won't be the same in 200 years when someone goes "Coh, look at this Bruce, a genuine tweet, still with the url attached."
But at least someone is thinking. as Wrabbit says, this is a new era. We're making footsteps and while we think the boots are big and we're capable
of wearing them, they are but starters on this very long journey.
