Dave Mathews Finally Gets With The Program

Dave Matthews, Napster make online music together

The Dave Matthews Band has agreed to make its catalog of music available on Napster, marking the first time the RCA recording artist has signed with an online music service. Napster and its partner Best Buy have committed to promoting the deal during the time that it is exclusive, which ends Aug. 22. Chris Gorog, chairman and CEO of Napster and Roxio, said DMB was one of the artists customers requested most often. “We are extremely pleased that Dave Matthews Band chose to bring its entire catalog to Napster before any competing service,” he said. “And our alliance with Best Buy will ensure that fans nationwide are aware that this incredible catalog is now available.” DMB had been selling downloads exclusively through its official Web site.
