More proof that the music industry is killing itself

Two years ago, I used ITUNES to help create a playlist of singles by THE KINKS.
I plucked tunes such as "(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman," "Destroyer" and "Low Budget" from the band's 1970s albums on ARISTA RECORDS, so that I could combine this American hit singles with the classic BRITISH INVASION-era songs from the 1960s.
I couldn't replicate that procedure today, because inexplicably those Arista albums are absent from the iTunes U.S. store in 2014.
This absence makes no sense from the customer's perspective, and instead offers more proof that streaming (legal or otherwise) isn't killing the MUSIC INDUSTRY.
Instead, the industry is killing itself thanks to an outdated and illogical business model.
To put this into perspective, the absence of the Kinks' 1970s material would be akin to a popular author's books suddenly disappearing from a book store.
I can understand that complicated licensing agreements probably resulted in the removal of the Kinks' material, and that I will have to look elsewhere for Arista-era songs in the future.
Meanwhile, I wonder if the music industry will realize what it is doing to itself: Driving customers from its doors, just when it needs them to enter and make purchases.
