Has anyone who ordered the Street Fighting Years box from Amazon actually received it yet? I ordered mine on the day it was announced, and it had a guaranteed delivery date of March 6 (the release date). That went back to today (March 10), and I’ve just received an email to tell me it will be “between April 6th and May 21st”.

Maybe I’m just cursed, as my delivery date for the Songs From the Big Chair and The Hurting reissue box sets, also ordered immediately they were announced, has already gone back from release date until next Tuesday.


Got my pre-order vinyl from Amazon of Octopus. Very disappointing. Despite the Amazon page stating this was a double it is only a single LP. Flimsy cover and vinyl. I didn’t pre-order from Rhino as I presumed I was getting a double anyway from Amazon.



I really disliked Deacon Blue at the time. I was always more of a Big Dish man. Feelings haven’t change. I won’t say rubbish, I’ll say lucky.

my mpeople boxset just shipped from amazon.co.uk this evening


Human League’s OCTOPUS 2xLP Rhino exclusive is SOLD OUT. Dammit!


Ended up cancelling the M Peeps box as this month is expensive as it is with the Donna box set out at the end of March. I also wasn’t sure if it would be to much Heather Smalls in one hit.


How can some people already have MPeople’s box and mine hasnt even shipped? Where they order it from?
Also the amazon signed edition is stilk available for preorder…

So pleased to see ‘Octopus’ out on vinyl again. I have ordered the limited double from Rhino. Hopefully ‘Credo’ will be out on vinyl next year again too, I think there were only 500 copies of the original and prices secoond-hand are eye-watering.


I have read that only 500 copies of the “Octopus” double vinyl are available. Looking forward to receiving my copy, hopefully by the end of this week.


I remember seeing Credo on vinyl in my local shop when it came out. I decided to go for the CD. Mistake.
