Specifically, culd the FCC enfrce its indecency rules - which Stern claims drve him away frm terrestrial -at satellite radi? That's exactly what Saul Levine is hping fr. On Oct. 9, Levine, the president f Mt. Wilsn FM Bradcasters, filed a Petitin fr Rulemaking t amend Part f the FCC's pending satellite radi rules t include an indecency prvisin. ` While legal experts say subscriptin radi deeper First Amendment prtectins than free radi, Levine's petitin argues that thz FCC is, in fact, empwered t enfrce indecency rules at satellite radi and asks the cmmissin t "level [the] playing field." Why is Levine cnvinced the FCC has such pwer when the satellite radi industry-which is incurring millins f dllars in new lsses t hire indecency's biggest ffenders -is nt? Accrding t Levine's petitin, the FCC has already subjected satellite radi t Equal Emplyment Opprtunity and plitical bradcasting rules and plicies.

BY LEILA COBO MIAMI -They may have gne frm flying first class t flying cach. But fr a number f frmer majr -label executives, a new life perating independent music cmpanies is prviding a refreshing change in their apprach t the business. "We have a lt f flexibility," Gerge Zamra says. He launched his wn label, Miami -based SGZ Entertainment, in cnjunctin with prducer Sergi LLORD: FEEL FOR THE MARKET Gerge in June after seven years as president f Warner Music Latina. "In this business, timing is everything," Zamra adds. "Because Sergi and I wn the label, basically we can d mre creative deals at a much faster rate." Welcme t the wrld f the new Latin indie, in many cases run by a frmer majr -label head. Here, the apprach is smaller, the verhead is lw, the marketing is creative and the cnsumer -fr nw, at least -tends t ccupy a market niche. In additin, the term "recrd label" has given way t the term "entertainment cmpany." In this new wrld, label, management, bking and pub- lishing fall under the same umbrella. "The management aspect f the business is very imprtant," says Oscar Llrd, wh launched Oscar Llrd Entertainment a little mre than a year ag after several years as chairman f Sny Discs. Based in Miami, OLE includes a label (Ole Music), a management cmpany (the Netwrk), publishing cmpany (Ventura Music) and a cncert BLAIR:'THE OLD WAYS DON'T WORK' prmtin arm (Encre Events), which prduced its first majr shw earlier this year. "When we apprach an artist's career, we lk at it frm the full spectrum," says Llrd, whse acts include established stars like Elvis Cresp and Charlie Zaa and newer nes like Tmmy Trres and teen act Tick Tck. "We see that what we d n the recrd side will feed the management side. Being able t d that, with careful crdinatin, is a big plus factr fr us." In fact, several executives have launched entertainment cmpanies first and labels secnd. "Yu can't perate in the ld ways," says Jerry Blair, a frmer executive f Arista and Clumbia wh created the (Cntinued n page ) Infinity Drps Indies; PD Splits In Cntrversy BY PAUL HEINE YORK- Infinity Bradcasting is nt cmmenting n a New Yrk Times stry that claims the cmpany fired its tp Rchester, N.Y., prgrammer fr accepting gifts frm recrd cmpanies. The news cmes as anther majr radi player, Entercm, annunces that it will n lnger wrk with independent prmters. Accrding t the Times, an internal Infinity investigatin cncluded that Jhn McRae, wh versaw rck WCMF, mdem WZNE, tp 0 WPXY and adult tp 0 WRMM, "had accepted an unspecified sum's wrth f gift certificates sent stensibly fr use in listener cntests r in statin prmtins." The Times cited as surces unnamed radi and recrd label executives wh had been briefed n the matter. One f them, a majr - label representative, said the label had rdered mre than $,000 wrth f Best Buy gift certificates t be sent t Infinity- Rchester, "care f" McRae. Cncerns regarding McRae's activities cntributed t Infinity's Nv. decisin t sever ties with independent prmters (Billbard, Nv. ), the article said. Befre ending relatinships with such prmters, Infinity had a plicy in place that banned exclusive deals with indies. Infinity's mve came n the heels f New Yrk State Attrney General Elit Spitzer's campaign against payla (see lined In: Radi, page ). Less than a week after Infinity ended relatins with the prmters, Entercm, radi's furth - largest grup wner, fllwed suit. Hwever, Entercm executive VP Jack Dnlevie tells Billbard that the cmpany had very few deals with indies left and that the mve is "simply the last step in what has been an evlving situatin ver the last several years." Dnlevie says the cmpany's relatinship with indies is "a business mdel that desn't wrk anymre... We're fcusing mre n direct relatinships with the recrd cmpanies, as ppsed t dealing with independents." Entercm senir VP f prgramming Pat Paxtn adds: 'We have decided t wrk directly with the recrd cmpanies, thus eliminating the need fr independent prmters. As many f ur statins have already made this mve, it makes sense fr the few statins that still wrk with indies t simply cntinue in the directin the industry has been mving fr the past few years." Several f the Entercm deals with independent prmters required prviding advance ntice f terminatin. Dnlevie says the curtailments are effective at the end f the year.

6 Upfrnt UMG's Digital Gambit New Dwnlad -Only Label Is Hme T Established Acts BY BRIAN GARRITY YORK- Universal Music Grup is testing the all- digital waters with a new label venture that sells its releases exclusively thrugh dwnlad and streaming services like itunes, Rhapsdy and Napster. UMe Digital bwed Nv. with mre than a half -dzen album releases frm the likes f the Shazam and Ken Stringfellw f the Psies. Hwever, UMG executives are quick t cautin that the mve shuld nt be seen as a signal that the CD frmat is n the way ut. The strategy reflects stcking trends at retail as much as it measures the cmpany's cnfidence in the physical frmat. UMe Digital is a unit f Universal Music Enterprises, UMG's catalg and special prducts divisin. The digital label is designed t further UMe's missin f driving sales f established artists, nt discvering new nes. UMe president Bruce Resnikff says UMe Digital's fcus is acts that have a built -in fan base but dn't play int a mass -market retail strategy. Other acts launching with UMe Digital include Parthenn Huxley f pst -Jeff Lynne -era ELO; Rusty Andersn, sessin musician fr Paul McCartney and Ricky Martin; Eltn Jhn guitarist Jhn Jrgensn; Black 'N Blue, the band frm Kiss turing guitarist Tmmy Thayer; Shania Twain /Amy Grant guitarist Will Owsley; and rck veteran Dan Reed. "The retail envirnment has changed significantly with the shift t the big bxes and the rack accunts," Resnikff says. "There are s few recrds in the stres nw, relatively speaking, it's almst impssible t get many artists int thse places." As a result, the label will nt distribute physical CDs, either nline r ffline. Hwever, its cntent will be available t the digital arms f bricks -and -mrtar retailers like Virgin, FYE and Twer.

"I wanted t put everything in the same camp," says Ludacris (aka Chris Bridges) f segueing t UMPG. His publishing entity is called Ludacris Universal Publishing (ASCAP). "We feel very cmfrtable abut the visin UMPG has fr us," the artist's manager Chaka says. "We want t help Universal grw and vice versa." That visin, accrding t UMPG wrldwide chairman David Renzer, includes increasing Ludacris' film and TV activity as well as his internatinal expsure. "Hip-hp is ruling the charts," says Renzer, wh secured the deal in EXCLUSIVE tandem with East Cast urban music directr Ethipia Habtemariam. "If yu're ging t be a successful cntemprary music publisher, yu better sign the best hip -hp talent. Ludacris has the ptential t be a wrldwide star."

The smetimes intense discussins invlving music executives, entertainment attrneys, aggregatrs and carriers addressed the rle and value f music in a quickly evlving mbile marketplace. "Napsterizatin f the mbile space is a real threat," cautined Adam Sextn, VP f marketing and prduct develpment at Chaticm. His warning came during the rund -table discussin "Wh Gets What?" Of special cncern, Sextn and thers said, is the develpment f phnes that cme equipped with USB prts, facilitating the dwnlad f music frm cmputers. "This is eerily reminiscent f the early 000s, when dwnlads began and labels said, We want 0ß.' I hpe we wrk ut business mdels, r we will devalue music," Sextn said. Hwever, ther attendees were cnfident abut the enduring value f music fr cnsumers. "In tw t three years, mbile will be a huge business fr us," predicted keynte speaker Larry Kenswil, president f Universal elabs. But still up in the air is the issue f just hw the business will develp. While Kenswil said Universal elabs is examining prtable music subscriptins, cperatin with ther sectrs f the industry is essential. There seemed t be little cnsensus amng the different players in the industry. On the ne hand, many cmplained that the music industry as a whle hasn't dne itself any favrs. Even when aggregatrs and carriers want t play by the rules, fr example, they find that a sng has multiple publishers and that it can take six mnths t d a single licensing deal fr a piece f music.

10 I_C ;pirlin Editrials /Cmmentary / Leiters Africa's AIDS Crisis Requires A Glbal Respnse Mst f us already knw smething abut AIDS in Africa, despite the shcking lack f press cverage. I recently traveled there and lved the peple s much, but was devastated t meet s many wh will nt survive because f the AIDS pandemic. Dec. is Wrld AIDS Day, and I have decided t get invlved and lend my vice t what is being called the mst imprtant mral issue f ur time. I'm writing this t yu, the industry and my fellw artists - smething I nrmally never d- because it affects all f us. Just fr a mment imagine the media hysteria and glbal utrage if millin Americans, many f them children, died frm a treatable disease because the medicine was t cstly. Imagine if anther millin peple were infected and had n hpe f paying fr life- saving treatment. Imagine the call t actin if millin American children were rphaned by this hrrific disease, wandering ur streets alne and unlved, with n ne left t care fr them. This is exactly what is happening thrughut sub -Saharan Africa. Yu prbably already knw that antiretrviral treatment has transfrmed the lives f thse with AIDS here in the West, returning them t health. But did yu knw that less than % f Africans with AIDS have access t this life -saving treatment? A Call T Actin UNAIDS estimates that there will be 00 millin peple infected with AIDS by the end f this decade, and withut antiretrviral medicine, they cannt survive. The disease is mre than a humanitarian catastrphe; it is a mral crisis that is beginning t destry whle cuntries. I believe this shuld be as imprtant as the war n terrrism; as imprtant as rebuilding impverished cuntries like Afghanistan My View. By Alicia Keys r Iraq; as imprtant as peace in the Middle East. This shuld be as imprtant as if ur wn daughters and sns were dying. Think hw we wuld feel if the drugs that culd save ur lved nes' lives were unavailable t us because f cst! Africans cntinue t fight the pandemic with tremendus curage, effrt and cmpassin. Make n mistake, incredible wrk has been dne by such cuntries as Uganda and Senegal t cntain their epidemics. n e lets Many African natins have excellent plans in place but lack the resurces t implement them. I want t take this pprtunity t intrduce yu t an rganizatin that I have been wrking with, Keep a Child Alive. This grup ffers an emergency respnse t the deadly "treatment gap" that is destrying Africa. Keep a Child Alive is a key player in a dynamic calitin that is rapidly becming a pwerful glbal mvement t stp the dying. These rganizatins are dedicated t actin. With every dllar raised, Keep a Child Alive enables individuals t pay fr medicine fr a child r family member wh culd nt therwise affrd it. The rganizatin has established treatment prgrams in Kenya, Suth Africa, Uganda and Rwanda. But nw, we ALL need t get invlved. We need t use ur talent and individual and prfessinal pwer and privilege t help create and fuel a glbal mvement. Otherwise, we'll be knwn as the generatin with everything except cmpassin. Keep a Child Alive is a new way t help: Yu can prvide the medicatin that will keep a child alive. And if yu lk clsely enugh, we will all realize that the true her f the narrative is YOU. Alicia Keys is a Grammy Award -winning J /RMG recrding artist. Labels MustAdpt PP Slutins David Fagin's bservatins and the prpsed slutins cntained in his Opinin page piece (Billbard, Nv. 0) are nthing shrt f brilliant. He illuminates, frm a very persnal and dwn -in -the- trenches viewpint, the incredible bstacles that music cnsumers, artists and labels face in discvering and hearing new artists. Fagin is 00% crrect abut peer -tpeer's likely increase in ppularity and the challenges that it represents fr terrestrial radi, music retailers and the majr labels (what's left f them), as well as the limiting effects n the creatin, distributin and sale f music -in any frm. There are slutins n the hrizn - Shawn Fanning's sncap.cm cmes t mind. The recent develpments in the satellite radi space, the incredible surge in sales f MP players and the cntinuing ppularity f PP netwrks pint t the bvius fact that peple want mre music and mre diversity, and they want t chse the frm this music cmes in. The custmer is king, and Fagin's suggestins shuld be adpted immediately. T ignre his lgic and nt implement his suggestins is t miss the bat -again. Duglas M.Tull St. Luis Dwnlading Reflects Peple's Ethics David Fagin's cmmentary, "The `Antidte' t File Sharing," is naïve at best. If the answer t file sharing were t put mre mney int develping artists at the label level and then bradcast these artists n the radi, the Kazaas f the Wrld Wide Web wuld be ffering slely unsigned and little -knwn artists fr dwnlading. This is nt the case. Anyne I've ever knwn t illegally dwnlad music has dwnladed tp artists. Sadly, the dwnlading phenmenn is less a statement n the quality f music that is being ffered by labels, and mre a reflectin f peple's ethics. I agree with Fagin when he says, "It's stealing, pint blank." Whether ne is stealing a CD frm a Twer Recrds r dwnlading a file frm the Internet, it is illegal and unfair. Until the public can wrap their minds arund that cncept, illegal file sharing will cntinue, and labels and artists will suffer. Mark Cliser Ls Angeles Let yur clleagues knw what's n yur mind.

Nas' latest prject, the duble -CD "Street's Disciple" (Ill Will Recrds /Clumbia), is n exceptin. The Nv. 0 release finds the Queens, N.Y., grit picking up the persnal threads wven thrughut his critically acclaimed "Gd's Sn." On that 00 album, he waxed rhymes abut the lss f his mther and newfund lve with Star T ak/zmba Label Grup artist Kelis. With marriage arund the cmer, a mre cntent Nas greets listeners n the secnd half f "Street's Disciple," his eighth studi album. But n the first disc, the 0- year -ld channels Nasty Nas, the vivid stryteller wh crafted the seminal 99 debut "Illmatic." As Nas explains, the new prject tells the saga f a man married t the streets, the changes he is ging thrugh and the need fr a wman in his life. "I wanted t apprach this album frm a strytelling vibe again," he says. "The sngs deal with where I believe men's heads shuld be at, nt falling int bullshit. It may be lighter than 'Gd's Sn,' but there's still a lt f cntent. And I've als gt smething n there fr the ladies." That's a step back frm three years ag, when Nas fund himself in the midst f a high- prfile muth-ff with fellw New Yrk rapper Jay -Z. Out f that battle -rhyme cntest emerged "Still - matic," whse pening track "Ether" cuntered Jay -Z's tur de frce "The Takever." "Battling back and frth is tired," Nas says. "But I wn't diss the game fr the battles because that's what happens n the blck: One day yu may bump heads r there's sme miscmmunicatin. But life is abut getting yurs and mving t the next level. And hip -hp shuld be the same way: mving t the next level and mving beynd the battles." HOLDING HIS OWN Few cntemprary artists can execute enugh cmpelling sngs fr a single CD, let alne a duble set. But Nas fires mre hits than misses as he alternates amng teacher, lver, father and streetwise scial cmmentatr. Vestiges f his previus persnas surface n such tracks as the cutting "Cn Picnic (These Are Our Heres)." It satirically excriates the new millennium African -American steretypes reflected n TV and in ther media. "American Way" admnishes gvernment fficials as well as hip -hp artists new t the plitical arena. Nas then entreats peple t "Live Nw," which ends with the arresting beep f a patient flat -lining.

