On the Music Industry Is Changing: Songs may always be available to us

This post from Elika reminded me of some obvioius conclusions. The way we get music to listen to has changed profoundly. I went into Borders Books and Music not too long ago. It was a like amorgue in there. But with the Internet, music doesn't die. It can be forever available, if someone takes the time and effort, and if it has value musically and culturally. -gw
Melodies of the Nightingale for the Family has finally been re-released!  It has been about 2 years since it was out of stock and I was wondering for sometime whether or not to re-issue it.  A number of people wanted to purchase the CD especially on CDbaby but I didn’t feel it was worth reprinting at that time. The CD was produced in 2001 and since the arrangements are more simple compared to Fire and Gold and Birds of Love, I wasn’t sure how I felt about releasing my older music.  After several requests for it, Prosoul found a solution in ordering on demand any number of CDs that a bookstore would like to order.  It works beautifully for now as I didn’t want to release a large number of CDs once again given how much the music industry is changing.  The CD will eventually only be available digitally but until then you can find the Melodies of the Nightingale for the Family by clicking here.
