Dear Sir Paul,
I know you will never read my message, maybe it won't even be published, yet I have to write it because I am terribly angry. I am talking about this new box set of yours, the 7" Singles. I have been spending 3 days trying to get connected to the pre-order, instead of what I was systematically re-directed to another site named tidal, which I did not care about. And when at last I got directed to the pre-order site, it was to learn that the sets were all sold out !
Meanwhile, some other buyers were obviously more lucky than me and could purchase their set(s) without any problem.
Now, just have a look on ebay : several sets are already for sale at staggering prices ( more than twice the original value). This is black market. This is a scandal. I have even seen an american seller who sold 3 sets for $1800 dollars each. This smart guy will cash over $3000 dollars benefit without moving his ass ! Disgusting. And this is all to the detriment of real fans and collectors.
If your website does not work like it should, if speculators can get several pieces when honest collectors are left aside, I am sorry to say that, but in a way you are the accomplice of that swindle. I was used to better, coming from you.
Best regards from a disappointed fan.
