Beam me up, Scotty!
Thanks to MP3's proprietary software "Beam-It," people who own any Bowie CD can add their CDs to a my.mp3.com account (for free). In David's words:
"It's an amazing testament to the net that MP3.com technology allows someone to have their record collection at their fingertips wherever they are in the world. The days of traveling with CDs in hand are beginning to grow short."
Additionally, whether you own the albums or not, any cyber-surfer can go to davidbowie.mp3.com and hear Ziggy Stardust (the same version as on the Beeb album, not the elusive "extra" track) and Let's Dance.
John Diaz or MP3.com says, "We are extremely pleased that David Bowie has chosen to allow his fans to listen to his entire catalogue by utilizing our technologies. In addition to being one of the most influential and dynamic performers in rock history, Bowie has been a pioneer in recognizing the power of distributing music on the Internet. This is a true victory for music fans everywhere."
