So he's blaming Amazon for this. I'm appalled by his reaction - even though it's a typical Elvis one :D

I don't see this as blaming Amazon. I assume the product was recalled once the error had been spotted, but Amazon had sent some out in the meantime.

Well, hopefully they start to be sent out next week to find out. I'll be p*ssed if it's the Purse EP.

I'll be surprised if it isn't unfortunately.
Is that so surprising nowadays?

Well, that doesn't make the track exclusive to this set, or the RSD 12" tracks exclusive to that.

I'm hoping this is the other 'Purse' release mentioned on the back of the Purse 12".

Has anyone received the deluxe edition yet? I contacted Second Avenue (the distribution partner for website sales) & all they would tell me was that the label was preparing the sets for shipment. My order status still reads "pre-order payment received" just as it has since January. I understand that pressing errors necessitated the release be pushed back, and I wasn't too happy that I had to learn that here rather than receiving a notification from those who already had taken payment. Now the set has "been out" for several days & I'm basically being told, "it'll get there when it gets there." They accepted payment over 3 months ago! Sorry for the rant but I'm starting to get a little pissed.

You should be pissed. Most companies when pre-ordering merch, will NOT take your monies until the item SHIPS!! Keep haranguing them....LET THEM KNOW OF YOUR DISPLEASURE.

The delay sucks, but if this has 4 new songs and looks nice, it'll be fun and worth the wait.

If we have “collector” and “scum” set out in a Venn diagram I wouldn’t be in the middle...

... although this could be up for debate!

do we have a poll option here? i never see it much, if at all. if someone easily knows how to, please CREATE A SIMPLE POLL:

NEW NEVER HEARD or PREVIOUSLY ISSUED ELSEWHERE?

i think the sad results of the poll will bring us to our unwanted answer.
