    My pre-order for the MOFI SACD of Richard Thompson's 'Rumor and Sigh' is now about 14 months old :rolleyes:
    We had a 1st birthday party early in December............... :cool:

    Just wondered what the oldest age is of any of the forumite's MOFI pre-orders ? I'm sure some of you can beat 14 months !!!

    P.S. Just spotted title should read 'wherefore' (Gorts can help ?). Not very good considering I'm an English teacher........... :shake:

  2. Ry Cooder’s Chicken Skin Music SACD was announced over a year ago but I didn’t pre-order. Currently scheduled for March 9th.

    They have a long history of delays like this. I’ve had the 45 rpm Dire Straits titles pre-ordered for at least that long. When they finally are done Music Direct will need new credit card information because the one I ordered them with expired long ago.

    Based on my Rumor and Sigh vinyl, you’re SACD should be worth the wait.

    I’ve had Breakfast in America pre-ordered for over a year I think, also Dire Straits titles...

    ?? Doesn't 'wherefore' mean 'why'

    Yeah that monologue is about interrogating why he needs to share a name with something she's supposed to hate (his family)

    Maybe she was just p/o'd that it was taking so long to get a shipping notice

    True. But the man in the street takes it to mean where, as in the popular ditty :
    Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo ?
    Juliet, Juliet, I am in the toilet....:D
  9. Does it have to be Mofi, I have 3 APO SACD titles on preorder for over 3 years.

    Didn't the Billy Joel Greatest Hits take forever?

    I've had the Dire Straits pre-ordered for what feels like 2 years by now. Incredible.

    I had the Manilow hits album on order for well over 2 years. And it was just cancelled. Why Supertramp is still up I don't know...I have heard they can't get the tapes from Rick Davies. Supposedly he doesn't want anything new put out with Roger on it. Stupid!

    I don't know how long the Joel took, but it sure was worth the wait! I hate that they announce things far too soon, but at least what they do is typically worth the wait.

    I remember in the 90’s Mofi being delayed all the time and I have given up worrying about the actual release date. When I hear it is out that is when I pay attention. Has anything gone out of print within a year of release? If it has it was a title I wasn’t interested in.

    The Billy Joel went almost instantly out of stock. I don't think they had anticipated a $89 album going that fast. I think the Simon & Garfunkel will sell out fast too. Limited to 1500 copies I believe. But I think you're right....most of it is around for a while, I just wouldn't take a chance on anything I really wanted.

    True. Good job his dad didn't want to call him Eric. 'Eric and Juliet' just doesn't sound right..... :)
  20. Does anybody remember Chicago? CTA and Chicago eventually saw the light of day but man the wait!
  21. The Manilow does not count as it was axed. The three I ordered two credit card expirations ago are still listed.
    There may be hope one is supposedly out soon.

    There's something really strange going on with MoFi. I hope they're still selling well enough to justify putting out new releases... I want more classical stuff.

    I will say, they'll have to do something absolutely magical to beat the bog standard 80s US Dire Straits CDs.

    Seems like releases have really slowed down. As a lover of their product I hope all is well. I wonder if they are struggling to get licenses with the vinyl resurgence. The labels may figure they should be releasing this stuff themselves. If so, I wish they would step up the quality!
