Annually will be back in stock tomorrow at 10 am, 45 copies only.
The fans whose orders were canceled should have been contacted privately about these. The usual terrible service continues...

Not sure why they need to make these limited releases. They don't make much money off of selling them as their prices are cheap relatively, but then they go for extortionate prices on ebay (over $100 for this, are you kidding me!?!). Maybe have it available to order for a few weeks and then send it to the printer. That would save a lot of heartache and eliminate ebay resale market, which only helps a few greedy people get a little extra spending money.

For the record, I got mine via the official site with no problems, but think the way it is handled is rather poor. It would be different if it was a limited edition music item, but i do not think Literally or Annually should fall into that, unless they want to make them expensive, signed editions, or have them bound in leather with gilt pages, etc.

Literally was always managed by them, not Parlophone, wasn't it?

I'm a bit confused, to be honest. "Annually" appeared on the screen and it immediately said it's sold out. Did anyone happen to catch a copy?

I got one into my basket. Clicked to checkout and said it has sold out. Still in my basket but can't actually buy it. #*#*ing rediculous.

Lucky you! :) So, ultimately I didn't manage to get my hands on one of the remaining copies. In case anyone has a spare copy left I'd be glad to receiving an offer.

It's like casting a few crumbs to the pigeons, isn't it? Sit back and watch the free-for-all.

I can't see why they couldn't estimate demand a little more accurately before publishing. The cynic in me wonders if somebody involved is secretly pleased with the eBay extortion that subsequently ensues. That said, while I have great sympathy with any fan who wants to buy this kind of release and cannot, I'll never understand those who, seemingly, ensure the eBay extorters continued business by coughing up ludicrous money to "complete" their collection. They're like drug addicts without the chemical excuse for their helplessness.

My offer for book only is still valid (I keep CD for myself :-) )

It's just let me buy one now, Friday just before 6pm. Image said sold out but clicked onto it and it said in stock. Let me pay and got an order confirmation through. Went back and it was out of stock again. Will believe it when I receive it!
