An imaginary exercise to begin the year

Let’s say you’ve bought a particular CD. Let’s say you like the band (which might be referred to as The Last Monthists) and the album (which might be referred to as An Avian Marriage), and you want to buy all of the band’s songs. Let’s say there’s one song by the band that’s available only in a relatively low-resolution mp3 and only if you re-buy the entire CD you already bought, and another available only in a limited edition version of the CD apparently sold only at a now-defunct chain of stores.

Let’s say you download those tracks here instead and donate the money you would have spent on the redundant, low-resolution digital album to a charity the band’s songwriter has been known to favor.
