CD and Download Store within Facebook

Mike Shupp Music Store in Facebook

My Facebook musician page “Mike Shupp Music” now has its own CD and Download Store, enabling both downloads and CD purchases from right within Facebook. Courtesy of incredible music publishing platform Bandcamp, which powers the “Music + Downloads” section of this site (as I previously blogged about), the seamless in-page checkout flow, including shopping cart if desired, is really beautiful… and if you prefer a physical CD purchase (as I usually do), it still includes immediate digital download of the whole album, while you wait for your CD shipment. Best of all, the digital downloads are available in full CD-fidelity, uncompressed, 16-bit / 44.1 kHz audio formats ALAC (Apple Lossless—for iTunes) and FLAC… as well as high quality MP3 320, or just about any other format you could possibly desire. And a PDF Liner Notes booklet is even included with full album purchase downloads—you could choose the ALAC or FLAC download format, burn to recordable disc, print out the liner notes, and you’ve got the full audio quality CD, immediately.
