The Verve Music Group has just announced an exclusive 3 month program with Rhapsody, the online music service from RealNetworks, to make a number of its classic, out-of-print recordings available to consumers as digital releases. For a short time, Rhapsody will be the only source for several Jazz favorites online.
The Verve Music Group is thrilled to have Rhapsody embrace the delivery of out-of-print music to meet the consumer demand for it," says Ron Goldstein, President and CEO of The Verve Music Group. "Verve can now achieve the full potential of its amazing catalog by re-releasing these classic recordings in the digital space."
The program launched yesterday with 28 titles, which are currently unavailable for purchase anywhere else online in America. Consumers will be able to stream, download, or purchase these classic recordings as well as transfer them to Windows Play-For-Sure compatible portable devices. (Sorry iPod owners!)
