Hello, I have a question, I'm on album club (before the album came out) and should get 15 free downloads but I haven't got any email of any information how to get them. Am I the only one ? :D

Im pretty sure they've not sent the vouchers out yet - I dont think anyone has one.
We'll just have to be patient - the downloads arent going to disappear!

Galileo over at QOL said that some last minute legal papers had to be worked out all of a sudden, due to the coupons essentially making these tracks free giveaways in a way.

Brian also mentioned similar stuff, if you might recall, when he was about to release "Last Horizon" backing track quite a while ago.

I don't quite understand why the legal document work would need to be done since it's being released by the artists themselves, but I guess EMI/Parlophone have some sort of clauses regarding such giveaways?

Well. They are not giveaways as such.
We've all paid £2 for them....

It's probably Jim Beach who is complaining that it's not enough!

I imagine that someone had forgotten to add the copyright smallprint to say that although the tracks were 'free' giveaways to Album Club members, we could still not record, distribute, copy etc.. them in the usual way.  If that was missing then we would truly 'own' the tracks which QPL would not like!

Am I the only one who's afraid that in the end of all this, we'll get 15 tracks THEY've chosen for us? And that will mean yet another renditions of TYMD, WWRY, WATC etc..

Id dislike that of course, but Im pretty sure thats not going to be the case, as the last message regarding this from the site said we should be able to use the voucher for ANY of the available tracks, which pretty much covers a free live album's worth of material - not bad if you ask me!

You should be, it's been explicitly stated that this will not be the case.

Well those tracks are abut all they're playing again this time around so that's what well get!!!!

It would be good if they made available the stuff like Long Away, Dragon Attack and Take Love from 2005

And another thing, what are they playing at having a version of All Right Now downloadable without Roger playing the drums??  It's bad enough not having John on bass, but to then flog a track advertised as Queen with only one of them on is taking the piss!  What next, a version of Last Horizon with Jamie Moses playing it instead of Brian?!!!  (no offence to Jamie, but you get the point)

How about a debit card?

Or a friend with a credit card?
