I say he's a lucky man with a lot of money about to leave his hands.  I'm very envious.

My wife might have a different description!
Actually, I quit smoking 4 months ago and have been allowed to treat myself with some of the money saved.

 Shocked Shocked Shocked That's a big saving. How many a day did you smoke?

I stll can't get excited by this one. I have been very loyal to the Bootleg Series, buying all the deluxe editions up until now but I just don't have the appetite for so many versions of the same songs, certainly not as a repeated listen. I am sure it will be a fascinating documentary experience but one I would only manage once all the way through I suspect. Time Will Tell and Another Self Portrait are glorious well constructed listening experiences in their own right but it is the two disc version for me this time round.

Besides what I really want are the Blood On The Tracks sessions, the Infidels outtakes and alternate versions and an anthology of all the officially released stray tracks from B sides, compilation albums and soundtracks.

According to the app on my phone, I stopped 120 days ago, have not smoked 2040 cigs and have saved £714

I salute you sir! I wish there was something I could give up that was that lucrative.

Yes, well done Bill.  

I agree with you, too, Al, but the only thing I can think of that might save anything like that much would be CD buying and concert going!

I am now getting a bit concerned!
I have received an email stating that my set will not be sent until 20th Nov, but people on Facebook are saying they have already received theirs. Some have stated their issues are around the 4600 mark (it is limited to 5000).
I have received the download instructions which were part of the package, so my order has definitely been processed, so why the delay with the physical copy?
I have a horrible feeling that the next thing I hear is that it has sold out.

Maybe they're just doing them in batches and your order was sent later than those who already have it.  I hope.

My package seems to be having a bit of an adventure!
The UPS tracking shows that it left the States on 17th and arrived in Southampton the following day.
It then shows that "The receiver must pay the duties or taxes on the package" This was not entirely unexpected, but was not what I wanted to hear!
I assumed that I would be contacted with the details, but the next thing I find is that it returned to the States on the same day.
It was then sent back over the Atlantic yesterday for a little break in Germany (Cologne to be precise), and has arrived this morning at Stansted. Hopefully it will be with me tomorrow.
I am wondering if the trip to Germany was something to do with getting round the import duties or whether I will still need to pay something.

Keep us posted.  I'm curious about this.

I have had a couple of recent nightmares with packages kept by customs for two weeks, and then delays and stinging fees from the UK carrier.
Something bought from Amazon in the USA using their expedited delivery service, where you pay the customs fees up front, whizzed through, arriving long before I expected it.

I often end up buying stuff on Ebay. That shipped from China usually arrives in 2 days. Quite astonishing.

It's arrived!
Unfortunately there was an import duty to pay of £119.36 to pay. (Which means I'm not too popular with Mrs Bill!)
Mine is number 3008 out of the 5000 issued.
I may be away for a while now!
