iSub Pop...

As more and more good music becomes available digitally it grows ever difficult to dissuade music consumers from spending their green on files.  While I know it's important for record labels, (indies especially), to remain current and competitive, which makes providing a digital option essential, the control employed by the likes of iTunes removes much of the ownership of music legally purchased and the product is normally substandard anyway. 

But, that's the purist in me talking.  In all honesty, considering the list of albums and singles that Sub Pop will now be making available through iTunes, at least the digital library is becoming a better stocked and more varied resource.  Recognizing 25 years of Sub Pop, here's the lable's remarkable discography, some of which is available after years of being out of print.

All info comes courtesy of Sub Pop (naturally).
