Fans have control over album costs
On 30 October 2007, before releasing the CD version of Love... the Album, EMI and the Cliff Richard Organisation decided that for 2 weeks, if there is a high enough demand for the digital download version of the album (which was 400 copies), then the price will drop from £7.99 to £3.99. For each album being downloaded, the price of the album drops by 1 pence.
During the two-week period, Richard said:
On 8 November 2007, it was announced that the £3.99 price tag for the album has been secured and that all people who have downloaded it during the two-week period would all pay £3.99 instead of the original price. All copies downloaded contributed to the first week of the UK Albums Chart.
Studio or Compilation album?
Fans have been divided into whether this album was a studio or compilation album as 10 of the 15 tracks were previously released from Cliff Richard from other albums. On 5 December 2007, Cliff admitted on The Paul O'Grady Show that it was "unfair" to release the same music more than once.
