YESSSSS! Thought I'd missed this one big grin

I had signed up to be notified and just found out about this via email. Of course after I already spent $50 to get it from Japan. Thanks for communicating so carefully about how this was sold out, Varese! frown

I'm glad other folks can get this now, though. It's a wonderful, rather underrated score and the expansion honestly fleshes it out quite nicely -- Neil S. Bulk did great work on the assembly and the liner notes are terrific.

Now that it's available, I highly recommend folks check out the Soundtrack Spotlight my colleagues Clark and David did with our friend, liner notes author Tim Greiving:

Ok, what the actual bleep Varese.

Every address I enter - "shipping not available for selected address". Not home, not work, not my neighbors... What is going on???

Your correct. I can’t order either.

Same here. Every single address I try (including those suggested by their own Google address completion plug-in) triggers the same shipping error message, so I can't order.

Maybe it's an early April Fool's from Varese?

And...sold out again.

The trainwreck that keeps on giving.

It's sold out...

10 min ago every address I enter was "shipping not available for selected address"
it seems to be the same problem at QUARTET records. I'm trying to get some cds with discount over there and it's the same as at Varese - "shipping not available for selected address". Weird.

That part at the checkout is basically just extra insurance. You have the option to go without it. For me being in Canada I've never needed to add this on and I haven't had any lost packages from SAE.

Anyway, it's amazing to me that Varese can mark it "sold out", after barely being available again for less than three hours, seeing as nobody was able to place an order from them to begin with (due to the aforementioned "invalid shipping" errors). This all feels like deliberate gaslighting at this point and Varese has lost me as a customer. They still haven't sent out my curtain call order from October yet, and they canceled City Hall from my previous order back then. It's very evident that the right hand isn't communicating with the left and whomever is left working there seems to have zero clue as to what's going on.

In the future I'll eat the cost to order Varese's CDs from Intrada / MovieMusic / SAE if it means I'll actually get the releases they put out.

Varese's owner Concord should be ashamed for their corporate botchery of this once-great label.

It's back again. Addresses still won't work.

...and gone again.

That seems to be their modus operandi.

They did the same thing to Telarc after gobbling them up in the 2000's.

You know what?

Fool me once - shame to you, fool me twice -shame to me.

So - goodbye Varese. This was my second time. I will never order anything directly from you. Even if you offer all titles for $1 and will pay for me for shipping.