He ruminates n (Cntinued n page ) Shut Factry Shines Albert's Brass Fr New Series It's easy t remember the '0s filtered thrugh the music f the Beatles, Elvis Presley, the Beach Bys r Frank Sinatra, but there was anther act that ruled the chart. Herb Albert & the Tijuana Brass spent an amazing weeks at N. between 9 and 9 and scred a slew f hits including "This Guy's in Lve With Yu" and "A Taste f Hney." Thrugh a licensing deal with Shut Factry, at least titles will hit stres again cme February via the "Herb Alpert Signature Series," Billbard has exclusively learned. The albums all riginally came ut n A&M, the label Alpert and Jerry Mss funded in the early '0s. Althugh reissued n CD riginally in the late '0s, many have been ut f print fr years. Feb. will see the rerelease f 9's 'The Lnely Bull" and 9's "Suth f the Brder." Als arriving that day is "Lst Treasures," a cllectin f previusly unreleased sngs recrded during the grup's heyday. The prgram will cntinue thrugh May 00, with releases cming apprximately every tw mnths, including the icnic "Whipped Cream and Other Delights" in April. Fr thse t yung t remember, that album's cver -a cmely yung wman cvered in whipped cream -was cnsidered quite risqué at the time and, as Alpert says, was "pinned up in the bathrm" f many ht -blded American males. Alpert versaw the remastering f the sets and the expanded liner ntes, all f which cntain additinal reflectins by him. The jurney back in time was a pleasant ne fr Alpert. "It has been wnderful," he says. "It caught me ff guard. I try nt t live in the past, [but] when I heard these tapes, I just The Beat. By Melinda Newman felt it wuld be nice fr peple t be able t experience it." The music, in additin t melding a wnderful melange f jazz, pp, trpical, R &B and Latin sunds, captured a perid in time. "There was a certain naturalness that was happening in the '0s and '0s that felt mre like a happening," Alpert says. "Prductin wasn't as clean and neat as I'm hearing these days. They're nt perfect, but they have an hnest feeling, which is what I was ging fr." The releases are all the riginal recrdings, except Alpert says he did rerecrd a few f his trumpet parts. Alpert and Mss regained cntrl f Alpert's catalg when they sld Rn - dr Publishing t PlyGram in 000. Fr Shut funding partner and COO Bb Emmer, the prject serves as a reunin. "My first jb was as a cllege rep fr A &M between 99 and 9," he says. Emmer and Mss ccasinally saw each ther while vacatining in Maui, and, recently, Mss apprached him t discuss the ptential pairing. "Shut Factry has put ut sme wnderful cmpilatins that lk great, s we were lking fr their expertise," Mss says.' We wanted t represent Herbie in a really, really substantial and tasty way." The primary audience fr the Brass' music, Emmer believes, is the - t - year -ld dem, but Emmer says the label's utreach includes much yunger fans. "It basically cmes dwn t publicity and making peple aware," he says. "It's hitting peple ver the head with a tw -by- fur."

12 Music Fr Directr McG, Music Plays A Vital Rle When peple think f film directrs wh are als passinate music fans, McG's name is bund t cme up. McG (whse real name is Jseph McGinty Nichl) shared his thughts n mvies and music during a lively keynte address at the Hllywd Reprter/Billbard Film & TV Music Cnference, which tk place Nv. - at the Renaissance Hllywd Htel in Ls Angeles (Billbard, Nv. ). The directr f the "Charlie's Angels" mvies and several music vides is als executive prducer f Fx TV series "The O.C.," which has given valuable expsure t up -andcming artists. In additin, McG has either executive -prduced r pr- duced several albums, including the Angels." Accrding t Clumbia Pic - "Charlie's Angels: Full Thrttle" tures, the mvie had a wrldwide sundtrack and "The O.C. "-related bx -ffice grss f $0 millin. cllectins. McG als directed the 00 sequel In a Q&A sessin mderated by Billbard West Cast bureau chief Melinda Newman, McG said, "I've scarcely ever drawn a difference between music and film... Music is always a character t me in anything I d." McG added, "I listen t my films with the picture ff. I want the stry t be prpelled thrugh nnexpsitry means: a snic presence that hlds the hands f the audience and takes them thrugh what the film is intended t be." Speaking f his early influences, McG cited his family and prducer Rick Rubin. "I grew up in a husehld filled with music. I was always making visual accmpaniments t the music I was hearing." After helming numerus vides fr such acts as Sugar Ray, the Offspring and Smash Muth, McG made his feature -film directrial debut in 000 with "Charlie's M'Àes& Music. By Carla Hay "Charlie's Angels: Full Thrttle" that grssed $ millin wrldwide, accrding t Clumbia. As fr the music in the "Charlie's Angels" mvies, McG said, "I used music as a character. We used needle drps as scre. I was trying t d smething specific: having the whle film feeling like ur favrite mix tapes." McG said he believed the Destiny's Child hit "Independent Wmen Part " frm the first "Charlie's Angels" mvie was respnsible fr blstering the film's bx -ffice revenue. "We were lucky t have a sng frm the mvie in which they actually cite the mvie [in the sng] in a way that feels rganic and desn't feel like vert marketing t the audience," McG said. The directr nted that music budgets and getting the rights t sngs are nging cncerns. McG revealed that he had hped t use Van Halen's "Ht fr Teacher" in the first "Charlie's Angels" film, but it was "heartbreaking" when the band did nt grant the rights t the sng. The directr used Heart's "Barracuda " instead. He added that as a directr, his chice f music in a mvie is always met with pressure and differing agendas frm the film studi, music supervisr, film cmpser and the sundtrack's recrd cmpany. "It's plitics," McG cncluded. "It's a real balancing act." During the "Bm in Artist Bipics" panel Nv., Fx Music president Rbert Kraft revealed that Wind -up Recrds utbid all ther recrd labels t release the sundtrack t Fx's Jhnny Cash bipic "Walk the Line," due in 00. Kraft said Jaquin Phenix and Reese Witherspn, wh star as Cash and his wife June Carter Cash, respectively, d their wn singing in the film but first had t win the apprval f music prducer T Bne Burnett. Stuart Benjamin, a prducer f the "Ray" mvie and sundtrack, summed up the panelists' belief abut artist bipics, saying that it is "essential t tie up the synch licensing and masters first." On a persnal nte, thanks t all the cnference attendees, speakers, panelists, mderatrs, spnsrs and Billbard and Hllywd Reprter staffers wh helped make the cnference a success.

Musical Wrlds Cllide-And It's Exciting Genre intermingling has becme a red -ht tpic in the classical wrld. Is this grwing trend f juxtapsing styles within a single album r prgram a radical (r calculated) mve meant t draw in new listeners, r is it an rganic - perhaps even inevitable -frm f artistic evlutin? A new recrding and tw recent cncerts within the Jhn Adams - curated In Yur Ear festival at Carnegie's Zankel Hall suggest that this cnfluence cmes quite naturally. The first Zankel perfrmance was by Paul Dresher & His Electr- Acustic Band; the ther featured Evan Zipryn & the Game - Ian Galak Tika, a Balinese gamelan ensemble funded and directed by Zipryn that is based at the Massachusetts Institute f Technlgy. Dresher, wh studied with artists ranging frm Lu Harrisn t Indian sitar virtus Nikhil Banerjee and West African master drummers, says that drawing upn nn -Eurpean and nn -American surces is lgical fr cmpsers f his age. "One f the things that certainly influenced many cmpsers f my generatin," the - year -ld Dresher says, "was an efflrescence f availability f music frm all ver the wrld and frm all perids f time." Dresher's music stutly refuses easy categrizatin, as his album "Cage Machine" (Oct. 9, New Albin) demnstrates. His scpe ranges frm the dazzling kinetics f the "Racer" mvement frm "Elapsed Time," a 99 du fr vilin and pian perfrmed by David Abel and Julie Steinberg, t the astnishing sunds f "In the Name(less)," a 00 piece written fr tw brand - new instruments, the quadrachrd and the marimba lumina.

While the instrument is pwerful as heard n CD, watching Dresher play it- explring the quadrachrd's tnal ptential live nstage by bwing and plucking its strings r running a clth ver the length f an entire string t prduce therwrldly, eerie vertnes -is an even greater delight. "The marimba lumina," Dresher cntinues, "was designed by Dn Buchla. It's a percussin cntrller that lks a little bit like a marimba, but it is nthing like a marimba in terms f what it is capable f. Tnally, it's a MIDI cntrller, but its remarkable quality is that it's extremely expressive f perfrmance gestures." Zipryn, wh recrds fr Cantalupe Recrds, agrees with Dresher abut the excitement f musical wrlds clliding and says that much f his music als Classical Scre. explres this phenmenn. " `Tire Fire,' which we perfrmed at Zankel," the cmpser ntes, "is fr full gamelan with basically a rck band: tw guitars, a bass player and a By Anastasia Tsiulcas keybardist. I felt that these ensembles were kind f the tw extremes f Western and Balinese music. On the ne hand, yu have a village- riented, traditinal ensemble playing handmade instruments. On the ther hand, yu have a plugged -in, machine- manufactured grup. These are my tw wrlds. It's a deliberately uncmfrtable fit. There are tuning prblems, there are balance prblems, but that's the wrld we live in." KAPELL RECORDINGS? Mre than three hurs f newly unearthed perfrmances by icnic pianist William Kapell, wh died at age in a 9 plane crash, are creating an enrmus stir. The recrdings, made n three acetates, were dne by a devted music fan named Ry Prestn in Melburne, Australia. Wrking in his hme, Prestn recrded Kapell's cncerts as they were transmitted by the Australian Bradcasting Crp. As his health declined later in life, Prestn gave his treasure trve t his friend Maurice Austin, wh last mnth turned ver the recrdings t Kapell's widw, Dr. Anna Lu Kapell -Dehavenn. Kapell recrded fr RCA, and in 99 BMG Classics released "William Kapell Editin," a nine -CD set f his cmplete cmmercial recrdings as well as varius live and hme perfrmances. Daniel Guss, directr f the classical catalg fr BMG Classics wh als executive-prduced "William Kapell Editin," says his label is interested in issuing these newly rediscvered recrdings. "Hwever," he ntes, "we first need t reslve certain issues, such as questins f wnership rights and investigating the quality f the acetates." BILLBOARD DECEMBER, 00

