i've contacted the seller, that birkm.  linked in his last post.he has ordered three deluxe sets & has opened two,due one being for himself & the other to give to his cousin,as a present for making him acquainted to J.D.!both were the deluxe set & the third he left unopened,but it has the same bar code verifier,so it must also be the deluxe version.somewhat amusing,that rhino can send correctly abroad ,but cock's it up at home.

well iff im not wrong here, rhino have the names, addresses and amount paid by every person involved. if theres only 500 of us, and we would be the bulk of the inital first orders, why didnt they just send us an email saying sorry(without all this passing the buck bumf), and forward the missing items to those of us who said we didnt recieve them ?

I feel sorry for you guys. Has anyone listened to the music yet? Have they remastered it properly, this time? What's on the 2 CDs? Sorry if it's been mentioned elsewhere - I must have missed it when I looked at all the posts.

Edit Ok so I just saw what's on the CDs from the ebay link above.

bar code tells nothing. from the outside the boxes are identical. you have to open them or you weigh them. Deluxe is 833 gramms.

Standard ordered. Standard delivered. Damn those pesky Germans!!

Didnae realise how small the box is, which is good, it'll stop the missus whinging about my records taking up sapce in the living room.

The artwork looks alright as well. Can't wait to play em when I get home.

Woo-hoo.

Ruinedinaday said "bar code tells nothing. from the outside the boxes are identical. you have to open them or you weigh them. Deluxe is 833 gramms."

This is not true.  There is a sticker on the back of the box on the shrinkwrap.  

Adman said "The catalogue number on the spine is 5186595937

..according to the website that is the STANDARD box.

the deluxe should be 5249837837."

On the back of my box there is a sticker that says "5052498378371"

So that means I have the limited box.  And I have determined this without opening it up or weighing it.  Also, I can hear a smaller than 7" item bumping around inside when I rotate the box.  That must be the CD-Rs.

Erik was kind enough to post a link to the official Rhino explanation.  If you read it you'll see that everyone who received the correct one in the mail will also receive a bonus Peter Saville art piece, 2 CD-Rs and an extra numbered booklet in the mail.  So I will assume I will receive one of these too :-)

So who else gets double the pleasure?

Anyone heard anything from Rhino/Warners if the deluxe contents have been sent out? They were supposed to be sent out this week. The last email I received from them was last Wednesday, 9 days ago.

I accept that the mistake wasn't Rhino/Warners' fault (even though it did reflect badly on them) but the way they've handled the 'clean-up' is a mess. If I hadn't been looking at this forum or neworderonline I wouldn't have known anything about the dedicated website nolanguagejustsound.com that was set up. And they haven't sent out any more email updates since last week.
The whole thing is a joke.

'Let's talk about the only interesting piece about this thing: the Colony vid.

Just bought it on iTunes. Slight upgrade in quality from the HATYM footage but nothing crazy. A bit brighter. Pretty strong performance though.

Happy to pay 2.99 for it!'
 
Exactly!
 
I have little or no confidence in Rhino and when I saw the press release, the matter of packaging, limited or otherwise, was shrouding the fact that at the end of the day.....it was just another re-release/re-hash of already released material.
 
Consequently, I too was happy to visit i-Tunes and take advantage of the videos.  The 'Colony' vid is excellent in my book and nice also to see the cleaned up 'LWTUA' vid and 'Atmosphere too'.  The 'Transmission' performance is as we all know electric, and I am a happy man in now having a nice clean version on my i-pod.

This is getting tedious.... but has anyone received any communication from Rhino that the deluxe contents have been sent out? (apparently they have been).

I got the 1/5000 deluxe boxset with nothing missing, and now I see that due to this mistake the numbering actually goes into -500

Haven't opened the extra package with the art and bonus discs, though, but I'm guessing that I won't get extremely lucky again and score the -500 insert.

I suppose the 1/5000 is still pretty unique though, despite 500 "lower" numbers existing, it was still supposed to be the first one before the mistake.

Wow, I can't belive you got no. 1.  I thought Mr. Morris or some exec would have kept that one.  I haven't opened my box or my bonus package, so I don't know what number I have.  But at least I know I don't have no. 1 now, congrats!

Why did i bought only one deluxe set?

I think in the future some people will be very angry if they open a box for 600 USD, and maybe without the deluxe contents...

I was just happy to get the deluxe set ,after it had sold out, for about the same it would've cost to ship to the states.

And personally I really dig the set, I'm a collector but I also like to enjoy products like these. So mines opened and played, cool set!


Just the thought of paying 600 US and it turning out to be the standard makes me feel bad for someone.

Thinking about downloadingthe 'iTunes LP' version of this but having already bought these tracks god knows how many times want to check out if it is worth it first- has anybody bought it? Is the mastering/sound quality any better than Substance or H&S?

    Use the iTunes site to purchase the Colony & LWTUA Videos .
    Use Google and get a MP3 rip of this set for free ,
    The Sound from My iTunes Download of the +- Collection was not
    different from Substance in my opinion.
