sadly, they are a half assed company AND EC should be kept abreast of their minor league status. i bought LP from AMAZON and it is firmly in house 2 and a half months already. letting you wait FOUR MONTHS beyond release date, is just unacceptable

I finally received mine a couple weeks ago here in Seattle. It spent over a month with no tracking update like it had been lost in the mail, which led to multiple emails to Second City noting my concern about a limited item I bought through them seemingly not arriving. Granted, it wasn't their fault and it did, surprisingly, end up getting here, but them not bothering to respond to any of my emails is definitely on them. Just awful customer service, and I'll pass on limited editions or bundles in the future if I can avoid them by going to another merchant.

The hole in my No Flag single is rather janky, too. I haven't been able to test it yet, but the QC leaves something to be desired, for sure.

I'm sorry you all are still having trouble!

Too many versions, just like McCartney did to stem sales. Of course, it's or choice to buy or not.

How many variants are there now, 8?

'stem'? Maybe it has that effect on some people ...
