You can also listen to this CD on Spotify, but (as you probably know) the royalty rates they pay are terribly low. For perspective, it takes about a hundred plays on Spotify to generate the same income as a single download sale. So if you like this music, please consider showing your support by actually purchasing it through  iTunesAmazon, or CDBaby. Of course, listening to each track a hundred times on Spotify is OK too.
