I can't find that album anywhere
My correspondence with iTunes:
Me: I recently switched from a PC to a Mac and I successfully moved all my purchased iTunes music to the new Mac using IP over firewire. Or I thought I did. For the life of me I can't find my purchase of Bob Dylan's The Freewheelin Bob Dylan anywhere. On either computer. I am afraid I somehow deleted it.
Could I redownload the purchase from iTunes? Please let me know if this is possible. Thanks!
Emily at iTunes: I understand that you switched from a PC to a Mac, and you were able to transfer all of your iTunes Store items except for the album "The Freewheelin Bob Dylan Anywhere". I apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused you. I would be happy to assist you in regards to this matter.
I reviewed your iTunes Store and found that the version of the album "The Freewheelin Bob Dylan Anywhere", is no longer available in the iTunes Store. I sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.
Since the version that you purchased is no longer available, I have issued 5 replacement song credits to your account "firstname.lastname@example.org", which you can use to buy the individual songs of your choice from the iTunes Store.
So, let's see. She couldn't find the album "The Freewheelin Bob Dylan Anywhere" ... I guess it is the thought that counts, but I must admit after reading this ...
A small tear slowly trickled down my face.

Yes, Shane, but you can use those 5 credits to download some NEW Janet Jackson songs! Or, you could download the current #1 song in America, "Low," by future legends Flo Rida (that's a take-off on Florida) and T-Pain. The choices are endless.
Why keep Bob Dylan around when talent like this is available?

No Freewheelin' Bob Dylan i I-Tunes! My God what next no Cheap Trick - Live at Budakan?.
I hear there's also a new re-mix of Promiscious by Nellie Furtado featuring Naz, you may want to check that out too!

Personally, I'd rather have Janet Jackson than Bob Dylan...oh, wait, we're talking about sound files here and not video files? Shoot...

Could have been worse. Dylan's album could have been replaced by an unremovable Tom Petty album.

Cheesehead. I am so sorry to hear about your loss.

You could always buy the CD and import it to your iTunes library.
