If it’s packaged anything like their 2-CD edition of Violet Flame, the BCWYWF! EP CD might come in a separate flat card picture sleeve - which would be a nice addition to the World Be Gone singles box- kind of a ‘secret’ 4th single!

Well, there goes my donation into the Salvation Army bucket. Have to avoid that side of the street this Xmas.

Are we 100% sure that this isn't the 4th CD single just coming out in this first?

Personally, I get the vibe this was done as the 4th single, was dropped, but the Greeks are going ahead anyhow. If there's going to be a Mute/PIAS issue though, I'd like to know now.

Ditto.  I really don't want to buy this if these mixes are coming later.

This does make the Japanese edition look half-hearted in comparison.

All we need is a resurgence of the Taiwanese versions. I'm up for a copy with a blow-up version of "Emma" (the ship's figurehead).

Love it!!  

Was the special "Cowboy" edition with the blow-up ball from Taiwan? Loved the edition with fake cowhide!

Singapore, Taiwan, where else? All of those got weirder as they lobbied for export domination over the Japanese editions. While some feel they detracted from the music, I loved it. It was a great time when competition brought out the best...mainly money from our wallets. Erasure capitalism at its finest.

I would be VERY sore NOT to see an Erasure release of some kind. In fact, I am EVERY RSD when there's none. For a band that was born and grew in the age in which the shaped picture disc was in its prime, it's stunning not to see the same kind of releases like we have from A-Ha, etc. Yeah, I get most of those reissues are on bigger labels (Rhino, etc), but Mute is pressed and distributed by PIAS which makes the stuff for many of the majors already. There's no reason there's not more RSD issues. There really outta be things like A Little Respect 7" pic discs, and maybe a retail reissue of the transparent blue Oh L'amour promo 12". I think those would warrant the same kind of reissue as did A-Ha.

For WBG, a EP is a tad more risky than the retro reissue, but I'd love to see that too.

I know what you mean; they chanced it for The Violet Flame so fingers crossed they might be brave again.

Adding to your point, I’ve always been amazed no Depeche Mode RSD release ever, so far.

Be quick if you want one - just had a second mail shot saying only 50 (of the 500 run) left.

It will be interesting to see how they raise the existence of this edition in this Friday’s weekly EIS newsletter if it’s already no longer available - that might mean Richard would give clues to whether the mixes are planned to be made available by other means later (or not)?

Actually, I kind of hope this might spur Mute to change their mind and actually release this as a single. Let's be honest, we don't HAVE to hold to the three logos on the box meaning only three singles CAN exist. We know one (or even two) more will fit in it. Mute can always throw in a little sticker to add the single logo to the box with the rest for the anoraks, you know (Talking to Mute here as such a person).  

Of course, some of us who bought this might be irked if they do release a 4th CD5", but I never would be. Like hell would I EVER bemoan the fact MORE Erasure was released (unlike those who whinged their "rarities" would lose value when the EBX sets came out).

It would be rough for Richard if it's sold out well before the next newsletter, but worse if the tracks aren't released since it's seems obvious this was a slated 4th release that didn't happen.

LEARN FROM PHANTOM BRIDE!

At 20 Euros, they can keep it.  I really love Be Careful and *really* want the mixes, but I'm not buying the album again.  I guess it's mainly fatigue, but I also don't want to reward Mute for holding these mixes back.  Plus, I know as soon as I place my order that it will be announced as the next single.

This expanded edition has been promoted as featuring 6 exclusive remixes.

If as soon as they've sold out of the sets they then go and announce that they're going to release them all as a single, they will no longer be exclusive.

To do so would possibly render the claim of exclusivity to be false advertising.

I certainly would demand my money back.

Well correct me if I'm wrong but to commission 6 remixers and only make 500 available mute are either paying them peanuts making a loss or they will make be careful remixes available at a later date either on physical format or download

Sure, the mixes can be exclusive now but that means really little moving forward.

I feel pretty certain they'll be available elsewhere in the future, even if just as digital downloads.

To be honest and I'm not trying so be negative but to pay 20 euros(roughly 17 British pounds)for a CD single cos I have the album already,I'm pissed off with being ripped off after the fiasco of m2 mars last xmas and after mute had said earlier in the year about not fleecing the fans with extra tidbits with the world be gone album they go and do this ,erasure have one of the most loyal and dedicated fanbase around and I think mute sometimes take advantage of it

The people behind this item are more or less the same as for the Violet Flame Greek 2 x CD edition and it's not just a forthcoming 4th single but a special Greek release. So don't count on any of these remixes on any 4th single....just saying

I disagree wholeheartedly. There are many an example of "Limited Edition" releases subsequently released as part of later releases or in different formats on different regional labels. This was what I was getting at with citing the loathesome stance of some to the EBX sets way back when. They made quite a similar argument.

