Thanks for the info. These "deluxe editions" available only at certain stores are so annoying. It just makes the person buying the CD feel cheated if they were unaware of a similiarly priced "bonus" cd available right around the corner. There should be a required warning on the regular version telling people there's a deluxe version out there and available, only not at this store ;-)
when you open an entertainment item (music, movie, game), you're only entitled to "exchange for same item" with the receipt from the store you bought it from.
This is a way to get 1 paying customer to buy 2 copies. Someone who buys it at best buy, opens it to listen to it, then a day later, goes to target for something best buy doesn't sell and sees their exclusive deluxe edition just might be tempted to buy it again.
that's just how I see it because I certainly don't remember these special store editions in the 80s and 90s.
I hear you. Unfortunately I think it actually encourages piracy, since now folks will wait to see what's all actually out there and then they'll download everything they want. They won't want to get burned by buying the "Wrong" version.
Emma: definitely do that....I just heard them, and those songs (IMHO) are better than most of the tracks on the regular album. To be fair, I've listened to the album a few more times and some of the standard songs are growing on me a bit more. Have a great weekend. Hope you enjoy the album....the deluxe version ;-)
I was being facetious. But I may not be too far off. Beyonce, Usher, & Gaga have milked their fans in the past by re-releasing CDs with bonus songs to boost sales. If I were a popular singer, I don't think I could have that mentality or blatant disregard for my fans. Oh well...
Almost all artists I can think of have a few versions of their albums eventually. I remember buying Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift rereleses. The Target commercial ran a whole lot on tv and it runs before her videos on YouTube to let people know the deluxe version is at Target. I think that this is one of the best albums of the year and I do like the deluxe songs as well.
