Agreed. Kicking myself for missing that Otis Redding deluxe edition. I will help update as well. Great thread.

I just sent one of the music forum mods a PM so we'll see if they can.

FWIW, I'm a hardcore Apple fan (Mac user since 1999, iPods, etc) but I think Amazon MP3 blows iTunes away for price, lack of DRM, and having seemingly just as good of a selection. I rarely buy from iTunes now.

Itunes also has discount deals on albums too. I'm looking at it now. Lot of albums less than $7 or $9 listed in one section. A few of them are DRM-free.

There's the problem though. ALL of Amazon's mp3s are DRM-free, so they get all of my download business on principle.

Plus $7.99 is about as low as iTunes ever goes unless the album has less than 8 songs. $7.99-8.99 is about average for Amazon, and all the albums posted in this thread are either cheaper than that or have more than 20 songs.

out of curiosity, I am a chart geek so I am interested in knowing, does Soundscan count Amazon mp3 sales? Since it seems like iTunes is the only digital chart they ever count.

Even for those iTunes songs that are DRM free, they're still in AAC format which my car's MP3 CD player can't read so I prefer MP3 even if the compression isn't quite as good.

Absolutely the best deal I've seen so far. Good thing I have the Complete Zep boxset otherwise I'd be so in.