You really can't hold Mute to what a licensee claims or does. Did everyone march on Mute when Alfa released extended releases? What about when Intercord did color vinyl? Plus any implied or stated exclusivity of content was, again, made void by the EBX boxes, so did you want your money back for your Heavenly Action L12" after EBX came out?

Truly, I get how it can be annoying to some if we are to see the 4th single go forward, but I really do think it would be because of how well this did, rather than have been planned this way (at least I hope so). The news of the fourth single would have been known by now if it had been planned ahead.

I just don't feel as sore as you do, or would, right now, since I bought with this possibility in mind. Plus, we're getting a rainbow. Are you saying you wouldn't buy this for that alone???

Outside of Marsheaux, the tracklist doesn't look at all to so Greek-specific that I think it was always meant solely for this release. No, I think they released what was comissioned for that 4th single, and maybe had Marsheaux sweeten the pot if they weren't on board to begin with.

Agreed. I think these mixes were "in the can" already.

That’s my view too. These days I tend to view the offer of ‘exclusive’ tracks as a promise that these mixes etc are only available this way *for the time being* at the time of release - not as a ‘promise forward’ that they will not be made available again via other means, even quite soon. Look at OMD’s imminent ‘wash-up’ B-Sides and Bonus Tracks’ CD due in December. I bought the 3 x 12” singles bundle for this album for the sake of nice items for the collection but I didn’t think the B-side tracks wouldn’t soon be compiled in another format: they did the same bit of tidying at the end of the campaign for the last 2 albums as well. And I don’t mind, just as I won’t mind if BCWYWF does become a 4th single in the new year for the tour (not sure we will see a 4th, but a ‘Tour Edition’ of the WBG or a Record
Store 2018 mixes EP are 2 developments that I wouldn’t be surprised by if they happened).

I'm not too big to admit when I'm wrong, and I'm...not entirely certain I'm correct.  

I dug a bit more on the remix artists, and two or three are UNDO-signed. Metroland is Belgian, so I'm holding onto that.

As far as I’m aware none of the Violet Flame Greek remixes made it to another release

Not to keen about saying that at all, but there you go    ....especially not when your knowledge about Erasure is so large  


*Checks sarcasm detector*

Yeah....like "Don't buy the album yet....just wait for the Greek release"  


Frankly, this should now be a meme.

If Trump released his tax returns, UNDO would still add a few more pages.

Though I won't bet nothing on, any of these remixes will be to find anywhere but on this release, in the future

Be careful what you wish for, indeed!  I boycotted this release.

What really pisses me off is that many of us were hoping for Be Careful as a single, and we got the crappy JALL instead.  Mute sells us a CD single filled with mostly forgettable JALL mixes knowing the whole time that Be Careful mixes were in the works (which I assume have GOT to be better mixes than JALL mixes).

Like Mr First said, after throwing money after money to buy and then rebuy everything Erasure (ie, FM2M), I'm losing my taste for this money-grabbing crap.  If we get these released as a single that everyone can (reasonably) purchase, I'll get them.  If not, I'll just have to live without them.

I've never Seen the point of these import releases like the Czech release of rock me gently(reasonably priced by the way)or is there reason behind these releases cos neither country is noted for its erasure popularity(if anyone could enlighten on this much obliged)or is just mutes sinister way of driving us fans into a frenzy every time something new is released

Well the German/Czech release of Rock Me Gently was just a single, you didn't have to buy the whole album again. Though it flopped in both countries, it was well worth a try and we got some good stuff on those discs.

I don't know if it was accurate or speculation, but the idea at the time was that Rock Me Gently, with all the long mixes and long running time, was not going to be able to make the UK singles chart, so Mute let their new Czech offices release it.  Germany also got a CD single because Germans seem to get everything electronic music related!

This Greek WBG simply makes no sense to me.  My best, cynical guess is that Be Careful was considered but scrapped as a single, so someone decided to print a few CDs of the mixes, package it with the album (that by now everyone has at least 1 copy of) and charge a premium price.

I know there are many fans who, no matter what is released, are just going to open their wallet and pay whatever it costs.  I know some of you here bought this, and I'm not faulting you by any means, but I personally am just tired of rewarding this kind of behavior.  Looks like my boycott was rather useless though since obviously it sold out before even Richard could mention it in the weekly newsletter!

Just tacky.

And I have to wonder what other WBG repackagings we'll get next year around tour time!  You know they are cooking up something.

Well, I like Marsheaux, and I'm deciding to, for the moment, feel positive about being hoodwinked into laying down my cash for this.

Still, while I get your point, this is not nearly as egregious as the multiple digital editions of Electric Blue being spaced out as they were, and it's pretty on par with what the Japanese labels had done in the heyday (and still occasionally get up to) of Britpop popularity. Put simply, this niche market really doesn't exist as it did then, and most licensed labels don't attempt to do it...if they even try to license a release these days. UNDO is an anomaly here in their attempt to corner the remaining "expanded import" market when it comes to Erasure. In fact, I kind of applaud them for trying to do something so nostalgic and succeeding (Unlike other true cashgrabs like Intervention with their Wonderland Sire LP reissue). I wish I could walk into Tower or HMV and find a copy in the Imports section.

