I read last week that CD sales are down over 45% in the last 9 years.
No doubt, the shift to “downloading music” has changed the industry — forever.
I have active accounts with iTunes and eMusic. I prefer the pricing on eMusic (between .41 and .54 cents per track depending on the plan you choose) vs iTunes (.79 to $1.29 per track).
The only downside to eMusic is, (or maybe was), their limited catalog of artists.
Well… that has changed in a BIG WAY.
eMusic just added, over 10,000 albums!
It’s a colossal new addition to the eMusic catalog! Whatever music you’re into there’s a lot to be excited about, with more than 10,000 NEW titles from labels including Warner Bros., Atlantic Records, Nonesuch, Rhino, Roadrunner, Epitaph, and Rykodisc.
Including classics from the Cure, Echo & the Bunnymen, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Aretha Franklin and the Talking Heads.
Plus new albums from the Flaming Lips, Built to Spill and the Dead Weather. And Jazz essentials from Brad Mehldau, John Coltrane and the MJQ.
They promise to add even more titles in the coming weeks – so check back regularly to see what’s new.
If you have not checked out eMusic yet, now is the time!
