Best Buy Band on the Run extra DVD
If you buy the new remastered edition of “Band On The Run” at the American chain store “Best Buy”, you get an extra DVD not available if you should happen to be such a miserable creature that you unfortunately live somewhere in the world where you don’t just happen to have a “Best Buy” store to pop in and buy it from.
1) “Band on the Run” 2010 EPK (8:31)
2) “Jet” (5:36)
3) “Mrs. Vandebilt” (5:13)
4) “Band on the Run” (5:36)
The three extra tracks are recent concert versions of these songs.
This tradition of favouritism of people in a single one of the world’s countries heralds back to the releases of the japanese 2-disc version of “Flowers in the Dirt”, the German 2-disc release “Off The Ground – The Complete Works” and the release of “Flaming Pie” in 1998, when customers at “Best Buy” in the USA got an extra CD featuring an episode of Paul McCartney’s Oobujoobu radio show. For us die-hard collectors, all this means is that we have to go on ebay and buy it from an American at an inflated price. WogBlog hates this practice. It’s funny that Concorde Records (and formerly Capitol/EMI with earlier releases) haven’t realised that making a disc available in just one country (or chain store) is the best way to ensure that the disc will become a worldwide popular illegal upload and download on internet blogs and torrent sites.
