LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

S erious music collectors draw much of their collections from used CD stores, something that -- until recently -- has been missing from the Internet.

Summer Session '99 is delivering its solution to what's become an overdose of buy-one-get-too-many commercialized music festivals.

These days hip-hop compilations seem to outnumber, and outperform, full-length albums.

Plus, profiles of Kevin Welch and Salvador Cardenal, reviews of albums from Freedy Johnston and Sam Rivers, and more.