14 Music urin Execs Agree Tix Pricing Mdells Brken BY CHRISTA TITUS YORK -The "Ain't N Muntain High Enugh" panel at the inaugural Billbard Backstage Pass Turing Cnference raised several pints abut why cnsumers are balking at attending live shws. But Huse f Blues Cncerts executive VP Alex Hdges stated it mst succinctly when he said, "It's nt a debate -it's an abslute fact:" tickets cst t much. The cnfab was held Nv. -9 at the Rsevelt Htel here. The panel, which met the first day, was t debate whether prices have finally peaked. It als aimed t explre the impact that such technlgies as nline ticketing, print - at -hme tickets and auctins will have n prices. Since the tpic f high ticket prices had repeatedly risen during preceding panels, mderatr Judith Herbst, business manager f Keswick Entertainment Grup, tried steering the discussin tward the changing prcess f getting tickets t fans. But the cnversatin kept returning t excessive admissin fees and hw cnsumers are saying n t thse fees with their wallets. Hdges made his cmment while discussing whether there exists a market fr auctins. He nted that while artist guarantees drive prices, "the tp ticket prices always sell; ther peple are auctining tickets fr greater than the face value." But, he cntinued, "the back f the huse and the rafters in the arenas and the lawn at the amphitheaters are ging half -sld. S there's a prblem in hw t figure the scaling f yur prices." Jining Hdges n the panel were Bb Belber, executive directr f bking at facility management firm SMG; Ticketmaster executive VP f strategy and business develpment David Gldberg; Madisn Huse bking agent/manager Mike Luba; tickets.cm executive VP Carl Thmas; and AOL Tickets executive directr Gen Yham. Thmas agreed that the fundamental issue is hw t scale the huse. "The cnsumers have s many chices f hw t spend their entertainment dllar," he said. "There's nt a bad ecnmy; it's bad ecnmics. The mdel's brken... Until at every price level yu're striking a chrd with that cnsumer and that chrd is a balanced value equatin against all the ther chices in the marketplace, yur venues aren't ging t be full." HODGES: TICKETS COST TOO MUCH Luba nted that the industry "needs t fix the entire cncert experience." He said cnsumers are tired f cnvenience charges being added t tickets and then having t frk ver mre mney fr parking, fd, beverages and merchandise. He suggested hlding auctins where such csts are part f a package deal. Thmas said cnvenience charges result frm the millins f dllars that cmpanies such as his and Ticketmaster have invested in advanced technlgy t deliver tickets faster. He explained that the sftware, labr, hardware supprt, efficient Internet transactin engines and balanced n -sale reprts all cst mney, "and the way that ticketing cmpanies make mney is n the service fees." He added that "we are abslutely pen" t creative ways f marketing. Belber acknwledged that add - ns increase a ticket's verall cst, but the prices are already steep. He recalled that the prcess used t be that befre a tur went ut, the parties invlved checked t see the highest price an individual market wuld yield. "A lt f the agents are ut there [nw] saying, `I just want a quarter f a millin dllars per market, I dn't care if it's New Yrk City r Peria,' " Belber said. "That mdel, I think, is what we're partially saying [at] this cnference is brken." THE GREED FACTOR Belber pinted t anther factr: greed. "Older acts that came frm tw, three decades ag are nw cashing ut," he said. "The higher ticket prices are OK with thse bands, because they're getting the high guarantees and they're at the pint in their career where they knw this might be the last tur." As fr the yunger bands, Belber said, "All they think abut is the fan, and they think abut trying t keep the ticket price lw. The lder acts that are cashing ut are causing huge lsses, and thse f us that are in the facility management business knw that's very clear... The reality is [that it] hurts everyne when it happens -buildings give up their rent, in sme cases, maybe ancillaries, [and it] splinters dwn t the municipal cncern that wns the building." Regarding the ways cnsumers purchase tickets, Thmas said there has been a significant shift during the past three years t the Internet as the channel f chice. Hdges stated that wrd -f -muth is the biggest advertiser fr cncerts, and mre peple are buying reserved seats n the Internet than they d fr general admissin. He als thinks there is a market fr auctins. Yham bserved that auctins are becming mre accepted. He related that when artists frm a marketing partnership with AOL t sell tickets and create exclusive cntent, it extends the life f their tur nline. Spnsrships Mving Beynd Signage BY CHRISTOPHER WALSH YORK- Opprtunities abund fr tur spnsrs, accrding t the "This Nte's fr Yu" panel, held Nv. 9 at the Billbard Backstage Pass cnference. The artist- spnsr relatinship, panelists agreed, can result in successful turs that benefit bands, brands and fans. As spnsrship has becme a mainstream prmtinal vehicle and the stigma f "selling ut" has all but disappeared amng recrding artists, marketing budgets applied t tur spnsrships are n the rise, alng with the increasingly creative applicatin f spnsrship dllars and strategies. Marketing dllars have migrated frm traditinal utlets - bradcast and print media -t experiential utreach. It reflects a transitin t effrts better suited t autmbile manufacturers, alchlic beverage brands and games cmpanies like Nintend, Sny and Micrsft. That migratin is ne f tw prfund changes t have a psitive impact in the spnsrship arena, said Brian Murphy, CEO f Fearless Entertainment. Increasingly, Murphy said, cnsumer marketing cmpanies are lking fr ways t reach yung custmers n a ne -t -ne basis. The ther transfrmatin, said Murphy, a frmer Warner Music Grup executive, has taken place at recrd cmpanies. Labels nce saw third -party relatinships as a nn -cre functin. "That has changed fundamentally in that there is nt a music cmpany tday, n the recrd label side and, dare I say, n the live turing side, that desn't lk at the crprate spnsr dllars as a key aspect f hw they d their primary business," Murphy said. "If anything, it has becme the mst cre functin." Ozzfest, which will mark its 0th anniversary in 00, exemplifies the cntemprary tur in which acts and brands exist in harmny with ne anther, Clear Channel Entertainment VP f turing sales Carline Frye said. "Every year, ur spnsrship has grwn significantly as far as the number f spnsrs and spnsrship dllars," she said. "It has been really cl, especially in a festival atmsphere, t see hw brands becme part f the cncept, whether it's buying the recrd and getting it signed at the FYE tent r getting yur T -shirt at the [Jägermeister] tent. Yu can play [Sny] PlayStatin games. It's an extensin f the culture anyway - when a kid ges t a festival, it's just part f their experience." Experiential marketing is especially applicable t audiences f Ozzfest and ther festival cncerts, which, nt cincidentally, are avid cnsumers f videgames as well as CDs. "Sampling," Frye said, "is the N. bjective fr the games cmpanies we're wrking with. They lk at this as a way [fr cnsumers] t sample games, which is extremely imprtant. Like when yu g int a recrd stre, sampling a CD is the best way t mve prduct." SPONSORS GETTING A WARMER WELCOME Cntrary t nw -utdated cnventinal wisdm, fans may even welcme spnsrs fr absrbing expenses in an era f high ticket prices and surcharges. Frye referred t the Vlkswagen Music Ed. tur f clleges in 00 and 00, the car manufacturer's initiative t bst its prfile amng - t - year -lds. CCE c- prduced bth turs. "When yu can d a $ ticket n a cllege campus and the spnsr has underwritten a lt f the csts, the spnsr can be the her with the fan," Frye said. "It all wrks tgether." Amid ecnmic uncertainty and fierce cmpetitin, crpratins are finding spnsrships a wiser apprpriatin f marketing dllars than traditinal advertising. "While ad spending is dwn, spnsrship spending is actually up," said Richard Sherwd, president f Frnt Rw Marketing. "I think a big reasn fr this is that crprate dllars are being reginalized nw, as ppsed t buying at the natinal level." Thrugh lcal and reginal events, Sherwd added, spnsrs can mre accurately target a specific demgraphic with minimal waste. Thugh ticket sales were sft in 00, Sherwd said, crpratins are cmmitted t building a brand thrugh lngterm spnsrships. "The majr crpratins lk at this as a cyclical situatin," he asserted. "One year desn't make r break a spnsrship prgram. I think they're in it fr a three - t five -year situatin where they're building a franchise psitin with a particular event." Rick Zeiler, directr f marketing and brand develpment fr Sidney Frank Imprting, cncurred. Invking his experience with the Jägermeister Music tur -Sydney Frank imprts Jägermeister liqueur -he said, "We have t differentiate ur brand. It's a cmpetitive market ut there. We wanted t put tgether a tur that was special t the bands, the fans and build smething that's ging t be arund fr a lng time."

"Sme peple debate the value f including chain and big -bx accunts, but increasing the size f the panel can breathe new life int the urban charts and give mre flks a vested interest t fllwing them each week," UMVD's Lawrence says. "The urban charts have always been used as the pulse and cre -indicatr base fr urban music, and I believe the industry will cntinue t value them as such."

Vibe Addresses Awards Melee Calls Fr Hip Hp Cmmunity T Develp `Means Of Accuntability' "We're ding the awards shw next year. If we dn't, it will be cunter t all the things we have been able t d with the brand and the culture." S says Vibe magazine president Kenard Gibbs after the fracas that interrupted taping f Vibe's awards shw Nv.. Since then, G -Unit member Yung Buck -wh allegedly stabbed the man wh hit Dr. Dre-is ut n bail after turning himself in t authrities. Calling such vilence "sickening," Gibbs says we have t pnder the hip -hp culture's mentality. "Vilence has unfrtunately been assciated with hip -hp since its beginnings." Gibbs als wnders what negative GIBBS: EXAMINES AWARDS SHOW INCIDENT effects the Vibe altercatin, as well as a recent brawl at an Indiana Pacers- Detrit Pistns game, may have n the marketing strides black art- lues.. By Gail Mitchell ists and athletes have made and n the participatin f hip -hp acts in ther shws. "There's a cmmn theme t all this," Gibbs adds. "Yung black males gne wild. Taking street mentality t reslve cnflict and bringing it int entertainment and sprts has gne unchecked. All f us within the culture have t lk at this and develp sme means f accuntability." Vibe's accuntability hits newsstands shrtly. The magazine's January issue will examine nt nly the awards -night incident but attitudes within hip -hp culture that may bear sme respnsibility. "This is paramunt in terms f understanding what allws things t get t that pint," Gibbs says. "That night tk frm the whle spirit f what the shw is abut: the best in urban music. We still have faith in the culture. We will rise abve and endure."

LEILA COBO Arjna Innvates On CD /DVD Set BY LEILA COBO MIAMI -In a crwded market f new DVD releases, Ricard Arjna's "Sl" stands ut. Released Nv. as a CD /DVD cmb, "Sl" (Sny BMG) is a highly persnal prtrait f Arjna that can best be described as an interactive bipic. "Peple are used t DVDs that are five videclips and a guy sitting n a chair and that's it," says Arjna, speaking ver cffee at a Miami htel. "In this case, the DVD carried the weight. It's the wrk f tw years, where there was huge effrt and where each idea was crazier than the next." The CD cmpanin, als titled "Sl," includes many f Arjna's greatest hits, such as "Mujeres," "Sledad" and "Si El Nrte Fuera Sur," as well as virtually unknwn tracks that were persnal landmarks fr Arjna. Amng them is the current single, "Prqué Es Tan Cruel el Amr," which Arjna riginally wrte when he was. The track is N. n the Billbard Ht Latin Tracks list this week. Like all the sngs n the CD, "Prqué Es Tan Cruel el Amr" has been rerecrded in sparse, elegant arrangements played nly with acustic instruments. "They are the mst imprtant sngs in my career, dressed with very little clthing," says Arjna, wh asked musicians wh have been key t his career -such as pianist Miguel Nuflez and guitarist Junir Cabral - t recrd with him. "But the real weight f this prject, even thugh I'm cnvinced abut the album, is what's n the DVD." An abbreviated versin f the DVD was screened fr Miami media Nv., after which Arjna perfrmed. The DVD is surprisingly intimate fr an artist wh, despite his fame, is ntriusly private. On "Sl," Arjna nt nly pens up his hme and intrduces his children t the camera, he als takes the audience t his native Guatemala t visit his elementary schl, his university and even the hme where he was brn. There are stries f inspiratin, tales f hard kncks and testimnials frm a varied cast f characters, frm Ricky Martin t Rigberta Menchú. A DVD FOR FILM BUFFS While the bvius buyer fr the DVD is the avid Arjna fan, the singer/ sngwriter says he believes film buffs will als be interested because it breaks the steretype f the nrmal musical DVD in a CD package. "Sl" will be screened in several cities, and will be prmted with TV campaigns thrughut Latin America and the United States. In additin t wrking the single t radi, several retail campaigns were launched, including ne with Wal -Mart that allws cnsumers t dwnlad a free preview f the DVD. The tw- frmat push seems t wrk tgether. "Arjna always sells well fr us," says Inés Crtés, reginal marketing manager fr Trans Wrld Entertainment. "Sl," she adds, will be placed in the CD racks because it has a CD and nt a DVD packaging. But the DVD cncept, publicist Diana Barn says, has been instrumental in garnering media interest fr the prject. WHEN HE WAS "Sl" was cnceived and executed by Arjna n his wn. When he tk it t Sny, the label embraced it and suggested recrding the cmpanin CD. It was the label that suggested "Prqué Es Tan Cruel el Amr" as a single even thugh the sng was written almst 0 years ag. "It was the first sng I ever wrte... It's very inncent, very fresh," says Arjna, wh was tempted t change the lyrics fr the new versin but decided t leave his teenage thughts intact. In leaving things exactly as they were, Arjna is being faithful t his prject, which dcuments the gd alng with the bad. One f the tpics tuched upn, fr example, was his failure t get a recrd deal. Sny Mexic rejected him several times befre signing him. Afterward, Arjna's scially cnscius lyrics prpelled his albums up the charts. Lking at the current state f the business, Arjna sees a cnnectin. "Recrd labels are realizing that the nly way t sell albums is with excited peple. That means thse wh make the albums and thse wh buy them," he says. "And fr peple t be terribly excited abut an album, the persn wh made it had t be terribly excited as well. Nw in Latin America, each day we see [fewer] pretty faces and mre peple wh have smething t say." Music Slphnic Brand Fr Clubs, Sandwiches New Yrk independent label Slphnic has been creating quite a name fr itself in the wrld f lifestyle marketing via branded cmpilatins fr butique htels, trendy restaurants, lunges and fashin salns. Slphnic funder Jay Friedlander says the cmpany is wrking n several prjects, including custmized CDs fr a new gurmet sandwich chain, Starwich. Slphnic has als signed a distributin deal with Musicrama, which will help secure prper placement fr the label's new beat - mixed cmpilatin, "Escape: St. Barth's." The breezy and sulful cllectin includes there is an inherent danger in featuring numerus vcalists and musical styles n ne album, he believes he struck the perfect balance. "It culd have been like a cmpilatin gne wrng," he says. "But this still sunds like me. If I wuld DJ, this is what I wuld play tday." SOUND BITES: Fans f Everything Beat Bx..

Similarly, he says his 000 disc, "In the Mde," was made fr the stage. "It was nt made frm a DJ pint f view."

23 un ry Music BY JIM BESSMAN Thanks t a big year full f awards shw wins and majr TV expsure fr Alisn Krauss + Unin Statin, Runder Recrds is understandably upbeat abut the cmmercial prspects fr "Lnely Runs Bth Ways," the act's first studi album in three years. Krauss is als enthusiastic abut the album - released Nv. -but fr a different reasn. "I'm just excited because it's dne," says Krauss, a ntriusly tardy prductin perfectinist 'We finished at the last secnd pssible." But she and the band made use f every mment f the -mnth n -andff prject. "It didn't feel cmplete until the last tracking sessin," she says. STORIES BEHIND THE SONGS Unin Statin guitarist Dan Tyminski's cver f Del McCury's "Rain Please G Away" helped "fill in the blanks" at the end, as did Krauss' versin f Dnna Hughes' "Pr Old Heart." "That was the last tune we fund fr me," she ntes. `Barry Bales heard ne f her sngs n the radi while driving arund near his hme in East Tennessee. He called her, and she sent a whle bunch f sngs. We recrded it Krauss + Unin Statin A Hit 'Bth Ways' in a secnd." Other sngs came frm Krauss' sngwriter favrites Sidney and Suzanne Cx, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, and Unin Statin banjist Rn Blck and dbr virtus Jerry Duglas. Wdy Guthrie's "Pastures f Plenty," with an arrangement pat - temed after bluegrass banjist Dave Evans' versin, prvided Tyminski with anther vcal shwcase. The lead single, the Rbert Lee Castleman- penned "Restless," was the act's first N. hit in Billbard: It recently tpped the Ht Cuntry Singles Sales chart. Krauss' nly ther brush with N. came when she and Billy Dean added vcal parts t Kenny Rgers' chart- tpping 000 hit "Buy Me a Rse." There's als `This Sad Sng," which Krauss c-wrte years ag with frmer Unin Statin banjist Alisn Brwn. "We made that up in the back f a van when I was," says Krauss, wh had signed with Runder three years prir. "The guys have wanted t recrd it frever, but I said n and really fught t nt have it n the recrd. I said I'd feel better if they put it under a different name s peple wuldn't think it was me, r say I was a high -schler [at the time]. But I guess it's OK if nbdy listens t the lyrics clsely." Buyed by the cntents f "Lnely Runs Bth Ways" and Krauss' incredible media expsure during the last year, Runder GM Paul Fley feels that the album `withut dubt will be Alisn Krauss + Unin Statin's biggest recrd ever. Certainly it's ur largest ship ever -at least 00,000." Predicting that the act's preceding album, "Alisn Krauss + Unin Statin Live" (00), will reach duble -platinum by the end f the year, Fley says that accunts are "just as excited" as the label abut the new disc. "The respnse, tp t bttm, has been verwhelming," he says. "The sense is that this is Alisn's time." Jhn Brnicki, music buyer fr Brders Bks & Music, agrees. "It's prbably ging t be the biggest success fr her," he says, "which is hard t imagine cnsidering what she sld n the last cuple albums and the live ne especially. But she has been a busy girl the last year and definitely in the public eye, s this ne shuld far surpass her thers." Krauss' year has included winning Grammy Awards and, mre recently, Cuntry Music Assn. Awards, the latter fr her hit duet with Brad Paisley, "Whiskey Lullaby." There have als been TV perfrmances, including the Academy Awards, CMT Flamewrthy Music Awards, the PBS Natinal Memrial Day Cncert, the Ryder Cup pening ceremnies and the CMA Awards. Brders utlets will feature "Lnely Runs Bth Ways" in tw prminent lcatins, Brnicki says. "One will be what we call a `rlling display cart' fixture at the frnt entrance f the stre, with multiple face -uts f her recrd. We'll als incrprate an - inch -by- -inch graphic in the music department with prduct placement arund that. This will be frm street date past Jan., s there will be high visibility - and then we'll g int listening prgrams in January." Surprisingly, Fley is equally enthusiastic abut radi supprt fr the band. "Cuntry radi hasn't played them much ver the last few years, and her success has been driven by press, CMT and retail supprt," he explains. "But cming ff the Brad [Paisley] single and all the feedback we're getting, cuntry radi is ready t play Alisn." Runder is buttressing retail and radi supprt with a majr TV campaign. It will include CMT spts frm the weekend befre Thanksgiving thrugh Christmas and natinal buys sltted just befre the mrning news shws "s everybdy in the cuntry knws this album is available," Fley says. TV perfrmances will include "The Tnight Shw With Jay Len" Nv. and "Gd Mrning America" Dec. 0, with appearances n "The Early Shw" and the Charlie Rse talk shw als slated. Krauss, wh is managed by Nashville -based DS Management and bked by Nashville's Keith Case & Assciates, will kick ff the first leg f a lengthy tur Dec. in Evansville, Ind. Allen: U.S. Cuntry Acts Lack Internatinal Presence Bruce Allen knws hw t stir up cntrversy. During a recent keynte speech at the Cuntry Music Assn.'s Glbal Markets Frum in Nashville, Allen said few cuntry artists have careers utside the United States because mst aren't willing t wrk fr it. Allen, the president f Vancuver - based management firm Bruce Allen Talent, whse clients include Martina McBride and Anne Murray, said at the Nv. 0 event that he is disillusined with the glbal reach f cuntry music and the effrts f its artists t expand int internatinal markets. "I dn't see cuntry music making an impact anywhere [else], including my hme cuntry f Canada," he said. "Hw hard is it t wrk Canada? Yu culd cver the cuntry in a week and sales wuld duble." Allen said cuntry music in the glbal marketplace has "a prblem. Make n mistake abut that." In Allen's view, nly ne artist, Canadian Shania Twain, has a truly glbal career, and he says her ability t crss ver t the pp mainstream was a critical element in her internatinal success. Faith Hill and LeAnn Rimes have sme internatinal presence, Allen allwed, but they are "miles behind Shania." Twain is managed by Q -Prime Management. "She was always imaged crrectly," he said f Twain, nting that in publicity phts f her there was "nt a bt, spur, fireplace r cactus." Cuntry artists wh sing with a twangy accent and perfrm sngs whse lyrics are "children's stries," he said, are much mre likely t turn ff audiences verseas. He als said internatinal labels are mre likely t cncentrate n wrking U.S. acts with crssver appeal, nt thse with hats r accents. "If the cnsumer is scratching their heads, yu're dead. "Cuntry is indigenus, white sul music," Allen cntinued. "That's why it's hard fr cuntry t cnnect in sme glbal markets." But he als said artists are unwilling t wrk t earn an internatinal fan base, saying U.S. cuntry artists' excuses fr perfrming verseas are "bad fd, t far and nt wrth it." "Artists have t wrk the market and they have t shw up, and that means mre than ne visit," he said. "They have t be willing t get n a plane and g t Eurpe and d the big TV shws. In Eurpe, if yu d the right TV and have the right image, yu can get a fthld. And if yu can get a fthld, yu can kick the dr dwn." Allen thinks the internatinal markets with the mst prspects fr U.S. cuntry artists are Ireland, Canada, Australia and, t sme extent, the United Kingdm. But while thse markets may have mre f an penness t embracing cuntry, he said, "it takes wrk" And as lng as Nashville artists are "rmanced" by fairs and festivals - sft ticket events where they can make mney -Allen thinks it will always be tugh t get them t try their luck verseas.

