We're pleased to say
that in addition to our whole catalogue being available to download directly from this site, we now include the original sleevenotes with each downloaded album.It's taken us quite a while
to do this, but Temple Records and the artists on the label have always spent a long time preparing album sleevenotes. These notes contain lots of information about the tunes, songs and musicians, and we view this as a really valuable part of the package when you buy an album; something that can often get overlooked with the downloading experience.Our price is still better than itunes
and their ilk, the sleevenotes are included, plus you've got the bonus of knowing that you're buying direct, which allows a small label like us to keep releasing records of these great traditional musicians. Have a browse through the catalogue at www.templerecords.co.uk/digitaldownloads
If you've previously bought a download from us that didn't have notes included, and you'd like to get hold of them, just drop us an email; we'll send them along to you.
We've just created sleevenotes for our free downloadable sampler, which features a selection of great tracks from our catalogue, and these notes will now be included in the folder when you download the music.
The sampler features tracks from: Alison Kinnaird, Christine Primrose, Peter Nardini, Sean McAloon, Dr Angus MacDonald and Battlefield Band members Alasdair White & Mike Katz and you can find it here: www.templerecords.co.uk/free-sampler
If you've already downloaded the sampler without sleevenotes, you can access the sleevenotes only by clicking the PDF below and printing or saving them.
All albums now downloadable
We've been working hard on our new website, and we're pleased to say that we've now made every album in our catalogue available to download directly from our website. The price is better than itunes et al, plus you've got the bonus of knowing that you're buying direct from the source, which allows a small label like us to keep releasing records of these great traditional musicians. Have a browse through the catalogue at www.templerecords.co.uk/digitaldownloadsSleevenotes
In addition, we're working away in the background to make all the sleevenotes available with our downloads. Temple Records and the artists on the label have always spent a long time preparing album sleevenotes, which contain lots of information about the tunes and songs, and we view this as an important part of the package when you buy an album. At the moment around 25% of the downloads include sleevenotes and we're aiming to make this 100% as soon as we can. In the meantime, if you buy a download from us that doesn't have notes included, and you'd like to get hold of them, just drop us an email
; we'll bring those notes to the front of the queue and we'll send them along as soon as they're available.Audio format
All the downloadable albums are currently available in good quality 320kbps mp3 files, and we're working on adding a lossless FLAC alternative for people who prefer this format. As with sleevenotes, if there's any album you'd like to get hold of in FLAC format right now, just let us know by email
and we'll bump it up the queue.
