Apple has posted a free 20-song Holiday Sampler in its new iTunes LP format. iTunes LP can display lyrics, liner notes, performance videos, photos, and other bonus materials all within the iTunes interface.

The Holiday Sampler iTunes LP reminds me of a DVD interface displaying an animated snow background. From the main menu you can click one button to play the entire sampler or others to view the selections by song or artist. After clicking one of the buttons you can view the cover art and lyrics and play the song or return to the main menu.

  1. O Come All Ye Faithful - Amy Grant
