How-to Make an iTunes LP for Your Indie Band


theAppleBlog has put together a nicely detailed, step-by-step how-to for creating your very own -- or your indie band's own -- iTunes LP.

The iTunes LP is the new format Apple has been pushing in iTunes. It’s more like a DVD than anything else. You have menus, music, photos, liner notes and videos. Since this is such a fresh format, not many albums are available in it yet. The good news is, you can make your own.

If you decide to give it a go, let us know how your iTunes LP turns out!
