    Glad to hear you got something out of it.

    So, if they ever do come through, you will have basically got it for nothing?

    I guess I better give it a try, I assume you just contact customer services and moan?

    As long as my Hendrix order hasn’t been canceled, I’m perfectly fine with it awaiting repress or whatever.

    I just don’t get the impatience and frustration over backorders and product delays... :shrug:

    I spotted they Amazon had one in stock so got them to call me.
    It was priced at £79 and listed as a special edition.
    It was the same thing but for more money.
    The women couldn't find it kept saying we only have other sellers listing it.
    So I said right I will put it in my basket so you can see it.
    Ok she then said Oh your right.
    Can I put you on hold.
    Basically it went from there ?
    It says we have one copy in stock but we don't blah blah blah .
    I've asked that one be dispatched to you ASAP.
    As a I will add a months prime.
    After the next call.
    Then a £10 off your next order.
    Can't argue with good service.
    In fact when I ordered it it was £11.36
    It's still a open order.

    It's really fear of cancellation.

    Sorry to hear that, but had already seen numerous cancellation posts in the Classical Mega Box thread.

    To make it up to everyone, I opened an email from Amazon UK this morning that read:

    Based on your recent activity, we thought you might be interested in this:

    and then included a link to The Island Years box set by John Martyn for the low, low price of 384.97 pounds!! This despite the fact that I already own this box, bought from Amazon UK! :)

    However, if anyone wants to take advantage of this 'killer deal' I will be more than happy to share the link! :laugh:

    Me too. And i'll say its the best purchase ever. I listen to it weekly, unlike many box sets which rarely get pulled out, this one I play loads. Wonderful box. I'm still searching around on ebay and the like looking for his later, harder to find output. Cooltide is next on my to get list.

    Best £36 I ever spent on music.

    I remember ordering that but my order got cancelled. The 4-disc “best of” is fantastic though.

    I was just listening to Alice In Chains new album Rainier Fog. Quite good, actually. Very much like Classic AIC. I checked on Amazon (US) and with Amazon Global 'Something', I've seen this before, but I have no clue exactly what it is, the shipping is pretty expensive and it comes to about $33.

    So, I looked up the listing in Discogs and apparently it is pressed in the UK and done by Chris Bellman! I then figured I'd check Amazon UK since that is where it is coming from and shipping to the US with the VAT removed only came to about $23!
