Thank you YVG Software Services as you have saved me time.  The way to a programmer's heart is by saving him/her time.  You wrote the iTunes Art Importer, and it was your FIRST VB.NET Application.  It uses the Amazon.com Web Service to find Album Covers for my iTunes collection - and it just works.  Kudos to you, and God bless you. :)  And thank you iTunes for having a COM Automation interface.  Ain't that something, a little .NET, a little Web Services, a little OLE Automation and a hard problem is solved n times.

(See their importer, there below iTunes itself?  Shiny, eh? I've set it off to find art for 4700+ songs.  A few hundred in, and I've got a 90% hit rate.)
