Wings "Best Buy" singles

"Let'Em In" and "Letting Go" singles - a Best Buy exclusive.
Looks like there was a change of heart about which singles that the "Best Buy" chain of stores provided us with. Originally, the "Venus and Mars"/"Rockshow" single was announced to be the exclusive bonus item for purchasers of the "Venus and Mars" album, this has now been changed to "Letting Go".
The singles look like their seventies US counterparts, but they have been stripped of record company logos.

You'll have to pay $4.25 each for shipping on the singles. Approximately 5,000 of each single were pressed, so supply is limited. If you're checking out your local "Best Buy" for this offer, look for a sticker on the CD sleeve announcing the bonus single. Only the CDs with the sticker are the ones which will get you these singles.

The originals
Meanwhile, Paul McCartney has released another free download from his past, a hitherto unheard little ditty from the 1974 "One Hand Clapping" sessions, called "Love My Baby", accessible from paulmccartney.com/downloads. The song is not part of any of these new archive releases.

Should have had these singles at the stores. I'm not paying $4.50 per single when I already have the songs!
Bestbuy fails again!

Hey Roger,
As far as I can tell, neither of the free singles were originally released in the US in the picture sleeves they're using. Like they did for the McCartney "Another Day" 7" reissue for Record Store Day a couple years ago, they're using pic sleeves that came out in other countries. Both sleeves are adapted from the original German releases. (See 45cat.com's McCartney page.)

other kthroupaI tried to order mine last night and the site did not work. I spent 30 minutes on the phone with best buy and got no resolution. I'm still waiting on a call back.
$4.25 ea. is a JOKE!
Do you think they are making a profit on the "Free" bonus singles?
Macca should step in and offer them to his fans through his own site!