I don't know to be honest. It might be a condition of getting Undo to take on the album's greek release/distribution that small labels provide them with the chance to do something exclusive. I know it's not just Mute, 100% records (home of OMD since they reformed) agreed to a similar 'greek only edition' of their first reunion album, (the brilliant) History of Modern; that came with 2 or 3 bonus remixes (again, including one by Undo's own act Marsheaux) and that came in very nice different packaging (black sturdy slipcase sealed with a printed logo'd ribbon and a wax seal with the OMD logo on).  So I'd guess it is something like that. I guess having exclusive content helps Undo because it widens their potential sales audience up to fans around the world also wanting it. And who knows, that might make the difference between it being worth Undo's while to get it printed up and not, numbers-wise.

And I have to wonder what other WBG repackagings we'll get next year around tour time!  You know they are cooking up something.


The way Rock Me Gently was released was, I heard, Mute decided it wasn't financially worth risking good money after bad on a third UK domestic single after the first two had underperformed here quite badly (by Erasure's standards at that time), but that the album project had done OK in some continental territories (Czech Republic and a little later Germany and the Netherlands with the 4-track CD format).

The UK chart rules at that time allowed for an EP CD (the insistence on having to have a 2-track '7inch content amount' CD single as part of the formats mix came later) which could have up to 4 tracks and could contain songs other than just the A-side, but couldn't exceed either 4 tracks and 20 mins. The German and Dutch 4-track CD would have allowed for that, no problem. Then, you were also allowed a remixes CD and that had a more generous 40 minutes max run time, providing you didn't  include anything except versions of just the A-side track. You could release both and indeed, that's the pattern the UK releases of Stay with Me and Fingers and Thumbs followed. I suspect the German/Dutch 4-track would have been the UK 'CDMute xxx' and then the 4 mixes exclusive to the Czech CD (i.e. excluding the 7" mix of RMG and Chertsey Endlos) would have made up the UK 'LCD Mute xxx'.

In other words, there would have been no problem splitting the total of 8 different tracks and mixes that exist across all RMG EU formats into a permutation that was in keeping with all other 'Erasure' album singles, and keeping within the chart rules. And so I'd heard the import of (I think I was told by the EIS) 5,000 copies of the Czech CD into the UK for distribution to larger record stores like Virgin and HMV as 'Import' was a gesture to keep UK fans happy. But not to do with track lengths and    prevailing chart rules.

Also - something tells me you may well be right about there being a collectible/expanded/re-released format of the WBG album to coincide with the tour. I know nothing whatsoever by the way, so i'm not dropping hints when I say that, I don't know any - but my gut-feel says I think you could well be right on that one.

My recollection was that it had something to do with the fact that Erasure had had an unbroken string of Top 20 hits going back to "Sometimes," and that this would be preserved by not releasing "Rock Me Gently." in the UK.  "Fingers and Thumbs" only made #20, and they did manage to go one further with "In My Arms."

I remember something to this effect. But oddly enough they did a real high quality professional video for RMG and this  to me one of their best videos too.

Yes, but maybe they had made the video while preparing the release, then changed their minds.  It is a good video, though.

That's a very good question,the video for RMG was argualbly one of their finest (some are real stinkers not mentioning any names Star/Elevation) it does beg the question why spend what looks like a very big budget on a very small release?,maybe it was earmarked for a wider release?

Both Erasure and Depeche Mode have missed the boat on RSD. They have their perfect target audience just waiting for Anything- Globally!! Yes the numbers aren't large but it always keeps the hardcore fans buying from their favorite groups. As Mark mentioned already, we should have had many cool things done already. Hope they do something for 2018

I'd always assumed the RMG video was shot before they decided to scale back the planned full-scale UK release (CD, LCD, 12" etc.) to the more limited formats and countries?

I hate to be the pessimist but I’ve pre-ordered a few things from Undo and the time it takes to get from Greece to UK is usually about 3 weeks or so after release date, so i reckon we’re looking at mid January or so.

Fingers crossed this time’s the exception, though!

Not that it will help but for a fact I know several of their delays have been caused from companies who have been produced the discs/artwork.....

They should have added a North American Tour Hype sticker to the plastic wrap, then.

That sounds more like a pledge-based project.


Well they have the same principals, they met the pre order quota and then sets off to produce them.

Considering they have a track record of such releases, and know how well they do, they ought to have felt confident to commit to a run either way. This wasn't touted as "if and when we get 500 orders...".

The selling point was it was limited to 500. They could have easily sold 750 or 1000. But they set up that benchmark number for some reason. I know they did more because no one stops at 500 on a production run.

