Yep, I distinctly remember Joe saying he would never do the bonus track thing again...

Grrr.  Now have to try to cancel my J&R preorder.

Re: Target selling "Redemption" album with 3 extra songs

You can never predict what J&R are going to do next.
Joe said he’d had enough of doing tribute concerts and look what happened there!
Annoying if you’ve already preordered thought.

Lester...

He took it all too far,
but boy, could he play guitar.

Re: Target selling "Redemption" album with 3 extra songs

I think it's great:

1) Bonus tracks are always nice!
2) Music selling at retail is great to see!
3) There's enough interest in JB and blues/rock in general for Target to bother cutting a deal!

I held off on preordering, but I'll certainly do it now.  So I guess in that respect it worked.

Re: Target selling "Redemption" album with 3 extra songs

I like supporting brick and mortar stores. I stopped buying from J&R because of that when Joe’s music began to be carried locally..
Bonus tracks!

Re: Target selling "Redemption" album with 3 extra songs

Agree with Zeyer, I just don't care for J&R whiplashing the fans with the after-the-preorder-fact by only then coming out with the extra track option.  Feels like a slap across the face to Joe's most loyal... 

Oh well, guess I have more important things to worry about, but now twice burned, I've learned a lesson.

Of course always good to get extra music!

Re: Target selling "Redemption" album with 3 extra songs

yeah, curious mostly because I do remember Joe mentioning not doing that again.
Otherwise, also glad i didn't preorder yet but i prob will because you get it early sometimes big_smile plus I'll want both versions plus usually good price. Luckily I stopped my must have everything Joe obsession way before it got to be unachievable.

I imagine there was many logisitcal reasons for not being able to let the fans know about the special edition one.
I haven't looked but I hope that eventually the bonus tracks become available since the BestBuy DSOB was limited edition and I assume Target's will be too.
When Blues Deluxe came out you could go online to hear the two bonus tracks, which was cool, then they became available in the store.
When I get some time i will inquire/send request to see about bonus tracks from DSOB and hope they can put them for sale digitally and hope same for Redemption when enough time has passed. hope there is possibility, have no idea what that sort of 'deal' entails but yeah would be cool to see Joe cd in Target for a number of reasons. For me that overrides my little bummer about it.
mostly can't wait for the release date!

Re: Target selling "Redemption" album with 3 extra songs

My main reason for not bothering pre-order some time ago, is it never gave any advantage to the pre buyer/fan
It only establishes the entry level into the charts for the artist

You dont save money,  have to add shipping on.
(BIG shipping if you live in Canada like me)

I don't need to be first on the block to hear the release either.

Better to just buy at a store I found

Re: Target selling "Redemption" album with 3 extra songs

I also like to shop at brick and mortar store...even though technically Targets are, i tend to think smaller business...that being said my local smaller biz record store is technically an FYE now so...but anyway they do have new releases on sale but its still usually more than J n R price or about the same with shipping.

I just looked and noticed it doesnt look like Joe's store still sells individual digital songs but you can get the 3 bonus songs from DSOB by buying the whole album there. Doesn'[t look like the two bonus tracks from the Japanese edition of Balck Rock are available though. prob on itunes still maybe idk

I remember being SUPER frustrated at Best Buy - beyond the typical Best Buy frustration, because their website would indicate copies in specific store then once in store no one could find them.....finally did score a few. Also beware , not sure how Target will handle it but also i think online there might be a period where it will show the limited edition but if already sold out, you may get the regular before their website catches up, idk, could happen.

There is one advantage to buying pre-sale through J and R, they often ship before the release date. I have gotten the cd a day or so early before. That pretty cool, especially for me because I often travel Fridays when the release date is. Those extra few days mean a tremendous amount to me. Also IIRC you get a digital copy as well? I forget, its been so long!!!! big_smile

Also it is fun to be in a store around people, with a Joe shirt on, buying Joe stuff and smiling

I'd like Joe to make a "rarities" album w these bonus songs, the 3 from DSOB, Woke Up Dreaming from the Beacon Theatre, the 2 Japanese exclusive from Blackrock, the dvd/bluray only songs from Radio City Music Hall (and the 4-5 songs like John Henry that he played but didn't release),  Are You Experienced from Live From Nowhere....  He wouldn't need to make physical copies, just a digital album.

Re: Target selling "Redemption" album with 3 extra songs

The bonus tracks are a sound idea for a physical disc to boost sales versus downloads
Maybe it’s an inroads to Target with some in store promo.
So perhaps on website presale not the way to go unless you have to have it a little sooner. Some of the packages are nice if you want that but then you don’t get the bonus tracks so that sucks as well
No perfect solution for this if that’s what they want to do
  I guess biz is biz.Dont think it’s something to get too steamed up about.But I would be a little upset if I had bought the presale and now got this info just like the Best Buy  fiasco.If I did I would be looking for some redemption on this .

I had also mentioned this a few times before in the past about a rare tracks type album from his whole career.If there are enough good tracks on the cutting floor it would be cool.

Re: Target selling "Redemption" album with 3 extra songs

Don't know if I'll get shammed for mentioning this BUT those extra tracks usually end up on You Tube.... There's software to get music from You Tube....
