    Default Wal Mart is not selling Chickenfoot. Hmmmmmm.

    I wonder if Wal Mart is in bed with Van Halen and selling Chickenfoot would be anticlimatic to their relations with the VH Brothers/management. Wasn't there a rumor last year of Wal Mart selling a DVD of the Van Halen 07-08 tour pretty dirt cheap?? Let's face it, the CD is selling pretty hot right now, and usually Wally world is all over that shit in a heartbeat. I personally have a hate/hate relationship with Wal Mart in that I hate going there but living in a podunk town that is the only place to go. To me it is odd that they are not selling it and was wondering if there could be anything to this. More and more bands are using Wal Mart as a exclusive merchandiser these days it seems and I thought it could be the case here as well. Personally, I don't give a shit about it really but it does seem mighty strange that walmart.com does know what chickenfoot is. What do you all think?

    I thought it was strange that Wal-Mart was not selling the new CF album. As for having something to do with VH, I doubt that it does.

    Guys-
    Chickenfoot is the only store you can get the CD and record at. They signed an exclusive deal with them.

    Chickenfoot is, as far as I know, a Best buy exclusive!

    I saw the new album a couple of days ago at Target. And judging by the size of the stack compared to other albums there, it looked like it was selling.

    I don't know what a being a store 'exclusive' means. Clearly it doesn't mean no one else can sell the CD. Maybe the store has exclusive rights for the first day weekend or week of a release.

    The Derek Trucks Band latest CD, Already Free, sold exclusively through Best Buy as well. However, it was also available at Wally world, Target, etc...From what I understand, the exclusive deal meant it was available at Best Buy sooner (I think by only a week or two) and included three bonus tracks not available on CD's sold at other locations. Great CD by the way.......

    I bought it at Target when it came out. Wouldn't call that a Best Buy exclusive.

    well I guess it all depends. I have seen exclusive albums ONLY sold at wal-mart....or target...or best buy. This however is not an exclusive and I never heard anything official say that it was. best buy is distributing the album so that's why they're advertising it the most.

    Wrongo! Maybe that may be true for big stores.

    I bought it last week at local indy big record store Newbury Comics last Friday. And for the bargain price of $9.99. Then I saw the Amazon download for $3.99, oh well. At least I have something to hold!
