The digital world has added many new wrinkles to the music landscape, the latest being the immediate availability of sought-after vintage and long out-of-print works. The catalogs of Cambridge, Mass.-based Rounder Records and Memphis’ venerable Sun Records labels are two such examples, with virtual vaults being thrown open for collectors and aficionados.
The Rounder Archive Series will launch May 31 via Rounderarchive.com with access to a treasure trove of roots music and select new releases. Ten to 15 titles will be made available quarterly as downloadable digital files and as limited-edition CDs. Accompanying liner notes, photos and album art will be available as Adobe PDF files either as downloads or as files on the CDs themselves.