The last Greek Edition from Undo was a limited of 500.
Also Lexer had copies for sale but they seem to have not given them a sales option this time round. That may well be due to the quick sales run of the Violet Flame version and they thought well let's keep all profits for us! (Cynical but probable)

Well, I'm not too miffed, but it would have been a nice touch to have made some of the tracks available online in the meantime within those emails...of which I didn't get one.

Just sayin'.

It’s funny, this time around I was hoping the BCWYWF! disc *was* going to come in a separate card sleeve so it could be stored as an ‘almost’ 4th single in the collector’s box from JALL.

Well maybe one of you creative types here can print up some fan-made sleeves for BCWYWF, and we'll get Dima to print up half-assed CDR copies for those of us who didn't get it.  Boom!  Our 'almost' 4th single!

Kidding, kidding!

To think I typed that whilst full of hope.

A post on the UEC states the cd won’t be out now until 15th January I’ve emailed Undo but as yet have had no response but this is apparently a snippet of an email sent to a fan.

“The truth is that  our typographer is changing the  delivery date ,day by day
We used the digipack template that Mute provided us ( they designed the artwork)
But this template and the  outercard was not compatible with our templates and the typographer had to adjust all from the beginning

Those will be  delivered to the Undo Records warehouse on January 15th   and Cds will be out for delivery the same day”

Again, no downloads for those who ordered.

Have to say, that should leave a bad taste in the mouths of everyone who's ordered.

If not the tracks, since it's a printer issue, they could add an extra lyric booklet or something. Only appropriate.

Today is supposed to be the (3rd) release day so in theory nobody has heard them until CD arrives in the next week or so.

AGAIN, that something should be offered in compensation to those who ordered GOES WITHOUT SAYING...except I needed to.

C'mon UNDO. Make with the MP3s and the added paper goods already.

I’ve been assured by Undo Records that all of the UK orders of the Greek Edition of World Be Gone were sent out on 15th January I assume all other orders would be despatched same day.

Hmm, wondering now: Did Paul (Taylor) work with Paul (White) when he (White) was working as Me Company on the Wild! art? I just wonder if Paul (Taylor) is kinda adept at forging his (White) cursive style, or if he (Taylor) did it in the first place.

Still awaiting this item,a reply has been put up on FB that these were delivered to the office and posted 18th jan which is 3 days after I was assured they were sent out! Undo your customer service is appalling





Their full reply as posted on FB-

For those asking about the 2 CD Greek Edition, I had a reply from Undo Records :

Dear  Joseph

The truth is that  our typographer was changing the  delivery date ,day by day
We used the digipack template that Mute provided us ( they designed the artwork)
But this template and the  outercard was not compatible with our templates and the typographer had to adjust all from the beginning
Those was  delivered to the Undo Records warehouse on,January 18h   and we started sending them to their destination from the same day and we finished the service on Thursday 24/1.Please allow 7-14 days for delivery
We thank you (again) for your patience and feel sure the cd you’ve ordered will be worth the wait.
Happy New Year!!!

I have to say, this is a horrendous time to have money paid out for something not yet in hand; what with recent ticket purchases, new album, and merchandise offers. Given the glut of Erasure items to buy right now, not having fulfilled our orders, especially after repeated promises otherwise, is really crossing the line.

Obviously, having failed to keep those repeated promises, it does fall upon them to assuage any buyer's remorse here and offer something as compensation. That is, if they ever want us to commit to buying another edition like this; which frankly might be a lost cause for some.

You've seen I've suggested several things here which are within their means, and, in hindsight, are barely even compensatory, and even those haven't even been seen as entertained. They simply reiterate the original product as paid for (actually, that's not even true now), will be shipped. That's really deplorable.

I never thought there would be a company tied to Erasure that I would hold in the same regard as Pledge (even Intervention wasn't as bad), but that idea is clearly one UNDO is willing to embrace. Shame on them.

That's fully justified. UNDO should have their Mute license reevaluated.

That said, I'd hate for the death of this resurrected format to come out of this. Having current Mute-licensed labels release their own exclusive editions as many did in the 80s and 90s is a beautiful thing. Still, UNDO is the one to have jeopardized that; not the wronged fans.

Well, mine has just arrived (strangely, with an Undo records address label with a UK address and posted within the UK - not, as with my previous orders, sent from Greece and covered in Greek postage stamps).

Am just about to give the remix CD a spin.

But - get ready for this - the remixes EP disc sits in a nice tri-fold (sometimes called '6 panel') digipack with a clear plastic tray glued into the middle section. And that sits in a nice slipcase with the album and mixes EP track listing on it.

But the WBG album CD can't slide inside it to join the mixes CD - the slipcase isn't wide enough to hold both! So it just has to sit separately 'next' to the mix CD-in-slipcase. Bit strange.

