Where to buy high-resolution digital music?

I have been looking for a place to buy digital music which will be either uncompressed (lossless compression is fine) or compressed at very hign bit rate (256KBps WMA minimum). Let me know if you know one. I honestly don't understand why I should be paying 99 cents per track at 128KB when I can buy a CD. Say, Me & Mr. Johnson by Eric Clapton is $13.49 with free shipping at Amazon. It consists of 14 tracks which I will be then able to rip at at very high rate or even uncompressed.
