I've seen the featured page, and I know that Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, and the Stones all have DRM-free songs, but I don't see any way of searching through all the iTunes Plus songs.

Does anyone have suggestions of DRM-free gems?

Won't it be the artists that are on EMI, list here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_musicians_signed_to_EMI) or here (http://www.emigroup.com/About/Music/Default.htm). Second one is probably better.

I was thinking about this yesterday... making a list of 100 great albums that are now DRM free.

I'll list some that I know were signed to EMI or one of its subsidiaries. I dunno if they're on iTunes or not, but it seems at least a fair shot.

Frank Sinatra -- In the Wee Small Hours (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_Wee_Small_Hours)
The Band -- Music from Big Pink (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_from_Big_Pink)
The Beach Boys -- Pet Sounds (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pet_Sounds)

That might be a good start.

I have decided from now on, to only buy when the DRM Free has been fully rolled out. At the moment I will buy artists in the EMI label ( I know there are some I enjoy), but shall branch out as and when the labels do.:p

I say this because I have probably spent thousands so far on the Store to date, and only just really realised the difference in the quality of 256kbps vs 128kbps. :)
