Just had a memory on my FB feed where I had mentioned the upcoming recording with the Royal Philharmonic. 1 year ago.
Didn’t you hear? It’s delayed because they are trying to press it on a 7-inch tri-micron disc!The last email I received from the "Official Carpenters Store" on July 18th contained the following statement;
"Your Carpenters with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra music product is now expected to ship in 3-4 weeks. Upon shipment, an email will be provided containing tracking information."
Their 4 weeks will be up this Thurs Aug 15th.
That means I should be receiving an email with the "tracking information" sometime this weekend! Oh Joy!!
This thread will run for a while, as everyone dissects the vinyl versions in comparison to the myriad tinkered CD and online versions released so far. I’ve long since lost all interest in following the pointless audio facelifts but I just hope for everyone’s sake that the vinyl doesn’t come complete with jagged, razor sharp edges and misshapen centre holes that the box set vinyl did.Well considering what happened with the LAST vinyl release, there could be some interesting posts indeed over the next few days.
