Universal has updated mikeoldfield.com / tubularbells2009.com to include a buy link for registering interest in the Tubular Bells Ultimate Edition.

Having had a look at someone else's confirmation email, I think it probably is a different list to the other one (at least it is if I've interpreted the structure of the URL in the email correctly). So...all I can say is sign up and see what happens...why people aren't getting confirmation emails (mentioned in another topic), I don't know.

I got the confirmation email with the earlier sign-up when the tubularbells2009-site had just appeared. Now that registered via the Buy-link, I also haven't received any confirmation email...  :/

I guess they sold out already  :p

I'm fairly certain that mikeoldfield.co.uk is a typo - that looks like a domain squatter's site to me. Whoever owns it is no doubt laughing right now...

The welcome message after you reply to the confirmation email is identical to the old MOTS one on mike olfield.com

If you've already registered using the 'Sign Up' link, it looks like you need to use a different e-mail address for this one, otherwise you don't receive the confirmation e-mail. That said, the confirmation e-mail is identical to the first one, so if you've already used the 'Sign Up' link I'm not sure if you really need to register again.

Thank-you for helping us help you help us all.

So... by reading the various postings on this and the other similar subject lines it seems that 95% of registrations are 'failing' (or at least not being acknowledged). Does anybody here at Tubular.net have contacts with the folks behind the website or the record company? Give them a heads up about this. It's seriously pi***ng off Mike's most dedicated fans... :(

We have been promised a wonderful Tubular Summer - but with this rather amateur website and terrible data collection with the expression of interest form,  I've been left feeling we've been let down. I've seen this again and again being an Oldfield fan since the '70's - it's a case of sod the fans, we just want their cash. I had hoped that a move away from Virgin would change all that...... but nope!

Tubular.net is the best thing ever to enter the world of the Oldfield fan - why? Easy... it's run by fans for fans.. Just think what could happen if just one real Oldfield fan was put in charge of the TB project......

SORRY for the rant!!  Hey, I feel better already!

Oops, didn't noticed this topic. Like I said in the other topic I really think it's the same list as the Universal one.

Another email address indeed works, but you get the same email address as the Universal mailing list.

And lookie here... the tubularbells2009.com website suddenly has a Nissan banner! Ads, ads, ads....

Amen to that. It all looks like (sub)standard corporate marketing, don't it? Just another day at the office from Universal's point of view, no real enthusiasm or passion about any of it.

It does make me feel nostalgic for the time when MO's website was actually under his (and Fanny's) control. Okay so the forum he tried to set up sadly went into meltdown rather quickly, but the whole Music VR era and the promise of auctions and exclusive collectables and whatnot was quite exciting for a while! Too bad it couldn't have continued along the same lines - still thank goodness for tubular.net  :D
