David Cook’s Analog Heart Pulled From Amazon

Hope you David Cook fans out there got a chance to download your copy of his pre-idol CD Analog Heart, ’cause it’s no longer available on Amazon. Go ahead and click the banner. The message you get is “Not Available.”

It looks like Roger Friedman’s article, posted Monday on the FOX website, has led to the album being pulled from Amazon. (Hello, Roger: David studied Chris Daughtry’s audition prior to his own audition before the judges–they aren’t actually buddies. And do your effing homework. David Cook isn’t the first Idol to sell a pre-Idol CD during a run on the show.)

Currently Carly Hennessy Smithson’s CD is still available on Amazon. Chris Sligh sold a CD through Amazon during last year’s competition, and Taylor Hicks sold his pre-Idol CD, Under the Radar through an independent record store in Birmingham.

Could it be that TPTB had the album pulled, because David’s CD was showing up on the Amazon rankings? Or that other media outlets were beginning to pick up the story? It’s not clear how many copies have been sold, but Amazon mp3 downloads only make up 2% of the total paid downloads in the US market. Hardly a “major” market, I’d say. Although Analog Heart was number #1, considering those stats, I can’t imagine it was burning up the sales charts. This CD has been available for awhile. If it violated the terms of his contract with AI, it would have been pulled months ago, one would think.

Friedman is a little late to the “ringer” controversy. It raged months ago, when it was discovered that Carly Smithson, Kristy Lee Cook and Michael Johns had honest-to-goodness major record deals before they auditioned for Idol. David Cook is considered a non-ringer in the controversy. The fact that he released an independent CD two years ago that’s now available on rinky-dink Amazon mp3 downloads hardly elevates him to ringer status in my book. Nice, Friedman–making a mountain out of a molehill.

The Idols comings and goings always have and always will be grist for the rumor mill (see: David Archuleta and his rumored stage daddy. That shiz can’t be easy for the kid as he tries to compete in this stress-filled contest), but it’s a little annoying to see something this innocuous blown up into a big deal. The upside of the CD being pulled–maybe the story will stop right here instead of growing legs.

    Heaven forbid anyone in America should succeed thanks to hard work and lucky breaks.

    The media just won’t quit on this poor guy. I hope it all translates into free publicity and much success for DC in the future.

    The media just wonà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t quit on this poor guy. I hope it all translates into free publicity and much success for DC in the future.

    I don’t believe DC is necessarily being singled out. Look at poor Archie and the controversy around his dad. That can’t be good for him as he tries to compete in this contest.

    Scandal seems to follow many of the Idols. It’s nothing new. Friedman’s article bugged me, because he got some things wrong, and left out important details.

    Maybe now that the CD has been pulled, it won’t blow up into some major controversy.

  • bigepaz

    Great post MJ. The press is always trying to stir up things up.

    but Amazon mp3 downloads only make up 2% of the total paid downloads in the US market.

    It’s absolutely ridiculous for DC’s album to get pulled from Amazon – especially with those stats.

  • baxter

    I guess I don’t understand how Carly’s cd is still for sale at Amazon, but DC’s gets pulled. So what if it was ranked. As you said MJ, it’s not like it was selling thousands and thousands of copies.

    Unfortunately, this is the DC media story for this week. Seriously, it’s something about him every week. Poor guy. Can’t catch a break.

  • Natasha

    If David could get through one week without some press-invented controversy it would be nice. Poor guy must be exhausted.

  • jailbelle

    Brooke’s is still there too. I wonder if David pulled it himself when he saw the brewing controversy. He would do something like that.

  • friedmanwearspantys

    Doesn’t suprise me.

    I guess I donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t understand how Carlyà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s cd is still for sale at Amazon, but DCà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s gets pulled. So what if it was ranked. As you said MJ, ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s not like it was selling thousands and thousands of copies.

    Unfortunately, this is the DC media story for this week. Seriously, ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s something about him every week. Poor guy. Canà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t catch a break.

    I’m thinking he’s caught a HUGE break. He’s now apparently the frontrunner in this contest with all the ups and downs that go with it. When he was back in the pack and David A.’s TCO status was building resentment in Idol fan land, he was under the radar. Now he’s in the spotlight, so it’s only fair, I think.

    DC or any of them having prior records out and available for purchase — be it on Amazon, iTunes, or on a website for the band — shouldn’t be an issue, but I guess Idol feels it is. They want to control the product of their cast whether it’s to even the playing field or to truly give the impression that they are finding and cultivating undiscovered talent. Most likely, they probably consider it it as a conflict of interest if the idol directly profits from previously released material while they are on the show.

