Computers use an online database to display CD information, the most common one is known as Gracenote, a more detailed article on Gracenote can be found here Gracenote CD Database and CD-TEXT.
Tunes and Windows Media Player DO NOT read and CD-Text embedded on the actual CD, at all! This is common for all computer CD player software.
When the CD information is displayed on a computer, the info is coming from an online database. The database is usually Gracenote (the more common) or AllMusic.
The Gracenote database serves CD information to: iTunes, WinAmp, Quintessential Media Player, and Finder (Mac OS). The AllMusic database serves CD information to: Windows Media Player, Rhapsody, and Real Music Player.
Registration on these databases must be completed by you, the client, rather than us as no extra information is added to the CD for them to work.
You can find further information on how to submit your CD on the below links.

In the covid world, with less opportunities for live music income, artists are looking for new opportunities to earn money.
Here’s an idea that will make you money.
Go back to all of your albums and release special versions only available on cd ….. the key here is not to upload this to
Spotify. You then give your fans a reason to buy your album!
Ideas to make it exclusive include:
For the Audio:
1.New tracks not on the original album
2.Remixes previously unreleased
6. Lockdown Sessions
- You can also make the album art unique and desirable in itself.
- Many albums of course have the lyrics but what about explaining to your fans the background to how / why it was written
- Anything that makes it interesting…. that you can’t get on Spotify for free!
- Hope this helps to make you money let us know your success stories .
To help you even more add FREE4 in the special code box as you check out and we will give you 4 extra units free of charge.

I was struck by the title of a CD that we duplicated for a customer this week:
“Without Venues We’re Nothing”… although we are living in a digital age of downloads and streaming nothing will ever beat a live musical performance whether it be a local gig or West End Musical.
We all look forward to happier times when we will all be able to enjoy these again.

We recently duplicated a wonderful DVD called Isle of Wight Railways in Colour.
Full of nostalgia and very interesting to watch.
We are so pleased to be able to duplicate small runs for groups who have specialised interests to share and document on DVD.
