Amazon selling mp3’s of out of print albums

I hadn’t even noticed Amazon was selling mp3s now. Not only that, but they seem to be selling mp3s of otherwise unavailable out of print albums. Check it out: http://www.amazon.com/Broadside-Ballads-Vol-9-Sundown/dp/B000S96RLE/ref=dm_ap_alb1?ie=UTF8&qid=1201460424&sr=1-2

Neat. Sort of the same effect as “print on demand” for books, but with an all-electronic product.

Anyone know if they are DRM’ed? Looks like not. ” Digital music downloads from Amazon MP3 are high-quality and free of DRM software, which means they’ll play on any player including iPods™.” http://www.amazon.com/MP3-Music-Download/b?ie=UTF8&node=163856011

Nice. Although I should have previewed the album before I bought it, because I was hoping it would be accordion! No such luck.  Still good stuff.
