Due to high shipping rates from the US to Europe and the fact that they abandoned flac for the downloads I haven't bought anything at CD Baby for ages. But it used to be a good source for EM.

Thanks for sharing the news. I didn't get that mail.

Which also works the other way round…

I have bought several download albums from CDBaby, by artists like Sverre Knut Johansen, Patrick O'Hearn and Christian Welde. Have also bought a few CDs.

A pity.

I stopped buying CDs from them several years ago. Most of the CDs were so unprofessionally made, just CD-R with (usually taking off) stickers and home-made covers and cases, that I decided not to buy there anymore.

And for downloading music, there were (and are) a lot of pages like bandcamp that works very well.
