I am just curious if anyone has any idea why this happens? Some recent examples that I've come across. The new Elton John various artists tributes, which do NOT include download codes here in the US, but are included overseas. Elton's reissues from last year did not include download codes here in the US. The new Love Unlimited compilation. The Bobbie Gentry "Live At the BBC" album. I like to have a digital counterpart of my vinyl collection, so it's frustrating.
