I missed the first 2 days' too. I am a Linn Records fan (mainly for Barb Jungr), switched over from Chesky Records. Bought a few of their SACDs this year. They sound just divine. I wonder how am I gonna get the ep without paying £5.40 for the 24bit flac.

Good find. Disappointed that I missed Electric Counterpoint. Will be interested to see what else they release.

Oh no, missed day 3 and day 4. Thanks for the heads up.

But you didn't miss the 1st dl. The EP. It costs £5.40 now. I missed it. I'm not gonna miss any of the rest. I wish there was some way we could trade.

Me too! But the OCD in me lead to buying the actual track...

Hope I don't miss another track...

Thanks both.
They're interesting tracks across a wide range of musical types and the few I have been able to download have introduced me to some interesting new performers and performances. Next year I will be ready!

Yes. This is the 3rd year Linn are offering these. I didn't miss any last year.

Happy Christmas Eve everyone!

Merry Christmas everyone! Please read Day 25. Its well worth it!

I had a hunch about the code and tested it out.

My hunch was correct. The code reduces every track to £0.00 if a multiple of three tracks has been added to the basket.

Simply put, you can add 24 tracks for free rather than just 3!

Only a few hours left to do so though.
