Great Albums on Sale



Denise thanks for your offer, Which brings raises this point: If you can buy and gift to someone outside of the US , why have these artificial barriers? I know it’s the Music biz that is putting these restrictions in place… but why??

I find it most depressing when I go online to iTMS and find all the albums I want for $9.99± are not available in Canada. Im stuck with either having to wait or go and bite the bullet at HMV and buy them there for double the price (ie. Pink Floyd albums). For the last year I have been solely buying music from iTunes on Tuesay when they are released. This will be “Great” when they move the promotion outside of America! I took at look at what they are offering and am liking what im seeing.


From Germany it isn’t available, too. But that’s the same with all of these cool special offers and freebies. :(


So i went to buy one of the albums from the sixties, The Band’s “Music From Big Pink” (the members of The Band consisted of 4 canadians and an american.) I really wanted to get the album. So off i go…BUT because I’m in canada it won’t let me buy from the American Store…so off it goes to the Canadian Store….. but that Album is NOT available from the Canadian Store. Other albums by The Band are available but no listing for Music From Big Pink. Go figure. What insanity! …. and so it goes…
