‘From KFOG to iPod’ in Less than 48 Hours

“Today, a record company, radio station, recording group and online music store teamed up to achieve a new level of speed to market in the digital realm.

The exclusive digital EP “From KFOG to iPod” by critically-acclaimed Virgin Recording Group “The Thrills” was released early this morning on Apple’s iTunes Music Store, less than 48 hours after the band recorded the tracks at a KFOG-FM Emerging Artist Concert in San Francisco on Sunday, January 25. Five songs from the show, including the single “One Horse Town” are available for purchase, allowing consumers to download the live recording from iTunes to their Macs or Windows-based PCs and iPods.  The entire EP can
be downloaded for $4.95 or single tracks are available until February 24th for 99 cents each.”

48 hours? You do not need more than a few seconds to encode the song and upload it to the iTMS server! So, why so long (2 days)? The songs could have been on the iTMS a few seconds after they were recorded…

Agreed.  This more a great business achievement (getting through the red tape) than a technical achievement.

I’ll have to check out “The Thrills” sometime.

This isn’t new at all.  Phish has been releasing live concerts in mp3 or FLAC in less than 48 hours from the time the concert ends for over a year now.  Big deal.

But it’s Phish…I mean, who cares? It probably takes longer between their showers than to encode their songs.

more importantly, who’s d*** do you have to suck to get iTunes to add your music within 48 hours.  It has been 16 days and counting since I began uploading songs to Apple for the label that I work for, and still no sign of them on iTunes…
