Target still had the release date of 7/19 through yesterday. Today the 19th it says, “temporarily out of stock “
Not sold in stores.

I'm not holding my breath about this latest promise concerning the vinyl delivery. I feel like Charlie Brown running up to kick the football with Lucy holding it...

Another reason I feel that this will probably get released on Aug 30th is because of the pre-order that just went up on CD Japan of the Black vinyl indicating it's an import, issued outside Japan)...they have had up the CD's but just recently put up the vinyl pre-order.

Like in the last month, or months ago? Does this mean 8/30 is not happening? It’s been so long my preorder doesn’t even show on my Amazon account anymore. I have to search for the vinyl and then it shows up....

Apparently he had input on the set, since I remember seeing a video where he said he played each album on his own setup before signing off. So the first pressings must’ve been done with precision and then the rest not.
