wxjl - what's up?


OK, so a few years ago I thought it would be cool to do a CD collection of new bands, sort of a collective release. Each band would chip in $100 (150?) a track and then I would get the CD out to as many people as possible.

It worked pretty well, not all tracks were winners- but people liked it as a method for discovering new bands. I did again for #2 and for #3 I just gave away copies of the CD to people who bought Cds from Todd at ADD.

Since then a few tracks have sold on iTunes- I'll have to do some research to see how many, but usually say 4-5 a month (that is 4-5 songs a month, 1 copy each, we're talking the long end of the long tail folks!). I still have some copies of the Cds left (but not many of #1 and #2)

Last month added it to their MP3 store and huh, WXJL is our biggest seller-

It's even #64 on the Europop chart on Amazon. Hmmm. So not sure what it going on, I won't get sales reports for another month or so (if even, not sure how Amazon reports sales yet, monthly or quarterly).

Below is one of the more popular tracks from this set- in an original form. Eight to Infinity redid this track with female vocals for their album...
