What's a distribution deal?

Record shop
You need one of these to get your CDs into the shops.

This might just be a deal with the record company or when you've recorded a CD yourself and are looking for someone to put it out into the big wide world.

Sometimes deals are made where the artist actually takes a load of boxes of homemade CDs to the distributor for sending out to shops.
