  2. I received an email today from Amazon UK saying that my order of the vinyl has now been played until 26 April!


    Unfortunately, the release date for the item(s) listed below was changed by the supplier, and we need to provide you with a new estimated delivery date based on the new release date:

    Carpenters;The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra "Carpenters With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra [VINYL]"
    Estimated arrival date: April 26 2019

    One of our aims is to provide a convenient and efficient service but in this case, we've fallen short. Please accept our sincere apologies.

    You haven't been charged for these items. We don't charge your payment card until just before your parcel is dispatched, at which time we'll send you an e-mail to confirm the payment details, estimated delivery date, contents and method of delivery."

    At this rate I am beginning to wonder if Universal should wait until Volume 2 and put the vinyl out as a boxset! :tongue:

    Can UMG get anything right when it comes to vinyl?

    I see UMG vinyls for sale. It’s like since it’s the Carpenters, they’ll just work to not get it right.

    Not really, just feels that way.

    I'm actually glad that the vinyl was delayed...why? because I just cancelled my order with Amazon for the regular black vinyl. I realized that I already have 2 CD's Target and Japan and I have the digital copies too. I also ordered the white vinyl L/E and having the white vinyl will be more than enough for this release. I'm already over buying as it is....:laugh: so thank you Universal you saved me money with your constant delays. :laugh:

    So just to set the record straight....I got the same email above that Carpe Diem posted that it was delayed to March 15. I haven't got the email that it's delayed again to April 26th like Nick posted above.

    But this link confirms that even for the US fans...the vinyl has been officially pushed back to April 26th.

    So the vinyl went from Feb 8th, to March 15 and now it's April 26th :sigh:
    cueing up "Happy" because it is what it is....:laugh:

    I originally did not think I wanted the vinyl, but if it should happen to turn out that the delays are being caused by Richard's tweaking, then I'll be happy to get it whenever it arrives.

    I imagine that Richard wasn’t happy with the way Universal botched the vinyl box set. I have a feeling that with this release, he’s not going to allow the LPs to ship until they meet his exacting standards. What are the chances that he’s examined samples, and then asked that they be redone (possibly more than once), which could account for the delays?
