efM  Back On the 'Bleeding Edge' With New "Digital Albums"
We've just moved into our new Internet "home" using ".NET" server technology in our continuing to effort to better serve the folk music community. Most of the changes are "under the hood", but we've got to toot our tuba about the new Digital Albums. Just like 1999, when we started selling mp3s to people who had never heard of them, we once again have a good idea that someone will make a killing on in about five years.
     Artists can now offer collections of downloadable tracks with artwork and production notes as a "Digital Album" (DA) at a special package price, usually around $10 for a CD-length album.  Upon purchase, the tracks are placed in your "Music Locker" for download anytime.
   In addition to making current and formerly out-of-print albums available for instant download, efM artists can create and publish DAs from any collection of recorded tracks. We hope that by lowering the bar for "album" publishing that we can increase the flow" of music from artists to fans. We've always believed in the advantages of digital music delivery, and this is just one more way for artists to stay in "high touch" with fans.
     Stay tuned as we build our collection of DAs!

P.S. Not to worry, we still sell MP3s by the track, as we have since 1999
