Thanks for your order with CD Baby!

# Description Price
=== =========== =====
1 FRANKIE AND HIS FINGERS: one hell of a skele $7.99

Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with
sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure
it was in the best possible condition before mailing.

Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over
the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money
can buy.

We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party
marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of
Portland waved "Bon Voyage!" to your package, on its way to you, in
our private CD Baby jet on this day, Wednesday, October 17th.

I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did.
Your picture is on our wall as "Customer of the Year." We're all
exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

CD Baby takes way too much money from each sale away from the artist.

Matt : Their site says they only keep a 9% cut, or $4 for physical CDs :

I think for all the work it takes to warehouse, pick, pack, ship, and pay the artist, that isn't bad at all. Amazon takes 65%!
