Amazon Sound Samples REMOVED

From around 3pm this afternoon Amazon UK unilaterally decided, without any pre-warning whatsoever to my knowledge,  remove sound samples from their digital music buying platform. I thought it may be a temporary glitch, so called their customer services only to be told that sound samples are no longer available. I told them in no uncertain terms that I thought it was a rather foolish decision as why would someone buy new music, albums especially, without being able to sample it first. Customers will just go elsewhere. Let's see how long it takes them to discover this before they reinstate the samples!

If you are an artist/label/promoter or in any way involved with digital music sales on Amazon and disagree with this new 'policy' then I strongly urge you to complain to Amazon in the strongest terms as this may severely impact potential sales.
