Agreed! My dad bought me that cassette tape back in 1985 or so. I had to hide it from my Christian conservative mom. Good memories!

Correct, however they had broken it specially for Music/Catalina, (along with Album Art).
A more appropriate title would be, “iTunes Remote App Finally Fixed for Music/Catalina, and Gains Dark Mode”

Have it on vinyl back in 1985 and still cherish it today. Regularly play it now (via Apple Music), even though my wife hates it - Jump is the worst song on the album. ‘House of Pain’ just amazing. ? ?
