I must be one of the lucky ones - residing in UK I ordered mine from bobdylan.com almost immediately it was announced with the bonus CD's. I got an e-mail acknowledgement almost immediately. No further correspondence from them then it arrived on release date, Friday at lunchtime from DHL. 8 hours later Sandbag sent me an e-mail to say it had been dispatched!! :)

It has finally arrived here at my home in Italy from Sandbag/bobdylan.com and it looks great. Worth the money!

Well I was very wrong about that.
Apparently it just arrived via DHL Express on 6th evening, having left UK on Friday 3rd. Pretty impressive.

Of course I am away for a week now, so I cannot hear it till the weekend, but even so ... Meanwhile, I have no idea what is that will be delivered via FedEx next Monday :)

I'm in Boston, Ma. I pre-ordered from BD.Com/Sandbag on Day 1. NO SET YET!. I Emailed Sandbag on Friday, they just replied this morning (Monday) and said that they shipped it out on Friday Nov. 3rd and gave me a DHL Link and Tracking Number. When I clicked the Link it says the Tracking Number is Invalid. Unbelievable. Never pre-ordering again.

Happy days, mine arrived today (Co Clare, Ireland).

Counting down the hours at work until I get to have my first proper listen! (I've San Diego in the car stereo, but only got to listen to track 1 - my colleagues at work won't allow me to stick it on - they haven't forgiven me for Christmas In The Heart)

I got my shipping US DHL tracking # on Nov 1. Still has not changed from "package en route to DHL ecommerce center". It sucks that the album has been released for days and I can't even track down my order.

Anybody who has trouble tracking their parcel via the links provided by Sandbag should try https://www.17track.net/en (an all-in-one international tracking portal). Enter the tracking number provided by Sandbag and then on the next page select the carrier. That way you might find more detailed tracking info than via the local carrier portals provided by Sandbag.

This is useful, thanks. Sandbag claimed on Friday that my shipment had already been mailed out but according to this tracking info, my order was not shipped until today (11/6). I've emailed them to ask what the deal is, I haven't really been getting bent out of shape about the delivery stuff, but it's unfortunate to mislead your customer if that's what actually happened.

I failed to find a proper postal adress, though
edit: there's also an "UK Production Mananger", Jof Newill.. jof@sandbaguk.com


Thanks for posting this! I think Sony needs to hear from us as well though. Sandbag has already been paid by Sony so they technically don't work for us, but for Sony. Sony needs to know that the 50 employee company they hired wasn't up to the task.

Pre-ordered from the wbesite to get the San Diego show.

USPS has been "currently" awaiting the package for at least 72 hours now.

I just tried the same tracking number in the DHL website, and received the following info:

My set just arrived from importCDs. They'd packed the box in a simple cardboard box with no other packaging, so the corner of the case is battered and the spine of the book has cracked. Freaking awesome.

the DPD courier is circling around my street an will be here around 3 o'clock, according to their live tracking site.

Funny, was only a few hundred meters away and then went into another direction.

yes, in a way. I met another postman from DPD when I was doing the shopping. He told me, they have to follow a given route, depending on where to deliver exactly. When they have to carry out an "express parcel" they have to leave this route at the nearest point where to reach this vip adressee and then heading back to follow the normal route, probably without knowing another customer is that close. I think it has to do with how all the parcels are stowed into the car.

Finally my tracking info is updated and the package is till in the US, "en route" to dhl e-commerce center. Guess that means another week before it reaches Oslo. It all seems pretty randomly organized.
