My boss, Mark D., actually did that. He downloaded the U2 title from iTunes, printed all the cover art, burned a disc, and put it in a jewel case. He was listening to it on the CD player in his office yesterday when I had a conversation with him about it.russ wrote:I bought it on i-tunes today..havent really had the time to play it enough to see if it is any good, but I just HAD to comment on one thing that I applaud U2 for.
When you buy this album on i-tunes, it also downloads an acrobat pdf file of the entire cd cover and booklet art as well! Lyrics ,photos and everything.
I have been waiting for SOMEONE to finally recognize that fans want the liner notes as well when buying music online.
Sure, it would be a hassle to print it all, and cut it out and "make a booklet" at home, but its cool enough to just read it on screen.
I'm just thrilled that they added it to the download.
I hope more artists do the same!!!
For what it is worth, I did this almost a year ago for my friend Shawn's band, Limes, when I built them a little web site:
When you download a ZIP archive of all the tracks as MP3s, it includes the CDs cover art, including the back tray card, as a PDF that can be printed out.
