Wild Life / Red Rose Speedway Price and Shipping Thread

Discussion in 'Music Corner' started by MemoInPR, Oct 19, 2018.

  1. I decided a while back, that for special limited releases, to not be temped to shop out of my comfort zone in terms of vendors out of the country to save a few bucks. Too many possible issues with them not having product, shipping issues or return hassles if there are problems with the item.

    I'm not a fan at all of Udiscover, but they were the only domestic seller of this big box. I won't buy anything from them that I can buy local or via Amazon.

    I am beyond pissed off about this. The box set was a gift to myself in advance of Acoustic Neuroma surgery that has left me single side deaf. It's tough enough dealing with a "mono" world and now this insult to injury.

    Same situation for me too. So frustrating.

    Agreed the last thing I got from UDiscover was the coloured bundle saga from last year. Actually in the UK they do not seem too bad. Big box came today via Hermes a local courier and I got an email giving me a delivery time period. Well packaged in a nice cardboard box stating Wings etc and the box nicely wrapped up in a waterproof cover.

    My big barn box was delivered earlier. This has to be the heaviest box set ever. No idea how i’m going to store this thing!

    That's terrible, sorry to hear. If they end up offering the special content separately, I'll definitely get that, but no way I'm ordering this big box now.

    I haven't heard from them yet, but I'm sure that's what they'll tell me.

    Can anyone with the Big Box confirm, are the individual sets inside shrink wrapped or not?

    Got off the phone with customer service from the Paul McCartney store while on my lunch break. I was able to get my order number and info regarding the box. It should be shipping out of the warehouse in Virgina today and I will get an email once it does so hopefully it willarrive next week. I feel a little better.

    Just got a text (while at work): "Delivered: Your Amazon package with Red Rose Speedway [Box Set] and 1 other item"

    Yay! This is going to be a long day at work. As much as I love Red Rose Speedway, I am looking forward to hearing "1 other item". I think "1 other item" is overdue for reevaluation.

    1 other item, whatever happened to, whatever happened to?

    Is there any chance that a second "run" of the big box set will occur? I missed out on it when it was first announced....

    No one knows for sure, but I would be surprised. One chance I guess is if they have a bunch of unsold individual sets, it might make sense for them to try to rebundle them in the BBB.

    thank yo
    thank you
    Contacted them and they said the order is in process now. The first step of 3. Should be 1 1/2 weeks and coming out of Virginia. At least they saw my order and confirmed my address.

    1 Other Item is pretentious, underrated, overrated, overpriced, and after all these years, STILL nobody knows for sure who sang its backing and harmony vocals. You should exchange it for Another Item, which is really good, underrated, and a bargain too :)

    My order is still active - and it's for a supposed 12/12 delivery, not 12/14.

    No change - not shipped but not canceled!

    Agreed. Also, Another Item has a great bass line.

    It's just Another Item, slippin' into stockings, steppin' into shoes....

    And since you've gone you're just another item.

    I called that number for Music Today and was told my order was placed at 8am this morning and was awaiting fullfillment. Didn't show that I pre-ordered and paid on 10/19. I got an order number and was told that the order should ship out in a few days.

    Wonder if they're just entering random pre-orders in the system over the last day or so. Since this is a limited release. Shouldn't the first orders that were placed be fullfilled first? I sure hope so! Still haven't received a shipping email notification.

    Thank you very much. My experience on the phone was very similar to yours. He said it is being prepped for shipment and should be going out by Monday at the latest. I feel better, too. I'm OK waiting a couple weeks, though it will be hard!
