Distribution for Carried AwayStarted 8 years ago by Ryan / toggle topic info
Any word on what is the best way to get the disc on the release date? Best Buy last year didn't carry it until weeks after the release.
Yeah I got this problem in the UK...
1. Pre order from hhv.de for the free t-shirt but wait a week or so after release
2. Order in store at HMV and have to go through the rigmarole of speaking to some clueless goon with hair like a show-pony and the complexion of a dropped calzone who thinks 'People Under The Stairs' is a dvd only to turn up on the day of release and face vacant stares, fruitless searches in the store-room and the soul crushing feeling of booking a morning off work to go fetch a cd that the m*therf*ckers promised to get you when they took your money but now say will take 2 to 3 weeks which is short hand for 'we have no idea' and then having to walk aimlessly round town until the pubs open so I can take the pain away with strong imported lager
3. Or keep hitting refresh on Juno on the chance they get it in on release date...
This problem does my head in everytime something drops - I live in the sticks where Morris Dancing is the latest dangerous teen dance craze sweeping the nation so its hard to get the funk round here! I have to purchase pretty much everything off the interweb and once I've clicked 'Checkout' I become some sort of frenzied postman hunting madman until it arrives. Seriously I'm unapproachable whilst my music is in transit...
I can see me covering all bases and ending up with 3 copies like I did with Fun DMC - still what better gift could you give a loved one than a P album...(give the gift of PUTS this christmas...)
Speaking of Fun DMC, just seen a pile of them in a shop in Meadowhell priced at £4.74!!!! - seriously considered buying them all just because it was a bargain but my missis talked some sense in to me...
How about Amazon?!
I've got Carried Away on CD and vinyl in my basket waiting for payday so I can order them. But I am tempted to order form HHV for the free t-shirt.
I too live in the sticks but we are yet to experience this new dance craze.
I'll keep an eye out, dont want all the youth scratching my car with sticks and bells.
I got FUN DMC from Best Buy the day of the release. Only had one copy though.
