    Ooh, just checked an album* I was thinking about getting and all the tracks are iT+ and they are 99¢ each. Oooh. Tempted.





    * Iron & Wine's The Shepherd's Dog- link.


    :edit: And and and and-- with the limited Facebook free 5 iTMS song codes, it didn't matter if the songs were Plus or not; might have been foreshadowing this change in pricing.

    Another thing I just noticed.

    Looks like these albums are on indie labels, not EMI. Could the iTunes Plus catalog be expanding real soon (ie: tomorrow)?

    Some more hints?

    Frank Black's 93-03 CD shows up as iTunes Plus, but none of the tracks have the + logo next to them when you view the album (and they list for $0.99 per track).

    Band of Horses shows up as iTunes Plus with $0.99 iTunes Plus tracks.

    I reported this ages ago on mactalk.com.au. Even took a screenshot of The Go Team's new album being in the iTunes Plus format:

    That's in Australian dollars, by the way. And they didn't have the little + icon next to the tracks, either.
