I assume these are part of the original run. I remember there being a long delay in the manufacturing process with these originally, so maybe people cancelled or funds declined and they were never resold...

They probably found an old box lying on a shelf.
Jean-Michel Jarre's debut single La Cage was released and sold approx. in the 100s. The rest was destroyed, making it a very desirable object. But a few years ago, a few boxes of this single emerged from the old EMI vaults. Since then, you can find it on sites every now and then.

How does a company fail to notice they didn’t have £15000 of stock just “lying around?”

Sadly, it looks like it was a stock issue. I bought it last night when there were 19 left and just received a mail from The Vinyl Factory cancelling my order. It's already been refunded. It's been a lovely morning, though... :roll:

A smart move to hold some box sets back to sell on a rainy day, and now with Brexit around the corner maybe they need some extra income.

I've noticed that the Duran Duran - Diamond release is back in stock as well.

Ordered a copy this morning and just had an email saying it was added to their online system in error and therefore cancelled. It did seem very odd that some had become available.

What a truly surreal week.. We began with the news of an ep from nowhere, drip fed 1 track a day, carried on with news of the next Annually and then this total clusterf@ck. I too ordered this morning thinking I'd finally got one of the Holy Grails only to get another email from VF stating the same. They had been placed on their site in error.. I'm seething. Not only for me but for all those that have been treated like this today.. :evil: :evil: :evil:

I talked to a guy at VF on the phone. He wasn't 100 percent sure what happened but said they had them around for awhile and they just updated the website and got around to selling them. Very odd. He did not know of any Yes box sets that would become available. However, when I first asked about the Yes box set he said "that will be late February" and then backed out of that, so can't be sure.

Sorry all. Was worth a punt. Apparently these were archive internal reference copies that were set to available by mistake. Interesting that they should keep so many reference copies! I wonder if they are signed and complete final units or test pressings?
