I don't know how you're counting on people to discover the albums, but a search for "C64" on the DK/UK/US iTunes stores revealed 13 albums. And only one of those is a C64Audio.com production (BITLive). Seems the only way to find the stuff is knowing *exactly* what you want and then doing a search, so I'm guessing that the low sales are partly due to people not being able to stumble upon the music.

At any rate, I'll be sure to mention Nexus I/II being available on iTunes should I ever get around to producing another episode of the C64 Take-away, since I have listeners who'se asked about it.

Indeed with the keyword thing: I don't know how exactly I'm supposed to tell iTunes they're not using the proper keywords! Anyone have a contact email for someone who cares?

I'll also be putting the iTunes URLs on the website when I next update it as an option.

I'm amazed that Project: Galway is available on iTunes. After all it's "just" SID music.

Does Queen get royalties everytime someone buys "Highlander"? :)

Actually, they do!

And since Project Galway is a "proper" CD and recorded from MGs own SID chip, I guess it's OK :)
