For those who have asked how they go about downloading ‘Smile’ (the edit or the demo) and ‘Island Jam’, here are some alternatives to iTunes (in alphabetical, not preferential, order).
I hope they prove useful. Let me know how you fare, as I haven’t tried them all for myself and others would no doubt appreciate the recommendation.
HMV – Pay for each song or download as much as you want for £14.99 a month.
Napster – Seven-day free trial. Napster Lite tracks cost 79p each.
The Raft – Tracks cost 99p each. PC users only.
Virgin – Each track costs 79p.
Virgin (US) – For fans in the US. Unlimited downloads for $7.99 per month.
WH Smith – In conjunction with Napster, but get a 30-day free trial instead.
Woolworths – Again, each track costs 79p.
‘Smile’ is being played on BBC Radio 2, but not nearly enough as it should be. Don’t let me stop you if you want to e-mail the presenters and tell them that there’s this great song…
Today’s photo is taken from the band rehearsals on 18/19 May. This is where they warmed up for the three London shows, which we have greatly enjoyed you commenting on.
More photos from these sessions coming soon.
