Just got the same email from What Records, so hopefully the "Leaving" multibuy will arrive tomorrow – along with the withdrawn Beatles 7" I ordered that is all over ebay for £££!

Yeah, i ordered that Beatles 7" too. Apple have withdrawn and destroyed all copies as the version of Love Me Do that was on it wasn't the "Ringo" version.

I see that itunes has 40 new singles releases along its front page strip and no "Leaving" "Leaving again" or "Leaving EP" on it. So thats download sales from the casual fan dead in the water then!

Yes, I too just got an email from what records;

'.. Just to let you know we have begun shipping the PSB leaving singles.

The 7 inch arrived today or we would have obviously shipped last week. Hopefully all orders will be shipped today and completed tomorrow.

Thanks as always for your support.

Cheers..'

Rough trade east have a full rack of CDs singles, 12" and the 7". Looks great. Wish I'd taken a photo.
Chris Lowe had also popped in last week with their manager

My local HMV had nothing. Absolutely nothing. No Cds, No 12". Not even by other artists! Dont stock singles anymore and dont stock vinyl. I wouldnt mind, but they bang on about losing money and almost going bust, yet dont stock the things that people would buy. I actually want them to go bust now. They ceased being a music store about three years ago

It's ridiculous. You would think they would stock the physical releases, what with it being something they could offer with immediacy that you otherwise have to wait for online.

I too have got the What Records email. Phew!

Our local indie shop today got the two CD singles, but I've already ordered them from the net. :///

I reckon a few of us complained to digital stores (the O/S distributor) as I got a full refund for my multi order as the 12" was damaged.
Maybe they realised that an envelope with no backing boards was a mistake.
They told me also not to return any of the order as a gesture of good will.

Maybe next time, the packaging will be bomb proof ;)

They hadn't changed it from last week – it was still promoting Magical Mystery Tour in the albums panel and Adele's Bond theme in the singles.

They've only changed it this evening. The "Chris" EP is in there.

Received from What Records today. All four items in perfect condition. Also, what a fantastic release. Proper quality stuff.

12 copies of Elysium. 4 copies of Elysium deluxe. And 12 copies of each leaving cd singles at HMVs Southampton. Had to seek them out though. Not on prominent "new release" display. And a fiver for the ep!

Email from What Records. My Multibuy has been despatched. Thought it had already but now it is.
This is a song about boys and girls. You hear it playing all over the world.
