I am an xbox music subscriber (the service formaly known as zune) and was pleasantly surprised to see Understanding America in the new release section. I clicked through and low and behold the reissues up through lather were there as well as UA and finer moments. Missing was Road Tapes.

For those of you who do not know, xbox music is a streaming service with total on demand control, and offline listening. It is $99 a year or free with adverts (I got a year for free with my recent surface purchase as one of the first 100 in line)

Mike Keneally, Residents and now Zappa all at my fingertips (or eartips)!

I installed Zune on Xbox before it was Naff free version so it said do you wonna free month i thought yes i'll try,they wanted credit(debit) card and i fell for it it went into £8.99 subscription after free month which i cancelled don't laugh the kids wanted it :wink: so really it must be possible too download the lot for nothing if you cancel Debit before second month 8)

The songs you download are DRM'd so if it can't complete a server check once a month for an active subscription, they won't play. For me its about convenience since I own all the albums anyway, this just saves me having to travel with them. That said, Sound Taxi will strip DRM but I have not tried it as I have zero intention of ending my subscription.

Nice too know that thing like Sky TV recording cancel subscipsion and nothing recored will playback only extra £10 on top of the rest though in they're case,though Zune like you said seems like a good deal now anyway i just too fussy if i do say so my self which don't make the most sence considering my TV as way better quality than my micky mouse speakers on my PC.