26 Music billbard picks ALBUMS Edited by Michael Paletta POP. SOUNDTRACK Grand Theft Aut: San Andreas PRODUCERS: varius Rckstar Games /Interscpe B000 RELEASE DATE: Nv. Prir t its Oct. street date, Play - Statin 's videgame "Grand Theft Aut: San Andreas" had pre- rders f nearly millin. Indeed, the demand fr this three -disc set (tw CDs, ne DVD) is pised t be equally strng. The "San Andreas" game is set in the early '90s and sptlights the diverse music that was heard n West Cast radi at that time. The tw CDs included here cull tracks frm the eight -disc "San Andreas" bxed set, due Dec.. Featured artists run the gamut frm James Brwn and Public Enemy t Heart and Rage Against the Machine. AFI's new cver f Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like a Hle" adds a cntemprary twist t an early -'90s staple. Fr many, thugh, the DVD sundtrack will be the real star here. This prequel, titled "The Intrductin," ffers sme much -needed backgrund inf. MP RAMMSTEIN Reise, Reise PRODUCERS: Jacb Hellner, Rammstein Universal 90 RELEASE DATE: Nv. Music's ability t functin as an internatinal language accunts fr why such acts as German heres Rammstein have been able t build an American fllwing. Hwever, when the cnverted hear new album "Reise, Reise," they will discver that the industrialist band is feeling a little nilmetal these days. Its buzz -saw guitars and machine -like synth backgrunds ( "Reise, Reise," the unrelenting "Mein Teil ") cement its rts in the genre befre taking a turn int territry ften ccupied by Krn ( "Dalai Lama "). " Keine Lust" is a sht f adrenaline DJs shuld wisely pump int the clubs, but the minimalist "Ls," which rides n bass and duble - dutch drum beats, is a danceflr sneak attack waiting t happen. The sparser arrangement carries ver t "Amur," anther piece that culd d damage at radi if a versin was cut with English lyrics. "Stein Um Stein" is a sludgy dirge that scales back n the temp; the time change cntinues with the ballad "Ohne Dich." Expect "Reise, Reise" t maintain Rammstein's American strnghld. -CLT RUFUS WAINWRIGHT Want Tw PRODUCERS: Marius de Vries, Rufus Wainwright Geffen B000 RELEASE DATE: Nv. We dn't blame Rufus Wainwright fr making an indulgent album. His vice is beautiful, his phrasing adventurus and his arrangements intense. "Want lin" is an apprpriate respnse t last year's self -cnscius disc, "Want One," a full E S S E N T I A L U Hw t Dismantle an Atmic Bmb PRODUCERS: varius Interscpe B00000 RELEASE DATE: Nv. If every sng n U's new album was as catchy as lead track 'Vertig," it wuld amunt t a reinventin f the band. But "Hw t Dismantle an Atmic Bmb" is quintessential U, taken t the next level. The sund is bigger, the playing better, the lyrics sharper and the spirituality mre cmpelling than anything the act has dne in many years. While a fistful f ld friends (Brian En and Daniel Lanis n "Lve and Peace," fr example) ffer additinal prductin t that f main prducer Steve Lilly - white, "Bmb" is nt cluttered. The Edge has never played with greater cnfidence (apparent n the DVD) and Bn's mature phrasing puts his well - crafted wrds acrss with cnvictin. Sngwriting may be the mst impressive part f a recrd n which U scales new peaks: Frm the gspel f "Lay Dwn" t the majestic "Smetimes Yu Can't Make It n Yur Own," the album is full f great sngs, perfrmed with the vitality f a band that keeps surprising us by simply being itself. -WR expsure f his classical and cabaret pedigree under the thin guise f pp. With fleshy string arrangements and grandise meldy lines, Wainwright clearly subscribes t the "if yu've gt it, flaunt it" schl. But the material culd stand a bit f pruning -as "One" and "'Iiv" yield sme f the same prduce, they might as well have cme frm the same tree. And, much like his previus three albums, Wainwright has a way f saying much but revealing little; with such a thematically sensitive album, intimacy is just ut f reach, intentinally r nt. Regardless, Wainwright achieves much as a maturing sngwriter with "Want iv," his errant siren sngs served well by his vanity, libid and nble intentins. -KH R&D/HIP-HOP FANTASIA Free Yurself PRODUCERS: varius 9 Entertainment/. - RELEASE DATE: Nv. Reigning "American Idl" queen Fantasia makes a self -assured debut that belies her nvice stature. After listening t this -sng set, the uninitiated can SNOOP DOGG R &G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece PRODUCERS: varius Dggystyle /Star Trak /Geffen B000 RELEASE DATE: Nv. Eleven years after his debut, Snp Dgg remains as relevant and rambunctius as ever. "R &G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece," his seventh studi set, is ff t a great start with lead single "Drp It Like It's Ht," which was prduced by the Neptunes (wh c- executive -prduced the album) and features Pharrell. The track's tngue- clicking accents and MIMI it It Tar nt,,,,",,,:,^ rp -t)g synthed -sampled bunce are irresistible. Meanwhile, "Snp D.O. Duble G" is reminiscent f his early Death Rw catalg. A lver f the ladies, Snp delivers the gds n "Perfect," a midtemp grver with the Gap Band's Charlie Wilsn. It's ne f thse just -right tracks fr a late -night drive with that special smene. Other highlights include "Oh N" (featuring 0 Cent) and the trunk -infused "Step Y Game Up" (with Lil Jn and Trina). -RH appreciate the talent f this yung singer with the sphisticated, Tina Turner -esque vice. Under the directin f such marquee names as Missy Ellitt, Rdney Jerkins and Sulshck & Karlin, Fantasia's vcals are put t gd use. The Fantasia/Ellitt pairing wrks t full effect n "Selfish (I Want U Myself)," ne f three cuts the female rapper prduced and c- wrte. A church -infused versin f "Yu Were Always n My Mind " -cvered ntably by Willie Nelsn -is anther pleasant surprise. And yu can just picture the vide that culd be made t supprt the step -lively, single- mther anthem "Baby Mama." One jarring mment n this cntemprary R &B uting is Fantasia's renditin f the Gershwin classic "Summertime," her signature sng during the "Idl" cntest. Simply put, it des nt fit within this cntext. -GM LIL JON & THE EAST SIDE BOYZ Crunk Juice PRODUCERS: varius BME /TVT 9 RELEASE DATE: Nv. There is n dubt that there is a demand fr all things Lil Jn right nw. Need prf? This album was s highly anticipated that many retailers began R E V I E W S GWEN STEFANI Lve, Angel, Music, Baby PRODUCERS: varius Interscpe B0009 RELEASE DATE: Nv. Yu wn't find much self -revelatin n Gwen Stefani's sl debut. The N Dubt frntwman prves t be even mre f a musical chamelen than anther famusly prvcative blnde singer /fashin icn. But Stefani is nt shy abut admitting the cllabrative effrt behind "Lve, Angel, Music, Baby," which invlved a wealth f well - knwn prducers. Paradxically, the track with the mst persnal lyrics ( "Cl ") is the ne that sunds mst like a N Dubt uttake. Stefani instead asserts herself thrugh her musical chices, adding her stamp t the signature sunds f, amng thers, the Neptunes and Dr. Dre (wh delivers the standut "Rich Girl," which reunites Stefani and Eve). The album shuttles breathlessly frm '0s new wave and funk (What Yu Waiting Fr? ") t millennial hip -hp ( "Luxurius" samples the Isley Brthers). Style trumps substance in Stefani's wrld, making "Lve, Angel, Music, Baby" an ideal guilty pleasure. -!M selling it days ahead f its scheduled release. Frtunately, this is ne time where the prduct des meet its expectatins. "Crunk Juice" is the aural equivalent f the alchlic cncctin it is named fr -strng, infectius and having the ptential t start a rit. The kinetic lead single, "What Yu Gn' D" (featuring Lil Scrappy), is a prime example. At the same time, Jn, Lil B and Big Sam als have a few surprises up their sleeves. The tri teams with Usher and Ludacris n the grving ballad "Lvers and Friends." They als mine g -g funk n the DJ Kl- featured "Aww Skeet Skeet" and Slayer's metal sunds n the Rick Rubin -prduced "Dn't F * ** Wit Me." The result is a nnstp party. "Crunk Juice" als features such A- listers as R. Kelly, Snp Dgg and Chris Rck. -RH CHINGY Pwerballin' PRODUCERS: varius Capitl 9 RELEASE DATE: Nv. Fr the fllw -up t his multiplatinum debut, "Jackpt," Chingy has crafted "Pwerballin'." The set marks a turning pint in the St. Luis MC's yung career. Having parted ways with Ludacris and his Disturbing Tha Peace clique, he nw has t make a name fr himself and his G.I.B. crew. Lead single "Balla Baby" is an affable attempt in that directin. Prduced by Lil' Mack, the sng is driven by its infectius, sing - sngy hk with Chingy's Midwestern, twangy flw buncing right alng. His mre R &B- influenced fare, whether teaming with Janet Jacksn n "Dn't Wrry" r R. Kelly n "Leave Wit Me," is equally effective. Hwever, the cnstant talk f expensive cars, gyrating wmen and endless parties quickly becmes redundant -and bring. Despite the few highlights, "Pwerballin' " sunds all t familiar-rh DANCE /ELECTRONIC * D:FUSE Begin PRODUCERS: D:Fuse, Blueletter, Pete Lrimer, Mark Nrwd System Recrdings SYS0 RELEASE DATE: Nv. Prgressive huse and trance DJ D:Fuse has helmed a handful f DJmix cmpilatins. With "Begin," he embarks n his wn jurney as a prper artist. Thse expecting a cllectin slely cnsisting f banging beats and rhythms will be disappinted. Instead, D:Fuse infuses his spacius snic landscape with enugh peaks and valleys fr a range f emtins t run thrugh it. On fur sngs, including the jangly "Letter t a Friend," D:Fuse deftly handles vcal duties. Elsewhere, he sptlights Jes (f Mtrcycle), Pete Lrimer (aka 9 Palms) and thers. "Everything With Yu" and "Living the Dream," bth featuring Jes, are dance - flr anthems. Cnversely, the dwn - temp "Int Me" finds Jes entering Marianne Faithfull territry. The Lrimer -frnted "A Light Less Brken" is smth -sailing huse music. A beautifully ambient remix f "Living the Dream" clses the album. Cnsider this ne auspicius beginning. -MP WORLD * MONICA SALMASO laiá PRODUCER: Rdlf Streter Wrld Village 0 RELEASE DATE: Nv. 9 The thing t remember abut Sà Pal native Mônica Salmas is that she is the mst pure singer in Brazil tday. She has, frm the utset f her career, pssessed a vice with a remarkable clarity, which is matched by Salmas's frmidable interpretive gift. "laiá," her third album, finds the artist giving expressin t a sundry cllectin f tunes that, as a whle, cnstitute a superb CD. Cnsider her bittersweet versin f " Vingança," a sng in the tada style that tells f lve fund and lst. "Vingança" desn't just tell a stry; Salmas's vcal, supprted by the brilliant cntributins f Nailr "Prveta" Azeved and Tninh Ferragutti, creates a visin. Her perfrmance n "Cidade Laga," tracked with Quintet Sujeit a Guinch, demnstrates the suppleness f her vice. This is a sly samba, but Salmas rules it with ease. (Cntinued n next page) CONTRIBUTORS.

