[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> So, Steve mentioned iTunes LP. Let's take a look. Here are five albums that I bought from the store. And these are some really great albums with some fantastic iTunes LP extras. Let me show you The Doors. [ Music ] It's a great interactive experience. It's got photos, videos, memorabilia, chronology, even liner notes. And if I got to the song list, you can see all the songs that are on the album. I can just play it and of course, we've got the lyrics. [ Music ] I can just flip through the songs. [ Music ] When I see something I like, this one's really great. I'm going to play it. [ Music ] The photos are amazing. [ Music ] If you're a Doors fan, this kind of extra material is simply priceless. Can go full screen. ^M00:01:10 [ Music ] ^M00:01:20 It's even got some exclusive videos. These videos were recorded exclusively for this iTunes LP. Here's one from the keyboardist of the Doors. >> Jim and I went to the film school at UCLA. >> Then I go to the second, I really think is cool here. >> At that point, I said well this is it, man, we've got to get a band together. And let's, let's get a band together. And he said, Ray that's exactly what I had in mind. I said man, cool. Except what do we call the band? And he said The Doors. And I said, the what? The Doors? That's like the most ridiculous, oh wait a minute, you mean like the doors in your mind. Elvis Huxley's book, The Doors of Perception. He said exactly. >> There's some great extras on these iTunes LP. [ Applause ] Let me show you one more. This one's from Dave Mathews Band. [ Music ] These, they can be so beautiful.

You can see all the lyrics. ^M00:02:44 [ Music ] ^M00:03:01 And just like the Doors, there are exclusive videos here. All sorts of extra content. If you're a fan, this is a great way to rediscover music with albums. So I've, I have one last thing I want to show you. And that's something that we're calling iTunes Extras.
