Starting today (Nov. 20), you can buy the entire AC/DC on iTunes for $150.
Without jokes about AC/DC having 300 songs that are all the same, what are some of the remaining absences from the digital realm.
I'd really like to have:
Tim Curry-"I Do the Rock!"
"Repo Man" Soundtrack

Can't you get their entire album collection on cd for less than $150? People on i-tunes are saying that this is a great deal, but for crying out loud! How can you justify paying $150 for something you can have an actual physical copy of and upload any time you want? I don't get it. Sorry to go off on a side street Emery, but anyone who is a fan of the band (I have six of their albums) would already have these songs.

But to get with the question in your original post, King Crimson is not on i-tunes, another band most people would probably not care about.

Tool, I hope. As far as I know they haven't gone the digital road yet. Correct me if I'm wrong, cuz in this case I would like to be wrong ;).

Am I missing something here? Why can't most folks with a computer rip mp3s? Turning vinyl into digital is more difficult, but not so bad. Second hand CDs can be ripped for less than than "new" mp3 purchases, if you are prepared to wait for the mailperson.

Does the question refer to our favs digital downloads availability on iTunes, Amazon, etc?

I tend to like six songs per album, tops (a *lot* fewer with Bon Scott-era albums like Powerage or Let There Be Rock), so getting all the albums on CD is still not as good a deal, especially considering how crap AC/DC's album artwork and packaging tend to be.

So upload the songs you like. It's still cheaper than buying the albums on iTunes and probably still cheaper than downloading six songs from each album!

Downloads used to be cheaper than CDs, but so much anymore. I used to buy downloads of artists that I liked and didn't care about the artwork because $9.99 was cheaper than $13, $14 or $15 that CDs used to cost. Not so much anymore. Just the other day I ordered a Rush "Permanent Waves", Black Sabbath "Paranoid" and Lynyrd Skynyrd "Second Helping" for $3.99 each. I have these albums on vimyl and I have converted most of my LPs to digital but I didn't have these three CDs. I almost bought the Paranoid deluxe edition a couple years ago but I couldn't pass up $3.99 for the CD. With all the talk of CDs going away I have been gobbling up bargains. I think soon you will only be able to get these CDs as a part of box sets such as the "Original Classic Album" series. With the cost advantage of downloads gone, the only advantage is now getting music instantly or if it's not available on CD.