Will update on the mixes soon!

Quoted from Gareth Pugh
Well, mine has just arrived (strangely, with an Undo records address label with a UK address and posted within the UK - not, as with my previous orders, sent from Greece and covered in Greek postage stamps).

Am just about to give the remix CD a spin.

But - get ready for this - the remixes EP disc sits in a nice tri-fold (sometimes called '6 panel') digipack with a clear plastic tray glued into the middle section. And that sits in a nice slipcase with the album and mixes EP track listing on it.

But the WBG album CD can't slide inside it to join the mixes CD - the slipcase isn't wide enough to hold both! So it just has to sit separately 'next' to the mix CD-in-slipcase. Bit strange.

Will update on the mixes soon!

G


It’s a nice Edition but piss poor in its execution,all this effort to make a special trifold cover onoybto then just add a normal copy of the album like they did last time.
Plus the unique rainbow art isn’t used at all.

What happened with this?-

I've just noticed the mixes digipak has a 'pocket' on one side, so I suppose you could stick the album CD in that, slide your album booklet into the outer slipcase, and have a 'whole package' that way (and just sling your spare album cover).

Halfway through the remixes and what I've heard so far is pretty good actually! Mostly honouring the melody and vocals of the original but with some new twists.

Precisely why they didn’t do this in the first place is beyond me.

Right, on my second go round through the remixes of BCWYWF!

Got to say - of all the WBG tracks that got the remixes treatment - I think this might be the strongest/most high-quality batch of remixes out of any of 'Love You to the Sky', 'World Be Gone', 'Just a Little Love' and 'Oh What a World'. Really melodic, no dull autopilot mixes with little of the original melody, arrangements/sounds or vocals of the original. Instead, in the main, what you get is a more 'true-to-the-spirit-of-synth-pop'/early Mute treatments.


[Spoilers follow - sorry, I couldn't work out a way to hide this next bit]


Lacquer Remix, when it gets going, is like a slightly dark n moody electro-disco belter. Really good. One to get up and dance around to!
Paint a Rumour Remix by Marsheaux - classic Marsheaux really, which is v good - like early-post-Vince era DM, very melodic and intricate
Tareq Remix - a bit more contemporary electronica, but still full vocal and with proper tune/chord pattern intact (so, not just 'untz-untz-untz' autopilot EDM)
Eliot Remix - probably the most far-removed from the elements of the original song, but still quite good. Slightly dark pumping house. Feels longer than its 3 minutes, but in a good way
Fotonovela Remix - really beautiful - lovely additional melodies that really complement Vince's original work. Almost symphony-like. One to sit down and savour.
Metro land's Mono-Poly Remix - slows the pace down a bit, somewhat more mid-tempo but again really nice melodies and full vocal/full tune




On the whole, well worth getting (and waiting) for. Some of these are so good, I'd be very surprised if at least some of these don't get a wider release elsewhere, be that a standalone download EP via the likes of iTunes, or a Record Store Day release, or maybe on a World Beyond single (if there is one).

I tend to doubt it; at least compared to TVF. There was much more hoopla about this album, and this was reported to have sold out more quickly than what I recall of their TVF release.

A mystery box with more TVF Greek CD were found months later and put for sale.

That would be the final straw here for some, what with their "Only 50 Left" tweets about this one.

Quick skip through, and some favorites so far:

Paint a Rumour > Fotonovela Remix > Metro land's Mono-Poly Remix.

First two really add and don't diverge from the essence of the original track. Actually almost a little Goldfrapp-y in a way. Really works. Last is a nice retro synth sound but less smooth.

Gareth i must also mirror your comments im loving all of these mixes. Undo have done a good job,but the execution of the project is debateable.

Also to point out that my CD was posted in the UK on 26th January and arrived the day after. Maybe the bulk of CDs were posted from Greece earlier to be reposted in the UK?

Have to say, the Metroland's Mono-Poly is a very interesting remix, my favourite for now - the chord progression is a bit weird though. Need these in FLAC, damn!

I swear...UNDO sent me the SAME email, as posted in this thread weeks ago, YESTERDAY.

Mute...I hope you're watching this. You know I'm a lover, and not a moaner (well, in other contexts...), but I am incensed by this. That's a pretty good gauge of how poor the fans are being treated here. We're generally a mild-mannered lot due to the soothing effects of your artists, so you should take this as rioting in the streets.

i have been in contact with Undo 3 times already the last 2 months

OH,BOY i don`t know where to start,oh wait i copy the mail and you can judge by yourself




Thank you for ordering the Erasure-World Be Gone Greek Edition CD! We’re writing to let you know that orders have been delayed slightly by late delivery of the tri-fold digipack remixes Cd package

The truth is that  our typographer is changing the  delivery date ,day by day
We used the digipack template that Mute provided us ( they designed the artwork)
But this template and the  outercard was not compatible with our templates and the typographer had to adjust all from the beginning

Those will be  delivered to the Undo Records warehouse on January 15th   and Cds will be out for delivery the same day

We thank you (again) for your patience and feel sure the cd you’ve ordered will be worth the wait.

