    I really love this one. The blue on Tug of War is probably my second favorite. I’m very pleased with the quality on all of them.

    Very literally one of my favorite colors, on one of my favorite records.

    I need this. Even if I don’t get any of the others, I need this.

    I had a pretty good experience ordering these. Well, I only got 4 of them (so far)- RAM, Band on the Run, Venus & Mars and At the Speed of Sound. I wasn't going to buy any of them, but I caved after reading this thread. Ack! :D

    I placed my order for these from UDiscoverUS on Wednesday night Nov.22nd. The order was shipped on Tuesday Nov. 28th (from UMG in Wisconsin, UPS Ground) and was delivered on Friday Dec. 1st.

    They used those special record boxes that you can get Amazon to use if you check the box for the special Amazon box. And they put 2 records in each one, so two separate boxes. Both arrived in perfect condition at the same time.

    I'm sorry some of you haven't got yours yet, hopefully soon!

    Absolutely yes it matches the colour bar. Of the coloured vinyl albums the blue one is my favourite colour. Perhaps in the future we could all choose our own colours for records we buy.

    Regarding the UK I do not believe the colored vinyl versions were available outside of the Universal sites.

    Actually, in all honesty, the LAST thing I'd want is for you Brits to start adopting US methods of ... wait for it ... behaviour. :wave:

    It almost seems like if you ordered early on, you are penalized for it. Soundstagedirect has had my money since October 7th. Mazzy's crickets are more than I'm hearing. But, I will continue to wait.........

  18. December 5th afternoon: I JUST got this update that actually tells me nothing. :tiphat:

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your reply! Our apologies for any confusion. Please be assured that we did not intend to mislead you in regards to the shipping timeline for your order.

    We have just contacted our warehouse regarding your order and will be back in touch with an update as soon as possible. Our apologies for any inconvenience!

    Feel free to contact us with any additional questions or concerns in the meantime.

    Thank you for your patience and support,
    Hayley + FH Customer Help

    She was responding to my last email sent December 1st:

    Since I haven’t got any specific updated shipping date, I was last told they would ship the week of November 20th (it didn’t happen). I really need these by December 10th as these are gifts for Hannukah which is December 12th this year.

    Please advise.

    Thank you,

  20. Yup. “They didn’t intend to mislead me.”

    Just twice told me dates they would ship by.

    Oh well. It’s almost cocktail time. :tiphat:

    If you want the LPs by Hanukkah, you will need to call in reinforcements:

  22. I just replied and requested the phone number for the warehouse so I could call the warehouse myself since I own my own phone. :tiphat:

    I picked up all the colored vinyl (other than Pipes of Peace, didn't have that one) from my local record store yesterday. Had about $50 in store credit so got a pretty decent price out the door. I hadn't really heard any of these McCartney reissues before now, from what I've heard so far, they sound great. And yeah the colored vinyl looks nice too lol.
