    Where's the pre-order on Hendrix "Are You Experienced" SACD on Amazon US?
    They have the listing for Axis SACD and I've already pre-ordered it. But where's AYE SACD?
    Weird since they are being released simultaneously.

    That might explain it because I believe they both get their inventory from the same distributor.

    I've gotten Amazon purchases mailed from them in Shepherdsville, KY.
    Import CD, Deep Discount & Blowitoutahere are all in their stable too. They even use a similar web design.

    Also, WOWHD. But I imagine that Amazon has many different sources. I've received CDs from them that weren't available at any of the online Alliance stores.

    I don't think it's because they are just sitting on it... it's my understanding that there is only 1 SACD pressing plant operating in the world. And since it's in Europe and not somewhere lacking in labor laws, they are probably not pressing 24/7.
     
    Dave and ledzepp like this.
  11. I've read that Alliance sources a huge percentage of Amazon's CD stock - possibly as high as 60-70%. Amazon basically won't deal directly with smaller labels.

    Several sites including Elusive Disc are now taking pre-orders, showing "Expected on: 5/31/2019".