Happy New Year!!!

George and Nick xxxx

This is a real nightmare,communication between Undo and the people buying their CD has been appalling especially not only with th non communication as to buyers and the ever changing release date but this “we sent out CDs” comments that have been ambiguous to say the least. Saying the CDs had been sent out to the UK on a date that when we received them had only been posted the day before in the UK,what thy should’ve said is that the CDs have to be shipped to the UK before being posted on. That would’ve made all the difference,in the case if the overseas non UK buyers ho knows where thy have been sent from?

It's quite disgusting now. They have been shamed on Twitter, even with Mute having acknowledged the complaints, deemed the matter unacceptable, and promising to investigate, but UNDO has not replied; not even to Mute's own comment. One can easily imagine UNDO staff holing up in some cave somewhere as if this will blow over somehow. It won't.

We paid good money for this. Money we could have spent on other merchandise or concert tickets; not to mention food and rent. The average Erasure fan, really the average fan of any artist, does not have the wallet of a Bill Gates.

Even if we all received our outstanding orders this very moment, we are still deserved recompense for the treatment up until now. It's quite unacceptable.

Frankly, I wouldn't begrudge anyone contacting PayPal or a credit card issuer requesting a chargeback of funds sent to UNDO right now, and I have to wonder how many have already done so. "UNDO" seems ironically apropos in that context.

I didn't buy it (and now I feel myself a bit lucky) but IMHO who paid via paypal could ask a refund for item not sent and win the claim quite easily, considering that you paid around 4 months ago...

This is a very tricky situation as to what to de,firstly after such a long time you could get a refund from PayPal. Then you have two outcomes,either you get a refund and no CD or you get a refund and if Undo have said what they had promised you may also at some point get the CD!
It could also go the other way,if you cancel and they havnt sent it,that's probably it for getting CD.
Also if all copies were indeed sold and Undo have no spares at all,how can they replace undelivered items?,make a new run?,which would fulfil fans desires but also diminish the 'limited release' of the original.

It's bad really that we (many of us) haven't received these items thats for sure, but I've bought loads of items from UNDO since I collect also Marsheaux, and I've always got what I've paid for....I'm use to long delivery time also from UNDO....not that it's ok, but I have downloaded the tracks now from youtube and I'm in no hurry actually......still it's not ok with this long delivery time, but with these tracks out on YT, I'll only get mad if the item won't be delivered.....maybe my patience is longer than most people, but I buy loads of items these years and the post service is bad now and then

i've also bought many cds from undo over the years-marsheaux, and have never had a problem.  But they do take a while to get the CDs.  Hopefully this time is no different.  All i want it the CD. but is frustrating waiting.

Maybe if they get to do another limited album for the next original Erasure album then maybe they should think about shipping all the CDs to the UK and posting them out from here as the Greek postal service seems to be very unreliable to say the least.

So, you're saying the ones that were posted from the UK already only shipped within the UK?

I'll here come up with an example from the real life  

I did order a CD 22/2 from Attica, Pallini Greece and a 12" vinyl 26/2 from Athen Greece

They both have arrived here on my address in Denmark today

No excuse for slow Greek postal service I should say

I remember from the earlier post; it was why I asked what I did.

To put it another way: You believe the ones being sent from the UK office are only being shipped within the UK?

Ah, that's certainly an overland route if it's going via surface. I wonder if German/French/Spanish folks are getting them shipped direct from Greece as well. If you hail from those areas, and receive it, please tell us where it shipped from.

Anyhow, if so many went to a UK office for UK distribution due to being overseas from mainland Europe, then one would assume that US or other orders from other continents be done the same with some regional fulfillment company. If not, then it's incomprehensible. Even PledgeMusic did this (badly, which is becoming comparable now)

Right now, I feel they are making up for their shortfall by skimping on shipping fulfillment here, or are sending them out as produced. Either way it remains unacceptable; most especially UNDO's attempt to ignore the situation as if all is well.

Bruno (of VinceClarkeFanpage.de / @VinceClarkeFP) just got his in Germany from Greece (Airmail):



Since it's airmail from Greece to Germany, it can't have been too long, which seems to indicate they went out recently rather than that they have been lingering in transit.

I'm glad that Bruno received his today.  It's all a bit odd, especially as today UNDO records has posted on their Instagramm account a post with evidently a picture of the release.
I commented on that post  asking when I would receive mine.  Im waiting for a reply

I have been ordering for several years with UNDO records and they always delivered, albeit with some delay.  But never ever had I had to wait this long for something from them to be delivered, and never before did they not reply to an email request. I only sent one on 25th January.

