box set not available?

Postby Franz » Sat Nov 05, 2005 1:36 am

Just checked all the sources for the box set listed above. Every site says now, this is currently not available. Even Amazon.de says now, the box set is not available any more.

Well, so far I have not received a cancellation letter...

In general, I wonder, what is/was going on here. Amazon offered the box as EXCLUSIV. For me this means, that Amazon would be the only one offering it. This was not the case. In general, I can hardly understand, how a record company would sell through an online retailer only and not go into any recordstores with its products.

I will check some big recordstores in Munich in the next days - AND BUY THE BOX first time I see it.

Just checked the Amazon.de and there is a new notification that the box set is shipped in the next 24 hours, but I still have not received any email that my order in amazon.de departed. Total chaos!

Box Set at amzon.de

Postby Oliver » Mon Nov 07, 2005 7:23 am

Hi there!

I also ordered the box set at amazon.de and got a message that it will take 1-2 more weeks.

Hey, I'm fine with that! I also had all CDs in my hands at record store but then remembered myself of the amazon box set.

As there are no tracks totally new to me, it is worth the waiting! :-)

I just transformed all my Yello CDs into mp3-files two months ago, now I can do that again for the first six albums! That's kind of .... what a pity!

Boxset from amazon.de arrived

Postby Oliver » Fri Nov 11, 2005 9:30 am

Hi there!

(I already posted this in an extra topic, but that was ment to be here! This was written yesterday!)

So, I got my box set from the german amazon yesterday! Surprise!Surprise!

Really a bargain! Six CDs for 50 Euro. And each CD is seperately packaged in plastic! So I started with SP yesterday, and I unwrapped CQS already this morning before leaving to work. If I can stick to one CD per day, I will unwrapp Flag on monday!

So, I took a look inside CQS, without listening to it yet. And compared to the booklet of SP I miss the opportunity to read a full review of CQS from the past. The review of SP therefore was enjoyable in total.

Hey WOW! I got them! Any1 need the old CD releases?

I got mine yesterday :D

First impressions: Only slightly modificated sound (I think it's only a little eq-correction and it's gain-optimized) ... and that's good :wink:
The bonustracks are a must-have but if you already have a YELLO vinyl-collection, you'll probably know most of the tracks.

I think if you compare them directly with the old versions there is a huge improvement. When I first listened to them I thought the same thing.
"Hmmm...These are just louder" I thought. But the more you listen you will hear things you never heard before in these songs.

Enjoy!

Small point of difference?

[quote="JonKamm"]Package for you sir!

I ordered the first two of the remasters, they arrived today, I thought Id check out the boxed set and watched "Package for you.mov" - there is a packaging difference between the Claro Que Si in the .mov version and the version I got today - on my one when you open the digipak it has the six albums on the left with the CQS icon highlighted - in the .mov version it looks like the included booklet is framed - the pictures of the albums has been cut out - a pathetic small point I know but a difference all the same.
