New kids on the Blues block

I just bought the debut CDs of Oli Brown and of Dani Wilde. I'll keep an eye on these two new kids on the block.

A taste of Blues from Oli Brown is here.

Dani Wilde instead can be heard here on a John Lee Hooker classic

Rotten apple meets the amazon

I just found that I can't login any more into my iTunes account. "This Apple ID has not yet been used with the iTunes Store" I am told. Clearly it's not the case as I have already spent few bucks in the shop. I have few pounds left - I am hoping to spend as little as possible troubleshooting the issue (first clue is that I just updated to iTunes 8).

Anyway, I will not care for long: I have just relised - a bit late I know - that Amazon is selling DRM free MP3s cheaper than iTunes Store.

And, by the way, iTunes' interface still sucks big time hasn't improved at all.