    If DC has control over his record, he would probably directly profit from the sales. Carly’s CD situation is probably different as her former label owns that record and it’s doubtful she’s even seen a penny of profit from those sales. She may even be in debt to them in some way for some of the expenses involved in developing her and her material prior to the CD release.

    With regard to AI’s interests that are being conflicted, the whole itunes downloads bugs me in particular. There was a time were fans were able to easily access downloads for free thanks to the ingenuity of various fans who hosted the stuff on websites. Now, I suppose AI has a right to flex their proprietary muscle and restrict free and easy access to downloads. That’s fine. And sure there are still ways to rip recordings from the broadcasts without paying.

    In my opinion, the live recordings with diminished crowd noises are generally better and more interesting than the studio recordings because they have the advantage of the spontaneity and energy that can only be captured live. The studio versions, to me, are just a quick and dirty way for TPTB to make more money without much added value to the quality of the performance.

    I suppose that a competing Idol contestant with product currently for sale on Amazon cuts into that.

  • Nikki

    There you have it, folks. The de-pimping has begun.

  • wfowfowfo

    The difference is that David Cook’s cd is actually selling.

    And I agree with Nikki — maybe he’s flexed his muscles a bit over something he wanted to do and pissed them off? He’s not a baby, and has ideas on what he’d like to do with his career.

    Or, maybe Daddy Archie tattle-taled…

    Kidding, just kidding.

  • jpfan

    Why would “they” depimp Cook when he’s a favorite with major commercial appeal? Gee, you’d think they’d want Archie and Cookie to both sell since they’re signed up the wazoo.I guess “they” are not it to make money? I didn’t realize Cook’s name is on the album and it’s #1 showing was probably confusing the “slower” fans who may have thought he’d won and this was the official album.

    Untwist those “pantys” Cook fans. He’ll survive this horrific blow to his career.The only way I could see them turning on him is if he turns into a douche who decides to come up with a new genre of music. Then I agree, he’s in trouble. Let’s see Daughtry sells 4 million, yeah let’s turn on Cook, that makes sense in the current music biz.

  • http://www.myspace.com/swood1104 Sarah

    I bought my copy the day it mysteriously appeared. I didn’t know how long it would be up and I wasn’t taking chances.

    Friedmanà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s article bugged me, because he got some things wrong, and left out important details.

    Me too. I could not believe that he was putting that “article” up with so many factual errors in it. That REALLY annoyed me. Of course, who can count on the press to be accurate, anyway? The more I think about it, the more annoyed I get. So I really should just stop thinking about it. Heh.

    Maybe now that the CD has been pulled, it wonà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t blow up into some major controversy.

    I hope so. Or it could be the flip side of the coin – “oh he must have been doing something wrong, he’s in violation of his contract, kick him out now.” At least, that’s what his detractors will say because it came down so quickly after the “article” emerged.

    Nonetheless – he’s getting all this media attention because, as nomi said, he’s a frontrunner. Plain and simple. He’s gonna have to deal with “controversy” throughout his career. This is just a head start with the wolves.

    Also, I can see why Carly’s album is still up. It’s probably the decision of her former label – she probably doesn’t have a whole lot of say over it. Kristy is the one I’m curious about. Yeah, she’s off the show, but she’s still under contract. And her’s was not under a major label, but it is still up.

  • bambambam

    Consider the source. Friedman has all kinds of personal axes to grind and misses the Hedda Hopper era of make-or-break gossip and PR.

    It’s just a mistake, in my view. Whether it was David or 19 or BMG, taking down the album only ensures that it will be file-shared for free from today until the release of his post-Idol album, instead of being sold in some way that is measurable and benefits him.

    Welcome to the stupid record industry, David Cook! Where there’s a hit, there’s a writ!

  • http://www.myspace.com/swood1104 Sarah

    I suppose that a competing Idol contestant with product currently for sale on Amazon cuts into that.

    In any other case, I would agree with you. But, thanks to Rickey, we know that this is CLEARLY not the case with DCook. He’s had, what, 2 tracks now that have been #1 on the overall iTunes chart for a few days at at time?

    If anything, TPTB are making money off him thanks to these iTunes downloads, while I’d venture to guess that most people buying them have no idea that he has (had) previous stuff available elsewhere.

    I completely agree with that. I have a feeling TPTB are making a ton of money from the itunes downloads the contestants are recording. And, not in my wildest dreams do I believe that they are giving anything close to a fair share to the kids who are singing them.

