My order for "Essential" cancelled!

Recommended Posts

I spoke with Tim ( who was NOT HAPPY about the situation ) and he assured me that everyone who pre-ordered it through Amazon will get it by March 25th. He said you will get an email from either Amazon or from Sony confirming it.

If we all 'double down', maybe it will become a gold record!  I always buy 2 of 'berries/Eric's albums anyway...

My business is on track to break-even well sooner than I had projected (fingers crossed as it´s not a done deal by any means).  When/if it happens I can justify spending some crazy money so I may celebrate by buying a bunch of the Essential CDs and passing them out for free down here in Panamá. To my 2 employees, customers, service providers, dealers etc etc.  

 

I´d be doing the world a favor by introducing them to the world´s best music, that´s for sure. 

 

It might be fun!..

:-)

Well I know that I have done my fair share in the past and with Amazon correcting the problem I will have three Essential CD's without leaving my house. For a group that put out four albums, I have a whole box full of Raspberries CD's and several copies of some of the solos as well. When moving several years ago, someone stole my albums out of the truck, every last one and I had a lot of them (not all Raspberries).  I hope the jerk wad enjoyed them.

As I expected, I have a problem with delivery of my order from Amazon. 
Today I received a call from Moscow, the delivery company UPS. Manager told me that they already got my order but can’t ship it to Crimea because of difficult current situation that (maybe) will be changed in a 2-3 month. I was proposed to choose another city in Russia they can send it. I told them they can send it to my friend in Vladivostok (much FAR but SURE because we used this way several times getting order from other internet shops).
One hour later, I get second call and manager said me «Sorry, we CAN NOT ship to Vladivostok too».
I was told to choose some address only in Moscow. They gave me 10 days. I don’t know what to do.
I don’t want my order to be returned back to Amazon.
You can’t help me. I told you this story without any purpose.
Have to find someone in Moscow or try to convince them to send anyway by usual mail.

I bought it on eBay from Sound and Vision planet. 14.99 and free first class shipping. Bought it two days ago and I have it my hands right now. He's shipping his product from Wisconsin. The package is remarkable!

Bernie, 

I must say that my situation is NOT TERRIBLE in Crimea but very terrible in the rest of Ukraine.

There are the temporary issues in Crimea that are always observed in the transition period. 

.....................................................................................................................................

It is «The Long And Winding Road» that leads Essential to my door))))))))))))))))))))))

I did not get my Essential because I had to cancel my order. It was returned as Undeliverable.

I did not want to search someone in Moscow who can resend me my package. Tried to change delivery address to Vladivostok where my friend lives who could resend it to me. But delivery company did not accept the address change. They said that I can cancel my order and make it from the start to any address I want (except Crimea for a while) after returning the first one. But it’s already impossible to change delivery address after my order is done even if I ask. I was surprised  by illogical rules of delivery company!

The client asks to send the order to Vladivostok where THEY HAVE AN OFFICE and they refuse! The one and only reason of refuse was the fact that initial address was another.

But I have a friend who promised me her Essential! She is so kind to me. Can’t wait to see it! But have to wait more and more.

..mine shipped yesterday!.....

 

....the mechanics here are I have the vendor ship to an address of a forwarding company in Miami, who forwards it to a store 100 yards from my
apartment in Panamá...for like $4.  Great deal.

 

P.S.  I´m a decent swimmer.  Maybe I should quit what I´m doing and take up swimming across the Pacific to Japan, Vladivostok etc. ...

....delivering Eric Carmen Essential cds as my new fulltime gig??

Don't fear!!

 

Our "little technology chick" won't be denied access to the cds & awesomely collectible art insert.

 

I'm just waiting for the go-ahead re mail package traffic to bundle up and send E's "ABSOLUTELY Essential" to Larisa.

 

:)

Mary Ellen, many thanks! You are the best!

Now I think we have to risk or we will wait for too long. Go-ahead is right now!

Love? I know what it means.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

James, the song is my favorite too. Is it your favorite because it’s about freedom? 

"Turn me loose from your hands

Let me fly to distant lands"

(BTW the lyrics by Bernie Taupin. Elton wrote only music for his songs).

We need to move to sir EJ thread if it exists here in Come Around And See Me. I can talk about EJ music hours and hours!

Yes, exactly Larisa....I´m a freedom freak and the song celebrates liberation and exploration of new worlds, etc.  Stuff that speaks to me. - of course expressed brilliantly
by Bernie Taupin.  And the harpsichord on the original (from the "Empty Sky" album)....so great.

 

I can talk about his music for hours too....at least the stuff between 1969 and 1976 (his genius period, IMHO).

Cayennegirl, <

 

Thank you so much!

I spoke with the local postal goddess and she assured me that everything will be fine! :-)

 

I hope I wrote my changed country and zip-code correctly.

Week or two ago I tried to create the account in PayPal that eBay requires. And again...

My country was defined as "Russia" and my phone number must be +7 ХХХ ХХХХХХХ thereby.

But my number remains +38 ХХХ ХХХХХХХ 

My registration was failed. I could not take part in Garage sale.

My dear Larisa,

If by some stroke of luck, I would have won any collectibles at the 'Garage Sale' I would have given them to you! Hoping your postal and pay pal situations will be resolved soon.

You are an amazing person whose perseverance I greatly admire! Not to mention a beloved member of ec.com AND a terrific friend <3

Certain I wrote in the postal code you gave to me and my local postal goddess typed in the address for customs too.  Everything should be fine, however it will take a few weeks under normal circumstances.  Hang on!!

 

Hugs,

M.E.
