>Similarly, Benny Goodman's 1955 album Get Happy, on the Capitol Records label, is $7.99 (£6.29) on Google Play and Amazon, alongside a Pickwick Group copy which sells for $6.99 (£5.50).
Many years ago, I worked a summer in a vinyl pressing plant doing mostly Pickwick releases, which did pressings of masters or repackages the major labels had deleted. Artists usually do get some money from those, but the rates are deeply discounted compared to front line label releases. In the digital streaming age, whoever owns the rights to the original recording should be the source for all streaming. Publishing rights holders too.
To be historically accurate the accounting for who streamed what is much better than accounting for physical vinyl product ever was. Artists and writers were likely more ripped off in the old days, as more and more people become accustomed to paying for music now after the Wild West of the early internet.
