I received an email stating that my Construct was being sent separately to the US, when I had requested them all together.

This has me concerned that I may not get Vocal or Thursday at all, since these are limited quantities. If Amazon already received their allotment of a limited edition vinyl, will they be getting any more? I may just have to return Construct and give up on collecting PSB if their label cannot be bothered to correctly inform amazon of quantities they are to receive.

I received emails from amazon.co.uk indicating both Vocal and Thursday were dispatched separately last night (or yesterday, as it may be, in the UK).

I got notices that all three have been sent. Each one a day apart. Amazon works in mysterious ways (though I do enjoy their attention to detail regarding regional differences: amazon.ca tells me my items have been shipped, while amazon.co.uk tells me they've been dispatched).

It makes Thursday look like the runt of the litter doesn't it? I can't see why that couldn't be a double 12" too. It's not like the 12" sales are going to catapult it into the top 40
is is and isnt isnt

The best reason I can think of is if the original intention was to get the 12" singles released on the same day as Thursday.

Retro. :)

Mine's arrived and the sleeves look great, especially Love is a Bourgeois Construct.

However the pressing of the Claptone Remix on record 2 is all messed up with lots of distortion, and it briefly bleeds into the start of The Little Boots Dub. Anyone else got this problem on their's? I am sure its a pressing problem and must affect them all.

On a positive note the nice surprise is the the Dave Aude Extended Instrumental version, which is a gem. Why it wasn't on the CD I don't know. Its much better than the Dirty Dub Remix on the CD, and has some nice melodic breaks emphasising the Bourgeois tune. I really like this version.

Other records in the set all play fine. Good news that other's work and it's not a pressing issue. I'll send mine back to exchange it. Cheers for feedback.

All mine have now arrived from Amazon (UK) in absolutely pristine condition. The ones from the official store (which were dispatched earlier) have still not arrived. I really should send DHL an Xmas thankyou card (not).