Distributed by Harmnia Mundi. -PVV CHRISTIAN JEREMY CAMP Restred PRODUCERS: Aarn Sprinkle, Adam Watts, Andy Ddd BEC Recrdings BED9 RELEASE DATE: Nv. In smewhat f an upset, this Indiana newcmer walked away with the male vcalist f the year acclade during the Gspel Music Assn.'s Dve Awards in April. One listen t this impressive cllectin makes it easy t hear why Camp tk the prize. He's a pwerful cmmunicatr with a vice that pssesses cnsiderable depth, range and emtinal intensity, alng with a texture and edge that lend an extra pignancy t these well- written sngs, the bulk f which Camp penned himself. He knws hw t write infectius hks and anthemic chruses, as evidenced by the ptent "Even When." The title cut is a mdern -day classic revealing Gd's grace and mercy, a theme that reverberates thrugh the disc. Other standut cuts include "Breathe," "My Desire" and "Nthing Else I Need. " -DEP VITAL REISSUES NIRVANA With the Lights Out PRODUCERS: varius DGC B000 RELEASE DATE: Nv. Icn, drug addict, vice f a generatin, self -lathing slacker: The late Kurt Cbain was all this and mre during his t brief years n earth. In between, the music he frged with Nirvana just happened t turn the wrld n its ear. The band's legacy finally gets the lavish treatment it deserves n this fur -disc bx, runding up everything frm thrat -shredding Zeppelin cvers, radi sessins and rehearsal jams t never - released riginals ( "If Yu Must," "Old Age," "Anrexrcist ") and Cbain's haunting sl dems ( "Rape Me," "Yu Knw Yu're Right," "All Aplgies "). The DVD basts amusing early tur ftage plus the live debuts f "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Pennyryal Tea," ptent prf f Nirvana's nstage fercity. A revelatry, emtinal listen frm start t finish, "With the Lights Out" crystallizes Cbain's trtured genius. What a shame we'll never knw what culd have been.-c MICHAEL JACKSON The Ultimate Cllectin PRODUCERS: varius Epic /Legacy 900 RELEASE DATE: Nv. This fur -CD cllectin is intended fr thse fans f Michael Jacksn wh want the smash sngs but als demand unreleased and rare material. Unfrtunately, because Jacksn has s many hits, sme are missing frm this set in favr f the new tracks. What big singles are missing? Quite a few, actually: "Say Say Say" with Paul McCartney and the Jacksn 's "Never Can Say Gdbye," fr starters. "The Ultimate Cllectin" des prvide a slid verview f the legend's career - frm the Jacksn and his early sl wrk with Mtwn thrugh the Jack - sns era and his Epic sl career. Rare gems include the funky tri f "Sunset Driver," "Cheater" and "Mnkey Business." One f the mst recently recrded, unreleased cuts, "Fall Again," was prduced and written by Walter Afanasieff and Rbin Thicke. It's a lvely ballad that culd have been a hit single. Als included is a DVD f Jacksn's Dangerus tur cncert frm Bucharest in 99. -KC DVD EVANESCENCE Anywhere but Hme Wind -up 00-0 RELEASE DATE: Nv. Fr all the dark mdiness its music cntains, Evanescence's first live CD/DVD package, "Anywhere but Hme," is a snapsht f a gd- natured band enjying the mnths it spent n the rad behind its breakthrugh album, "Fallen." Onstage at a Paris cncert, frntwman Amy Lee alternates between whirling like a gthic ballerina and sedately playing the ivries; drummer Rcky Gray, guitarists Jhn LeCmpt and Terry Balsam and bassist William Byd rck as determinedly as she sings. Bathed in sapphire- clred lights, Evanescence rips thrugh tunes, perfrming as tightly n clsing sng "Whisper" as it des n pener "Haunted." Highlights are the different dimensin the band adds t Krn's "Thughtless" and hw it turns "Farther Away" int a thrbbing primal scream. The unity the audience feels during "My Immrtal" is shwn in an aerial sht f the crwd swaying and singing alng with Lee's pian. The DVD's extras expse the quintet as a pack f gfy pranksters. -CLT HOLIDAY DIANNE REEVES Christmas Time Is Here PRODUCERS: Dianne Reeves, Peter Martin Blue Nte VANESSA WILLIAMS Silver & Gld PRODUCER: Rb Mathes Lava 999 DANNY WRIGHT An Intimate Christmas PRODUCER: Danny Wright Atc CLAY AIKEN Merry Christmas With Lve PRODUCERS: Phil Ramne, Water Afanasieff RCA SOUNDTRACK The Plar Express PRODUCERS: varius Warner Sunset /Reprise 9 Billbard,cm Pearl Jam, "Rearviewmirrr: (Greatest Hits 99-00)" (Epic) American Music Club, "Lve Sngs fr Patrits" (Merge) Jhn Fahey, "The Great Santa Barbara Oil Slick" (Water) SINGLES Edited by Michael Paletta MODERN ROCK THE KILLERS Mr. Brightside (:) PRODUCERS: the Killers, Jeff Saltzman WRITERS: B. Flwers, D. Keuning PUBLISHER: the Killers (ASCAP) Island ISLR 9 (CD prm) Thse wh lved the G -G's "Vacatin" will be delighted by the Killers' new single, "Mr. Brightside." The anthemic sng isn't a cpycat, but its heavy synthesizers, pppy rck guitars and manic glee will remind listeners f that peppy '0s tuchstne. This hmage t new wave dance is what teen slumber parties and rller rinks nce thrived n -and what sme peple still d. As with "Vacatin," it's incredibly easy t get swept up in the irresistible beat, which is a gd fil t the heartache- steeped lyrics: "Jealusy, turning saints int the sea/swimming thrugh sick lullabies /Chking n yur alibis." This is a slid bet t match the success f the Killers' "Smebdy Tld Me," which cntinues t get played n radi and in dance clubs. With "Mr. Brightside," the band -alng with its debut album, "Ht Fuss "-will gain a few mre fans. This is ne act that's getting htter by the minute. -CLT THE PRODIGY Ht Ride (:0) PRODUCER: Liam Hwlett WRITERS: L. Hwlett, J. Webb PUBLISHERS: EMI Music; EMI Ssaha Music /Jnathan Three Music REMIXER: El Batri XL Recrdings /Mute /Maverick 0 (CD prm) "Ht Ride" is the newest single frm the Prdigy's latest uting, the musically sptty "Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned." It is, withut questin, the album's high pint. In signature Prdigy style, the beats cme hard and fast. The guitar wrk is just as furius. Actress /singer Juliette Lewis (the "Natural Brn Killers" star nw frnts the grup Juliette & the Licks) handles the vcal chres with ample rck star attitude. Her delivery is tugh and in yur face. The sng pays hmage t the th Dimensin's 9 tp 0 hit, "Up, Up and Away," with Lewis seductively snarling, "Up, up and away/in my beautiful /My beautiful/balln." While the R &B vcal quintet likely never imagined its sng being used in this cntext, it wrks beautifully. Of curse, whether mdern rck and dance/electrnic enthusiasts will care remains t be seen. MP COUNTRY KEITH URBAN Yu're My Better Half (:) PRODUCERS: Dann Huff, Keith Urban WRITERS: J. Shanks, K.

Nt what we had hped fr, but a testament t Fantasia's talent, nnetheless. -CT Urban has been steadily gaining mmentum, fueled by a slid string f hit singles. This new entry frm his "Be Here" album makes an impressive additin t his résumé. The prductin is light and breezy, and the temp will help prgrammers stave ff the winter dldrums. Penned by Urban and Jhn Shanks, the lyric paints a sweet prtrait f dmestic bliss, the kind f lve that makes it easier t endure a hard day at wrk because f the prize waiting at hme.

Released Sept. n Luther's Rebel Sul Recrds, the sphmre prj- ect frm Luther is distributed by Image Entertainment. Luther hails frm San Francisc's Hunters Pint neighbrhd. His rebellin against cnventin revealed itself early: The pian -playing chirby ditched the ivries fr the guitar after hearing the raucus sunds f Parliament /Funkadelic. Luther's eclectic amalgamatin f funk, rck and sul first made waves n his 000 self -released album "The Calling." "Rebel Sul Music" displays mre f Luther's style that can be described as Jimi Hendrix meets Sly Stne and Eddie Van Halen. Further eschewing tday's ckie -cutter mentality, Luther cuples his music with earthy, gspel- tinged vcals and thught- engaging lyrics. Hearing is believing, especially n the empwerment anthem "Rise" and the ghett -drawn missive "Ms. America." Luther has tured as the pening act fr the Rts and Cmmn. And he has since becme bicastal, als hanging his guitar strap in NewYrk's Harlem neighbrhd, where his Rebel Sul label is based. "The black culture still has a limitatin n what's fly," Luther says f his alternative stance. "But there's n need t have a clsed mind.

Because bth sides f these CD /DVD hybrids cntain ptical data, it has been impssible t apply graphics t them. But MediaCat technlgy frm Spectra Systems, a develper f systems fr marking, tracking and authenticating dcuments and prducts, has pened the dr t graphics, text and barcdes n the "play" side f a disc. Prvidence, R.I. -based Spectra Systems says MediaCat is cmpatible with all prerecrded ptical media frmats, as well as the next -generatin HD -DVD and Blu -ray frmats. The cmpany als claims that the technlgy ffers imprved disc durability thrugh increased scratch resistance. Develpment and cmmercializatin f MediaCat will be handled jintly by Spectra Systems and Hanau, Germany - based Singulus Technlgies, a manufacturer f replicatin lines fr ptical disc frmats. Digital Valley was the first Eurpean replicatr t cmmercially prduce DVD[plus] discs, and the Val de Reuil, France -based cmpany is als first t prduce discs using the MediaCat technlgy. The first client t incrprate MediaCat is Vidé Futur, France's largest DVD rental franchise. The cmpany's lg is featured n the data side f its discs. Spectra Systems CEO Dr. Nabil Lawandy envisins such messaging and marketing pprtunities as the chief applicatin fr MediaCat n single -sided sftware, gaming, vide and audi discs. But the ability t apply graphics and text t dual -sided discs will make DualDisc and DVD[plus] mre attractive t labels and cnsumers alike, he says. "The driving market frce that gt us interested in [develp - ing MediaCat] was the interest in duble -sided ptical media," Lawandy says. "In particular. we are targeting duble -sided discs fr music, d C disgust Magg* d'un prpdi exclusif de prtectin pur vtre plus valid tdfrt.,,,,.,,r. *Nit.. a Nl.ra lea _ r like DVD[plus]." MediaCat is an add -n prcess that takes place at the end f a standard disc -manufacturing line, Lawandy explains. A cating is applied and cured, then an image is transferred t the disc using ultravilet irradiatin. A secnd cat is added t prtect the disc frm excessive expsure t light and t add scratch resistance. "Vidé Futur are enjying the benefits f messaging," Lawandy says. "They are enjying the secnd -layer MediaCat, [which prvides] an incredible scratch resistance: They're getting mre turns n the disc. And they're enjying a level f security, because nw they knw they get their discs back." Asked abut the technlgy, executives frm ne U.S. -based label prducing Dual - Discs expressed n knwledge f MediaCat. Andrew DaPuzz, directr f sales audi fr replicatr Snpress, says nly that his cmpany has lked int the applicatin f graphics t the data side f ptical discs, particularly tw -sided nes. "We certainly investigate any new technlgies like that and are interested in them," DaPuzz says. "If the DualDisc is successful, and we hpe it is, this srt f technlgy wuld certainly help."

Yet Hsner is well aware that the label can't becme t bsessed with reaching bx retailers. "When yu're nly shipping 0,000 recrds, yu can't specialize with ne chain," he ntes. "We can't get a band t 0,000 withut indie retail. Once we get t 0,000, that's when we'll cnsider graduating them t the next level.

At Hastings' cnventin in Octber, chairman/ceo Jhn Marmaduke said the cmpany cntinues t benefit frm its three -acrss cncept, which divides each stre int bk, mvie and lifestyle sectins.

Marmaduke said he expects t cntinue filling the 0 states where Hastings already has stres. He als said the chain will stick with free -standing r strip- center sites. "We think the mall is stale and at risk," he said. "S we are adding `tweener' prduct, because we think we can take that custmer away frm the mall and wn them." In additin t using space efficiently -allwing,000 square feet f merchandise t fit int 0,000 square feet- threeacrss allws Hastings t better serve its custmer base, accrding t Marmaduke.

One vendr, Randm Huse Nrth America COO Dn Weissberg, tld Hastings managers during his keynte address: "I will never be pr -used bks."

Lil Jn (abve) & Byz, Sevendust, Yang Yang Twins, Pitbull (belw) an Ltd. are part f TVT's rster. and CD presales via artist sites. Gartner G analyst Mike McGuire says the direct -tcnsumer digital mdel can help labels develp a ne -n-ne relatinship with the cnsumer -a lng- sught -after cnnectin that labels d nt get with traditinal retail mdels. A direct strategy als allws labels t release cntent n a staggered basis -fr example, thrugh a Web site first and at retail later -and t establish mre niche -riented cntent ffers. Thse types f ffers, targeted at a band's cre fans, d nt necessarily require a traditinal retailer t facilitate the transactin, McGuire ntes. That gives labels a chance t realize better margins, as well as gain a better understanding f their cnsumers. TVT's new stre (tvtrecrds.navi.cm) is pwered by Navi Systems, a Cuperthe East Side tin, Calif. -based prvider f rights -based cmmerce slutins. Navi technlgy d Ambulance enables TVT t distribute multiple digital prduct frmats t cnsumers - including mbile cntent and dwnlads -in a single transactin. TVT will use the MP frmat fr individual sng dwnlads and digital albums. Fr labels, the difficult part f the direct - sales mdel is keeping pace with larger players that traditinally have cntrlled custmer relatinships and have develped brands t which custmers relate. Labels face the challenge "f creating demand and driving traffic," McGuire says. "The larger nline stres have established themselves pretty well. They're already wrking with a lt f the independents." Still, TVT is cnfident that it can partner with third -party spnsrs t drive awareness f its new site. The label is als hping t use rewards prgrams t generate grassrts album prmtin. "The site," Gttlieb says, "is built t reward cnsumers wh virally prmte ur artists and cntent." /TECH Innvatin, hwever, cmes at a price -and a trade -ff in size.

