iTunes "Live New York EP"... @ 09:28 pm

silentbob037:
iTunes now has an exclusive downloadable EP from the Brooklyn Bridge show. The set list is...

1) All Because Of You
2) Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
3) I Will Follow
4) Vertigo

I'm not sure if this is going to be added to the "Complete U2" set that they have available through the service.

No, it's not. What pisses me off is that the iTunes store isn't available where I live. Pisses me off for being excluded in everything.

Hong Kong.

I have the U2 iPod. But since I live in a country that doesn't have an iTunes store, they didn't include the $50 coupon for the U2 iTunes set. I know I have a lot of the music but the rare tracks and all the singles from the vinyl days would have been nice. And now they are going to start selling concert tracks which are much nicer quality than the bootlegs I have would be a bonus that again, I can't have access to.

I wonder if U2 ever thought of that when they started working with Apple. Only fans from 15 countries can access this while the entire rest of the world can't. I want to write to U2 and Apple just for that.

poor thing *pets*

I'm sure they should widen it soon, they must be working on that. Maybe someone in this community can help you by purchasing it for you with your money and sending it?

I'm hoping my friend on my friends list will get it when she gets the U2 iPod for X'mas. I said we'd split the cost. But *sigh* I don't think she'll get the other concert stuff. She's a fan but not big enough to collect concerts. I hate asking and relying.

That's terrible. I heard Ireland doesn't get it either. Their own turf!

iTunes can be a very odd thing. They can't handle any kind of conversions so I've been unable to buy the Band Aid 20 single off of the UK version of the site because I'm supposed to only buy off of the US one.

Really? Can't you just buy it off the official Band Aid site? Since there's no iTunes here, I just bought the CD single at HMV the other day. I think the original version is much better.

Due to release dates and all that fun stuff, the record company has no plan to release the Band Aid 20 single in the US at all. The only way to get it over here is to find it as an import and, since there are a lot of people trying to get this single, those import copies don't last too long on the shelves.

This has nothing to do with "conversions" and everything to do with Apple having to license the music they sell through the music labels. Different countries mean different agreements with the appropriate music labels for each country and that in turn means people can only buy music through the (country) store of their residency :(

If iTunes is not available in a particular country it can means one of two things: 1) Apple hasn't had a chance to make arrangements with the music labels operating in that country or 2) the music labels in that country are holding things up.

It sucks but you can only blame it on the big music labels. not on Apple and certainly not on U2.

What you've got are the first three singles from the album and then a classic song for all of the long time fans to want to get.

The "Complete U2" is a packaged deal and additional items won't be added to it; however, it may be that some day, items that are only available through the package will be made available for separate purchase (ie, Rare and Unreleased tracks, etc).

I'm pretty handy with iTunes for Windows -- let me know if you want some help...
