Default Paul McCartney Archive Collection Rip-Off

A Cautionary Tale.

Just a word of warning to anyone considering purchasing any of the Paul McCartney Archive Collection sets . I recently purchased a copy of 'Wings at the Speed of Sound ' boxset online only to find that the download page no longer works . I contacted the seller ( who did their best ) , Paul McCartney's webmaster ( no reply , no help ) and Universal Music ( worse than useless ) who informed me that as this was an 'old item' ( released in 2014 ) and they are no longer supporting it ( so stop selling them then ! ) they were unwilling to supply a new link or set of download files .

So Im returning my WATSOS boxset for a refund and would strongly advise people to check before they buy as Universal Music are not honouring their own attached contents sheet. Such a pity , as I already own 8 others in this series but that's it , no more for me . Paul McCartney deserves better , and so do we .

Very disappointing,

~M~

If you purchase a 100+ item that is 5 years old, it's on you. THIS is what happens to people who only rely on digital. Buy a damn CD player! I've got all of them, enjoy them very much, and I'm pretty sure all the download cards went into the trash without use. I have physical media & the players that play all of it.

What a ridiculousl post . How am I ‘relying on digital only ‘ ? Did you read my post before boarding your soapbox? I bought a physical set (Book/2CD/DVD ) which included a contents sheet (see pic ) advertising a digital high resolution copy of all the music on the set for those that care ( and I do , though you’re quite free not to ) as well as the physical copies !

How is it ‘on me ‘ just because it’s 5 years old ? It’s still advertised and available and unlike digital movie redemption codes it does not have an expiry date before which it must be purchased to avail of the download . Paul McCartney and his people obviously thought it added extra value to the set ( after all , they paid to have it made ) and I paid for the ‘full’ set too .
And these idiotic companies wonder why people resort to torrents/file sharing ......lol

Yeah, "Extra Value" to mean it doesn't last forever. These sets are not a rip-off. The only cautionary tale is for those few people who expect digital stuff to work at anytime after release date. It can't be trusted, period.

God love you ��You really haven’t got a clue have you ?
When you download files , the first thing you do is create 1 or preferably 2 backup copies same as any other important pc data . That should cover most eventualities. If Universal ( or anyone else ) choose to subsequently take down their downloads it’s not a problem , I got what I paid for and it’s ‘on me’ to look after it .

I get that you don’t like digital, that’s fine but in my case I paid for 4 items and received only 3 . The set is on its way back to Universal. To hell with them and their non-existent cus tomer service I will survive and thrive without them .

And my decade old Pink Floyd downloads still sound mighty fine ��

Cheers
