Hi all,

All that string of type has followed my "signature" for a while now.
Yes, CDbaby is the outfit that got me the bulk of that distribution.
They haven't come  through with an Emusic connection for me 
yet though. I have no idea why. Maybe Emusic has better taste
than that.

Here's some info on those distribution points BTW:

Lossless Audio Codec) which sound MUCH better than mp3s.

But before any of you gets too excited or whatever about this digital 
distribution
thing. To put it in perspective, I've made only a few dollars so far from 
any 
of
it. I've had vastly more income paid from ASCAP for radio play fer gosh 
sakes!

I'm not holding my breath for sudden fame and fortune to come sneaking 
up on me any time. I don't expect that will ever happen as long as I'm 
playing 
the kind of music that interests me. Maybe if I play ABBA covers and wear 
one of those large-lapelled one-piece jumpsuits . . .  heheh. Ooof Dah!
That ought to do it!

Best regards,
