Over the weekend, prior to the announcement Wednesday of Google Music, Google was still reportedly scrambling to secure content and licensing deals from the four major record labels. According to top music industry and radio website allaccess.com, only EMI and Vivendi Universal were all in prior to the announcement yesterday.
According to Allaccess and other music industry (not tech) websites, Sony Music was still not on board as late as Tuesday morning. Finally in the 11th hour Google and Sony were able to strike a deal that gave Google Music users access to Sony and their associated labels including Jive, RCA, Arista, J and many more.
