Here's a paste of the "About mp3 downloads at CD Baby."
For anyone interested in my CD AUGUST OCEAN OVERTURE I post this info.
Many of us independent musicians know about it but others do not.
Although iTunes is great, you can actually SAVE $ if you're interested in downloading the FULL CD of mp3s of my album.
I also push this page as the BEST PLACE now to HEAR EXCERPTS of EVERY TRACK of AugustOceanOverture.
CDbaby does not sell individual mp3s of each track like iTunes; for those of you who do not have iTunes, you'll hear enough in the excerpts that if you want the CD in mp3 format it is CHEAPER THAN iTUNES - At $7.99(14 tracks) it is $2 cheaper - And CDbaby has the most reliable technology around. They began in 1999 before iTunes. As you can hear by the excerpts, that download very quickly, it is good quality, without skips or interruptions.
IF YOU'RE interested in CD AUGUST OCEAN OVERTURE for $7.99: click the link at the bottom for Michael Guy.

About MP3 downloads at CD Baby
An MP3 album is a zip file with a folder containing...
* MP3 files, one per-song, for easy use in any computer, iPod, or MP3 player.
* JPG of the album cover.
* Text file full of info from that album's page: song titles, notes, and links.
The MP3 audio files are very high quality, about 200kbps VBR, encoded using the “LAME” MP3 encoder on its audiophile settings. Your MP3s will play on any hardware.
All your MP3 albums are available for download in your CD Baby account, forever.
The artist sets the selling price, and 91% of the entire price goes directly to the musicians, paid every week. CD Baby only keeps a 9% cut to pay for bandwidth and administration.
There is no DRM or tracking on the MP3 files. We trust you to support independent musicians, and tell your friends to buy a copy, too.
Every album in our Digital Distribution program is available for download on cdbaby.com. Since we are one of the largest distributors of music to Apple iTunes and other great retailers, we don't think of CD Baby as competition - just a “direct factory outlet”.
Why no single song-purchase?
This is not a hit-song store. No corporate filler-tracks. These artists poured their life (and personal bank accounts) into every song on that album, and you're going to love it.
Why no DRM?
DRM is disrespectful. CD Baby customers are the most amazing paying fans of independent music in the world, and should be treated with the highest respect.
Any questions or problems, please contact CD Baby, and we'll be glad to help.
