Paul McCartney Archive Collection Rip-Off

A Cautionary Tale.

Just a word of warning to anyone considering purchasing any of the Paul McCartney Archive Collection sets . I recently purchased a copy of 'Wings at the Speed of Sound ' boxset online only to find that the download page no longer works . I contacted the seller ( who did their best ) , Paul McCartney's webmaster ( no reply , no help ) and Universal Music ( worse than useless ) who informed me that as this was an 'old item' ( released in 2014 ) and they are no longer supporting it ( so stop selling them then ! ) they were unwilling to supply a new link or set of download files .

So Im returning my WATSOS boxset for a refund and would strongly advise people to check before they buy as Universal Music are not honouring their own contents sheet as attached. Such a pity , as I already own 8 others in this series but that's it , no more for me . Paul McCartney deserves better , and so do we .

Very disappointing,

~M~

That is common actually. Disney blu-rays came with an online "Disney Vault" that is no longer supported. You can pretty much expect that online content isn't going to be supported after the first six months or so.

Are you downloading for the hi-res or just to have them in digital form? There’s nothing on the downloads that isn’t on the discs.