34 Sngwriters & Publishers Musicals As Teaching Tls The TV dcumentary "Children Will Listen," which debuted n PBS Thanksgiving night, demnstrated the cmeback f musical theater in schls. It used a Kennedy Center prductin f Stephen Sndheim's "Int the Wds" by Washingtn, D.C., kids as its anchr. Sndheim's fairy-tale- inspired shw -which ends with the sng "Children Will Listen "-was part f the "Bradway Junir Cllectin" f musicals represented by Music Theatre Internatinal, a New Yrk - based theatrical licensr fr which SESAC c- chairman Freddie Gershn serves as chairman/ceo. "Children will listen -and I knw that they d," says Gershn, wh is als c- executive prducer f the SONDHEIM: KIDS USED HIS 'WOODS' dcumentary. He cites an evaluatin f New Yrk public schls serving pverty-level demgraphics that have participated in the Bradway Junir prgram, which he launched in 99. " l\v schls did `Guys and Dlls Junir' and ne did `Annie Junir,' " Gershn says. "We went back the fllwing year t bserve the children and interview parents, teachers and principals and saw persnal grwth and maturing in a prductive way. I'm nt talking abut turning a kid int Bernadette Peters r Nathan Lane r teaching them hw t read music r a script better. But in 'Annie,' fr instance, they learn abut the stck market crash, the Depressin, the New Deal, Herbert Hver and Franklin Delan Rsevelt -the things we take fr granted when we see the shw but that these kids are learning abut fr the first time." These histry lessns, Gershn adds, are delivered mre effectively via theater than the traditinal manner f the teacher lecturing in a classrm. Perhaps mre significant, hwever, is the scial instructin. "They als learn hw t get alng with each ther, self -cnfidence and discipline and scial behavir," Ger- shn cntinues. "Yu can't put n a shw if yu're rwdy, and this is the first time in their lives where they're put in an event where they Wrds& Music. By Jim Bessman have t wrk with each ther and share respnsibility. In effect, what they're ding is creating a micrcsm f sciety where they learn that everyne has different rles - whether they walk nstage r wrk the lights r sund -and hpefully we avid things like Clumbine where smene feels islated." Created simultaneusly is "a schl cmmunity," Gershn adds, invlving interactin with teachers and parents "wh might nt therwise shw up at schl unless they were called in t hear their kid was bad." But the Bradway Junir prductins have an impact n the crn - psers as well. "I tk Sheldn Harnick and Jerry Bck t see 'Fiddler n the Rf Junir' at a schl in New Yrk, with Tevye played by a Bangladeshi by and his wife played GERSHON: 'CHILDREN WILL LISTEN' by a Japanese -American girl, and the rest f the cast was mstly black and Latin kids," Gershn recalls. "When they sang `Traditin,' the audience was in tears because it was made up f families wh culd identify thrugh their wn traditins -and Harnick and Bck were crying because they never thught their legacy wuld live n like this. "I brught Sndheim t the Kennedy Center rehearsal and he just started t cry: A lt f them were inner -city kids wh reinvented the music t their wn sensibility and hip -hp culture, and he lved it because he felt his legacy was being adapted by them -and they were having a gd time." Sndheim appears in "Children Will Listen," as des Peters, wh starred in the riginal 9 Bradway prductin f "Int the Wds." "[Sndheim] was s prud because he feels that teaching is the mst wnderful thing yu can d," Gershn ntes. "He said that unless he had great teachers wh mentred him, he culdn't have gne anywhere." The "real stars" f "Children Will Listen," then, are the teachers, says Gershn, wh adds that the educatinal aspect f the Bradway Junir cncept, which emplys special bk, CD and vide editins f classic musicals geared fr ages -, will be furthered next year with a nvel music license. "In January, McGraw -Hill will intrduce it as part f their required arts and humanities bks," he says. "We gave them -fr the first time in histry- the 'minidramatic license': This breaks frm traditin because schls have never had the right t d a piece f a musical in the classrm t give an intrductin t the theater. Mrever, instead f suing students fr dwnlading, we've decided t intrduce children frm first grade n t a lessn called 'the C in a Circle' -the symbl fr cpyright. "We're teaching a new generatin f children abut the intellectual prperty right-which is a very difficult cncept fr adults t understand. But when little Jhnny puts a `C' in a circle and the year and his name next t a drawing he made in class, and his mther puts it n the refrigeratr t shw t daddy and his brthers, he can say that means they can't make cpies f it, that he wns it. Hpefully, a new generatin f yung peple will get new respect fr dwnlading and cpying." Cunting,000 Bradway Junir prductins s far, Gershn expects that with McGraw -Hill's help, 0,000-0,000 grade schls acrss the United States will use Bradway Junir materials. "They'll get the idea that rights exist -and theater can be fun," he says, "and by the end f day we'll keep alive the art frm f a shw with music while making better citizens f a new generatin."

"Our initiative is [intended] t remind the cmmissin, the parliament and the cuncil that we prfessinals need a specific prgram that will take int accunt ur industries," Michel says. Nting that the EU music sectr "is an imprtant cntributr t ecnmic develpment, as well as t true cultural pluralism," the letter expresses regret that the EC has nt taken int cnsideratin "ur particu- lar scial and ecnmic specificities in its prpsals fr Culture 00." The signatries "urge" the EC, parliament and cuncil t revise the Culture 00 prpsal "t help musical creatin and its circulatin and t supprt prfessinal training in the industry." The EMO argues that there are still hindrances t the EU wrking as a single market - ntably legislative and scial issues that can affect crss -brder turing. The bdy suggests that several pilt prjects culd help address sme f these issues. An IFPI representative says the rganizatin is backing the EMO initiative because "IFPI has always been supprtive f pilt prjects t help artists tur and f the plans t establish a Eurpean Exprt Office in the United States."

38 GIVaI Measuring CKUA's 'Wrth Film, Bk Dcument Indie Canadian Radi Statin's Appeal BY LARRY LeBLANC TORONTO -Fr seven decades, independent cmmunity radi statin CKUA Edmntn, Alberta, has been a twering presence lcally and acrss Canada. It has prvided significant early expsure t such western Canadian artists as Jann Arden and k.d. lang, as well as t thse frm ther parts f the cuntry, including Bruce Cckburn, Natalie MacMaster and Clin Linden. CKUA's histry is the subject f a new ne -hur dcumentary by lcal filmmakers Lrna Thmas and Lisa Miller and f a 00 University f Alberta Press bk by Marylu Walters, bth titled "Radi Wrth Fighting Fr." The film, featuring interviews with Arden, Daniel Lanis, Harry Manx and Ricky Skaggs, airs Dec. in Canada n the Brav channel. Thmas was inspired t make the film after CKUA briefly shut dwn in 99. "One f my friends was s distraught," she recalls. "S I started lking int the histry f the statin." During a rally that year f 00 CKUA supprters, which appears in the dcumentary, Arden said, "If statins like this start disappearing, I'll start disappearing. What my music is all abut will disappear." Funded in 9, CKUA was Canada's first public bradcaster. It initially perated frm ne rm n the University f Alberta campus in Edmntn and was staffed by amateur radi enthusiasts. It is nw carried acrss Alberta n AM and FM via transmitters and attracts mre than 0,000 listeners weekly. It als bradcasts in western Canada n select satellite prviders and is simulcast n the Internet. While its headquarters are in Edmntn, the statin has a studi in Calgary. It perates with full-lime staffers, cntracted prducer/hsts and an annual perating budget f $. ARDEN:UKUA SUPPORTER millin Canadian ($. millin). With a limited cmmercial license, CKUA is financially supprted by listener dnatins (fr % f its budget), prgram advertising, subscriptins and crprate partnerships. CKUA's diverse prgramming includes blues, jazz, alternative rck and classical. "Over 0 CDs cme in weekly frm all ver the wrld," the statin's music directr Peter Nrth says. "Annuncers then select what they want t play. We play almst every musical genre." Hlger Petersen, hst f CKUA's "Natch'l Blues" prgram fr years and president f Stny Plain Recrds, says, "It's increasingly rare in radi that annuncers play music that they select" "CKUA is fantastic," says Trnt - based Bernie Finkelstein, president f True Nrth Recrds and manager f Cckburn. "The supprt they give us is enrmus. Jel Kreker's album 'Meldrama' reached N. there recently, and they've been there fr Blackie & the Rde Kings, as well as fr Bruce starting in the '0s." Ian Gilchrist, directr f sales and marketing fr Runder Recrds Grup Canada, says CKUA is the cuntry's nly utlet "that resembles a [U.S.- style] triple -A statin." Supprters tk t Edmntn's streets in 99 when the statin clsed fr five weeks. In 99, a private fundatin had taken ver the statin frm the prvincial gvernment-which had perated it since the '0s -in exchange fr $. millin Canadian ($ millin) in transitinal funding. Tw years later, the statin's bard chse t clse it t avid bankruptcy. Hwever, a grassrts mvement called SOS (Save Our Statin), spearheaded by the CKUA staff, tppled the bard and relaunched the statin. Mre than $ millin was raised in 0 days t keep the utlet alive. Thmas says, "The crisis was a new beginning in terms f listener supprt and passin fr the statin." Yvette Ray, radi prmtin representative fr Mint Recrds in Trnt, says, "CKUA is a gd example f what a cmmunity statin shuld be." CKUA GM Ken Regan agrees. "One f the statin's defining characteristics is that it listens t its audience. Our fcus is rted in the cmmunity." SLINE. THE INTERNATIONAL WEEK IN BRIEF Seven Japanese labels sent warning letters Nv. t Internet service prviders, demanding that they disclse the names f individuals wh have allegedly upladed unauthrized music files t the Internet. A statement frm the Recrding Industry Assn. f Japan identifies the seven labels as Victr Entertainment, Universal Music, Tshiba -EMI, Warner Music Japan, Avex and Sny Music Entertainment (Japan) divisins Sny Music Recrds and Defstar.

MIV EMAs Cntinued frm page Like they have fr each editin befre it, rganizers f this year's EMAs had ne mantra: bigger, better, blder. "We've always gt t try and build n what we did befre," said Hansen, wh has verseen each ceremny since the inaugural EMA event in 99 in Berlin. "We had a pretty gd balance f artists this year," he said. "There was a very gd crss -sectin f what wrks fr the Eurpean cntinent." The event has traditinally drawn criticism fr seeming t favr U.S. acts, particularly as perfrmers. Hwever, MTV Netwrks Internatinal senir VP f music Harriett Brand insisted, "Natinality is nly a factr in that we try t represent as much talent frm Eurpe as we can. "Artists that wrk acrss the cntinent have tended t be largely American," she added. "[But] there's always space in the shw fr hmegrwn talent." PURPOSE -BUILT Fllwing the psitive receptin f last year's frmat in Edinburgh, Sctland, rganizers again decided n a temprary tent structure fr the shw rather than using the existing facilities at Rme's Tr di Valle racecurse. RIAD Cntinued frm page recently," a RIM spkesman says. "It's a gd idea t remind cnsumers that they can als enjy music DVDs n these players." The "Kiite Miyu!" (Let's See What It Sunds Like!) music DVD blitz gt under way Nv.. Key aspects f the prmtin include in -stre psters and "There isn't a suitable venue f this size indrs in Rme," said the shw's executive prducer, Richard Gdfrey. "In terms f the temprary structure, it wrked very well as an experiment last year." T entice MTV t bring its party t Rme, the lcal gvernment met sme f the cst f cnstructing the,000- capacity venue. "A city like Rme is lking t attract mre yung peple," fliers at,00 music retailers natinwide and ad campaigns n the Web sites f Yah Japan (yah.c.jp) and the RIM (riaj.r.jp). Retailers are welcming the return f the campaign. Pete Chapman, prduct and marketing directr at HMV Japan, says his cmpany is giving ut RIAJ prmtinal material with every music DVD purchase. Chapman ntes that DVD is ne f the mst psitive aspects in what cntinue t be "difficult" trading cnditins. He says the frmat "perfrmed Hansen said. "They want mre vibrant yung peple t experience the place's histry and culture. By us being able t d a really great shw -and utilize the twn at the same time -[that] des the trick fr them." Alng with the awards ceremny, MTV staged a simultaneus free public cncert utside the Cliseum amphitheater, featuring Anastacia, the Cure, Hbastank and lcal extremely well fr us last year. And we are seeing strng like -fr -like increases again this year." Hwever, he adds, "as fr being the savir f the industry, we'll have t see." Reflecting the slid grwth in DVD and rising sales fr music and nnmusic titles, Japan Music Data and trade bdy the Japan Vide Sftware Assn. are creating a RIM- linked DVD database. Tky -based JMD is a jint venture between the RIM and Japan Distributin System, a Sny Music Entertainment (Japan) -affiliated music artists Carmen Cnsli and Elisa.

(Unauthrized Bigraphy f Rakim)" and "Bridging the Gap." He als aurally embraces his 9- year -ld daughter n "Me & Yu (Dedicated t Destiny)." Jining Nas n this excursin are prducers L.E.S., Salaam Remi, Chucky Thmpsn, Q -Tip and Buck - wild. Guests include Kelis, Amerie, Busta Rhymes, Ludacris, Dug E. Fresh, Maxwell, Nas' father, nted jazz musician Olu Dara, and Nas alter eg Scarlett. An MTV regular, Nas says balancing street credibility and cmmercial success exerts less pressure than what he puts n himself. "The pressure cmes frm me," he says. "After yu put ut a lt f wrk, yu have t challenge yurself t d smething new that feels gd r makes yu cry. That's what I want my music t d. I beat myself up abut that a lt. Hip -hp fans aren't the audience that was there when hip -hp was real in the '0s." "Nas bserves frm many different perspectives," says Lisa Ellis, GM f Sny Urban Music/Clumbia. "That's what defines him. Fr nce yu're getting a glimpse f his many parts." Acknwledging that it is harder t sell a duble -CD in tday's retail market wing t value and pricing, Ellis says the label began its marketing campaign earlier this summer. That kickff invlved tw street singles: "Thief's Theme" and "Yu Knw My Style." "Bridging the Gap" featuring Olu Dara is the set's first frmal single, with a vide directed by Diane Martel. It is N. 9 n the Ht R &B/Hip -Hp Singles & Tracks chart. The duble -CD set retails fr $9.9. "It was a mve we needed t make fr urselves even mre than fr ur fans," Nas says abut cllabrating with his dad n "Bridging the Gap." "It was ne hell f an experience and a milestne mve fr hip -hp tying tgether the father /sn relatinship, his musical backgrund and hw it relates t me." A majr cmpnent f the label's marketing campaign is the recrd's cver. Emplying a Last Supper mtif, it depicts Nas in different guises, all seated arund the same table. The cver figures prminently in the label's print, lifestyle and street prmtin. Prir t its release, the album has already garnered cverage frm utlets including Blender, Rlling Stne, The Surce, The Ave, XXL and Entertainment Weekly, amng thers. In keeping with his grassrts image, Nas is back perfrming; he recently wrapped a stpver at the Huse f Blues in Ls Angeles. Accrding t Ellis, Nas typically fllws an album release with a rad tur cvering the tp 0 markets. In the meantime, Nas is eyeing a return t acting-smething he hasn't dne since his debut in the 999 mvie "Belly." He's als cntemplating a fllw-up t the 000 gld -certified cmpilatin "QB Finest" as well as recrding ther artists n Ill Will. "I plan t be ccupying myself with a lt f different things 0 years frm nw," Nas says. "It's hard t maintain a career in hip -hp as an artist, but I still plan t be ding that."

