    I still have not gotten it. What's really insane is that I bet it's going to be routed to Portland before it gets shipped down the 110 miles south in order to get to Eugene.

    Tuesday morning in Oslo. According to the DHL tracking website, my shipment is still in Germany, where it has been since Saturday 1:15 PM. The Norwegian DHL tracking site still says

    Sporingsfeil [Tracking error]
    • GM2953xxxxx191400 (Not found): No result found for your DHL query. Please try again

    Now that I have good news, I feel kinda like I'm rubbing it in the faces of those who don't have good news yet. (Sorry :() Confirmed: scanned in Nashville, and being delivered today. I'll probably get it around noon.

    For any price paid the discs should have some protection. I've been railing against this since these silly joey pouches in books were introduced. Bob never listens...

    My Disc 3 of Tell Tale Signs was scratched when it was first removed from the slot. My dealer was notoriously bad about returns and the limited edition was in short supply very soon.

    In an effort to show balance I would like to report that the full refund offered by Sandbag has been credited in the time period they specified so I would like to thank them for that on this forum.

    I feel that I can now move on and will crack open the shrinkwrap on San Diego tonight! Let us hope that after all that has happened it does no disappoint. If it is revelatory as the rest of the set I am sure that it will not.

    Hope everyone here is now making progress. It has seemed like we have all been tested in some way over the last week or two. Did I misremember things? Buying music is supposed to be a fun and uplifting experience.

    You got a full refund AND the full items? How?

    I'm happy to say that it was here this morning at the office when I arrived! In good shape with bonus disks. Some light scratches on disks 1, 3, and 5, but they don't look like they'll affect playback (we'll see later). I'm so delighted to finally have this!

    A long story of which some is in earlier posts. It took me three pages of type to complain ultimately but in essence the package arrived late and damaged and I had to track it down and collect it. They wanted me to send the item back but admitted that there would be a delay as they had no stock to replace it. They then offered to cancel my order with me to keep the damaged item which I did.

    One amusing note: even though the package has now been delivered, the DHL tracking site still says it's been tendered to the delivery service provider in Raleigh, NC and the USPS tracking site says its still "on its way" to them. Clueless system!

    I've seen what looks like a scratch on the top surface of a couple of discs, but it actually appears to be paper or something stuck to the disc.

    Finally!
    Got it in my hands!
    The box set is a thing of beauty.


    It took Canada Post 4 days to "process" the item.....the good news, they didn't charge me duty/taxes.

    Mine arrived. Was packed well. Corners a bit less-than-sharp, but I'm not mad about it. Some tiny scratches on the DVD, but I don't think it'll be a problem.

    I'm out. Cancelled my order today that I made on release day. At this stage I was not sure when or even IF I would ever get the set from them. They said they will process within 24 hours. Would have liked to get San Diego (my home town) but I can live without it. Will purchase box from amazon.

    still not received either. The automobile driving time from Houston to my door is estimated at 26 hours. Seven times that now, and no indication at all.

    Ask them for a copy. It was after all free so they will not lose out and basically they have not at this stage fulfilled your order. After nearly two weeks and hearing about people just picking it up off the shelf they really cannot expect you to sit there indefinitely waiting. We all ordered in good faith and have not really been well served. They must realise that they have made a mess of this even if they won't admit to it.

    Well, I guess I’m a big boy now, and I can advance to the next thread, as mine finally arrived today. I will miss you all,
    and your comments that allowed us all to relate to each other’s unenviable plights. I concur, I feel so drained on all levels that the arrival is anything but exciting. Though the music maybe at some point therapeutic, I have no desire to hear it just now. In short, compared to my 2nd and 3rd divorces, I’ll take another divorce. This has been the most absolute worst experience I have ever had a consumer of recorded media. Oh, and by the way - being a perfectionist, usually receiving an item in less than mint condition throws me into a temper tantrum- the item arrived with damaged corners but, at this stage of the game, who cares? A very low point filled with chagrin and dismay that should have been a celebratory and relished moment in time.

    “... just like Dylan’s mr. Jones...even hate my rock and roll...ooh girl you know the reason why.”

    Wow! My household has never received anything from DHL that didn't get duty/taxes (DVDs from Japan and Bruce Spizer Beatles books years ago). Somebody a few pages back did get dinged so there's a 50/50 chance. I think mine has finally left Mississauga and I have a delivery estimate of Nov. 20 according to the Canada Post site. Waiting for the other shoe to drop...

    My order showed up yesterday, and I've finally listened to all of Disc 1 (I plan to take my time with this set).

    That said, I still have a close, emotional connection to this thread (survivor's guilt?), so I don't plan to "graduate" to the other thread until a lot more people have theirs in hand!
