Since we're already OT I'll just jump in with this. emusic.com seems to have nearly every Fall release available on their all-you-can-eat download service (priced as low as 10 zops/month). They've also got releases by David J., Legendary Jim Ruiz Group, Go- and many other list favs. A true bargain, and completely legit.
