    Got my 6 today, as expected the same as everybody else's. Damn this Mingus album rocks, playing now. That's the only new one of the 6, but no regrets.

    Comparing to my first batch of 10, I definitely feel like these are a rougher set, only half of them sealed, some of the covers a bit damaged, etc. I still give the Zavvi effort 10/10 overall, for £52 incl shipping I've gotten 11 absolutely amazing albums and now have 5 to give away to friends which they will love (despite the slight wear and year on the covers). But it looks like this was probably the tail end for them, given that everyone got exactly the same selection and the condition seems a bit worse than the earlier sets.

    They will all be held in 2 weeks hotel quarantine due to our Mutant Ninja Coronavirus! :)

    I ordered the 6 set and just received it. Mine differs with Time Out - Dave Brubeck instead of Somethin Else. This was the only one that was unsealed.

    Is this the first Brubeck spotted in the wild?

    Yeah big plot twist! After reading loads of these lists in order to decide whether it's worth getting a second set earlier, I think it is also the first one that doesn't include Somethin' Else :D

    I found mine under the Christmas tree this morning with Time Out instead of Somethin' Else. The only one that wasn't sealed.

    Yeah, strangely many people seem to make that typo when reporting these lists (some contextual auto-correct on the phone maybe?). :D If I got a dodgy grey market pressing with that actual text I'd probably keep it for the laughs...

    So for those that have ordered off the US site, are they D’Agnostini or public domain (Waxtime, Dol, etc)?
