FINALLY shipping...

When we last spoke, the final "Perfecta" CD delivery was to have been made on July 12th, with shipping beginning on July 16th.  That was the plan - and then a ghost in the machine decided to get involved, and the CDs quite literally vanished mid-shipment from the manufacturer to us. Our manufacturer pointed us to UPS, and UPS just said they'd have to try and trace what happened to the delivery...but it could take 10-15 business days.  Our manufacturer said if UPS did in fact lose the CDs, they'd file a claim, and then press the CDs again ~ but that I'd still have to wait 10-15 business days for UPS to conduct their trace, and then another 14 business days for the claim to process.  Meanwhile, these CDs were supposed to have been shipping on July 16th...to you.

The good news (and thank God there's some good news) is the CDs were found. They claim an "automation error" had stranded the shipment somewhere in New Jersey.  Once they located them, they overnighted them to our offices, and they were delivered last Friday.  They would've shipped last Friday (believe me, we're as eager to get these shipped as you are to have them), but they came in late in the day as I was heading to Nashville for the Dakota Motor Company, The Choir, and The Prayer Chain performance.  It was a great show, and always great seeing old friends and even meeting some of you for the first time.  Yesterday, I made the drive from Nashville back to Chicagoland, and as I type this, orders are being filled.  CDs and Shirt/CD orders will ship First Class. Any order with Vinyl will ship via Media Mail. 

Thanks for hanging in...

      Same boat as Kent. Any information as to when it shipped etc...would be welcomed. I believe Lo-Fidelity asks 21 days before inquiring about a package which is reasonable with MEDIA MAIL. Just ready to hear this is all! ; 0

      Good news! Mine arrived!

      Bad news! Post office trashed it . . . Who do I contact re: replacement?

      Thanks!

      Taking a break from listening through my Aretha Franklin collection to listen to Perfecta… Sounding good.

      I am not sure that you have a good shipping address for me. Who should I contact about this?

      Woo Hoo! Thanks Jeffery! Been there and done that. Had a package that went from the west coast to the east coast and back and took 11 days to be delivered. So I can sympathize with you.

      Its Al Good!
