I'm just back from Italy. There was a CD-single with Reaching Out/Tie Your Mother Down/Fat Bottomed Girls.

I didn't buy it cos I was already loaded down with stuff. Thought I'd get it upon my return to the sunny shores of Northern Ireland.

But I don't see it. What's the craic??

BTW, just got round to buying the album. Opinion? A perfectly adequate souvenir of a brilliant evening....

Ciao for now

Paul

singles very seldom make profit these days - hence downloads are becoming popular, less costs in getting them out there.

Singles are pretty much just promo tools now. Some singles make money if they are around for a long time, but not often. Gets the song on the radio, highlights the album, get into the press, shows a presence in the chart - all built around raising awarness for the album.

Different countries have different buying cultures and charts of course. UK Singles market has been on its knees for years, plus we have no real hits anymore (James Blunt at No1 at the mo is a freaky result) they all just get in and get out over here.


In other words... If it isn't released in your country, it's because it wouldn't be profitable enough for the record company to do so.
