    Beyond the Gates is only available to US customers. Please don’t promote stuff with distribution restriction. By putting up with these DRM shenanigans you’re doing both artists and their audience a disservice

    Fritz wrote “I’m forever having to explain that it’s pronounced LYber, not LEEber, and correspondingly spelled Leiber, not Lieber. “Lieber” is a moderately common German name meaning “dear” or “lover,” and frequently, though not always, indicative of its owner being Jewish, while “Leiber” is a relatively uncommon German name with no particular meaning or indications at all (“leib” by itself means “body”).”
