Rhino Records Downloads
Get your credit cards ready to inject your own personal stimulus package into the economy. Rhino Records now has lossless downloads from major popular artists. Just a cursory look at the Rhino site and one will see downloads from Bad Company, The Doors, Otis Reading, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Chicago, Van Halen, etc... FLAC, WMA, and Apple Lossless are are all available!
I was in the middle of writing a review of the dCS components I've been listening to for weeks. I posted an update to my Twitter page and noticed a Tweet from Rhino Records eluding to lossless downloads. I went to the Rhino site and actually got goose-bumps I was so excited. Rhino has around 2000 artists listed on its website. A quick browse through some of my favorites leads me to believe digital downloads are available for many of them!
Not only are there a ton of great artists available, but Rhino is also educating its customers about CODECs, Bit Rates, and higher quality sound. Here are a couple screenshots from the site.
One more note: If you're not familiar with Emmylou Harris and her album Wrecking Ball
, you must download the lossless version from Rhino. If you want to sample one track first track titled Where Will I Be. This album has great production value and has even better music.
