I love “CD Baby”:http://www.cdbaby.com/ for a couple of reasons.
Reason #1: This is an excerpt of the confirmation email I received upon shipment of my recent order:
Your CDs have been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.
A team of 50 employees inspected your CDs and polished them to make sure they were in the best possible condition before mailing.
Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CDs into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.
We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved ‘Bon Voyage!’ to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, Sunday, January 29th.
Reason #2: CD Baby sells “Craic Wisely”:http://www.craicwisely.com/ CDs, including their “new one”:http://cdbaby.com/cd/craicwisely2, which I await most eagerly. I wrote about them “before”:http://www.polytropos.org/archives/2004/01/craic.html; they’re super-cool. Make sure your next CD Baby order includes something of theirs.
