iTunes 6.0 Sucks (continued)
Thanks everyone for all the suggestions (including Jackson who not surprisingly suggests going back to vinyl).
I have done two things
1 - set up an account on emusic. I bought the Great Lake Swimmers record from them already. And get this. I paid $191 for the ability to download 90 songs a month (1080 songs per year). That's $0.18 per song or roughly $2 per record. If I can find most of the music I want to buy on emusic (and I don't yet know that I can) this is going to be the place I buy music from now on.
2 - set up an account on allofmp3.com. I gave them $10 via paypal and so far I've bought 5 songs for a total of $0.19. Roughly 4 cents per track.
All of this musis is DRM free. I am going to add another New Year's Resolution:
11 - Stop buying music from iTunes.
Thanks everyone who helped me make this one a reality.
UPDATE: Apparently allofmp3.com is not legit. So I am going to stop using them. They got me for $10. That sucks but stealing music is worse. I don't and won't do that.
