Newly added to iTunes, all of John Lennon's work is now available to download.

You can buy his Anthology album - 94 songs (!) - for £9.99. And the tacks are all "plus" tracks so greater rights than normal tracks - or something!

Most of the well known tracks are there but some are duplicated as they were on more than one album.

Still a good price if you're into Lennon.

I'm currently on 78 to go!

sorry to sound a bit thick (never used itunes)

do you have a have an ipod to play songs or can you use any mp3 player and record songs to cd etc?

Welcome to HUKD willsdaddy

iTunes Plus are DRM free and will work on any player that supports AAC encoding.

Regular itunes songs you can also "rerip" into mp3's but it's a bother.

Edit: If you're just looking to burn to cd you can do that easy and no prob from iTunes and then play them on any cd player.

thanks badass and admin :thumbsup:

thanks badass and admin :thumbsup:


Same person isn't it :whistling:

great price!

Make sure you have enabled iTunes Plus purchases in your iTunes Account or you'll end up getting the DRM'ed songs.

Formats/Figures:
iTunes standard tracks:
128Kbps Protected AAC (.m4p)
Portable Devices: iPod (All models since the Store launched) - File can be stored onto unlimited number of iPods
Burn to CD: each song can be burnt up to 5 times as an Audio CD (from which you can then reimport as any file format)
DRM: File otherwise copy protected

iTunes Plus tracks:
256Kbps Purchased AAC (.m4a)
Portable Devices: Any device that supports 256Kbps AAC files (works on iPod, Sony Ericsson Walkman phones, Samsung phones and more).
Note that these files can be converted to another format (e.g. MP3) from within iTunes itself.
Burn to CD: Unlimited CD burning
DRM: File is not copy protected, however the meta data within the file has a note of the e-mail address you registered with iTunes.

Bit of a bonus for the people that got the Evening Standard or Coca Cola free songs here:

I just used 7 free tunes, and used "Complete this album" to get the rest for £3.06.

I think you could use 9 and get it for £1.08, but don't use more than that as it disables complete this album if it is less than the price of the song.

This is not really a casual fan's listen:

a four-disc box set, comprised entirely of unreleased home recordings, demos, and outtakes, many of which have never been previously bootlegged. As it's constructed, it's more of an aural biography than a music album. All the dialogue snippets, half-finished songs, throwaways, and parodies ensure that it's never casual listening, yet that very approach creates an intriguing portrait of Lennon — a portrait of the man, not the artist. As such, there aren't really any forgotten treasures buried on the collection, even if many of these songs and takes are either completely unheard of or legendary among collecting circles. For every small pleasure, such as the Cheap Trick-backed version of "I'm Losing You," there is a small disappointment, such as how the Dylan diatribe, "Serve Yourself," doesn't quite live up to its legend. Ultimately, it doesn't matter if there are no major works or revelations, just a few good alternate tracks, because Anthology goes a long way toward capturing Lennon with all of his strengths and weaknesses.

Good that they are drm-free, and definitely a good deal if want collector's tracks (rather than actual polished finished music), and it's probably worth £10 even if you are only a casual fan.

Anyone know if these suffer fidelity loss on converting to mp3? Why don't they just let you download mp3s?

The CD set will cost £27

amazon.co.uk/Ant…8-1

though, you do get a proper collector's set with booklets and so on.

Apple has a stance that the AAC format is technically better than MP3 (and personally I agree).
Anyway, you can convert the purchased AAC's into MP3 from within iTunes.
First go into the Preferences, then choose the 'Advanced' tab.
Then choose the 'Importing' sub-tab.
Change the 'Import Using:' option to 'MP3 Encoder' (or AIFF, WAV, AAC - whichever format you prefer)
Now, iTunes Plus songs are encoded at 256Kbps, and there is no setting for that bit rate in MP3.
So, in the 'Setting:' option choose 'Custom...'
In the Custom MP3 Encoder settings, change the bit rate to 256kbps.

Click OK on any opened preference windows to save the settings.

Find the song(s) you want to convert, right-click and choose 'Convert Selection to MP3'.

Regarding conversion degradation, there's a very, very slight increase in background hiss when converting to MP3, this hiss only gets noticable when converting down to a lower bit rate.

That happened to me too, just open iTunes normally and search for John Lennon anthology in the store.

when i click the quidco link, it sends me to the itunes american home page (within the itunes application). Then i have to go back to home to get the UK page, but i've been getting 8% from them for months now :-s
