"Rolling Stone lends its name to CD compilations"

Rolling Stone magazine has ventured into the exclusives debate by partnering with Somerset Entertainment and allowing its brand name to be used in connection with a series of music compilations sold exclusively at Best Buy beginning in December.

Titles range from "The Pioneers of Rock & Roll" and "80s Metal Rock" to "The Psychedelic Sounds of the 60s" and "90s R&B."

Each title comes with an offer for 12 free issues and a vintage Rolling Stone cover collage within the liner notes. Somerset, a specialty label involved in putting together premium music CDs, created the compilations after consulting with the magazine's editors.
