    I`m in Ireland. I use a proxy delivery service as the shipping to Ireland is ludicrous too. Surely there must be a way to get it to the US cheap. Either that, or check Universal`s fake storefronts online. That`s what that TheSoundOfVinyl is (RecordStore.co.uk is the same deal. Retail outlets for Universal). Hope you can find some way!

    WTH? That's ridiculous. What a nasty surprise. I was halfway through checkout when I saw the shipping cost.

    They've had a couple box sets on sale for great prices until you check out the shipping cost to the US. They now have a US website but this box isn't on it: The Sound of Vinyl US

    What's really irritating is - does shipping a box like that to the US REALLY need to cost $100? Seems like they could offer a more reasonable option.

    UK shipping is £6.95 regardless of how many items you buy.

    Thanks. Any word on these pressings? Analogue? Any good?

    I'd assume they are digital, as for the pressings, Universal have used different plants, but my experience has been generally positive with the titles I have, for the money it's got to be worth a punt if you fancy it.

    Has anyone in the UK actually received any of these cheap box sets yet?

    My order arrived yesterday and I know a few other people who have received theirs, none of us ordered the Rainbow box though.

    Rainbow box arrived today. They actually packed it well too! (Previously, records were just thrown in a box with no packing materials etc. Someone, somewhere may have finally listened to me :)).

    good to know some people are getting them, I have one order showing processed and the other (with the rainbow box set) as pending, still no email confirming that the processed order has been dispatched yet

    Mine arrived today, well packaged and everything in order. Haven't listened to any of it yet. I got an email from Hermes (couriers) previous to delivery btw.

    I have two orders pending since 11th. They've cancelled my Clapton "I Still Do" super deluxe even though it was still available for purchase for a week after I put my order in.
