    Time Code

    Is Pat Moraz's Time Code album available to purchase as a digital download anywhere that sells to people in the United States? Just looking for the digital download, I don't do physical music formats anymore.

    I know asking about a semi-controversial Pat Moraz solo album is weird coming from someone who ranks Relayer fairly low in his list of Yes albums from best to worst, but I heard a song or two from Time Code and seems right up my alley, with plenty of 80s goodness tbat may have caused his regular fan base to rate it poorly, but sounded just right to me based on the parts I heard- like the only Pat Moraz solo album that I've ever had any interest in.

    Unfortunately, they don't seem to sell it in the format I currently buy and listen to my music in. I even, since apparently they don't want to sell it to me through a reputable outfit, checked in a file sharing type thing (Only because it was not available to buy) and no one on that thing even had it to make available!

    It's weird to see things go out of print as paid downloads, because they don't require the website or publisher selling through the site to spend money printing more copies. They just let you download files and take your money. You'd think they'd just leave everything in print as a paid download. If the problem is that keeping everything in print would clog up search results and prevent people from finding the more popular stuff they are probably looking for, create a website for the more obscure stuff that people can check for things that otherwise would be out of print digitally when they don't come up on Amazon and other sites.

    This is part of why I don't have a regular steaming service. With paid downloads, when I've got them, I've got them, as long as multiple hard drives don't fail at once. With a streaming service, stuff can disappear as it goes out of print or because of a business disagreement between the streaming service and the label. Of course, getting to keep what you buy is only really a helpful thing when you can find what you're looking for to begin with.
    "A lot of the heavier conversations I was having with Chris toward the end were about his desire for this thing to go forward. He kept reiterating that to me. [...] He kept telling me, 'No matter what happens, Yes needs to continue moving forward and make great music. So promise me that that's something you want to do.'. And I have to keep making music. It's just what I do. [...] I'm a fan of the band and I want to see it thrive and that means new music." -Billy Sherwood
