An Era Is Over
http://www.mp3.com/oemperor/ cannot be found.
I started with mp3.com back in 1999, posting the mp3 "Days Summer Days" to the site in January of that year and releasing the four-song CD "Cheating at Solitaire" in February of that year. Back then my Macintosh didn't have CD-writing capability, so the facilities at mp3.com were much appreciated.
Forget Ontario Emperor for a moment: what about "Taco Taco Taco" by Doctor Orange?
I hope someone can come up with a financial proposition that will allow independent artists to publish their music on the web. I hope that the current proposals don't end up degenerating into a "we only want your music if everybody will like it" ho-hum.
