THE SMALL PRINT APPEARS: So, there are shortcomings with the Apple Music Store - not that this has hampered the four-downloads-every-second the site is reportedly managing. But, for example, it appears the ninety nine cents a pop promise doesn't quite work like that - and its down to some artists choosing to only allow certain tracks to be downloaded as part of whole albums. Which does, of course, damage the whole central conceit of the service - if, for example, you have a burning desire to own Don Maclean's American Pie, you have to take a whole album of his work at a time. Or, of course, go to an illegal download site and get the only song you want. Don's only got himself to blame.
