iTunes now offering two-song Digital 45s


Harkening back to the days of the vinyl 45 rpm record, the iTunes Store has launched a new section of the store for “D45s.” As with vinyl 45s, these new digital packs contain two songs, traditionally made up of a single and B-side. Currently available D45s include selections from artists such as David Bowie, Prince, Coldplay, Foreigner, and The Doors; pricing ranges from $1.49 to $1.99.

What’s the point of this? Seems like a stupid gimmick to me.

This only happened because very few are are buying songs at $1.29 as Steve Jobs predicted. The record companies just don’t get it and this is their attempt to get you to buy the $1.29 song with mainly a garbage/throwaway song thrown in to make us believe we are getting a deal! :-(

@Joe Attardi: these Digital 45s will often include non-album B-Sides, unavailable anywhere else.
