    I downloaded it last night and on a first listen it was everything you might anticipate from both the band and the music. This is a great way to buy music. Having said that, I need some advice on the WoB Tunes download process itself. This may not be the right place Mods so feel free to relocate.

    There are 24 individual tracks and that took a long time to do; I also missed one file and so had to go back in and get it. Is there an easy way to download all tracks at once?

    I use the Ipod MP4 format and have tried without success to download into a specific file. The download goes to an intermediate file in ITunes that I always have trouble finding and then I had to move the tracks to where I wanted them. Is there a way I can get them to a specific playlist destination in one go?

    Then, once I had the music where I wanted it, I then accessed the Find Info option and had to edit the info and add a lot of missing information (eg: date, track no, CD name etc.). Any advice on how to get that information in the right fields during the download.

    I'm using ITunes but don't yet actually have an IPod so burn a CD. Within ITunes the tracks play flawlessly but on the CD the ending and beginning of tracks suffers from the 2 sec between tracks. For example Nimrod continues without a break from the preceeding track in ITunes but not on my CD.

    Some of this may be operator error or it may be that's the way it is. If there are any answers out there I would appreciate your help.

    Hi John. Did you take the option at the bottom of the track list to 'Buy whole recording'? I can't quite remember the exact wording in the store.

    I think I understand what he's talking about. It isn't the purchasing of the tracks which is a problem it's the downloading. I just purchased 2 albums (including the Elgar) which had around 35 tracks in total. I have Getright installed so its not that bad but for anyone else its very difficult to keep track of whats been downloaded and what is outstanding. Just a little gripe but not even sure how to get round it. Possibly once you downloaded a track it greyed out or something.

    Yes, I did Carl. Once you do that it transfers all the tracks for downloading to my "Downloads Folder". From there you have to download each individual track. There is no "Select All" or similar feature to download all tracks in one step.

    There may be a way for you to tweak the product; there may be things that I can do too but just don't know how or don't know period.

    I want to keep this in's not a huge problem. The number of tracks on this CD illustrated a few things.

    WoB Tunes is a great way to buy music. Without it I would still be waiting for the CD and would have to pay at least $10.00 more per CD. It's fast and more affordable; not cheap but certainly less expensive :)

    I guess Doyen could had made Enigma Variations, and Severn Suite for that matter, one continuous track as several of the movements should flow naturally from one to another. On the other hand, there may well be customers who still wish to purchase selected tracks, Nimrod for example.
