I don't know how this is in the US, but stopping into my local A&B I saw the regular version (no slip cover), and in overlaid black on white on the booklet front cover: "This disc will not play in a PC or Mac" This is not a compact disc. The music industry is in such a crumbling, paranoid state because it does not have the sense to work with the current state of digital music technology. Instead of charging too much, and being a faceless corpororate business, it really ought to learn how to effectively compete with a new business model. The CD single is a failure, because it is far too much to spend on a hit song (between 50-75% of the full album price). The lost vinyl single was a great value at (typically) 1/5th the selling price of the vinyl LP. If CD's are so much cheaper to make, why do record companies have to charge so much more for them? The big five have really lost touch with the music industry.
