Alliance Entertainment Corp.'s music database All Music Guide (AMG) plans to launch a branded series of compilations on enhanced CDs this fall, Billboard Bulletin reports. Titles in "The All Music Guide CD Series" will be enhanced with AMG content, including photo galleries, artist biographies, and album listings, as well as trivia sweepstakes and other exclusive content. The enhanced features can be accessed by placing the albums in a CD-ROM drive.

Each compilation will be dedicated to a different genre; the first slate of eight will feature soul, R&B, country, early rap, early rock, classic rock, jazz soloists, and American jazz singers.

AMG is producing the series in conjunction with Medalist Entertainment, a label specializing in theme-based albums and other special music products sold on television and at retail stores.

AMG intends to release eight to 12 new CDs each quarter. Alliance chief executive Eric Weisman says the CDs will be priced as mid-price albums. The titles will be carried by select retailers.
