100 recent albums
I've made a playlist of the 1st song of the 100 most recently released albums on Magnatune.
This makes it easy to listen to what's new, since you can quickly scan a bunch of music to see what you like.
The player is on the "new releases" page, which you can find by clicking the "newest albums" link on the home page:
which takes you to this page:
and the 100-recent-releases player looks like this:
Note that put the GENRE: a the beginning of each track name, so you can skip the types of music you don't like.
This week, I'm also going to try including this "new releases" player in the new-releases announcement email, so people can listen to the new releases inside their email program. We'll see if people like that or find it annoying.

Nice, thanks! Wouldn't this be perfect for an RSS feed?

I've been wanting something like this for the longest time so I could find new stuff without sifting through *everything*.
Thanks for making this happen John!

I'll second Dirk's comment - I'd love it if my RSS aggregator could tell me each time you had a new release. Would go nicely with my download membership... :)

Just gotta say, Ingrid Matthews and Byron Schenkman - CD1-JS Bach-Six Sonatas for Violin and Harpsichord is absolutely wonderful in its musicality. I wish you had comments sections for the individual albums on the site so listeners could post about them.
