It's FINALLY here.I HAVE Return of The Fabulous Hofner Bluenotes. My 1st impressions are that the earbook is fanastic.It has taken me back many years.It is beautifully layed out and to me is great value for the money I paid.I have just started to listen to the 1st CD,the book has caught my attention.It has to been seen to be believed.It is one thing looking at this on a computer the experience of having it in your hand and physically turning the pages is something completely different.To hold vinyl after all these years is strange to say the least. You will understand it when you get it.I am off now to take in this beautiful new album and see what the music is like.
Yes Chris, they beat us up bad, Amazon.uk has it listed at 29 British pounds, but with s/h it comes up to 89, (about $175!!)The US fans will be "punished" again with the "direct import" price of some $100,00!

Tina, where did you get your copy?

Are the songs on the vinyl the same as the CD's or different?

Hi Chris,Chris wrote:Hello to you,
I'm happy for you Tina. At least you could put your hands on the new album (and listen to it) at just about the European release time (Feb. 8, 2008.) I went to several stores in Warsaw and even phoned the distributor (Warner Music) to ask whether they will carry this album here. The answer was: "yes, but towards the end of the month!" The lady in charge of the rock department (who evidently overslept this title) finally told me that "if you want to you can but the box-set before or after the concert" (on February 20.) It's really strange that we're being asked to wait an extra week, or two, for the same album already available in Germany and the rest of Europe.
I've noticed that the Amazon prices quoted in different currencies are - more or less - the same for Europe (about 30,00 British Pounds or 50,00 Euro.) The US fans will be "punished" again with the "direct import" price of some $100,00!

Thank you for your kind words. I'm bitter (a little) because on several occasions, in the past years, I was able to buy Chris' CDs locally even before the official release date! For instance, on their delivery date on Thursday instead of on Monday's release date.
This time around people in charge of the distribution department, evidently slept on the job!
I'll get it from a store or at the concert (in the foyer) at the Congress Hall on Feb. 20.

I hope so. I have ordered on Monday. And 5 min ago i got the information that my copy is on the run. Hope for tomorrow....I think everybody who ordered it for the higher price before and didn`t get the copy yet, will pay the lower price?!
