Ordered from beatles.com - BS


On August 9, I ordered 3 Mono Boxes along with some stereo discs from the official Beatles site. Was wondering what the order situation was, since tomorrow is 9-9. No email regarding shipping. So I went to the site, and this is what it says:

The Beatles (Remastered Mono Box Set)*
(BEA47213)

*Pre-Order! Release Date 09.09.09
Orders will ship first week of October

This is really a bunch of crap. Evidently no one who ordered there is getting the music this month. They can send me an email confirming the order, but NO email about the shipping delay.

Their orders are handled by Fanfire, which is now part of Livenation. I called them and the CSR said that emails were going out today. Nothing yet. At least they let me change my order from 3 mono boxes to 1.

This is completely unacceptable. Has anyone else ordered from there?

I've been following the thread on the Steve Hoffman site. It's been an interesting read, so from that I'd say it looks like your copy is going to be from the 2nd pressing.

Some of the folks over there have already received their boxes & if you look on ebay, the frenzy is in full swing.

I ordered my set from Barnes & Noble Aug 1 but they won't ship until today. Waiting for shipping confirmation.

There's a chance you can snag a copy from Best Buy today but you need to be pretty much first in line when the doors open.
I guess I'm getting the one after 909. It's still BS
If you are unhappy with their service why not cancel your order. I say vote with your wallet or purse whichever the case may be.

Or perhaps the long and winding road.

The End.
They said my order will be shipped out when I'm 64.
