Albany - - It's a growing sign of the times -  music on the Internet. So will local cd stores pay the price?

Big name artists like Prince and Pearl Jam have tapped into the online market to grab music fans.

Now, many up and coming artists see it as a way to grow their fan base without the help of a record label. But managers at The Exchange in Albany say there will always be a market for cd's.  

"Even with all the downloading people do for albums, they still want the artwork, they still want something they can hold in their hand and browse through when they're listening to it," says James Vanzant of The Exchange.

Vanzant doesn't expect to see artists totally resort to the Internet to pitch their music. He says cd sales are still good.
