When the website was up was this released at hi-rez format then? I thought I had it but can't find it.

Nope. Lossless was released exclusively here:

and it was only 16/44. There were promo CD-R's which were 16/44, of course. The vinyl came with MP3 download cards.

Thanks. Were those MP3 files 320 kbps and 44.1kHz?

I believe only the original EP was 24 bit if you paid $2 for an upgrade (still have my OG files somewhere), and then the album download. Everything else is standard CD red book (44/16).

Actually, the Qobuz UK store has a 19 track version of Welcome Oblivion that includes the original EP as bonus tracks in 24/96 for 11.99, but this is not available in the US store...

I stand corrected! This is good info to know and yet another reason I’m pissed that I can’t figure out how to successfully purchase from the UK Qobuz store in the US.

I had a UK friend create an account on the Qobuz UK site for me that I just took over and use my own PayPal with. I don't need a VPN or anything.

When creating an account, you may need a VPN initially, but, more importantly, a UK address to enter when signing up. Once the account is created, you won't need to use a VPN.

Thanks for this info! I feel like I did this when I signed up (UK university e-mail address I attended with place I staying then) but obviously something went wrong, probably on the VPN end of things. Good to know it can be done, though. Something to dig back into.