    A few of these idols have created their own popularity, without the outrageous pimping that some contestants receive. Clearly, America wants to hear more of David Cook, and they want to because he’s had a string of really good performances. David C has created a lot of fan support on the strength of his talent, and that’s impressive. And, the so called journalist who wrote an article full of eroneous facts should STFU.

  • PrplDva

    All I have to say is, WTF???? Does not seem fair given the others are still available on Amazon.

  • Grammie Kari

    I think I preferred a concept that AI is finding and cultivating undiscovered talent, although I am not against having some preofessional experience.

    To me, DC and Taylor did not have a previous record contract, so this should not be a big deal. I am sure there are many singers who write, design, and produce their own CDs prior to being signed to a recording contract. They may decide in the end that they don’t want to deal with another creative artist.

    With regard to AIà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s interests that are being conflicted, the whole itunes downloads bugs me in particular.

    Just another way for AI to make more money off the contestants.

  • dancin

    i dont see why they had to pull it ..
    and leave the other ones there

    i’m not easy to please with this kind of music but david cook does it for me!

  • cheese

    I’m still trying to figure out how Analog Heart got on Amazon in the first place. I know David had to pull it from CD Baby and iTunes, and I don’t think it was on Amazon until about a month ago. I know a lot of us bought it right away thinking it would quickly disappear. Still, I remember Pray for the Soul of Betty reaching #1 on Amazon and it was never pulled.

    I don’t believe for one second that TPTB didn’t know it was there. They must have interns reading the boards and David’s fans have been talking about it for a month. As far as the other Idols go, I don’t think they can pull anything that an unrelated label wants to sell on Amazon. I wouldn’t be surprised if David pulled the CD himself just to get people to STFU, which will probably spawn a new line of attacks. “See, he knew he was breaking the rules!1!”

    I’m still more pissed about the attack slant of the Friedman article than the CD going poof.

  • Grammie Kari

    They may decide in the end that they donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t want to deal with another creative artist.

    This is in reference to American Idol not wanting another Taylor to win the title. Certainly, this may also be true of Blake. Yet, this quality attracts fans when the Idol (contestant) has a creative and unique approach to their music.

  • bean99

    I think it’s fair for them to pull David’s cd off Amazon but think Carly’s should be too. Perhaps it’s because she has no control over the record company. I notice hers is also at iTunes under Carly Hennessy. It’s the same with Michael’s cd with his former band, The Rising. He didn’t even know they had released the cd while he was on AI and seemed put out by it, probably because it was never released before. David’s is different because he must have been profiting from the sales.

    I don’t understand why this is an indication of the “depimping” of DC. The article was dumb but probably not widely read and even if it was, not likely to change any fans’ minds. I don’t think this will hurt him in the least.

  • Kirsten

    I guess I donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t understand how Carlyà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s cd is still for sale at Amazon,

    Nigel hasn’t figured out yet that Carly Smithson = Carly Hennessy?

    LOL. Yes, I know that they know and that she didn’t change her name until the later rounds.

    It is a little odd that DC’s album was pulled. Carly’s CD has been mentioned in a couple of news articles, so it’s not just that. It could be because it was selling well. It could be because it was not offered for sale on Amazon until after the competition began (it seems that you can continue to sell through channels you’ve established prior to the show).

    DC should have checked with his BFF CD who continued to sell his band’s album throughout the comptetition to find out how to circumvent the rules. LOL.

  • jpfan

    It makes sense that Cook’s album was pulled if it violated their rules according to Kirstin’s post. Probably something to do with money and some violation of his contract makes sense. They probably don’t want him making a dime they don’t get a piece of. It confirms my belief that he gets signed no matter where he finishes and TPTB have no interest in Brooke or Carly.

  • BluzGirl76

    Absolutely he will be signed no matter where he finishes. I think pure and simple his album was pulled because TPTB weren’t getting a dime from Analog Heart’s increasing sales and they just couldn’t have that. If it was a violation of contract or their rules, why weren’t Film’s & The Rising’s albums (Michael Johns) pulled while he was on the show? Or Brooke’s & Carly’s? Or Taylor’s during Season 5? I can see how Carly & Michael’s albums may have been an exception because they weren’t in charge of them, the record companies are/were. But the others . . .

    I think this will generate more interest in DC and make Analog Heart a hot item on E-bay for a while. And no I’m not selling a copy there, but I’m sure someone will!

  • littlepark

    You know, since the media made so much brou-haha over his brother last week, they KNOW his brother is dying. Can’t they just let him be, just let him sing, while he’s dealing with THAT? Yikes.

