Thanks Bill, yes I am sure you are probably right.

It is just unusual, given SOS' usual ultra-prompt service, that despite ordering on Wednesday, neither of us have even received a 'package dispatched email', where several others, who can only have only ordered the same day, have already received their copies on Friday or today. :(

Hey! Quit rubbing it in guys! :lol:

I still waiting for my copy to arrive, but I see from the track list that "Spiny Norman Knocking at Your Door" did not make it onto this cd. Sigh. One of these days...

And Andrew 'Preview' was superb as the foil for their gags on that particular sketch. Must've been hard to keep a straight face! :lol:

They were great though, weren't they? I saw them live in Blackpool when I was relatively young. It may have been at one of the pier theatres, or maybe in The Winter Gardens. They were terrific in that environment too. Amazing how some of their humour still holds up after so many years...a sign of real artistry. (And real talent writing for them.) :) But I digress...this is a 'Sparkle Machine' thread... :wink:

As usual you are all whingeing about waiting two days........ think of we poor fans in the land of OZ who will wait ten days at least and may not even get our copies by Christmas........ Aussies should have theirs sent a week before you Pommy Bastas.......

Bill's latest are always worth the wait though.........Ho Ho Ho..... :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Same story for me, having ordered on the 11th. With any other company I wouldn't be concerned but they are normally ultra-prompt. I did get an "order processed" email a couple of days ago, so hopefully this means posted.
