Record companies are in the business of pressing vinyl for people that listen to music with a turntable. Analog.

I've found that this depends on the label. For example I purchased Daft Punk's Random Access Memories LP and they included a digital download of the album. Also on the bandcamp website lots of artists there have music available for download per track. sometimes you can name your price.
As for buying downloads per track don't a lot of record companies offer that through Itunes or Amazon MP3 etc? Do you want to go the Interscope website and download music from there?
Sorry for all the questions but I'm confused by your post.
Jedinite24, depends on the label is half my point. I look for music I want to sample and buy and half of what I find I can't sample.
"Lots" just doesn't cut it. If it's recorded, it should be available to sample and purchase on the spot. I'm not a fan of Apple stuff so admittedly I haven't done any checking on what that site offers. But, why should there be another go-between service instead of being able to get it from the source?
For me the service that Amazon offers by way of sampling is a great way to go. My whole point is if the source companies(my bad for using record companies) stepped up and did this, and offered their whole listing this way, we'd all be winners it seems.
