    Found everything but RAM at my local. Ordered RAM off of Udiscover on Sunday, got tracking number today. Can’t believe older orders aren’t getting fulfilled. What gives!?

    Mazzy I rec'd a very similar email from Udiscover this morning as a response to my inquiry from last Friday (11/24.) This evening I rec'd a notice that my order has shipped. I'll believe it when I see it, and that they got the order correct, but I feel like some progress was made today. Hope there's a light at the end of the tunnel for you.

    I just wrote uDiscover a concerned email as well. Told them folks are ordering this and getting shipping already. I ordered and paid in October. Maybe I should start looking local. I find it bizarre that the for these "limited editions", everyone is getting them but the people who ordered on the presale date from the actual source. I will never preorder from uDiscover again.

    I also spoke to SoundStageDirect who said my order is still "processing" because they haven't received these from the supplier yet. They also said the supplier is not very responsive to requests. Sound familiar?

    Trying not to feel jealous of the lovely vinyls in Mazzy's pics... :(

    And I don't even play vinyl! Haven't hooked up my turntable in 15 years! In fact I think my few remaining LPs (Twin Freaks! McCartney Interview! Electric Arguments! In Rainbows!) are in my office somewhere and not at home at all! But those McCartney reissues look pretty nice and I feel a wash of nostalgia come over me when I see the right-sized artwork on those LPs... Ah well. I really do prefer CDs for a thousand reasons, but the artwork, well, that was a special thing in the LP era. Good times.

    So I found Pipes of Peace at a different store today to round out the colored vinyl collection and I'm sorry if this has been brought up already, but is anyone else's copy, I don't know how to describe it really....a bit discolored? I mean it is Silver but also all around it it's like there are shades of black mixed in. I have no idea if it will effect playback or not but it's definitely noticeable visually.

    Haven't seen that one yet but it is common to have other colors in some colored vinyl...

    Yeah I thought that might be the case, just wanted to ask.

    Listening to it now, sounds good to me.

    Silver and gold vinyl colouring is usually very hard to get right.
    The ones I have are all shwishy/swirly in the colouring - Pipes Of Peace being the same.
    The other releases in the set are much better looking.

    I received a shipping notification last night at approx. 9:30pm eastern time from UDiscover. No tracking information? Has anyone seen this from them. I assumed that I would get a tracking number or something. Mazzy, did you get an email?

    I did receive a shipping notice from UDiscover last week, when mine was shipped, but no tracking number. I got an email from UPS with a tracking number the day before it was delivered, but that's because I'm signed up with UPS to receive notifications. :tiphat:

    I have not received shipping information.
    However, my order on UDiscover has changed from "Processing" to "Complete"
    Dare I dream?
    BTW, I ordered this on 10/6/17

    I got my first three from Udiscover with no hassles. Ordered the yellow RAM on the weekend and got a shipping confirmation on 5 December.

    What is the attraction on these colored vinyls.
    I can’t understand why there is such panic to get these nothing new on them.

    My set is due to arrive today but I'm not holding my breath. Udiscover emailed me asking for feedback on their customer service.:laugh: Yeah, I'm going to take some time to answer this request in a very clear and succinct matter.:cussing: I'm planning to include the negative feedback they are getting here, a group of people who spend lots of money on physical product. Good luck to all.

    "shwishy/swirly" is most definitely a good way of describing it, much better than what I did! That's exactly what it is, thanks for the information on silver/gold.

    On a different note I also listened to Band on the Run last night and I know I'm not breaking any news here or anything but man that is a such a good album.

    I ordered Flowers in the Dirt from Amazon yesterday and will probably order Wings Over America soon to round out the collection....but now of course the lunatic in me is wishing they were colored too lol. Oh well.

    It's called Obsessive Collecting Disorder

    A person with OCD generally:
    • Can't control his or her thoughts or behaviors, even when those thoughts or behaviors are recognized as excessive
    • Spends significant $$$ on these thoughts or behaviors
    • May feel brief relief from the anxiety the thoughts cause once their collection is momentarily complete
    • Experiences significant problems with their spouse due to these thoughts or behaviors
