: I think mp3s are a "double-edged sword". It can help to sell albums and it could lose some sales.
Not double-edged in this case. If someone senses an artist has only one or two good songs, they'd stop there (true with most albums).
In this case it clearly isn't so, and mp3.com has gotten her a wider audience. I'd like Vienna to post the same two to http://1sound.com also, where people will stumble across her more easily and where some of us can ask others to listen.
It's free, and the owner was a co-founder of mp3.com.
I wouldn't use different songs, to ensure people get only a couple of them at this point.
Friends who have trouble downloading from any site, including this one, I pointed instead to mp3.com and they happily streamed. And were hooked.
