    Kick (vinyl, at least) now showing as Nov 17th on Amazon.

    • sandman slim says:

      Yeah two days after they email me that it’s delayed till Feb., I get a second email saying “Good news! Your order will be available sooner. The new release date is Nov. 24.” Starting to think Amazon is actually deranged…

  2. Neil says:

    My order for Returning Jesus was dispatched yesterday from Amazon yet it’s saying it won’t dispatch Kick until Saturday despite me paying postage for it. It’s a bit worrying as well when it’s saying This item can be delivered to UK – Mainland implying that it is some kind of import.

  3. sandman slim says:

    According to Amazon (US), Kick has been delayed till Feb. 9. Bummer…

  4. Friso Pas says:

    If I have to believe my local record dealer, then Abba is delayed …again…until the first week of december.
    Could you find out, Paul?

  5. Marc says:

    That’s right! And I think his art is so boring and repetitive.

  6. Gis Bun says:

    No-Man’s Returning Jesus is a deluxe treatment with the original album plus a whack of extras on a second CD from EPs and what have you.
    [Also my last album of their I don’t have.]

  7. CJ says:

    I picked up the Debbie Gibson As & Bs singles compilation a few weeks back to whet my appetite for the box set, and it’s got me itching to hear the full thing. Too bad I have to wait an additional week for the shipping on it.

  8. Tim-meh says:

    Statistically it is now fact that there is at least one compilation album released every week that features artwork by Shepard Fairey.

  9. I believe the King Crimson box has been slipped to the 10th. There was a 1 week delay on the Earthbound release, so the box is following suit, even though Burning Shed have got them ready!

    The HIT FACTORY £CD Set is already on the shelves in Sainsburys, Cheadle!