41 _ JUST Infinity Edict Peeves Indies r Billbard ' D W. Street NE, Washingtn. D.C. 00 DECEMBER VIDE THE MOST- PLAYED CLIPS AS MONITORED BY NIELSEN BROADCAST DATA gistems New Ons" are thse clips with six r acre plays fr the first time in the chart week CMT 0 Cmmerce Street Nashville, TN 0 M N R (IV, TURVIIPHP Fr week ending NOVEMBER, 00 Bradway, New Yrk NY 00 Bradway. New Yrk, NY 00 Independent prmters are up in arms ver the news that New Yrk - based Infinity is severing all ties with them, Phyllis Stark reprts in Billbard Radi Mnitr. One cuntry indie says, "It's getting harder and harder fr the legitimate indies t participate in this business." The Infinity decisin fllws the same mve Clear Channel made in April f last year. And the timing appears t be smart, what with reprts f New Yrk Attr- ney General Elit Spitzer investigating recrd labels and radi fr pssible payla. Independent prmters and radi statins were served with subpenas as well, surces tld Billbard in early Nvember. f/' i Tuned In Radi. iinfnty Bradcasting Crpratin Meanwhile, surces within Infinity say the cmpany has capped its cmmercial lads at spts per hur in mrnings (and a ttal f "interruptins" per hur, including such items as paid weather spnsrships) and spts per hur ( ttal "interruptins") in ther dayparts. Hwever, a spkeswman says a cmpanywide sptlad plicy des nt exist acrss Infinity's radi statins. She cnfirmed that the cmpany has reduced sptlads n a case -by -case basis. On the sptlad issue, Infinity nce again is fllwing CC's lead. The San Antni -based bradcaster annunced earlier this year that it wuld play fewer cmmercials, fewer prms and d shrter spt breaks at all f its statins. WEB RADIO: Paul Heine reprts in Billbard Radi Mnitr that Evan Harrisn has left as VP /GM f AOL Music and the AOL Radi Netwrk, t spearhead a new Clear Channel Internet initiative. Harrisn sees CC's,00 radi statins as the "frnt dr" t a wider, deeper nline experience. Once users enter, they'll have access t statin -branded riginal cntent, music vides and a gateway t a large, diverse menu f ther Internet radi statins. Simulcasting radi signals n the Web nly scratches the surface f the cmpany's Internet plans, Harrisn says. CC intends t cast a wider net, catering t specific tastes with separate, Web -nly variatins f existing radi statins. By Marc Schiffman It als expects t ffer Web statins created by cre artists and nes based n subgenres f a frmat. And, like AOL and ther nline radi services, CC plans t "build a netwrk f statin experiences that are classified by genre." Harrisn ntes that each user "cmes in thrugh a different dr... Once yu get in, yu can [navigate] yur way arund this cmplete music wrld with fferings that span genres," as well as explre deeper niches in each genre. Fr example, Harrisn says, "Yu're cming in thrugh [tp 0 WHTZ New Yrk] and because yu're lyal t the Z00 brand and the type f music they play, first and fremst, that shuld be the experience when yu get there," he says. "But frm there, if yu chse, as a music fan, t cast a wider net, yu'll have that pprtunity." CLEARCHANNEL Harrisn says alternate, Web - nly variatins f statins like Z00 wuld still include the statin's persnalities in sme frm. He envisins persnalities at CC statins directing listeners t the statin's Web site t see an artist's acustic perfrmance, an interview sht in the statin's studi r a vide premiere- advertiserspnsred, f curse. "The nline experience will rund ut the ffering," Harrisn says. "By definitin, the nline experience will be ne where the cnsumer is in the driver's seat, and they'll be able t chse what they want t d and when they want t d it."

I at Mdern Rck as Jimmy's 'Pain' rises Eminem Up; U On Deck Numbers frm the first tw days f the tracking perid had chart watchers cautiusly predicting that Eminem's "Encre" wuld reap sales f 0,000-00,000.

That brings the rapper's tw -week ttal t almst. millin, just abut even with the tally that "The Eminem Shw" rang in a similar number f days.

Despite all the firewrks, album vlume is dwn frm the same 00 frame fr a 0th straight week. PRICE CHECK: In September f last year, when album sales shwed grwth fr the first time since 000, artists like Jhn Mayer, Mary J. Blige and DMX helped draw cnsumers back t stres. Thse gains ver weeks frm the prir year als cincided with the news that Universal Music & Vide Distributin wuld reduce pricing n mst f the frnt -line CDs frm Universal Music Grup -wned labels. Althugh retailers were initially cl t Universal's JumpStart prgram, the annuncement generated waves f attentin frm the cnsumer press. As verall album gains AZSt-lilL UNIVERSAL MUSIC S VIDEO DISTRIBUTION cntinued thrugh the first eight mnths f this year, cmpany executives frm chairman Dug Mrris n thrugh have mre than nce psited that cnsumers' perceptin f lwer prices influenced thse psitive cmps. There may be sme merit t that claim. Fr the first time in my years with the Billbard chart department, the suggested prices psted n The Billbard 00 shw a dwnward trend frm the prir year. On last issue's chart, CDs with a list (r equivalent price) f $.9 still represented the mst prminent tag amng thse 00 titles, but there were 99 at that level, dwn frm in the same week last year. The premium -level price f $9.99 is als less prevalent, with seven f thse n last issue's Billbard 00, cmpared with in the issue dated Nv. 9, 00. That's ntable, because in mst prir years, the dllar- higher premium tag wuld becme mre cmmn as labels cnstantly sught t creep tward a higher shelf price. liv lwer tiers have becme mre frequently emplyed. The Billbard 00 sprted 9 at $.9 and 0 at $.9 last week, cmpared with ne and, respectively, a year prir. The dwnward trend plays n Heatseekers, t, but is less bvius n Tp Pp Catalg (which appeared last week n billbard.cm as it alternates in the magazine with Tp Hliday Albums). Last issue's Heatseekers list had nly seven f 0 titles at $.9 r mre, while there were at that price weeks earlier. By cntrast, mre than half f the titles n last week's 0- psitin catalg list sat at $.9 r $.9, with at the frmer and 0 at the latter. That's abut even with last year's cmparable chart, when there were $.9 titles and a dzen at $.9. Beynd the JumpStart initiative, let's nt frget that music is the nly cnsumer categry where the mst in- demand items are always discunted. New albums by big -name acts have always been a music merchant's magnet, and never mre s than nw. Accrding t a reprt cmmissined by Pricewaterhuse- Cpers and presented at the Natinal Assn. f Recrding Merchandisers cnventin, half r mre f albums sld in the United States are rung by chains that tut the cheapest sale prices, primarily Wal -Mart, Best Buy, Circuit City and Target. Take a lk at circulars frm three f thse chains that hit hmes Sunday, Nv., affecting the tracking week reflected by this issue's charts. N less than current frnt -line albums were discunted t $9.9 -$.99, with six f thse simultaneusly featured in fliers frm Target and the tw electrnics chains. BILLBOARD DECEMBER, 00

50 I Charts Recent Tracks Mark Return Of Traditinal Cuntry Thrughut cuntry music's cmmercial histry, which dates back t the mid- 90s, the debate ver style has blmed perennially. A case study f that nging discussin practically leaps ff the Ht Cuntry Singles & Tracks chart this issue, as tw f the three fastest -rising titles n the list are traditinal cuntry ballads belnging t newcmer Gretchen Wilsn and reliably traditinal superstar Alan Jacksn. Invariably, the cuntry charts are dtted with an amalgam f styles, including the mre traditinal fare fund in Wilsn's piercing anthem f self -cntrl, "When I Think Abut Cheatin'," and the melismatic widwer's grief expressed in Jacksn's "Mnday Mrning Church" (with prminent backing vcals by traditinalist sngstress Patty Lveless). Owing much t her meteric rise t stardm this year and a bne - chilling perfrmance f the sng at the Nv. 9 Cuntry Music Assn. Awards, Wilsn's sng cllects Air - pwer stripes and rises - in its sixth chart week. Cncurrently, Jacksn's single (which als gained imprtant expsure n the CMA shw) hps - after eight weeks n the list. Alngside Keith Urban's six -week chart run with the prgressive cuntry rcker "Yu're My Better Half" (9 -), the tw ballads are the yungest titles t ppulate the tp 0, where the average chart stay this issue is mre than weeks. Hw is it pssible that these tw stylistic thrwbacks -ften characterized by mdern -day purists as an under -appreciated, underdg brand f cuntry-are nt nly playing alngside the frmat's mre prgressive sunds but als thriving and beating chart dds? The answer is fairly straightfrward if yu ask WSM -FM Nashville PD Jhn Sebastian. "It desn't matter t the cuntry listener whether a sng is pp r traditinal r rck- leaning. They respnd t great sngs," he says. While that may be true, many in the cuntry industry and a significant number f fans d plenty f hand - wringing ver the cntinued relevance f the style they lve. Sebastian adds, "We in the [business] get t wrapped up in veranalyzing whether a sng is t this' r t that,' and [we] ften frget t just listen t the sng and feel it like regular flks" d. Althugh the city Sebastian's statin serves is the cuntry music mecca, rank -and -file Nashvillians have a lng histry f leaning as readily t rck and R &B as t cuntry. Hwever, Sebastian ntes that Wilsn's steel- drenched ballad "is a bna fide, hme run smash accrding t my research," which sufficiently girds his cnfidence in WSM- FM being the leading statin in detectins during the tracking week, with plays. (The clsest frmat reprter played the track times.) In terms f audience penetratin fr Wilsn's sng, it is equally telling that a sphisticated, urbane market like Ls Angeles, which isn't typically knwn as a traditinal cuntry htbed, is the leader. KZLA finishes the tracking perid with. millin f Wilsn's.9 millin ttal impressins. (The nearest is KILT Hustn with,000 impressins.) Althugh the sanctity f cuntry's mst revered traditins will apprpriately (and predictably) be hashed and rehashed alng Music Rw and ut in the radi and audience hinterland, the vitality with which these tw examples f thse virtues are sprinting up the chart prtends that thse cherished traditins are just fine, thank yu. DEC ER 0 `RADIO' TUNES IN TO NO. : The three biggest gainers n Ht Cuntry Singles & Tracks are parked inside the tp five, including Gary Allan's chart -tpping "Nthing On but the Radi," which hps - with the third -largest increase (00).

51 Fuzzy Math Cntinued frm page the whlesale cst dwn t $.9 n initial rders, Target is still lsing $.0 n each unit sld, nt including whatever cperative advertising dllars it received frm Universal Music Enterprises. Target als was aggressive with a $9.9 price n the Bn Jvi bxed set, which carried the same bxlt cst and discunts as the Nirvana bx. With retail circulars shwing the ccasinal $.99 price fr hit titles during the last few mnths, music specialty merchants nnetheless were surprised t see Circuit City cme ut with an $.99 tag fr nine albums, including the new U set, "Hw t Dismantle an Atmic Bmb." But at press time, merchandisers were wrried abut what that wuld mean fr pricing n Black Friday - the day after Thanksgiving and the traditinal start f the hliday shpping seasn. Trans Wrld Entertainment had the U album priced at $.99 in its in -stre circular, but that was with a rebate, and nly abut % f custmers are said t actually redeem that discunt. Nevertheless, "I think the shit is ging t hit the fan n [Black] Friday," ne majr -label senir distributin executive says. "Between the big bxes, $.99 will likely be the nrm," but prices culd g even lwer. Last year n Black Friday, DVD players served as the main lss leader in DigtaI Cntinued frm page expected grwth f satellite radi and webcasting, which culd yield an annual figure clse t $0 millin by 00. SundExchange is the first perfrmance- rights rganizatin in the United States t cllect and distribute digital audi transmissin ryalties t artists and sund -recrding cpyright wners. The grup represents mre than 00 recrd cmpanies and thusands f recrding artists. Part f its gal, accrding t Simsn, is t seek ut indie labels and artists wh are wed ryalties fr sund recrdings played n satellite r cable TV music services r satellite radi services r streamed during nninteractive webcasts and t sign them up as members. SundExchange's member services include track -level accunting f perfrmances and cllectin and distributin f freign ryalties. The fall allcatin includes ryalties frm cable and satellite TV music services Muzak, Music Chice and DMX; satellite bradcasters XM and Sirius; and, fr the first time, ryalties frm webcasting and ephemeral licensing. It is als the first allcatin f ryalties frm Netherlands perfrmance - rights rganizatin SENA and frm SOMEXFON, the Mexican neighbring- mst hliday advertising, but music was als aggressively priced. Circuit City held a $9.99 sale fr every album in the stre, while Best Buy had five superstar titles at $.99 fr the first six hurs f business, with stres pening at a.m. This year, mst merchants say they expect t see $.99 in all circulars, with sme f the big bxes ging even further and hlding an all -day r partial -day sale at that price. But sme merchants fear that $.99 culd be prminently featured, t. Mst majr -label CDs carry a whlesale bxlt cst between $.0 and $.0. At Universal Music Grup, which has the JumpStart prgram, CDs whlesale fr $9.9 fr mst frnt -line titles and $0. fr superstar releases. But any way yu cut it, the circular prices represent lss -leadering. "It's bviusly ging t be a very cmpetitive Christmas seasn, yes, even mre than last year," says Bryan Everitt, directr f music purchasing at 0 -stre Hastings Entertainment in Amarill, Texas. "I'll never understand why the httest cmmdity in ur business is the cheapest," says Brian Yatzer, VP f merchandising at -unit, New Yrk - based Altitunes. "In any ther business it is the mst expensive." But Brett Wickard, president f the 0 -unit Bull Mse chain in Prtland, Maine, was excited by the pprtunity presented by Target's pricing n the Nirvana bxed set. "I am sending everyne n my staff int Target with credit cards," he says. rights sciety, fr the independent labels they represent.

The liability phase f the trial begins Nv. 9. If the labels succeed, they will prceed t the damages phase. If they fail, sme fear that Australia culd becme a haven fr PP distributrs. The actin widens the ptential net arund the tech cmpanies. Unlike pending cpyright -infringement cases brught in the United States against Sharman, the suit asserts additinal claims fr misrepresentatin t the public, uncnscinable cnduct and civil cnspiracy t inflict harm. Sharman has refused t reveal its wnership. Althugh it has ffices in Australia, Sharman was frmed in the island state f Vanuatu, a n -tax haven where the secrecy f private cmpanies is sacred, imprper disclsure f financial infrmatin t thers is subject t criminal prsecutin and tax infrmatin is nt shared with any utside jurisdictin. This makes the trial intriguing t bservers wh wnder what will be revealed in the evidence seized during the Feb. raids n the tech cmpanies, their key executives, universities and several Internet service prviders.

This may mean that the cmpanies can cntrl hw files are shared ver the PP netwrks- including thse shared by alleged cpyright infringers.

U.S. LITIGATION Sharman has been munting a vigrus fight against the entertainment industry in the United States. Sharman and LEF Interactive are als defendants in the U.S. District Curt suit brught by film studis, majr labels, sngwriters and publishers in Ls Angeles against Grkster and StreamCast Netwrks fr secndary cpyright infringement. In ne aspect f that case, Grkster and StreamCast were held nt liable by the Ninth Circuit Curt f Appeals fr the decentralized versins f their PP sftware. A petitin seeking review by the U.S. Supreme Curt is pending. Eminem's "Encre" sld,000 units fr the week, giving him the N. spt n The Billbard 00. "Destiny Fulfilled" frm Destiny's Child scanned 9,000 cpies t mve up t N., while N. title "Crunk Juice" by Lil Jn Si the East Side Byz mved,000 units. The Nv. release schedule included albums by U, Gwen Stefani and Ruben Studdard, the Nirvana bxed set, a Jessica Simpsn Christmas album and a hits set frm Creed. Dave Alder, executive VP at Virgin Entertainment Grup, wuld like t have seen mre spacing f key titles acrss the seasn. "The DVD [releases] will help ur cause; they are spread ut mre evenly." Overall, it's t early t predict hw the seasn will turn ut, but Alder says the midnight sales Virgin Megastres held fr the Nv. Super Tuesday releases "give us cause t be ptimistic." But ne majr -label distributin executive fears that the nly thing keeping 00 frm ending flat, r even dwn, is that this is a -week year. As fr Sharman, it initially challenged U.S. jurisdictin, claiming that it did nt cnduct business in the States. The District Curt rejected the argument, hlding in January 00 that Sharman's distributin f its sftware t U.S. residents, amng ther activity, required the cmpany t defend itself in the United States. In respnse, Sharman filed a cuntersuit against the entertainment cmpanies, alleging varius antitrust vilatins fr refusing t license their wrks t Sharman's partner Altnet -a cmpany claiming t sell licensed entertainment thrugh the Kazaa netwrk. Thse claims were thrwn ut by the curt in July 00; the curt held that Altnet -nt Sharman -was refused the licenses and that Altnet wasn't a party t the suit. Subsequently, the curt permitted Sharman t include claims that the entertainment cmpanies infringed Sharman's cpyrights and vilated ther rights by using Kazaa sftware t transmit and dwnlad spfed r crrupted files. Since that case is still pending, any evidence in the Australian trial establishing Kazaa as a centralized PP netwrk culd affect Sharman's liability in the U.S. federal curt. Sharman Netwrks cntends that Kazaa is a legitimate technlgy used legally. An article by Sharman's Hemming claims that "hundreds f artists... independent recrd labels and mvie studis, as well as sftware and game develpers, are using Kazaa t distribute their prducts fr sale t millins f users wrldwide" even thugh the "vast majrity f majr labels and studis still wn't adapt."