Given your proximity, I would hope you get yours today or tomorrow in light of Danish and German deliveries, but I don't expect anything. Good luck!

Alright, the postmark on Bruno's mailer does say the 24th, and it came from Greece. Mark's came from Middlesex and was posted the 18th.

The last email I received said the timeframe was 7-21 days from Jan 24th, so Mark got his early, and likely because they were more on the ball with domestic distribution.

The thing is...aside from the fact it's been over 21 days (the biggie), how long does airmail for one CD take from Greece to Denmark or Germany? I'm almost wonder if five days might be the answer, and the "24" in the postmark on Bruno's copy is February.  

Alright, that may be pushing it. Still, this is crazy. Anyone know their drachmas? Does the postage on Bruno's copy look right for airmail or surface?

Look at what UNDO is doing to me. I'm checking Greek postage rates.

Never doubt the gambler, they never press 500, there is always that " Oh, look we found another box with 300 inside that mysteriously was under some other box in our warehouse" St Erienne is the worst culprit of this, they must have the most disorganized warehouse ever.

how long does airmail for one CD take from Greece to Denmark or Germany? I'm almost wonder if five days might be the answer, and the "24" in the postmark on Bruno's copy is February.  


Quoted from devoleb
I'll here come up with an example from the real life  

I did order a CD 22/2 from Attica, Pallini Greece and a 12" vinyl 26/2 from Athen Greece

They both have arrived here on my address in Denmark today (1/3)

No, I was quoting Mike about St. Etienne. They sent out another email about "finding" more stuff.

Although thanks to Danger for the link as well!

Dear, oh dear. That does seem like the 24th might have been February, although UNDO says January.

Anyone who received theirs from Greece have a clear postmark saying January?

Ah, but you just narrowed down that possibility with your testimony.

If actually sent out (as airmail) at the end of January, it's less likely so many Europeans would only be getting them around now, wouldn't it?

The only other overarching issue that I can think of that might cause all shipments to be this delayed despite being posted in January, is the possibility of a customs issue that held them up from actually leaving Greece. However, if it's that, UNDO would have learned of it by now and ought to be telling us.

Hehe.....don't know about that....I meant it could be that they have mailed out a first batch (to UK) to hide that not all items were produced for mailing out all in one time......I think the production time were delayed several times....just me thoughts

If you mean prior to that promised January 24th post date, then I'm with you, but since...well, then they have been even less honest if that's so.

Dunno what did happen in Greece but things are delayed and thats a fact.....They always deliver their stuff (often with delay though) but this time it's weird since some have received their items (UK fans) and some (the rest?) hasn't. And with all this unstructured messages and loads of missing info it's not looking very serious thought I know they are.

I might be more pissed off if the tracks were not available on youtube  

Due this I'll still buying from UNDO in the future  

....anyway I expect my copy to be here tomorrow or Tuesday (fingers crossed)

You seem to be giving them a benefit of the doubt that just isn't that justifiable when looking at their most recent conduct.

Oh, I understand you're factoring in prior experiences, which haven't been great either, but everyone agrees this is much worse. The initial claims of delay due to the printer were ones some didn't accept, but I was willing to. It was after they had acknowledged that issue, and THEN shifted the blame to the postal system that made me waver in my faith in them. Then not fulfilling shipments in the timeframe they gave...that eroded what left there was. I think I've been rather fair in my judgement up to that point.

What is most egregious, is their second sale (one that didn't come unexpectedly to some) that wasn't postponed until the majority had received their copies, and done "on the sly" as if almost not to attract the attention of the already dissatisfied customers...if not Mute as well. That was very much the twist to the knife already in our collective backs.

Quoted from devoleb

I have to say, I wouldn't be making such a statement in your position; not knowing how many are still left without. I'd have waited.

Quoted from devoleb

While I'm not certain you understand how so many feel right now, I wouldn't wish our misfortune on you. I do hope you get your copy as soon as possible.

Well I have to, since I collect 'Marsheaux' stuff, and thats always via UNDO  

...anyway Tin, we have the same thoughts mostly, and what will be very interesting is if Mute will cooperate next time with UNDO

Oh, having to deal with them is something I could understand when speaking of Marsheaux. I didn't want to deal with Pledge for WBG, but they had an exclusive on the Ultimate Bundle, and I was forced to. Your response with a smilie almost looked like an endorsement, though.

Got the Greek Erasure lot too now....finally.... I ought to say  

Maybe said before, but weird they've made a seperate cardsleeve for the remix disc with the album tracklist printed on the back and then just added the normal EU version CD album sealed so you have two items.....it really looks like something were gone totally wrong when they have produced this set....looks like a shortcut way of doing this....anyway it's nice to finally have the piece

That’s what I said,a great package badly done.
They could’ve added a 2nd CD holder and slid the booklet from album
Into card sleeve job done,but no (we could slide the cd and booklet into the front cover if we wanted and throw the album cover I’ve not tried it though so can’t guarantee that would work)

.. I finally got it today!!!

