Thelonious Monk - Palo Alto (Impulse) --> fresh new monk!

339 posts in this topic

Well, this turn of events is deeply upsetting.  Amazon.ca says that the Palo Alto date is going to be unavailable and they have cancelled my order.  At the moment, Amazon.co.uk says the item is out of stock (and doesn't appear to be made available again).  It's coming out soon in the US, though the proposed shipping (to Canada) is pure extortion. I guess I don't need this after all.

Maybe try Dusty Groove?

I just feel that I am being ripped off with $13 shipping charges.  After it was suddenly legit to sell in the US, it should have been just as legal to sell in Canada.  I'm sure it is a totally pointless protest, but I refuse to buy this until it is available in Canada.

$13 is a lot. Did you look at DG. They’re going to have it. Maybe eBay sellers in Canada will have it.

I checked out the HMV shop that I got the copy of this a month or two ago and - zilch !

I am highly pleased. It is an excellent performance and the sound is good. Recorded by the unknown  Jack Towers of high school custodians.

Supposedly, now available on Amazon.ca again with release date of tomorrow.  I'll have to have my wife put in the order as I don't have Prime.  (While definitely a first-world problem, I'm still PO'ed that they jumped the gun and completely cancelled the order instead of just pushing back delivery date, since it seemed likely it would be made available to Canada along with the US.  In the process, they disrupted a bundled order that did qualify for free shipping but no longer does after I have to buy the Monk as a stand-alone item.)

Since Columbia Monk is sort of "the sound of Monk" for me, this is encouraging.

Unlike some no shipping notice yet, expected delivery is the 22nd though.

Just got a shipping notice from Deep Discount. Curious as to why it was still on pre-order on their site after the release date, but I was not in a hurry.

Mine said it was going to ship tomorrow with a delivery date of October 21st. Uh. No thanks Amazon. So I canceled and ordered it from Target and it’ll be here by Monday at the latest.

Thanks to the new management of USPS there will be delays.

I'm still waiting for mine from amazon UK. No hurry, plenty to listen to, just want to have it in hand.

Sad but true. And Amazon is having their own woes apparently too - everything I’ve ordered lately is taking 3-4 weeks to arrive.

Got shipping notice, due to today now, and apparently Amazon all the way thru the last mile? Never had that happen before ... my house doesn't show up well on GPS I hope they don't mess it up.

Nice.  Congrats. 

I'm now thinking I'll have my copy by early next week.  We'll see.

Wish I could pop it in and start listening but I am in training - remotely - on a new gig. No idea when the boss is going to call or initiate a zoom meeting to go over something new.

In the meantime I got a digital promo to review and I sampled half the album on Amazon HD Music this morning.
