A high Dollar Age like this suggests stability and longevity.

What’s interesting is in the last 12 months alone, earnings from “Chill Bill” grew over 12%. A catalog containing mature works with consistent (and even growing earnings) is worth noting. This may sustain a catalog's earnings moving forward.
