If you’re a BMG Music Service member you won’t be for much longer — the service is being discontinued as of June 30th, 2009.
Starting next month, you can get your fill of ringles in major stores like Wal-Mart, Target, and Best Buy. Brainstormed by Sony, the ringle is a sort of souped-up CD single—”one hit and maybe one remix and an older track—and one ringtone, on a CD with a slip-sleeve cover.” Sony BMG will release 50 titles in October and November, while Universal will release 10 to 20. Each ringle will cost between $5.98 and $6.98. (Wanna bet which price point the labels will go for?)
Ladies and Gentlemen, your Tier 1 champions! Some no-brainers, squeakers and absolute pummeling.
