    Saving up for the Super Deluxe (you don't get billed until it ships in June). Just 1 copy for me - not speculating. I have the original and reference it all the time when I am listening to monkeemusic

    Deluxe Edition. I have no issue with the price. I have the 2005 book and have always enjoyed it. I have all the Rhino Super Deluxe Boxes along with my Colgems, Arista and Rhino vinyl. With all the enjoyment I’ve gotten from Andrew’s work on various Monkees, Kinks and Bee Gees projects, I have no problem supporting this one as well.

    I pre ordered yesterday but as yet have had no e mail conformation - has anyone ordered and has received an e mail ?

    Some people did get an email, others (like me ) did not. Andrew has said on numerous occasions, if the screen after you made your reservation said it was confirmed, you are good to go. If you are worried, you can email them or try to contact Andrew directly on social media to confirm. You will be on the newsletter email list as well. One went out a couple of days ago.
    Hope this helps :wave:

    I did not and after trying to use the "Contact Us" link on the site to try and confirm and finding it was also broken, I reached out to Andrew on Twitter. He sent me an email later in the day confirming I was good. Seems like there should be a better system in place to send confirmation considering the "pre-order" it now or never get it aspect of the campaign.

    Thanks, I'll do as you suggest, I just want him to confirm he did get the order - I'd hate to miss out.

    I also reached out to Andrew on Twitter, and he confirmed my order. I felt the same way you do.

    At this point, more people are getting all of them rather than just the Super Deluxe Edition by itself!

    $75 Open edition. For me, there is not enough to justify the added expense of the other editions.

    I totally respect that. I am thrilled that we actually have options of multiple versions!

    $75.00 version for me as well...

    I probably could swing the deluxe edition if I really needed to, but I'd rather have the open edition and know I'll have money to buy the "Dolenz sings Nesmith" CD, (as well as a couple other titles I need to buy)...

    Final weekend to reserve your copies. Hopefully everyone's got theirs

    I'm going with the most basic version. It's pretty pricey as it is (largely the result, I'm sure, of a limited print run which doesn't allow for spreading out the cost). For me, the extras in the other editions aren't worth the extra $100-$150. Best to leave those for other fans who really want them.

    I actually don't think it is a lot. It's self-published, and pretty big. And at $75 he'll still be lucky to cover his printing costs. That means the endless hours of research and writing are basically for free, which it shouldn't be.

    Super Deluxe and the basic... absolutely worth it and can’t wait to do a deep dive into all the new documentation.

    They're only printing enough to accommodate the pre-orders. The pricier versions are "limited" because they have already decided on a maximum number of copies. The cheapest version doesn't have a ceiling, but they will only print enough to fill the orders. There won't be extra copies going to bookstores. So don't sit out the pre-order period on the assumption that it'll show up cheaper at Barnes & Noble in six months.

    Is there a definite amount of the Super Deluxe Edition that will be printed?
  23. BobT

    As many as are ordered plus a few more on case of damaged copies. If there are any left over, he said he will sell them to whomever is on the wait list. Bottom line, of you want one, you better reserve one by Monday noon eastern.

    but that's not fair to those who buy the SDE as there is no way of knowing the amount printed in total before laying ones money down...even Genesis Pub Ltd of the UK has a stated amount printed for sale...it's not a limited edition without a number behind the LIMITED EDITION...do you understand where I am coming from?....when I buy a limited edition I want to know how many have been made for sale...2,000, 2,500, 10,000, 5,000...1?

    I am not affiliated or employed by Andrew Sandoval. In fact, I have met him only once , very briefly. I am only relaying what I have read and or heard from his interviews. I can say that his reasoning is not to overprint and have to pay to store phone book sized books. And he wants to make sure that everyone that wants a copy gets one. I am sure you will be able to find out how many of each of the Super Deluxe and Deluxe copies are printed shortly after the deadline. He is very accessable on Twitter and Facebook.
