Do CD's Have to Be $ 18.99?

By theajaysharma

There's an article over at Salon about how a new startup,, is selling CD's for only 4.95 (that's the shipping and handling). Now obviously you're not going to find the latest Oasis, Chemical Brothers, or Badly Drawn Boy albums there, but it's important to note that every CD sold is making a profit. Also, according to the article, those independent artists are making twice as much as the major label artists are on CD sales. The link to the story was totally whore'ed from Slashdot.
