    My Utopia box has shipped. Flaming Lips box cancelled (actually, the order has been “disappeared” in an act of Stalinist revision, it’s not even showing up in my canceled orders list); I don’t really care, it was destined for eBay anyway.

    Cockney Rebel - Cavaliers (An Anthology 1973-1974) for €5,95 on Amazon Italy. Seems to be about four times as expensive elsewhere.

    There were two. A single "rarities" type disc and a box set. I didn't order the single one, since it didn't seem like that great a deal for one CD with the shipping.

    My Utiopia order was canceled because my credit card kept declining it as suspected fraud.

    Some cruel news from Italy, my last two outstanding bargain vinyl orders have been cancelled because of a pricing error, fair enough, but why leave it so long and even give me a shipping date raising false hope, at least two orders got through so I guess it was all worthwhile, but stringing me along for a few months leaves a slightly bitter taste.:cry:

    Card company should have called you to see if it was a legit charge. Guess you'll have to call them next time you place an international order.

    I did. I actually did have some overseas fraud so their fraud detection has been overly vigilant. I’ve had many overseas music purchases declined and declined again while I’m on the phone with them. This happens on sites I make purchases on multiple time a month over the last 3 or 4 years. Over the weekend my card got locked because I bought 5 albums on bandcamp. The require I upload pictures of my drivers license before the unlock it, which requires about a week.

    That sucks. I remember landing one of the ultra-rare Dylan copyright collections (1964, I think), only to have my credit card deny the charge as suspicious. I made them call up the vendor, with me on the line to apologize and make sure the order went thru. Thankfully the vendor was understanding!

    Fortunately, the Utopia was a total impulse purchase. I may have heard some of it back then but not that I remember. I've streamed some since I placed the order and I don't like a lot of it. I do really like some of it, but all of the albums have stuff I don't like. So it's not that great a loss for me.

  23. One of my credit cards pretty much flags every international purchase as "suspicious" and will block it if I don't call in. This is despite having placed dozens of international orders over the years on it. When they wouldn't fix this issue, I dropped the credit card for another one.

    I’m considering it. Also because I want a chip and pin card for traveling in the EU.
