Norah Jones third album, Not Too Late has become the most pre-ordered album of all time on Amazon.com. The CD will be released today (1/30) and was available pre-order at a 47% discount foNorah_jones_3rdcd_1 $9.99. The promotion began last month with Amazon offering the singers fans an exclusive first listen to Not Too Late and video of Rosie’s Lullaby.
   
   
   

Other top 10 pre-ordered albums on Amazon.com include (in no order):  Jones second album Feels Like Home; Taking The Long Way by Dixie Chicks; How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb and The Best of 1990-2000 by U2; Bridge Over Troubled Water/This Is The Night and Measure of a Man by Clay Aiken; Sgt.Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles; and Awake by Josh Groban.

Sales would have been even greater if that Amazon’s pending download store was open for business.

  1. CDs are not selling anymore? No, correction: OVERPRICED CDs are not selling anymore. CDs at the $9.99/$10.99 pricepoint can still sell. Used CDs are still a big market (ask Jay & Marie on eBay, as well as other resellers….ask the staff at Amoeba in SF). The next step in this evolution shouldnt be the immiment dimissal of physical formats , but the change in retail price. CDs will survive for another decade if and only if the majors cap the retail at $11.99.
