Re: Tony Palmer releases 1972 concert footage on DVD

And so the saga goes on. I received this e-mail this morning, from the person who told me they would have more information in a couple of weeks on the same day that she cancelled and refunded HugoD’s order: “Hi Wendy, Following up on this, I have been told this morning that unfortunately there is a ...

Re: Tony Palmer releases 1972 concert footage on DVD

How odd that we got different answers from the same person! I said I will wait a couple of weeks provided I can cancel then if there is no satisfactory answer. However I think it might be better to just ask for a refund and forget the whole sorry business .....

Re: Tony Palmer releases 1972 concert footage on DVD

I just received the following e-mail from Pledge Music: “Hi Wendy, Thank you for getting in touch, I have been informed this morning that we unfortunately won't have a timeline confirmed for another couple of weeks and I therefore ask if you would like to cancel your order and receive a full refund?...

Re: Tony Palmer releases 1972 concert footage on DVD

I am somewhat less happy TBH. I ordered an unsigned limited box which seemed a nice thing to have. They added almost £10 for shipping to my order so the upshot is that they have had £85 of my money for two months now with no clear idea if or when I will receive what I paid for. If it’s a rights issu...

Re: Tony Palmer releases 1972 concert footage on DVD

The latest expected fulfillment date of 26 October has been and gone and there is no sign of anything happening. I have written to Pledge Music but haven’t had a reply. I imagine they are waiting for answers themselves ......

Gazelle Book Services in Lancaster will be the UK distributor of this book, and they promised to give discount to our members. They will get copies of the books within the next few weeks. More info to follow.
Any news on this Jarkko?

Re: John Reynolds has passed away.

Very sad news. I too only spoke with him once, when he helped us obtain tickets for a high profile show (not Leonard!) after I sent him an e-mail with a simple enquiry. Lovely man and a great loss to the Irish music industry. Editing: I just remembered. I also met him at Bagel etc in Montreal last N...

Hugo: where did you buy it (who delivered it)?
This seems to be some kind of mystery.
Also Finnish libraries have recently got copies.
I got my copy from Waterstones, probably the UK’s biggest bookseller after Amazon, last November.

Re: Tony Palmer releases 1972 concert footage on DVD

I just had to go into my account to change the delivery address (I had to make arrangements for it to go elsewhere when the delivery date was put back to 28 September as we were on an extended trip to Canada then) and I see the fulfillment date has been updated to 26 October. I don’t really believe ...

Re: Tony Palmer releases 1972 concert footage on DVD

Unfortunately the 1972 concert footage (the original topic of this thread) will not be released; there is an issue with the rights. - This does not mean that we wouldn't get more live audio or video footage in the future, on official releases, but here we have again the P-word in use. Sorry to hear...

Re: Half the Perfect World - a Perfect Offering

I have had this book on order with Amazon UK since early May. Amazon are now saying early December for delivery but they have not proved very reliable with books published overseas in recent times and they want almost £30 for it so I thought I’d try Booktopia on your recommendation Greg. Sadly they ...

Re: REVIEW Leonard Cohen Is My Spirit Guide (A Celebration of Leonard Cohen)

I was sorry to miss this Jim - and other tribute and Flame launch events. A very badly timed holiday meant I left too early for the UK events and arrived to late for the Montreal launch. C'est la vie.

Sounds like it was a wonderful evening.
