If you didn’t know you can purchase downloads directly from us, on most of the releases, including some previously vinyl only, and out of print releases.   We love Itunes, Emusic, Amazon, etc . . . but it benefits us and the bands most if you get the tracks directly from us.  Instead of cd or vinyl, just choose MP3 on the release.  www.velvetbluemusic.com
