In December 2007, the Nonesuch Store opened at nonesuch.com with just a couple of new releases. Now, eight years later, the store has grown to include hundreds of new and classic Nonesuch albums. To celebrate this anniversary, everything now on the site that's out now—CDs, LPs, DVDs, MP3s, FLAC; pre-orders excluded—is 15% off our everyday low prices. That's 15% off the already discounted prices listed on the site on hundreds of CDs, dozens of recordings on vinyl, some unforgettable DVDs, and hundreds of MP3s—including classic recordings no longer in print—and, for digital audiophiles, scores of FLAC lossless files of our latest releases, and a number of new HD FLAC files too.Read more|Journal Topics:Artist NewsArtist NewsWednesday, November 25, 2015|0 comments