Fr Zamra's SGZ, which is cncentrating n urban trpical acts, radi prmtin is essential and eats mst f the marketing budget. He ntes that the trpical market is relatively small and easier t wrk than pp and reginal Mexican. In fact, the self- titled single ff SGZ's first release, Tit Nieves' "Fab - ricand Fantasias," hit N. n the Billbard Latin Trpical /Salsa Airplay chart in the Aug. issue, driving healthy sales f the album.

In fact, the FCC put satcasters n ntice in 99 that it "may adpt additinal public- interest requirements at a later date." Levine -the wner f KUSR -AM Beverly Hills, Calif.; KTIM -AM Piedmnt, Calif.; and classical KMZT Ls Angeles -als cntends that satellite radi is subject t Title f the U.S. Cde, Sectin, which prhibits bradcasting indecent material between the hurs f a.m. and 0 p.m. Blstering his case is the fact that sme spectrum that satellite peratrs use was granted withut an auctin, placing it in the prvince f the public airwaves. Since that slice f spectrum was laned, nt bught, it belngs t the peple and, the argument ges, the FCC can attach indecency regulatins t it. Andrew Schwartzman f the Media Access Prject agrees that the FCC has the authrity t apply the indecency statute t satellite. But, he adds, "t d it, they wuld have t change their wn current rules, and I'm nt s sure they wuld d it n their wn, withut pressure frm Cngress. "The Cmmunicatins Act defines subscriptin service bradcasting differently than bradcasting," Schwartzman says. "The FCC has the pwer t change that. But als... wuld it hld up in curt is anther matter."

While we deeply regret the incident invlving Janet Jacksn, we believe that a gvernment fine fr an unintentinal bradcast is unfair and unwarranted, and we are challenging that decisin. This cnsent decree allws us t mve frward and t fcus ur effrts in this area by serving ur viewers and listeners with techniques t safeguard live bradcasts, such as cutaways and vide and aldi delays:' CONSENT DECREE PRECEDENTS As it did earlier this year with Clear Channel and Emmis, the FCC's latest cnsent decree invlves a series f requirements fr Viacm. The cmpany must purchase and install delaysystems and edit "ptentially prb_ematic live prgramming" n it TV statins and n the CBS and UFN netwrks. It als must adpt similar safeguards at Infinity's radi statins. Viacm als agrees t cnduct indecency -t aining sessins fr its air talent and emplyees wh "materially enugh plitical impetus at this pint t exercise that authrity," Crigler says. Were the FCC t, at the behest f Cngress, extend indecency enfrcement t satellite, it may be incnsistent with the Cnstitutin. "It's the First Amendment that is the mre severe limitatin n what the FCC can d," Crigler says. WE THE PEOPLE Squaring indecency restrictins n subscriptin radi with the First Amendment culd be difficult. When the Supreme Curt upheld the FCC's pwer t regulate indecency in the landmark Pacifica case f the 90s, it cited the "pervasive" nature f free, ver -the -air bradcasting t justify its ruling. But the "pervasiveness" argument breaks dwn when talking abut satellite radi, a Senate staffer familiar with the issue says. "Satellite radi is a paid service," the staffer says. "Yu elect t have it, yu elect t buy it and yu elect t turn it n. It's smething that yu chse." Rn Rdrigues, senir directr f public relatins fr Sirius Satellite Radi, says the cmpany's subscriptin -based service has "a built -in safeguard against peple wh wuld therwise be accidentally tuning [in] indecent prgramming." Rdrigues adds that it is reasnable t assume that peple wh subscribe knw that Sirius ffers uncensred prgramming, since the prduct is participate in prgramming decisins." Ging frward, if a Viacm - wned statin receives an indecency NAL, the cmpany agrees t suspend and put int remedial training the emplyees respnsible fr the material in questin and cnduct an internal investigatin. When the air talent returns, his r her shw wuld be subject t n -air delay. Shuld the NAL lead t a frfeiture rder, the emplyees invlved wuld face further disciplinary actin, up t and including terminatin. These cnditins aren't as stringent as thse placed n Clear Channel r Emmis, which FCC Cmmissiner Kevin Martin nted in his cncurring statement. "This cnsent decree des nt have all f these prtectins," Martin said, referring t the CC and Emmis decrees, which were identical t each ther. "I am cncerned that this cnsent decree is significantly different and may be less f a deterrent fr future vilatins. Mrever, by requiring less f Viacm than we have required f thers, we may be treating thse ther cmpanies unfairly." PAUL HEINE marketed that way. The safeguard invlves a parental blcking feature. On lder Sirius radis, subscribers can enrll in the "family pack," which blcks mre risqué channels, such as Raw Dg and sme hip -hp utlets. On newer Sirius radis, passwrd- enabled subscribers can blck individual channels. Rdrigues ntes that listeners need a credit card t subscribe and that the majrity f credit card hlders are lder than. `INCREASING TENSION' Speaking at the Natinal Assn. f Bradcasters Radi Shw in Octber, FCC Cmmissiner Kevin Martin said there is "increasing tensin" ver different decency standards fr bradcasters and paid subscriptin services transmitted thrugh cable and satellite. The Republican cmmissiner said it is a subject the FCC "will have t face -whether r nt there shuld be changes made t level the playing field." Demcratic FCC Cmmissiner Jnathan Adelstein says, "The curts have held that there's a different standard fr subscriptin services, s it's difficult fr us t argue that we wuld have the authrity t g after subscriptin services. "I knw that this might nt seem fair frm the perspective f ver -the -air bradcasters r frm the perspective f peple that dn't necessarily distinguish between the tw. But we have t be careful nt verstep the bunds f ur authrity, r we risk having what limited authrity we have slapped dwn by the curts." A leading authrity n the subject, wh wrte the recent Viacm reply brief in the indecency frfeiture case ver the Janet Jacksn incident at the Super Bwl, agrees it wuld be difficult fr the FCC t act n indecency in the satellite realm. "The FCC desn't have the authrity t write uncnstitutinal rules," First Amendment attrney and frmer FCC cunsel Bb Crn- Revere says. Crn -Revere says federal lawmakers culd push fr a change in the upcming 09th Cngress. He pints t Sen. Jhn B. Breaux, D -La., wh intrduced an amendment t an indecency bill in March that wuld make satellite and cable subject t the same FCC fines as bradcast statins. That amendment was defeated in cmmittee - and never made it int the bill. The issue, he says, "is very bipartisan. Even at the cmmissin -wh has been pushing hard fr bigger fines? The Demcrats." WILL CONGRESS ACT? Crigler says the debate is likely t "languish unless a plitical impetus gathers arund it... This is the kind f thing that smetimes peple pile n t and, if it gains that kind f impetus, the cmmissin wuld prbably take it mre seriusly. My hunch is that it will take sme push, nt just frm the bradcast industry r individual licensees, but a push frm Cngress." Just because Republicans cntrl Cngress and the White Huse des nt mean the gvernment is anxius t venture int this First Amendment minefield. Artist grups and unins successfully blcked the Bradcast Decency Enfrcement Act, S. 0, frm cming t the Senate flr as a "unanimus cnsent" bill during the Nv. lame -duck sessin in the Huse f Representatives. Several members f the Huse were cnvinced t keep a "hld" in place n the bill (see stry, page ). "The Huse and the Senate feel strngly that the FCC shuld be given mre authrity in hw it exercises its discretin," Crigler says.

54 'The Revenue That Cmes Frm Shiny Things That Spin Is Risky' BY MICHAEL PAOLETTA Larry Miller and Michael Caplan, c- funders f New Yrk -based independent recrd label Or Music, have plenty t celebrate. Next year, the label, which als has a publishing divisin (Or Music Publishing), will mark its third birthday, and it has already brken its first act in a big way. In 00, Or Music released the self -titled debut album by then - reginally knwn Texas guitar rck tri Ls Lnely Bys. Like ther Or releases, it was handled by Sny's RED Distributin. As buzz n Ls Lnely Bys was building, Or partnered n the prject with Epic/Sny, which rereleased the album earlier this year. The Or/Epic disc peaked at N. 9 n The Billbard 00 in the July issue and has sld. millin units, accrding t Nielsen SundScan. In July, Or Music partnered with EMI Music Publishing fr wrldwide administratin f Ls Lnely Bys. Or has released albums frm acts that include Jhn Cale and Twer f Pwer, as well as the benefit cmpilatin "Pr Vida: A Tribute t the Sngs f Alejandr Escved." Next year, Or will issue the debut fulllengths frm Pitty Sing and British utfit Pure Reasn Revlutin. Variety has been the spice f CEO Miller's career. Starting as a DJ (listen t that vice!), he mved t radi sales and marketing, then became a pineering Internet executive with AT &T and Reciprcal. Miller and Caplan a frmer senir VP f A &R at Epic wh serves as Or's president -are attempting t ffer artists the best f bth wrlds: the distributin muscle f a majr and the creative freedm f an independent. "It is a mdel that wrks fr Michael and Larry," RED Distributin senir VP f prduct develpment Alan Becker says. Nw, he adds, thers are trying "t cpy this frmula they have created." Billbard talked with Miller abut what Or has accmplished and its future prspects. Q. Yu launched Or Music in a pst -Sept., 00, wrld, when music ventures were finding it difficult t get financial supprt. In fact, yu culdn't have picked a mre difficult time t start a label. Hw were yu able t secure funding? A. The nly wrse prperty I culd have been shpping fr funding at the time wuld have been an Internet music business. I remember walking int ne investr's ffice. Halfway thrugh the pitch, he lked frm the PwerPint up t me and said, "Oh, this is just a recrd cmpany and a music publishing business, right? It's nt Internet anything, right?" He understd that we weren't abut fundamentally changing the way peple acquire, cnsume r discver music. And given sme f the things I've been invlved with ver the last 0 years, it was a fair questin t ask. Q. Nw that yu have linked with Sny, has it invested in Or? A. N. We capitalized this cmpany with private -equity investrs wh are utside the music business. These are institutinal investrs wh are lking at a return eventually and wh als thught it might be fun t be invlved in the music business. Q. What is Epic /Sny's invlvement with Ls Lnely Bys? Des the majr handle distributin, marketing and prmtin? A. It's all f the abve, and it is fr this artist nly. The deal includes all Ls Lnely Bys albums up thrugh the end f the riginal Ls Lnely Bys/Or Music agreement, which is ne plus fur albums. Q. Is there mre t the relatinship with Sny? A: Fr the length f ur new distributin agreement, which ges thrugh 00, Sny and we can decide t upstream prjects and put them in this jint -venture bx. Thse releases that get entered int this jint - venture bx are then distributed by Sny Music.

D yu see this kind f upstreaming as a way fr independent labels t survive and mve frward? A. There is a perceptin amng sme peple at majrs -wh are smewhat insulated frm life at small labels -that "independent" is anther wrd fr "just hasn't gne ut f business yet." And I beg t differ. Fr the smaller independent wh may be lk- ing t use upstreaming as a way t stay in business r share sme f the risk f staying in the new -artist develpment business, it is abslutely smething t cnsider. Q. D yu see labels like Or acting as A&R surces fr majrs? A: The new, mre cnslidated majr -label business that nw exists reminds me f the mvie business. When cmpared t the music industry, Hllywd has, in recent years, been ding deals like this mre publicly and with mre fanfare. I see Or Music as mre f a Miramax r New Line than a Disney r Time Warner. In the music industry, there is almst a pejrative cnntatin t being an A&R surce fr a majr. But in the mvie business, it's called being Miramax r New Line. I wuld be delighted t becme the Miramax r New Line f the recrd business while als expanding beynd ur cre recrd business int ther related businesses that may include merchandising r management. [That] said, we're fcused n publishing as the next thing. Q. Where des the Internet fit int this landscape? A. In due curse, there will be mre channels and devices fr discvering and cnsuming music than ever befre. What we dn't have yet are mre ways f mnetizing all f that music. Ultimately, it's abut a cnsumer falling in lve with a piece f music that fundamentally changes the way he r she feels. As Michael is fnd f saying, "If peple wake up ne mrning and decide they want t get music thrugh their refrigeratrs, we'll be there, t." Q. On the eve f 00, what d the wrds "independent label" mean? A. Independent is typically preceded by the wrd "fiercely." Ging int 00, I'm nt sure what "fiercely independent" means. Des it mean that ne is fiercely cmmitted t passinately finding and releasing music in ne genre? Des it mean ne is fiercely cmmitted t railing against the majrs because "majr bad/indie gd "? These rules dn't apply anymre. Sme peple are trying t reinvent the business wheel by ding five -page cntracts r 0/0 artist ryalty splits. Our cntracts are typically pages lng. They are multi -album -and I dn't mean ne plus ne. They are typically nt licenses. They are traditinal deals. We want t build a substantial, rbust, prfitable cmpany. The revenue stream that cmes t a cmpany frm selling shiny things that spin is risky. The revenue that accrues t a cmpany frm the publishing side f the business, nce a recrd is n its way, is far less risky. Over time, music publishing assets behave like real estate, which is why music publishers have been able t apply lts f different financing strategies tward grwing and expliting their catalgs. Q. D yu have an exit strategy planned fr Or -like selling t Sny, perhaps -in a year r tw? A. I am having mre fun than I've ever had in my life. And I knw Michael wuld say the same thing. The freedm and passin we have here is great. We have n plans t sell the cmpany. Of curse, if Sny r smene else were t cme alng and make us an ffer we culdn't refuse, we wuld have t cnsider it like any businesspersn wuld. Q. What is yur advice t smene pening an indie label tday? A: Think lng and hard abut the benefits and risks f being in the business and d nt undercapitalize the cmpany. The fact is, cmmitment and capitalizatin shuld g withut saying. The single greatest attribute just as imprtant as cmmitment and maybe mre imprtant than capitalizatin -is passin. Passin fr the music and the artists and passin fr this business.
