Super vinyl + digital download

#1 Post by daveid »

Sorry if this has been asked before but does anyone know whether customers (like myself) who have purchased the album from the official store get a digital download as per Amazon and other tax dodging bastards?
Thanks

I'll start again. Does he or she who hath purchatheth the album on vinyl also getteth a free mp3 download at the moment of releath? A la Amazon auto rip. Or is there a download code upon a slip of paper inserteth in the vinyl sleeve?

^I was only quoted what Neil said on the GRaham Norton show last week when asked ''what do you play it on?''

I assumed it was normal to get the mp3 download too? Not everyone has a vinyl ripping program

didn't have seen any announcements about getting the mp3s for free by buying the vinyl! So maybe not in the first weeks after release! But if it's still common to do such things on other artists records, then it will happen with PSB vinyls also!

I know, don't worry. I was a bit tipsy when I wrote that post :)

I also hate Amazon, but it's not to do with them - the download codes are generally included with vinyl, apart from some of the majors.

Don't know where to post this...

Anyone had their order from the official site dispatched yet? The Pop Kids arrived only on Tuesday for me, even though it was dispatched on March 17 (which is an incredible 12 days, although it states 4-7 working days in Europe)! That's 9 working days, but the delay was probably due to the Easter holidays etc.

So, if the CD dispatches tomorrow there's pratically no way I'll get it by next Friday when I go home for the weekend. Damn!

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

If you buy the vinyl on amazon (Germany that is) you get the mp3 files as well.

Official store? Amazon?

Neither, I ordered it from a store here in Norway.

I have no idea what's happening with my OS pre-order. As I'm sure any number of the forum members did, I pre-ordered The Pop Kids and Super at the same time and elected to have them dispatch individually as they became available. I got a dispatch notification for The Pop Kids that arrived in timely fashion.

As yet, I've not received a dispatch notification for Super, and my Order Status says "Pending". According to the OS help page, that status means that they are "awaiting stock from our supplier." If that's genuinely the case, it's a bit worry/disappointing as I was hoping the OS would ensure orders arrived (in the UK at least) on or by release day.

Now, I don't know if that status is right or not, or whether it's just because of a system glitch for orders like mine with multiple items/separate dispatch dates.

Yeah, well, I was asking specifically for the OS situation, I know I would've already got it almost if I ordered from another store. But hey, at least gave more money to Neil and Chris. :)
