While the company has declined to comment on the matter, the sources said the low price at the iTunes Music Store was likely a mistake. The bargain was available last Thursday from the early morning to late afternoon, when it was possible to download Toshiba EMI albums at 50 yen each. Dozens of albums, including those by rock group RC Succession and singer Saori Yuki, sold at the price.
