rob0319 posted this on AG, but the thread quickly fell off page 1, so here's the scoop in case you missed it:

Best Buy has Already Free on sale for pre-order at $9.99, with free shipping (at least for now), and claims a Best Buy exclusive of three additional studio tracks.

Click on the link to the weekly circular and go to page 16, where the album is listed. Click on the picture and it brings pop-up box stating "3 exclusive studio tracks". It sounds similar to "bonus"l ive tracks that were distributed with Songlines, and also the Crossroads DVD. I guess these would be included as a separate disc, or at least I hope so.

do you have to buy through the best buy pre-sale to get the bonus tracks... or can you pick it up Tuesday in the store and get them?

Best Buy bonus tracks:

1. Ballad of the Chicken Robber
2. Swamp Raga
3. Long Time Man

iTunes bonus track:

1. Goin' Home

These are all studio tracks, rather than live tracks.


I gotta be honest, I'm not real thrilled with this. I try and support Hittin the Note and don't worry about the $$$ but $10 more and 3 less tunes is not what I counted on. The autographed insert is cool and all but I'd rather have the music.

As is usual on this site, everyone will be talking about how great the three extra tracks are and I'll go buy the darn thing again

Derek's autograph or three tracks that you will hear better live than a studio

Fulltone, all the above info on bonus tracks comes from DTB management.

Also I'll just point out quickly that Best Buy, simply because of their size and relationship with the band's record label, can negotiate more stuff like bonus tracks than HTN can.

But, HTN, because of their (lesser) size, can offer the autographs and inserts and all that good stuff that Best Buy could never offer to the general public.

That's how I understand it anyway... Bottom line - bonus tracks or no bonus tracks, signed setlists or none, this album is simply awesome.




It is a great album and I'm not complaining about that. I don't even reallly mind shelling out another $10 for another copy. What I wish that is that I had known about the Best Buy bonus tracks beforehand.

As I said, I don't mind supporting HTN, but I preordered to get the CD early not to get an autograph. I'd have rather waited to get the bonus tracks but I didn't know that I had that "choice".

Sorry, couldn't locate link to the weekly circular on the Best Buy site. Does anyone have a link for this? Thanks so much. I really hope there are not 3 extra tracks available only at Best Buy. I would think that Derek has an exclusive contract with Best Buy that says that only they can sell the 3 extra tracks, but you know what, if you ordered the CD through HTN then you should get a special password that works just once to download the three extra tracks onto your computer. That way everybody is happy. I live in Japan so no Best Buy for me, I will be browsing Ebay.

Is it still possible to get the three bonus tracks from best buy? I would like the CD form but did I have to pre-order the album in order to get them? I really want to hear those

See my first two posts in this thread. It still shows $9.99, free shipping and best buy exclusive, IE the three extra tracks. I am sure the copies in the store will have the bonus tracks until this allocation is gone. I am sure it's a deal with Sony and Best Buy and not just for Derek Trucks. Derek (and management) probably has little say in the matter. Best Buy must commit to a large purchase or to sell at a low price, advertise the CD and get the extra tracks in return.

To be clear - if you purchase the CD AT the Best Buy store in person, not online, will that have the 3 bonus tracks?

Yes. I went to BB yesterday, in person, and picked it up. Three bonus tracks are included. The 6:31 minute bonus track "Swamp Raga" alone is worth the 9.99 price! Classic Derek.

I also picked up Susan's new one while there.

I was given the pre-sale as a birthday gift...I bought the Best Buy disc too. Roughly $26 for an autographed setilst, magazine (that I assume I will get sent to me yet), autographed liner notes, and three bonus songs...and the two cds.

Sweet deal.
