Re: 7"s

I think that 7"s are great.  They're really good for getting to know
new bands.  In the way that 7"s don't require much commitment and are
relatively cheap.  I epecially like splits because I'll buy them for one
artist and get exposed to another.  I love the idea of B-sides, too.  I
think it gives a band more room to experiment.  Plus, pretty much everything 
sounds better on vinyl.
