What happened to the official UK/EU shop? Far behind of US shop regarding Vinyl/CD bundle. My credit card is urging to reach my goal.

Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere, and equally if it seems negative, but is there any reason the album is so incredibly expensive on vinyl this time? There doesn't seem to be anything in the way of extras, it's single disc...? Not to mention the album itself is fairly short...

As it stands this will be the only one I don't purchase on LP, is there a standard version and this is deluxe? It's £38 on the LC store and £39.99 in my local store!

£23.99 on Amazon UK. No idea if that is a good price or not but it is significantly cheaper than the other prices you quote!

Thank you for the advice. It really does raise the question why it is so expensive on the LC store in that case, and at Piccadilly Records, and are there possibly 2 versions? I don't mind paying more for a deluxe/ltd version... Hmmmmmmm. Any light can be shed from anyone?

Can't speak for PIccadilly Records but the shop prices are always high. The CD is £18 there (plus P&P) compared with £11.99 on Amazon.

I think the reach was a man thinking he could find paradise by taking the shortcut of reaching there through women while the goal was every man have a woman.
His reach being an obstacle to the goal which he seemed to want forgiveness for and received.

Finally, UK/EU shop has updated bundle items. Just wondering that any code for forum members as usual?

Seems really unusual for Piccadilly and Norman Records (online store) to charge more than others, Norman actually has a price match deal so they will have to match others anyway. I'm guessing the supplier is charging a high cost... Rough Trade is under £30 though.

I'm going to wait for more info/release day. I feel like one version must be different from the other because I pretty much only buy vinyl and it's very rare to see such a huge fluctuation in price for a new release.

Hi

What’s happened to the lovely notebook and postcards in the album bundles for the uk?
Will I have to order them from the U.S site? I hope not. Just been stung with expensive postal handling charges on the stamps I ordered from Canada. Someone decided to send each item individually packaged incurring a £12 handling fee on three packages, one of which had an import tax of just £2.01! Although I must add I am extremely pleased with all the items especially the stamps in the album cover, they are very beautiful.

I nearly ordered from the US site a couple of weeks ago but baulked at the shipping cost. They wanted almost $23 to ship the fan bundle - with the CD, not even the vinyl - to the UK. To add insult to injury the shipping cost is taken into account for customs charges and VAT on import. I suppose I will buy it in the end but I am stamping my feet for a bit first.

I was to get a CD bundle in order to have notebook and postcard, and got shocked when the freight to China popped out. Then I tried to ship the bundle to a private transit company which has US local address. They charge USD13.25 for shipping to US domestic address... Never expect this much :cry:

Barnes about the Discount code of the European shop:
Does the unifiedheart code not work on these items? It should do but if not let me know and I will be able to fix this first thing tomorrow
Please try with this code and report here if it works of not.

It certainly didn’t work when I ordered about 10 days ago but just tried it again on a Thanks for the Dance T-shirt - nothing. “UNIFIEDHEART discount code isn’t valid for the items in your cart”.

I have this vague recollection that The Flame items were excluded from the code this time last year so assumed it didn’t apply to new merchandise.

Follow-up from Barnes:

Code is UNIFIEDHEART

Please let me get the code field added again [on Monday morning] before you order, it seems to have disappeared!
