What it says on the metal container!

BTW: At any one time, John has only had a maximum of two albums available through iTunes (the other iTunes-current album being CO III).

Can anyone shed any light on why John does this?

Is it shrewd 'restricted product' marketing. Or is it simply the case that iTunes costs too much to put more than two albums of content on at once?

Or maybe avoiding anything that involves turning on a computer?... wink

The albums are easy to enough to buy in real time!

John's an artist too of course.
You NEED to have cover art and sleeve notes. Its part of the package
John's albums are conceived as 'albums'. Gestalt and all that. iTunes takes away the whole concept of a piece of work being more than a few tracks in random order.

Theories are like possibilities: anything is possible. Manned spaceflight is possible.

I was just curious if anybody had any solid info.

But I welcome conjecture...

...and viable, generous financial donations too.
