    Burning Shed reports they've sold out all copies of the CD-box and it's already been deleted? :|

    My amazon-order also still shows the delivery tomorrow till 11PM - which is strange since I paid the 5 Bucks more for morning express...
    Starting to get worried...

    Amazon has shipped my vinyl but says the CDs won't arrive until Wednesday. Strange.

    My Amazon UK order has been on preorder since it was £205, and since I have since upgraded to Prime I got the delivery changed to 'expedited' this morning. I was told by the live chat when I got it changed the expected delivery date was now next Tuesday. I am hoping this is all due to it being based on release date + standard working days delivery, and I will get it Saturday latest, but I've not received any dispatch email or money coming out of my account :/

    Maybe someone detected a "loss of energy" during "Blue Jean" and needed to pull all the sets to correct this.

    :D

    Mine should arrive 17-18 october but I expect it will arrive sooner since it's only from Germany to Holland. The Pink Floyd box arrived on the day of release although they said it would take a few days.

    Update: just checked. 12 October set as date for delivery.

    Not a lot of viable options in Canada sadly.

    If your habit is to walk around with drumsticks in your back pocket, you had better take care when sitting on a park bench.

    Well, mine just flipped. It can no longer be cancelled and is "in transit".

    No early delivery for me then, but I fully expect it arriving on release day.

    Just bought the CD set in a Belgian store. They often receive stuff one day early and start selling, sometimes they receive it a couple of days late. No sign of the vinyl though...

    If they listened to the set carefully, they might have noticed that ALL of these albums suffer from a "loss of energy".

    Got my Loving the Alien LP boxset at the warehouse of the local Warner distributor here in Croatia. Have a friend there and she normally lets me get / buy titles a few days before the official release day. And sometimes they get stock a month before the release day!
    I remember seeing Pink Floyd's "A Foot in the Door" 2LP set way back at the beginning of August when the release day was September 28 - but couldn't get the LP until 3 days before the official release day.

    Amazon is showing next WEDNESDAY for my CD box. Hoping some kind of miracle happens tomorrow ... or that they at least release the Autorip.

    UPS put a natural disaster note on mine even though I am very far from florida and the shipment originated from Colorado. they also show it being in Nevada this morning then in sacramento at 11 then back in Nevada at 1...

    looks like it will still make it tomorrow but guess they are covering their bases when it screws up.

    Not sure that'll stay up for long. :D

    Also, no way I'm going to spoil my experience with Youtube. Box will be here tomorrow!
