Just to compare:
LLL order confirmation 25. 5. 2021, 12:00 (PST)
preshipment info 26. 5. 2021, 12:51 (PST)
accepted at the post office May 27, 2021 08:24 (PST)
delivered 08.06.2021


That has been my experience too. LLL and Intrada are insanely fast. It's almost as if Jeff Johnson lives in my garage or something. big grin I had to come up with a strategy to slow down my latest Intrada order when I found out I may have to work on a day I predicted the package would arrive. Sure enough they shipped it right after my order with an expected two-day delivery window. My strategic ordering worked and it will arrive on the day I'm working from home (most likely). It's like I have two-day Intrada Prime shipping or something.

Does Varese have a new shipping partner again? I've been out of the loop for many years.

Yes, they've switched from Naxos (everything packed completely shitty and 90% probability it will arrive damaged) to some US branch of their UK partner... so it should be very well packed but seems to be painfully slow.

With Intrada they usually ship very fast (and is probably the only US store that actually shows what exactly is in stock) but I must have waited for like 6-8 weeks for their latest packages to arrive and with the new import rules starting on July 1st in the entire EU I am pretty much sticking with Music Box for my future orders. At least until there are some news and info how it all actually work...

But I did get another order in (with Battlestar live) so hopefully it will be as fast as the last one and will still arrive in time smile

Ah. Thanks. I was thinking it was still Naxos. Looks like it's Awesome Distribution. Do they do everything including pressing the CDs?

Yuck. I'm lucky to be living in the U.S. where most of the soundtrack labels are based. Don't have to worry about excessive shipping costs, longer wait times, etc.

In Transit, Arriving On Time
Your package is moving within the USPS network and is on track to be delivered by the expected delivery date. It is currently in transit to the next facility.


The expected delivery date is Tuesday , June 15th. I can say with confidence that despite the above " arriving on time" note, the priority mail shipping is , um, " fake news" roll eyes

Not that I'm tapping my feet waiting, it's just hilariously slow big grin I've got other things to keep me busy

Didn't buy anything in the sales - but I have purchased from Varese Int.. i'm very-happy with their packaging & arrival time, it took 2 days, can't be more professional than that, Thanks Varese!
