    What's this about Kraftwerk? I'm off to look it up, I hope it's old recordings and not the current version which is too Karaokewerk for me :)

    The last line sounds like they are going to take their batons to the technical team.

    I ordered on the "second wave" too, meaning it said I was ordering Sgt. Pepper and got the email saying it was cancelling "The New Originals" so I emailed back asking what this "New Originals" order is and hey where is my Sgt. Pepper order.

    I am glad I did not cancel my Amazon.it order it will be shipped at 94.42 euro I have not checked to see if there are better deals out there in now.

    Yeah, I love Apple Pie too.

    I still wish it would go down. And it will eventually. Just like the mono CD box did.

    It's still the best deal, but I wonder if they are reviewing that as well. It was taken down and hasn't come back since.

    Yep. I'll buy the vinyl and wait for the deluxe set to drop under $50

    I bet you'll see it at that price (or at least within striking distance), by Xmas.

    Then it's not for you. They are live versions from the last couple of years.

    I did try to move away from this, and apologies to everyone who must be bored rigid with it, but:
    [A l'il bit of politics for you=] In the UK you don't just walk into another job any more, and the government is making the welfare system here unjustly punitive [as a delicious taster to removing it altogether, probably]. Either way, you'll get starved into submission. The employers call all the shots here now, as our country scrabbles for scraps from our new Chinese and Saudi overlords.[/thankyougoodnight]
    How's that for an answer? Not good enough for you, I bet.

    General point: I'm out of the Amazon.ca discussion now, thanks. Convincing a few blowhards that the fuss isn't just sour grapes coming from a bunch of scam artists griping about losing out on their Big Corporate Con, but rather about being branded as little better than criminals, is equal to hammering your skull against a brick wall.

    It may seem obvious to you that this is a "regular retailing tactic" by Amazon, but to many here, it seemed either a huge pricing error, a keypunch mistake, or something similar.

    There was one skeptic that mused it was Amazon's ploy to prevent them from pre-ordering elsewhere, but that logic falls through. (Since the release date is more than a month away, I'd speculate most of those buyers will now shop elsewhere.)

    Why would such a marketing tactic benefit Amazon?

    Conspiracy theorists are all the rage. Even in musical retailing I guess.

    Talk about off the rails.
    A simple pricing error devolves into Amazon being Darth Vader and an old filling in my molar starts tweaking from all of the tin-foil hats.
    Sometimes the Internet can be seriously disappointing.

    Only sometimes?

    Actually, this place does a pretty good job of staying away from fruit loop conspiracies, trolling and exchanges of heated insults compared to most other public sites I have seen.

    I expect their reputation for occasional drastically low pricing errors when listings are first put up for pre-order attracts a lot of visits to their site for newly announced items - and here we are promoting their habits, again...

    Do Amazon ever initially list pre-orders items way over the standard price, as might be expected from a pricing algorithm glitch or data entry transcription error? OK, maybe the algorithm could have a built in ceiling but they don't seem too keen on resolving the low initial pricing bug if it is one.

    Of course, it would seem that somebody was actively involved in generating these 'New Originals' listings...

    Yes, it's too bad that a few hardcore cynics have such strong adamant feelings about what they thought the ulterior motives of many of us, while the Sale Price was on, and afterwards, too.

    Well I predict it will take a year. Who knows I may cave before that.

    It's my guess the only way this could be priced below fifty bucks is if it were to absolutely tank. Short of that it'll never be under 50. Maybe in five and a half years you'll find a used one that's missing the book and the posters for fifty.
    There's no shame in caving. Between now and the release I'm sure you can think of a few things not to buy.

    Plus, after a certain point, unfortunately, there will be fakes.
