For decades I’ve grabbed it on release day from a brick & mortar.
The last several releases have sat wrapped on cellophane sometimes
for weeks before getting an uninterrupted chance to dig into them.

So, for the first time ever, it’s mail ordered.
No rush to hear it, just want to be sure
it’s there when ready.

My dilemma is this: I'd really like to get the set on the day of release. If I order it from Amazon, I won't be in during the day to sign for it. If I get it delivered to work, I risk having to wait until the Monday if it's a day late.

There's a Fopp near work, so I could pick it up at lunch. Does anyone have any experience pre ordering with Fopp? Will I get it on release day? Any other ideas?


Do you have an Amazon locker nearby? That might be an alternate option.

After the disaster with the Trouble No More set (delivery delays, unresponsive service), it seems they are moving to Amazon only for delivery. Unfortunately not offering any pre order bonus disc, so far as I can tell.

Maybe the hassle through the official site wasn't worth it? As many have pointed out they could have done the original acetate as a bonus.

amazon.de sells the Deluxe box set for 119,99 EUR at the moment. I think that's a fair price. ;-)

Any Australians found a way to pre-order yet?

Annoyingly we can no longer order from US Amazon and the Australian site doesn’t have a listing for this (along with a lot of other things on the US version) at the moment ...

I suppose it’ll be up somewhere soon, but would like to have the order locked down as soon as I can.

Interesting that, in today's world, the full retail price of this deluxe set and book is around the price of a single concert ticket...

Oh good I thought I was going mad.

Yes, seems to be no way to order it to Australia at all.

I'm not going to be able to sleep till this is sorted.

I'm in Japan and only the digital downloads are up on Amazon at the moment, but other countries seem to have prices for imports from Japan.......weird. I am sure it'll all work out in a week or so. We'll all be able to get a copy. Stay calm.

Define “Limited”

100,000 units @ US$160/unit
= US$16MM

Is 100,000 unit a reasonable guess?
Can’t recall how many units the last sold out product was.

It seems that the biggest box for BS 12 ($500) was limited to around 5,000. But I could definitely be remembering incorrectly. Does anyone else recall? But yes, I'm guessing that these sorts of deluxe sets ($100-$200) would have a much larger number of sets....grave

Ok, I'm really confused now... Is the deluxe edition $150 or $251? Amazon.co.uk has two editions, both 6CD but only one has "deluxe" on the cover.

$251: https://www.amazon.co.uk/More-Blood-Tracks-Bob-Dylan/dp/B07GVXL5DQ/ref=sr_1_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1537509591&sr=1-2&keywords=more+blood+more+tracks
$150 https://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B07H5VTTDD/expectingrain-21/

Just an error, right? The full version is "only" $150, yes?

The 251 one is the Japan Import that keeps getting mistakenly posted around here! "Label: Jap Import"

2 LP is the way to go until the 6 cd price drops. Think of that sweet vinyl

Right? So there is only two cd versions? The single disc and the full 6CD+1 Book version. Stripped down and deluxe? (Some sites say "super deluxe" and amazon doesnt even have "deluxe" on the cd cover image).

^Correct. As far as I understand, there's the 6CD, 1CD, and 2LP versions with the latter two being the same content.

Then I'm going through with my pre-order. It's teeny-tiiiny cheaper on the norwegian "Platekompaniet"-site. $134 vs $149 on amazon, plus free shipping obviously.

Very interesting to read about people-chagrin re 'price, but:

My point right now is that there is nothing on the alba - 6 or 1 CD version - that we have not heard/got etc.

I foolishly have everything sold/unsold available, but the whisky-buck stops here - my archives record this fact.

CALL LETTER BLUES - e.g. free everywhere, or paid-for in 1992-ish on original Bootleg 1-111

Trump etc fake lies/real lies - enjoy.

Just looking at Amazon prices here in Europe and the UK. It's 120 Euros from German Amazon which converts to about £107 - but Amazon UK is charging £150... That's a hell of a discrepancy...and a real rip-off if those figures are correct...

People seem fairly confident the price will drop and, to be fair, they usually do. If it doesn't drop soon, I'll be cancelling my order and going with Badlands who are retailing the set at £99 plus p+p.
