Just another ad / special that BB doesn't come through on....

Is that the sort of thing they do? No wonder everyone's got a down on them.

Correction -- it was a mis-priced item.

It never was an "ad / special" at that crazy $9.99 price.

I highly recommend anyone who wants the Best Buy ltd. ed. to get on over there as soon as possible. When I went in at 10 AM today at the one nearest my house, they, as the ad said, only had 2 sets in the whole store.

Got my copy at the local BB, and they price-matched the 39.99 price without any haggling on my part. They just said, "Yes, we can match that." Very smooth.

I probably won't get as I told them that I felt their reason for not honoring my order was ridiculous and I would never order from them again if I could help it.

I told them their reason was an outright lie and that I was reporting them

to the Better Business Bureau (which I did) ... but they still sent me that

$10 coupon.

I too am jealous. Maybe the distributor had about 5 copies at that prce. I won't deal with or get it from Best Buy, but how does the set look & sound?

Mine are still showing as "pending," meaning they haven't actually gone through, but the money is being held in suspense until the authorization finally expires.

My box set should have arrived today from BB, so I hope to listen to it tonight. Initial feedback seems to be very positive on the mastering, but it's Vic Anesini, so that's not a surprise. BB canceled my $9.99 order, but did issue the $30 credit on my price adjustment from the initial order that shipped already, so the box set is costing me $15. :tup

I actually think the design of the box itself is a little cheesy - I'm not going to have a chance to spin it at a decent volume until this weekend so no comment on the sound, but I expect it to be great.

I'm baffled and apalled that "Hot Fun in the Summertime," "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)," and "Everybody Is a Star" are not included as bonus tracks on this box! It's not like they ran out of space! I know that these were non-lp singles, give me a break! So where will re-masters of these show up??? This is just horse shit.

According to a post in this thread, these will be included on "Greatest Hits" later this year.

Well I played about half of There's a Riot last night at pretty high volume - it sounds MUCH better than the old version (granted, that's not hard) - Poetry in particular pratically sounds like a different song! Looking forward to getting some real time with this set.
