LPs with mp3 coupons (and free CDs)

 
  • LPs with mp3 coupons (and free CDs)

    Since there's a topic on scrobbling LPs, I figured it might be handy to have an overview on LPs that come with a download coupon or free CD. So if you have any of those, feel free to add them.

    *Note* When adding a record, please remember to mention wether it comes with a coupon or a CD. Also an extra thank you to the members that provide links to the album/label in question.

    I saw in a store a while ago a Lamb of God LP with a sticker that said it has a download coupon, but overall they're quite rare. But in my opinion it's a great idea, since nowadays 95% of my time I listen to either mp3 or vinyl. CD is going to disappear, but LP is going to stay due to collectors.

    Hmm, they're probably rare now, but my impression is that their numbers will be growing in the coming months and years.

    my copy of Mastodon's Crack the Skye came with a free CD copy of it

  • I bought a vinyl copy of the Nadja/A Storm of Light split from aSoL at one of their shows recently, and they included a copy of the CD, which I thought was pretty cool. CDs are REALLY cheap to press, so it doesn't cost them much extra to give you a copy of the CD - not when you're paying for costly vinyl.

  • mad ordered some vinyl from relapse recently and got hooked up with the new coalesce and it came with a download card,

  • Pretty much all the vinyl released by Saddle Creek Records (Cursive, Bright Eyes, The Faint, Tokyo Police Club, The Rural Alberta Advantage) comes witha download card.

  • Jason Lytle - Yours Truly, The Commuter
    Cat Power - Moon Pix

  • Updated the list in the first post.

  • I bought a vinyl copy of "The Fray" by The Fray that came with a free MP3 coupon and a vinyl copy of "The Airborne Toxic Event" by The Airborne Toxic Event that came with a free CD copy

  • Black Dice - Repo - download voucher
    Low - Drums and Guns - download voucher
    MGMT - Metanoia - download voucher
    Four Tet - Everything Ecstatic - free CD version

    And much love to Saddlecreek - who were mentioned a few times already!

    I have come across one online record shop which gives you the free mp3 when you buy on vinyl too - but can not find it now - great idea and would love to see actual record shops going with this too.

  • Bruce Sprtinsteen- Working on the Dream
    MP3 Full Album Download + LP
    Working on a Dream

  • Screen Vinyl Image's Interceptors comes with a CD version with a bonus track.

    It would be great if you could find that store. :-)

  • Why not rip your own vinyl instead? Turntables are relatively cheap and can be connected to a computer via USB these days. I rarely play my vinyl as they wear away over play, unlike CDs which lose their electro-magnetic charge and degrade over time. That way you can have the satisfaction of knowing you are listening to YOUR record, not some downloaded mp3's. And what are these bit-rates? You can rip your own at 320kbps if need be.

    And whoever said CDs are dead, I think you are a little crazy in saying that.

    I only listen to new Cradel of Filth and Dimmu albums, gotta stay trve
  • i bought a few records off the sub pop website a while ago and they were quite good with giving download codes. the singles club also gives you a download of the single.

  • Update on that online store that gives you mp3s;

    http://www.civilmusic.com - got the link from the ghostbox record label newsletter - quick shout out to Ghost Box for being ace.

    Civil Music is more dubstep, dance orientated and there's not much stuff there at the mnute! But free mp3's with vinyl records is the future!

    interpol - our love to admire had the free cd - plus 7inch as well

  • I second that SubPop records (Iron & Wine) includes download coupons, and I also got one with a box set of Smiths 7" singles from Rhino.

    The new Depeche Mode LP included a free CD.
