What the Heck is a Digital Album
don't do the best job of 'splaining ourselves, and as we continue to
"invent the wheel", so to speak, we're trying to do better. A few folks
have asked about the "Digital
Album" or "DA"- here's the poop:
DA is a downloadable collection of songs/tracks in MP3 format (192kbps or
better, very high quality)- often artists release a downloadable version
of their CDs, both new releases and more "seasoned" titles. These usually
are identical in content to the CD (with artwork and liner notes), but
sometimes they have bonus material or they may not have all tracks from
the physical album (often a rights issue). They are usually cheaper than
the CD, and you can download immediately or at any time in the future (we
record all your purchases in your own "Music Locker" (in your account
area) so that you can download (and re-download)
One of the nice features is that artists can
offer ANY collection of tracks, package it with art work and liner notes,
and self-publish as a DA. There are lot's of stray songs out in the world,
we aim to create a valuable digital resource for artists and listeners-
this is a low bar for artists to jump over to get "published" and
available world-wide, makes efM a real "music service".
Pretty slick, in a folksy sort of way.
Not iTunes smooth, but functional, easier in ways. Try
one out, we're getting quite a collection- Here are the latest
releases, some very interesting stuff.
While You're Clarifying....What about the MP3
Glad you asked.
(MPK) is another efM invention (we did invent the Internet
and the MP3 already, no need to explain). It's an
easier and cheaper way to buy MP3 songs, by purchasing a number of
"credits" that allow you to download any MP3 tracks on the site. Say you
buy a 10-track MPK, for $8.97- first off, your per-track price has gone
down from the single MP3 price of 98 cents, to 89 cents (save more with a
20-pack, for just $14.97), and you don't have to go through the shopping
cart until your credits are used up. And they don't expire, use them
Very easy- once you've bought
the MPK, the MP3 singles pages will tell you how many credits you have on
account, you can download tracks in a click (OK, maybe 3), ala carte, get
just what you want. And like all digital purchases, you can go to your
music locker anytime if you've lost a track. Very modern, we thought of it
How Green Can You Get?
Make any digital
purchase on efolkMusic, scour our database for artist gigs, folk
festivals, folk radio shows, have your way with us, and we PROMISE not to
burn a drop of carbon. OK, some electricity, but no driving around pushing
packages of plastic stuff into the mailbox. We started off life as an mp3
singles store, way back in 1999, partly because we knew the whole world
was going to turn upside down as the oil runs out. Unfortunately, the CD
burns a bit of carbon, from the time of manufacture until it gets into
your hands. (Hey, did you drive to the store for your last CD
