    I'm duly impressed that Universal has actually dropped a bunch of back catalog on the service, with no restrictions (in the U.S., at least, but I'm not sure how they enforce that). Could a major label finally be getting a clue?

    For the record, I used to work for EMusic, although not for the downloadable music operation, but I thought it was a good idea before that. For a wide variety of reasons, I've never even used Napster or it's progeny, but that's an entirely different debate.

    I was a trial member. It was 30 days or 100 downloads for free.

    I downloaded a 7 CD Coltrane boxed set, a Del album and a Bis album. It was beautfiul.

    I'm a trial member now, 14 days or 50 downloads, whichever comes first.

    It's not bad, although I don't know about paying $12 a month considering that a lot of the bands I listen too don't have their stuff on the p2p networks so I buy the stuff (was that just a run on sentence?).

    Well, that's always been the knock on EMusic...not enough well-known artists. At least I think that's what you're getting at. But as a jazz guy, I'm in heaven. I downloaded about 2/3 of the Real Book (it's a standardized songbook for jazz musicians) *before* they added all the Verve stuff. That's something like 250 jazz standards right there.

    And now they've got what looks like the entire Residents catalog.
