Some Cheese and Crackers with your Whine?

I notice lots of whining about iTunes withholding on the Album Only thing. What's the big deal? The Album Only price seems to apply to lengthy pieces, why should they give them away at $0.99. Suggestion to iTunes: Maybe sell the longer pieces for 1.98 or 2.97, or some such pro-rated method.

Hold the cheese and crackers please

What if that one long piece is the only track you want to buy, you are stuck buying the rest of the tracks that you are not interested in. They could, and sometimes do, offer longer tracks for a higher price. They should also drop the price on tracks that are less than a minute long.

Wonderful Minimalist

If you are a Terry Riley fan, or someone who likes minimalist music this is terrific. I use it it work or drive with and it takes me to a great place. Enjoy.
