    I recently purchased a new album in the iTunes Store and was in the process of downloading it. About half way through all the tracks the downloads appeared to stop. After much trying to get the downloads to resume I decided to remove the album and re-download it. Now I can't re-download. The songs that did not download the first time have since downloaded but the first set of sings that did download that I removed are showing as PURCHASED but there is no link or icon to tap on to get them to download again. Is this a bug in the new iOS or is there a trick to make this work? I've gone to the Purchased section in the iTunes Store app and look under the Not On This iPhone tab and they are not listed there. It's like the phone things they are there already.

    Classic case of the iTunes Store and Music app being an absolute mess and very confusing.

    If you go into the iTunes app, click your Apple ID at the bottom and click "view account." Scroll down and you'll find the "Hidden Purchases" section. From there, you can redownload the tracks.

    When you delete purchases from your library, they get marked as "hidden."

    I use this method all the time when pre-ordered albums don't want to download when they're released.
