I can’t remember where I found this but it’s a great idea as an alternative format for your album.

It’s a badge (button, if you’re American) which has an album’s worth of mp3 material on it. You can’t change it, so it’s a fixed format, like an album.

In the direct to fan model having alternative formats and versions of your releases and selling packages of the CD plus vinyl and something like this is very much the norm.

Prices start at around US$9 per unit when you order 300 and drop if you order more – so it’s affordable.