2 odd things though:
- one can't see a clear stamp, so no date on it - so they must have used very cheap ink..
- the design is strange, i think they messed it up a bit (and then decided to just add the standard WBG cd version package).

In the end, I'm happy, but I would not mind working for them to give them good design advice and clear communication instructions

I hope that all of those that follow this thread get theirs soon too!

So how come all these US fans are mainly still waiting yet an order placed last week using the secret link and it takes one week to arrive!

Just heard from another fellow New Yorker (a Long Islander) that they got theirs yesterday.

Well, we know I'm not getting mine today. Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

So, if I understand you correctly, next time we all ought to wait for a "secret sale" of excess stock of a title that supposedly wouldn't have been produced but for pre-orders.

I think I might mention you to Jonny. You have a future in writing science fiction.

I got mine this weekend in California.  I never got any shipping email I ever saw.  

This release is really strange....  A cd single wrapped in a WBG slip case with a standard cd release thrown in for good measure, though it doesn't go in the slip case. The packaging of the CD single seems nice enough, but the cd art itself, looks wrong.  It's all variations on puke yellow, completely illegible.  I can't imagine it was designed this way.  I haven't listened to it yet, not even sure I will, as I"m so disappointed in the way this whole thing was done.

...and still not a clear postmark. Really, we could say they were all sent in February and they've outright lied about when they shipped them. Please. We have PROOF in this thread of a one-week receipt after ordering.

I don't know how anyone can trust them again; I certainly won't. If by some miracle they can still release Mute-licensed exclusive editions, and there's something of value to them in content, I will seek them out by any other source; even if it takes longer to obtain at a similar price.

Alright, my suffering is over. Well, no, that would be too positive an outcome. It just can't be immaculate; can it?

Stunning lack of care. My package was so large you could see it had been folded in half at one (or several) point(s) along the way.

Only adds insult to injury. Undo really undid themselves on this project. It will be really tough to gain faith with them again.

You seem to be keeping the door open more than I am.

Truly, I would hate if them losing their license meant NO other label would try to commission such projects. I actually like the mixes here too. Believe me when I say I stopped and considered every time I have vented my spleen over this. The concept, and quality of content is wonderful. It's the manufacture and fulfillment that is atrocious; so much so, it ends up outweighing what is good about these projects.

Wanting it to turn out well is what had me being an early victim here in this thread. I willingly threw myself into the volcano without much prodding, and despite the track record of their TVF fulfillment and tactics. I wanted to support a project of this type, and wanted to believe what was wrong before was a fluke. It's not. It was an aperitif to fiasco.

Look, I'm glad we did have the German and Japanese 2 disc sets, but there wasn't anything added to those not available elsewhere, and neither regional label commissioned new remixes. That UNDO did that was why this ought to have been special, but they failed to deliver on all the work put into it, and twisted the knife further by declining to address it as long as they did, and still not honestly.

To gain faith with me, means falling on their sword and admitting to all which we already know, and offering something beyond just trying to get it right next time. I don't expect that, so I expect this was my last purchase from them.

They should have never committed to date if they did not start production on them. It would have prevented this fiasco

No FRAGILE nor HANDLE WITH CARE label either. I mean, you can even write that with a marker if you didn't have a label. They didn't give even one damn about what we got, did they?

I wonder how many others have received damaged copies now.

Oh boy...just noticed UNDO lied (again) and sent the item as a GIFT. Now, you see that a lot with cheap junk trinkets coming from China sometimes, as they know they can get away with it, but this was a mass mailing of a Mute-licensed album from Erasure, and UNDO is literally breaking the law doing it. Stunning.

Everyone go look at their customs label to make sure this is no fluke.

Here's mine, and, in contrast, the Mute WB bundle from Lexer. HONEST. REPUTABLE. LEXER MUSIC.

In 35 years of dealing with many postal services around the world ( in developed countries )- Greece is by far the worse in the world.

I think it's great Pughie shared the "secret link" to order a copy, but I still have a hard time stomaching that price tag (26 Euros = 31 USD) for, basically, a single.  Though I want it, I just can't do it.

I'm also a bit put off by Undo's marketing strategy here, which just tries to driving up demand by making it seem more limited than it is.

First it was: "limited to XXX copies - preorder now"
Then: "ok we've got some more, here's a secret link" when some like Tin Soldier still hadn't received their preorders
Now: "ok now only a few left, here's another secret link, limit 2 per person!"

In the end, I do like the fact that people who originally missed out could get a copy later, but the whole project really rubs me the wrong way.  BCWYWF! should have just been a regular single.

Yes one single. The album in fact looked like just a stand alone album anyways. I was one that missed out and managed toget a copy on the link and get it one week later. I always knew this was never going to be a limited pressing with Undo track record.
