now I wonder if this means The Beatles will be turning up soon :D no that's just wishful thinking on my part as I know all involved with the beatles back catelauge is deeply appose to digital music and such...bastards.
Oh well, I'll just have to keep building my beatles collection the way I have been...pawn shop vinyl

Awesome. Even though I still rather buy CD's than download music, I'm glad to see good artists making it to iTunes.

Other than a couple of Zappa tracks recorded by others, I couldn't find anything. Am I missing something?

That's what happened. It started disappearing about a day after it went up.

It literally happened over the weekend, because the catalog was there on Friday, and when my girlfriend tried to buy a song, it said it couldn't be purchased, and now today the songs aren't even listed, although there is still a Frank Zappa page that says it is all on iTunes. There is also an "essential Frank Zappa" page on iTunes still, just with no songs in it.

I was just about to buy a bunch!

Same here, I went to go look for a particular song and was surprised to see that one cover album in there and nothing else, and even nothing in the essentials section either. Surprising to me because I remember when they started having FZ's music in there and how it was a big event since they had all of his works in there.

Sadly, none of my ripped CDs have been matched. It's weird staring at Bongo Fury in the store, but my copy is still all uploaded. I've deleted from iCloud and readded, still uploaded.
