Free MP3s With Your Vinyl

Electronic Frontier Foundation reports that some indie lables are now offering free MP3's to those who buy the vinyl editions of their offerings. This is fantastic news and I hope to see more of it. I've recorded vinyl to MP3 before, and it's not difficult, but it's a lot harder than sticking a CD in a tray and hitting "import."

From EFF:
There's a new trend underway among indie labels, dubbed "digital vinyl": offering free MP3 downloads for customers who buy albums on vinyl. First Merge Records offered free downloads to those who bought vinyl releases by Clientele and Robert Pollard. Now Saddle Creek Records has announced that they will be doing the same thing for their customers who prefer vinyl, starting with What the Toll Tells, the new record by Two Gallants due in February.
