For the record only JJ, UMG?s ?family? of Record Labels includes Island Def Jam Music Group......

http://www.universalmusic.com/overview


For a Music Publishing Group, UMG?s failure to release ?In the Flesh? as a companion to the audio CD, ?Utada the Best?, is evidence that UMG have all but lost touch with their core customer base, a clear missed opportunity, to not take advantage of ancillary revenue streams that U3 have already produced and monetized, is a compelling example of UMG short sightedness to purse ?a whole product package?....

From a commercial standpoint the business opportunity has now come and gone.......UMG must show the willingness to invest and take the chances as they arise, that's the real world message from a ?stakeholders? point of view....

Mr T decision to offer consumers ?In the Flesh? from iTunes will confirm this...

I think you're completely right. Although IDJ is owned by UMG, they're a separate company, and UMG's release of Utada the Best has nothing to do with IDJ, but a huge opportunity to sell more copies of UtB was completely lost when they failed to release the footage from In the Flesh in a bundle set or something (or maybe including a voucher to download it from iTunes?), which would've racked it up with as much anticipation as SCV2, making it more a profitable venture.

I personally think Utada the Best was just a cashcow riding on the anticipation of SINGLE COLLECTION VOL. 2, especially as Utada nor endorsed it, or was even aware at the start. And the fact they included a photo from a 5/6 year old single cover is just disastrous and shows they do not care for Utada.

do you guys think there's still a chance we get one of those "In the Flesh" gigs some time, somewhere?

btw is there a good/acceptable vid of the London gig (or some US concert) that can be downloaded (Youtube, Megaupload, some private blog..) ??

U3music will be selling a digital download of the show in the coming weeks or months

that's really disappointing, I mean it just goes to show that UMG only wants the money and i think that they were too reluctant to give hikki more of their time since her first english album didn't sell too well.
