You've missed it mate - they only gave a few away, so us Brits and Eurotrash swiped them all.

There's a chance it could show up on the official site as a download today. So far, it's been similar to when Amazon listed a Beyond Here Lies Nothin' single and it ended up as a limited time free download before going on sale. A release of ERK today and Scarlet Town on the 17th would be close to the way they rolled out previews for BHLN and I Feel a Change Comin' On in the lead up to Together Through Life. That album topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, so it would make sense to promote the new album the same way.

Do you honestly think our little corner of the universe is that important? For them to pull back from a scheduled release? I think not. :lol:



Suspect you're right unless there was a fear that the reaction in our little corner would be replicated elsewhere. Then again, that seems unlikely....

I think to be fair, this website is invariably cited as the No.1 online resource for all things Bob Dylan. If I were a marketing person at Sony BMG, and wanted some kind of litmus test of reaction (albeit by an obsessive tiny minority, granted) then I reckon I'd certainly have a look at these various threads. Not suggesting the reaction here would rock them in their boots, only that it might well be part of the equation, especially if there had already been some kind of equivocation over the merits of releasing this single.

I'm looking for a place that will collect, clip, bath and return my dog. I want a dog that's gonna collect and clean my bath, return my cigarette, and, and give tobacco to my animals, and give my birds a commission. I want- I'm looking for somebody to sell my dog, collect my clip, buy my animal and straighten out my bird. I'm looking for a place to bathe my bird, buy my dog, collect my clip, sell me cigarrets and comission my bath. I'm looking for a place that's gonna collect my commission, sell my dog, burn my bird, and sell me to the cigarette. Going to bird my buy, collect my will, and bathe my comission. I'm looking for a place that's going to animal my soul, knit my return, bathe my foot and collect my dog. Comission me to sell my animals to the bird to clip and buy my bath and return me back to the cigarettes, and it sure ain't Amazon!!!!

In what way would anything posted here put the kibosh on releasing a download of e.r.k.?

Sure they got nothing better to do than reading through a dozen pages posted by nutcases who wouldn't be satisfied regardless of what they release. The day $ony runs a poll here before a release they're lost.

I think if Bob ever posted here, he would be ridiculed and / or have his posts deleted.

For all we know, Bob DOES post here. **cue eerie music as we all suspiciously look around at each other**

From my online chat with Amazon customer service in states at 12:40 Eastern Time.

Amazon: "Thanks again *&*^% , though the release date is for today the content is not yet made available for purchase , please give us a little more time and place the order later, there is no problem on your end , the problem is from my end and I will escalate this to our back end and will try to fix this as soon as possible
I request you to give us little more time and place the order later"

Me:later today you think? Do you have any time frame? Really wanted to have that file before I take my plane ride lol.

Amazon:"I hope it will get available for customers by the end of the day , but unable to confirm the time frame."

I did, and I got a response a few hours later, but I don't think the person knew that much:

Quote:
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. This usually doesn't happen.

We'll have to look into the problem with the Early Roman Kings detail page a little more deeply. I've contacted our technical specialists who should be able to help us in this regard.

Situations such as this are rare, and our goal is to help resolve any problems you encounter as quickly as possible. I'm sorry I was unable to solve this problem more quickly but will follow up with the team and write back to you within 1-2 business days with more information.


Although I've run into a lot of technical problems with Amazon listings, I'm not sure this is the case here. Would't it be on iTunes?

Would you really want an email from Amazon after you received the mp3?

This is what amazon told me:

Quote:
I'm not sure when this is available for download, I hope it will be done soon.
We're constantly establishing and improving our agreements with record companies so we can offer the largest range of content possible. However, I've let the Mp3 team know you're interested in this song. They will carefully review and consider your request.

Then he said:

It will be available soon, but I cannot tell you the exact time frame because it is decided by the record label companies.

my guess is that they are changing the release date of the single. if it is supposed to premiere on that stupid show, then they won't have an exclusive if it is released digitally beforehand.
