Where are the old B side MP3s

So I found the list of all the songs under "music/video" and many of them will let you stream the song on the website. Problem is I cant find where to buy most of the old B-sides, and there's a good handful that I don't yet own.

I remember buying and downloading MP3s on muse.mu about 4-5 years ago, but now that option doesn't seem to exist anymore, unless I am missing something. Can someone help me out? I want to buy the B sides I don't have (preferably 320kbps) and don't want to resort to some illegal MP3 downloading site. I suppose I could look for CDs to buy but wondering what happened to the MP3 downloads on muse.mu

thanks for any help

I think you might find most of them on Amazon, no idea what happened to them on the muse shop.

(example: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pink-Ego-Box/dp/B002CTU3AY)

Sadly, they took them down for some reason, when they did the shop update. I got an email saying it was intentional and not a bug, but no explanation or help other than that.
I was quite upset about it, as I'd bought like $75 worth of stuff at one point, lost it when my HDD crashed, and couldn't redownload.

US iTunes and Amazon don't have them, and I wasn't able to buy digital items from the UK Amazon, but there's probably a way around it, I would assume.

It's a shame there's no proper download place - rather forces you to go for illegal routes

I felt justified since I'd already paid for them... And managed to get myself a root key virus in the process.

Their index of b-sides is still there but none of the links work.

Maybe they'll surface on a 25th anniversary edition of Showbiz, one day.

Thanks, I will check amazon, but if I cant find everything there....then I guess they have forced me to other means. I'd say if you don't want illegal downloads from loyal fans, then provide a place to actually buy the music one way or another, I will get what I need, this is Muse, and it is necessary

I don't think multi-million-selling stadium rock combo Muse would worry too much if you yoinked a couple of ancient tracks from... some place They didn't even give that much of a shit in 2001 tbh

It's not Muse though, its Warner, they freak out if someone thinks about misusing their copyrighted property lol

But I dont care about Warner, I'm not a pirate, I'm one who simply requires Muse.
