CIMS Weekly Chart: Week Ending 5/19/17

Week Ending 5/19/2017
I would like to thank everyone who met with us last week at the Music Biz Convention. The meetings were generally productive, and it’s always good to get a glimpse of future releases. Honestly, the release schedule for the summer looks pretty good, and I hope our pleas to spread strong releases throughout the year and not just rely on a spring and fourth-quarter release schedule are being heard.
Also, the Physical Action Committee met with six different management firms to stress the importance of physical goods in the age of streaming. Thanks to everyone on that committee and to those of you who took the time to meet with us.

Next up is the annual Record Store Day Summer Camp in New Orleans in late August. Hope to see many of you there.
