Another Reason Why CDBaby Rules
They’re now selling mp3s of all their artists music. For the same price as a CD you get LAME encoded 200k VBR mp3s, a jpg of the CD cover, and a text file with the liner notes. The artists keeps 91% of these sales. In my case this is slightly more expensive for you than buying from my store (UPDATE: I stand corrected – of course you can change the prices dummy. Their prices now match my store.), and there doesn’t seem to be a way of getting individual mp3s yet, but I think it’s still a pretty sweet service to offer. Yet another example of why it’s a great time to be an independent musician.
