Thanks for your interest in the publication, TOP 40 MUSIC ON COMPACT DISC. Previously, this was published as a hardbound book. However, due to the size and cost of the book, this publication is now an electronic publication, available only via Internet access and searchable only by subscription. Since the electronic version of TOP 40 MUSIC ON COMPACT DISC is radically different than the previous paper edition, you may explore the new version of the book with no obligation. Search for your favorite artists; find their top-40 hits, the year of the top-40 hit's peak popularity and all the domestic compact discs that contain those top-40 hits. Each will also have the associated record label and catalog number. Pertinent comments such as "rerecording," "live," "LP version," "mastered from vinyl," "alternate take" or "poor stereo separation" will follow each CD listing. You may also search by song title if you do not recall the name of the artist. This electronic publication will give you a powerful search engine. You may perform your own research on topics like "how many and which songs from the '60s are still not available on compact disc?" and many other questions. Most importantly, the TOP 40 MUSIC ON COMPACT DISC database is updated on an almost-daily basis. Plus, you will have instant access to any additions for the next year!

The following genres of compact discs are not referenced:
1) Import compact discs
2) Compact discs that contain obviously live versions of original studio recordings
3) Special promotional samplers that will never be available for retail sale
4) CD singles

The database includes approximately 30,449 compact discs. The newest additions are highlighted in green type and will remain that way for a one-year period. The domestic compact discs included in this book are chosen entirely at the author's discretion. Due to the burgeoning popularity of used compact disc stores, out-of-print compact discs will still be included, along with the currently available titles. Your local compact disc store or reputable mail order dealer such as "Discollector" (303-841-3000) should be able to advise you if a compact disc is currently in print.

Every reasonable effort has been made to assure accuracy of the data included in this electronic book, but due to the size of the publication, some errors will unfortunately occur. Please report any comments or corrections to Pat Downey Enterprises, 5692 Aurora Place, Boulder, CO 80303 or by e-mail to
