“Great Albums” Sale at the iTunes Store


Want to make your (legal) digital music collection a bit more classic? Need to fill some holes in your holdings? Head over to the iTunes Store (warning: this link may launch the program), where there’s a sale going on with lots of “great albums” on sale, some priced as low as $5.99. Among the (near) canonic items I noticed there were Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited, Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue, Sly and the Family Stone’s There’s a Riot Going On, Anita Baker’s Rapture, Frank Sinatra’s Songs for Swinging Lovers, the Jesus and Mary Chain’s Psychocandy and Massive Attack’s Blue Lines. I won’t be buying those (since I already have them), but there are many items I’m giving a long look. You might as well have a look, too. (By the way, even though these are surely matters of taste, I do wonder whether the selectors tossed in Arrested Development’s 3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life of… as a joke. I’ve tried for over a decade to understand how that could even be considered a good album, and I keep coming up short…)