  • JP

    Amazon isn’t the only music dealer in town. Analog Heart can still be purchased here. But hurry! Who knows when it will be pulled.

  • fiferswife

    This is killing me, because I was stupid and waited to download it, and now it’s too late! I’m new at this, so it never occurred to me that it would be pulled from Amazon.

    Well, I suppose I’ll just have to wait till the show’s over. I’m sure it will be available then.

  • http://www.masterclasslady.com masterclasslady

    CDBaby.Com sends all of the tracks from their Indie clients over to Amazon for their MP3 site.

    This was probably “in the works” before David became famous on American Idol, as CDBaby artists were slowly being added to Amazon’s site in November 2007.

    I know this for a fact because I sell CDs through CDBaby.Com and my first CD became available on Amazon’s MP3 page in November 2007.

    I guess his sales were tipping the scales in the wrong direction – if you catch my drift. :lol_wp:

    Hey Masterclasslady- AH HA. Things are making a bit more sense now. Still don’t agree with it regarding the article on FOXnews. Thanks for the info.

  • nomi

    Still, I remember Pray for the Soul of Betty reaching #1 on Amazon and it was never pulled.

    Well, there was/is the conspiracy talk that the CD was able to be released because of a loophole in the contract, and that C’s exit was engineered as a consequence. Of course there’s also grassy knoll theorizing that his exit was used to draw heat away from the Paula/Corey Clark situation, and that he seemed to enjoy a pretty long leash with regard to what he could/say after the boot (including a CD listening party with 19E security personnel and Sony suits in attendance), so who knows?

    Seems like whatever the case, AI still hasn’t managed to close that particular loophole.

    I wouldnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t be surprised if David pulled the CD himself just to get people to STFU

    Well, the unicorn and rainbow kind of person that I am think that maybe the album has been pulled so TPTB can get their share of the Cookie. Perhaps they will distribute physical cds to brick and mortar stores after the show? *colored roses glasses firmly planted on nose*

    When this broke out yesterday, I was royally pissed. Mad even. I couldn’t believe how much crap Cook has had to deal with so far in this competition. Now I’m trying to see it differently… Who knows what really is going on… *scratches head*

    I can’t feel all that sorry for DC on this one. He’s still in the competition and getting press because he is one of the frontrunners.

  • sengels

    I wrote a (slightly threatening) email to FOX because I resent being a paying customer, when now it can only be downloaded illegally for free (except for that other place I that just now found out about here). Ok, well I threatened Class Action. I really don’t think it’s fair for it to be pulled now the paying customers of Amazon, drove it up to #1 and now everyone else has to scatter to find it. It is possible that I may have unleashed a sh*tstorm of sorts, if you saw the long list of people I sent my complaint to.

    Hmm, that’s very interesting to know. I think Amazon lists it as appearing in early December 2007, although many people swear it wasn’t there until some time in March because they searched for it earlier in the AI season. It really was just “discovered” by the fans about a month ago. Weird.

    I think you’ll find that FOX could care less. Actually, you should have addressed your letter to 19, the people who produce the show. But I can assure you–they don’t care either.

  • grayhound

    Maybe(?) it was pulled because it reflects a charting number (i.e., #1 in sales). Ryan has been mentioning in the past few weeks that the idol’s sales on iTunes will not reflect any sales numbers. I suppose they feel it is an unfair advantage to whoever is doing better than another.

    I would like to add that I find the removal of the CD from Amazon is just so patently unfair, when so many other idols, past and present, are not having the same issue. i.e, Taylor, Constantine, etc.

  • Michelle

    I donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t believe DC is necessarily being singled out. Look at poor Archie and the controversy around his dad. That canà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t be good for him as he tries to compete in this contest.

    Scandal seems to follow many of the Idols. Ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s nothing new. Friedmanà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s article bugged me, because he got some things wrong, and left out important details.

    What bothers me is that between the cover “controversy” and now this, there’s this insinuation that David C. is cheating his way through the competition. David A has had negative press too, but it’s about his dad and thus not so much his “fault”.

    Also I feel mad that Friedman’s crappy hit piece, inaccuracies and all, could actually have the power to get the album pulled. I suppose it’s possible that the timing is a coincidence…but somehow I don’t think so.

  • moody

    Nice of Friedman to take credit for the album’s removal:

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,352069,00.html#6

    It was there and now it isn’t.

    I told you Monday that “American Idol” contestant David Cook’s album “Analog Heart” was available for downloading on Amazon’s MP3 site. It was so popular that it rocketed to No. 1, beating Mariah Carey’s latest release.

