If you're paying a band $1.50 per copy of an LP limited to 1000, would it make sense if possible to pay them in advance?

That's what I would do.


Well, it depends on the band if they are worth to pay that much. Usually I would give 10% of the pressing. If they only want money and lets say one copy each member you have to do that (i.e. to get the rights and masters etc.).

This used to be my actual full time job. (And believe me when you have dealt with the mess that is Dead Kennedys royalties you can deal with anything!)

For smaller labels it isn't so relevant as deals are bashed out between the band and label as there is no legal framework (royalties, publishing etc.) so to speak.

I give 20% on my releases. I'm curious, do you lose much money by giving the bands 20% on vinyl releases as opposed to 10-15%. I understand the incremental difference, but is the monetary loss that noticeable?
