Off to concert at Sage Gateshead 17th October, hoped by then to have least listened to new album.
Got email today from Amazon saying release of vinyl gone back to 15th October (are you Massive Attack in disguise).
No disrespect like, but not to bothered about signed photo's etc. As somebody once said "it's what's in the grooves that counts"
Can't even get a dodgy copy on Torrents!
Rant over.
Off to see David Gest now at opera house that should be interesting.

The reason for the delay is the quality of the vinyl pressing. This release, and particularly the vinyl version, is a very special release for Richard and he was not prepared to accept it going out unless it was as good as he wanted it to be.

The Mute reps at Rough Trade and Richard were very apologetic about it and they realised it would take longer to get this out once approved. They had hoped it would be ready for this monday for release, but alas that was not to be.

Hacked off with this as well.

Decided to go for the Special Edition vinyl from Piccadilly Records thinking I'd get it on the day of the Instore. I wouldn't mind if it was just the vinyl, but the fact that it's the CD as well means i haven't got the album at all as yet.

I suppose the upside was that I was hearing most of the album pretty fresh at the Bridgewater Hall and it made it all the more stunning for that.

This is a really good point. Richard has already said that it is not a box-set, merely that the CD is being thrown in for those who chose to purchase the vinyl. So, if Mute were really that apologetic, they could have sent the CDs out, with the vinyl to follow.

Oh well........ it'll definitely be worth waiting for though! Obviously the craftsmanship that used to go into vinyl production is missing now everything is on these little characterless disks :?
