I assume early Jan. for the LP set as well, then?

My assumption over here is that Universal will be shipping my wadge of vinyl out next week. Wishful thinking, perhaps?

I'm assuming they're shipping tomorrow which is even more wishful. I have got a Parcelforce card from today so maybe...

Vinyl set is today in-stock. So they should ship today.

CD set available on the 20th of December.

Could it be a Tubby-tastic weekend coming up then? Hope so.

I’ve ordered the CD version as well, so that I have all the alternates. There’s dedication to the cause for you. :) The CD set is likely to get more play as well.

Not even heard the ‘Grits’ album yet either so that will be a nice surprise too.

Edited to specify I meant the CD box set.

It was at least $150 when I reserved mine, which was in the summer.

What ? :o

I think my set must be a bit delayed due to the CD set to be shipped with it. Damn !

I will console myself with spinning some original Tubby Fontana..;)

I got the flyers too...

Hermes delivered the Tubby, received an email notification about an hour in advance

Just ordered mine via Udiscover too. Can't understand (*) why Amazon (UK) decided to up their original price by over 25% thus doing themselves out of several customers including me?

(*)that was a rhetorical question as I think I can guess the answer

Based on a tip from superdeluxeedition.com, I pre-ordered this from amazon.ca (Canada) today, $48.29 including shipping for the 13-CD set.  Would have been $70.38 from amazon.com.

Very good price but too bad about the New Year wait.

Hoping I finally get my sets on Friday or thereabouts in time for an Xmas Tubby blowout. The Amazon UK price is ridiculous though.

Really looking forward to the Gearbox vinyl !

That’s a bit worrying. Maybe Hermes have got lost somewhere up the A1?

I think Hermes are going to say it has been delivered .... only not to me... Hopefully Decca will put things right

You’re not the only one to have had issues, Clunky. Something went wrong with the original card processing of mine so I just had to re-order the whole lot from scratch. ;)

Maybe worth a wander round the neighbourhood to see if anyone is playing ‘Dear Johnny B’ through their window at full volume?

Hermes are not my favourite delivery company..
