Amazing how they thought that having everything under one roof and with no backups, not even digital, of all those rare and one off recordings was a good idea.

“ It costs about $2,500 to $3,000 to take an analog master and convert it to high-resolution digital audio. They didn’t want to spend the money.”

Hmmm.. it’s not like music industry is short of money fercryinoutloud.

Re: Universal Music Group Master Tapes Burned

That sort of thing can be put into plastic crates with a decent sprinkler in place.

I also think that it surely must be cheaper to have a few people patrolling a building with priceless artifacts (or an historic building) than let the building catch fire without anyone noticing. With wi-fi or 4g these days it must be easy to have remote sensors in places where it is difficult to run cables or pipework, just like they would with an alarm system. With an immediate repsonse, even if it is just turning a tap on, then less damage would be done.

Basically you’re saying, and I totally agree, that nowadays there is no excuse for this sort of thing happening.
