The article reports that one year after Hurricane Katrina, the greater New Orleans market in Louisiana actually enjoys a 25.8 percent increase in album sales in the first eight-and-a-half months of 2006. Sales within the city of New Orleans itself are down, but the outflow of inner-city evacuees and influx of insurance payments, Federal Emergency Management Agency payouts and other charitable dollars appears to be fueling sales in stores that carry music in the surrounding suburbs and rural areas.
