The pefect solution to this is can be found at Woven Wheat Whispers which is a label for folk download albums where the artist has complete control over their material.
For example, I have a number of 'freebies' up there and can charge as much as I like for the other stuff. That I charge a mere £3.75 an album is becase of a) my relative obscurity & b) the somewhat esoteric nature of much of the stuff I do. Besides which, £3.75 is the price sticker that still clings to my original vinyl copy of Man's 'Back Into the Future' as it has done since it came out in 1973 - a fair price for non-corporeal copy.
There's all manner of goodies over at WWW - Jez Lowe included - so pay a visit & have a root around, and should you be curious as to what Eleanor's Visceral Tomb sounds like, then check the "Lady, Hap Yer Lingcan" EP which is entirley gratis (as seems reasonable for a 17 minute improvisation on the ballad of King Henry (Child #32) bookended by 'catering ambience' field-recorded in the Chapter House of York Minster...).
All this and John Barleycorn Reborn too - what more can you ask for?
