Out of print albums come back to life

Sony BMG and EMI are hooking up with Amazon's CreateSpace service to offer a limited number of burn-on-demand albums that have been out of print for a while. The Listening Post are describing this as "like Cafe Press for music", in that each album will be made as a one-off on customer request.

It's a nice move, although why this wasn't being done a decade ago is one of those mysteries that shareholders in the majors might want to ponder.
