ArkivMusic to start on-demand service for out of print CDs ArkivMusic.com has signed agreements with the Big Four record labels, Universal Classics, EMI Classics, Sony BMG Masterworks and Warner Classics as well as 24 indie labels in an effort to produce CDs on demand under the newly formed ArkivCD program.
The program will include title "sets with massive booklets, such as operas with lengthy libretto texts and translations."

The company hopes to have 5000 titles available by the end of the year.

Good! In the "digital age", nothing should ever be "out of print"!

I remember reading predictions of Printing On Demand, where you could walk into a bookstore and buy anything ever printed. That hasn't happened, but maybe we are getting there with music, and perhaps movies are next.
