so, i have done a ring around of all the record stores i can think of in melbourne. all of them EXCEPT THE STORE I ORDERED MINE FROM have had their deliveries of the box sets now, and of course they all sold out within two hours (while i was dutifully in my lecture).

it looks like it will be at least a month before there are any more available anywhere.

consult john, in picture below, for description of my feelings about this:

(john's malaise may or may not have been brought about by paul's shirtless state.)

My sympathies are with you. I can't really afford the new boxset, but I did spend a good part of the last 3 days listening to my Beatles collection on my iPod, so there is that. :) Good luck, and I hope you get your set soon!

Do you have to wait at least a month for the store you ordered them form to get their initial shipment, or is that only delayed a little bit?

If it's the former? MAJOR FAIL.

the former. total fail.
i'm trying to just resign myself to the fact that i'm not going to get my copy for some time. if i keep hoping and trying i might go a little cray (or crazier) :(

Can you order it from overseas?

i might try - will depend on comparability of price and delivery time.

Amazon UK are pretty fast, but the exchange rate with the pound is always scary. :(

We are expecting our copies tonight or tomorrow. If there are any around when I get in tomorrow, I'll put one on hold for you and send a text.

I tink it is because George has nicked his specs.

You've already paid for it somewhere else...:( I was going to suggest someone Amazoning it and then shipping it to you, but that would probably be hella expensive. Alas. I hope you can get a copy soon. It looks to be an amazing set. (I actually only own Please, Please Me on CD and 1, so this could end up being a fantastic investment for me...in 1,000 years when I have a solid job and health insurance.) :D
