Letter: CDs: not such a high price to pay

Sir: Such a blatant misconception as Tom Heightman's claim (Letters, 1 July) that the retail price of CD albums has more than doubled in the last ten years, cannot remain uncorrected.

In March 1987, High Street retailers like us were selling the Top 40 CD albums for pounds 9.99. Today, ten years later, we charge between pounds 11.99 and pounds 13.99, which represents a 20 per cent to 40 per cent increase - hardly the 100 per cent which Mr Heightman claims.

Where on earth is he buying his CDs?
