Bollocks! I still want a quality digital version of the Ya House mix.

Re: Apple + Underworld
this is confusing because IIRC, even though hardly anything is available now, used to be recently that all the albums already were up there, with even a few singles to boot.

i'm gonna stick with "FULL back catalog" optimism

i admire your optimism. i dont think full back catalogue should mean albums only. it should mean singles too. at least all regular releases. thats false advertising...

Re: Apple + Underworld
This seems like a great opportunity to sell all those rare tracks that are so hard to find, at least on CD. Not to mention the Live Here Now recordings for those who were unable to collect them all. I don't see why UW would not avail themselves of iTunes' full potential, seems like it'd be printing money for them.

Well, Apple do take a share of the profits, and there are maybe rights issues here. I'm not sure who else would be taking a share, be that JBO or V2 or whatever. Selling on Underworldlive.com is a better option of course for money going directly to the artist but whatever, I'm am sure that its not as simple as it seems.

Re: Apple + Underworld
I say fuck apple/itunes

digital quality sucks
download performance sucks
itunes is a piece of crap
itunes store is poorly designed

amazon blows them away on all accounts

I can download a 60 minute 320kbps Mp3 album from amazon in 3 minutes

same album from itunes takes 20 min (gets hung up on processing after download is completed) and its only 256kbps and in a non ubiquitous format !

Ha! I, too, have bad vibes for Apple, because although they make a decent product and have the market cornered, are just a little too snobbish about it for my tastes. But anyway, i don't DL mp3s much, but when i do, i'll take what i can get. It's still very disposable in my mind. So if Amazon or iTunes or UWlive is the route to get the tune, great. Fine to hear, but i still like something more permanent. CDs maybe a dying breed, but are those rare early 90's EPs and singles really gonna get re-released in whatever the next format is (if there is something new and physical?).
Sorry, rant over. Bring on the goods via iTunes!

Re: Apple + Underworld
I'm skeptical a new physical format is coming... though I could (eventually) see things like "complete discography" Blue Ray discs or something... in lossless format or whatever... but I do think we who appreciate a physical thing are the dying breed here.

However, many things will still be pressed on vinyl for the imminent future, I think, since it's almost entirely a niche market already... so, yay for that! [smirk]
