Paul Westerberg (solo artists and former key member of The Replacements) has released a new album with with a price tag of forty nine cents (twenty six pence). Although iTunes has not cooperated with this pricing other online vendors such as amazon.com have. To help with the licensing the album – all 43 minutes & 55 seconds is a single track. This strategy has generated a fair bit of activity on the web for Paul with lots of sites large and small blogging about it. The initial release was US only, but today the track has become available to the rest of the world via Tunecore.com. The fun things was that once I’d downloaded the track, I got an email on behalf of Paul that included the statement:
*A note from Paul:*
