I recently got five free tracks from iTunes (Londoners with Oystercards see here) and thought I would buy Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra. Unfortunately, on some CDs it is divided into lots of tracks < 1 minute long, each costing £.79, while on other discs it is on a single track... but because of its length you can only download it if you buy the whole album (£7.99). Bah!

  1. That’s as nothing compared to my irritation at how you can’t store vital information such as composer/librettists/conductors (yes, plural – Britten’s War Requiem generally uses two)/orchestras (again plural)/soloists/choirs/location (vital for anything involving an organ)/etc. Because damnit it *does* matter to me that this is the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by von Karajan
