I’ve signed up for Sam Phillips’ The Long Play, a subscription based release program which launched today [2009-10-01].
Sam is a musician I am happy to support in this way, as I tend to be the kind of fan who tracks down all her rarities anyway. This makes it all so much more convenient. I am pleased to report that the first EP and the first rarities are in 320kbps mp3. Naturally, being a sonic enthusiast I’d have preferred lossless flac files, but, 320 kbps is the best mp3s can be. And maybe the site will improve with lossless files if subscribers ask. I’ll wait till they ask for feedback.
