i was exploring the iTunes Japan Store yesterday and i did a search on Miss Nakamori of course and see what returns i found! there was a total of 7 albums (mostly from Universal Japan & her recent re-releases of SHAKER, UTA HIME, UNBALANCE+BALANCE. and La Alteracion) & 2 singles on sale and download! pretty good move i say. Akina should put her ENTIRE catalogue of singles, albums, and perhaps some rare tracks and remixes…or even unreleased recordings! you can see that there ARE people buying her tracks. so i think it will actually bring in alot more money for her if she heads this way. especially when so many of her fans are overseas. KACHINGGG!
but currently, iTunes Japan Store is only available to residents of Japan, or you must have a Japan-based credit card. they should just have on single store and open it up to everyone! the record labels and Apple and artistes will make alotta money!!