    Tuesday, however, “Analog Heart” has been digitally removed. It’s gone. Although a link remains to see the album cover, the ability to download it has been removed from the site. Additionally, the audio snippets for each song have been removed as well.

    What remains are the 91 reviews from enthusiastic Cook fans who did download “Analog Heart” before “American Idol” had it pulled down. One can only wonder what’s gone on backstage with Cook and the “Idol” producers, particularly the folks at 19 Entertainment. Cook seemed to be doing an end run around his contract with the show and management group before the contest ended.

    ETA: Too bad he didn’t take the extra 24 hours between articles to do some research and correct his mistakes, or at least point out the others who have albums for sale.

  • Natasha

    I agree with Michelle. First they imply he’s “cheating” by doing covers – which everyone on the show does. Now they imply he’s a pro and that it’s unfair for him to be in the competition against a bunch of amateurs. All he has is a self-produced CD while others in the competition had major record deals. They could hardly be called amateurs. But that’s the impression the Friedman article created.

  • http://americanidollowdown.blogspot.com/ Sherry L

    I agree with those who are saying Cook pulled the album himself. That’s what I think too.

    That Fox article made me angry because, as MJ pointed out, there are many factual errors.

    Saying “he already has an album out” and that it’s “on the charts.” And that’s only a couple of them. Ridiculous. And MJ is right, he doesn’t care.

    I also posted a blog trying to correct the things Friedman wrote, but it’s hard to get around the major news networks. I have a feeling I’ll overhear some people in my office talking about him being a cheater or something like that. It always happens when stories like this come out.

    Very frustrating. I’m sure it will blow over though. It’s probably better to pull the album for the remainder of the competition and just focus on that.

  • SpenserJ

    Cook seemed to be doing an end run around his contract with the show and management group before the contest ended.

    I told you Monday that à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“American Idolà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  contestant David Cookà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s album à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Analog Heartà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  was available for downloading on Amazonà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s MP3 site. It was so popular that it rocketed to No. 1, beating Mariah Careyà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s latest release.

    This statement is ridiculous Analog heart was only available at Amazon digital downloads. People who are buying Mariah’s newest are either buying the CD or downloading it at iTUNES. NO WAY was Analog Heart outselling Mariah Carey. That’s a misleading and ridiculous statement.

    And the business about making an end run around 19. Believe me, nobody makes an “end run” against those guys. They make it their business to know everything that’s going on. Last year, less than 24 hours after I posted some spoilers, one of their lawyers left a message on my home phone. 19 has known about Analog Heart from day one, no doubt.

    Friedman has pissed me off before. Particularly with his Clive ass-kissing in the Kelly Clarkson affair. It was so obvious he was taking his marching orders from somewhere.

  • Colleen

    Lucky for me, I just bought my Analog Heart download yesterday, right before it was pulled. This is so frustrating to see the CD pulled and I also wonder why.
    As a HUGE David Cook and AI fan, I know exactly how I plan to channel my frustrations.
    By VOTING for David Cook Large and Loud tonight!!

    Here’s hoping David is also able to channel his frustrations into his Andrew Lloyd Webber performance tonight and knock it out of the ballpark once again!
    This could be an excellent opportunity for our favorite AI Rocker to reach down and pull out another winning performance.
    Movie directors are known for pulling out performances by creating difficult scenarios for their actors to deal with.
    What this rising star has shown us over and over again that he has the ability to transform a song and own it.

    So take this little setback and turn it into something incredible David!

    Get your dialing fingers ready fans. If you want to voice your opinion so it is heard by David and TPTB at AI, Vote like crazy tonight.

    Pick up the phone tonight and Vote for David Cook EARLY, right after the phone lines open. Repeat and continue to Repeat for the next 2 hours!!
    By voting early, you can assure David Cook gets the front runner position on dialidol.com, which uses the busy signal to accurately predict the winners.

    Also, you can quickly check dialidol.com for preliminary AI stats right after the voting begins. Last week, David Cook was listed as being #1 on this site, just minutes after the voting began. The numbers changed a little later that evening and also adjusted the following day. David A’s numbers went down and David Cook’s numbers increased. David established an early lead and continued to build momentum as the phone votes continued to grow.

    Good Luck tonight Cookie.
    Ready, Set, DIAL! :clap_tb:

  • cookiefan22

    I just found this I’ve been wondering why Analog Heart got pulled and who pulled it. I wish he release it -it’s so good. I love the way HE writes-the words he chooses are perfect! I have all the songs form Analog Heart but I wish the “not yet” Cook fans would get to hear them!
