Apple’s iTunes Music Store named ‘Best Music Service’ at Digital Music Awards

“Apple’s iTunes Music Store won recognition once again last night, at the Digital Music Awards. The service took first prize in the ‘Best Music Service’ category, beating off competition from Napster, Sony Connect, MyCokeMusic and KarmaDownload. The ceremony took place at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire,” Jonny Evans reports for Macworld UK.

“Around 1,500 music and tech/music professionals attended the event, which was presented by BT Broadband… Apple’s iTunes team sat at table number 10 last night – scant feet away from Sony representatives, but declined to give interviews on their achievement. A representative of the UK independent labels did confirm that some labels remain frustrated at Apple’s progress getting their music onto iTunes,” Evans reports.

  1. It was the Indie labels that played hard to get, trying to wring a few pennies more from Apple. Now they are frustrated about the slow pace?
    “Those who are late will be punished by life”, wasn’t that Gorbatchev’s famous quote?

  2. “I’ve seen some great bands there – including Ozzy Osborne and Black Sabbath!”

    Alarm! Syntax error! “great bands ” and “Ozzy Osbourne” do not belong in the same sentence.

    But congrats to iTunes. Digital Music Awards wins the “Stating the Obvious” Award

  3. And was it not also the former BBC TV Theatre, also known as the home of Wogan and Crackerjack.

    My last visit there was to see the King of Suave, a certain Mr. Bryan Ferry – God I’d like to look that good when I’m 58.

    Truth be told, I’d like to look that good now.

  4. I think the tense vis a vis the status of Roxy Music is “is” right at the moment – there are continual rumours of new material being produced by Ferry/Mackay/Manzanera and with the added benefit of The Great Paul Thompson back on drums.
