Pre-Ordered one also, cheers. Hopefully it will be a coloured vinyl or even a set of coloured vinyls ?! But alas it will probably be pressed on super thick vinyl & cost circa £26. Good to have one anyway.

I think you can find out when you put any vinyl into a basket and proceed to check-out, before the final order there should be a summary; or at least something like that was said elsewhere here in the forum IIRC.

Greg.. did you opt for the With Signature option?? I'm worried about the reliability of the mail..

I think international shipping to india sucks.. My Literally came in a kinda twisted cover.. my Christmas card was bent.. Catalogue, which i ordered from Amazon came through alright, though the packing had taken a beating..

Will the quality of shipping improve with the extra 3.5 pounds? :(

i do not want a broken vinyl :(

Put a different, in stock album into the basket and try again - just don't go too far and pay!

Saying that, we're obviously still waiting to see what format the album will be in. I am hoping what we have put our money down on is a single disc album, but there's those comments by Neil about 11 or 12 disc vinyl release... I'm hoping that is a separate release entirely, but we'll have to wait and see.

I can't speak for how items are handled by the mail staff of different countries, but I do know What Records do package their items very well.

Any further questions, feel free to e-mail What Records - WhatUK (at) AOL (dot) com.

:think: :( [busily X-refs emails] :D Yes :!: etc. :lol:

Judging whether to get "Signed-For" is tricky. I know what you mean Vince.
I have to warn shippers on every CD I get from UK.
Packing that is ok for UK shipping is sometimes not enough for international shipping.

But I think most vinyl record shippers are experienced enough to know this.

BTW a really good cheap trick :P for CDs is to open them up and put a square
of thin foam over the CD and close the cover. it makes the jewel case rigid and
the shock of front on whacks is transferred thru the case rather than absobed
causing a cracked case.

Wsalva used to get items shipped to him from What Records you could check with him. I know when I used to go into the Shop when it was up and running the packing up and packaged items seemed to be ok.

I like Steve knew the owner and could get promos but alas this avenue is not there like it used to be.
They make a little go along way.. very Minimal but Fundamental.

Thanks for link. I am new here, but delighted.
I am in Canada, so hopefully it won't cost an arm and leg.

Not sure if this link will work, but EMI UK now list a single disc LP with catalogue number 695 3471, barcode 5099969534713, and release date April 27.

It's good to see the that the normal release and the multi disc release are now confirmed as two different things, that was a bit of a worry for a while!
