Vol. 14, No. 5: February-March 2010
Business Changes Create New Niche Market
Collectors Seeking Higher Quality Buy Final CD Pressings

Welcome to the February edition of Guitar Nine's on-line magazine. As referred to in our "Game Over" column, CD collecting has seemingly passed over from mainstream activity to audiophile pursuit during 2009, and to that end, quality-conscious music fans are quietly snapping up the last remaining available discs. As such, we've added 10 releases to the site in the past two months, including instrumental CDs by David Stockden, Bernard Alcorn, Patrick Butler, Borislav Mitic, Mr. Fastfinger, Svilen Mikov, Infinite Loop, Will Brady and the Melodic Soloists compilation. You can now listen to and order 1891 instrumental releases by 1181 different artists.
