[ 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. [ Music ] Let me explore the songs. I can just flip through. You know the artwork for this LP was drawn by Dave Mathews himself.

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. Just like we've got iTunes LP for music, we have iTunes Extras for movies. So here's one for Wall E. [ Background noise ] It's got all sorts of extra features.
