Default It was my last purchase on TheMusic.com

Gents,
I want to report the story which has just arrived to me with the website TheMusic.com of which I am customer for several years. I have already ordered on this site without any problems some Classic Records LP for about 450 $. My last order on 11/11/11 concerning Classic LPs is not still delivered! The payment about 200 $ was realized the day of the order with Paypal. After a request of explanation by e-mail 11/12/11, I receive 30/12/11 an answer 'So you have not received an order yet? I will go through our paperwork and check the status ' It is the only message of TheMusic.com that I obtained, no explanation this day, but if somebody knows something..... I indeed want to listen to him
Thanks to Paypal I was able to be paid off there is a few days... shame, they were Christmas presents...

Joent, Jim, Cyril thanks....
It is for me an incomprehensible behavior unless........ they are acquired by a Frenchman?

I've ordered from themusic.com numerous times prior to being sold to acousticsounds. Once that happened, I stopped. Not sure how they can continue listing/selling titles/pressings that a majority of went to acousticsounds. Are these the 'defect' copies or something along those lines that were held back from AS purchase or AS didn't want for some reason. Dunno.

Having said that, a quick check of their latest email & a indepth look at a specific LP, it states:

"These pressings were produced before Classic Records was sold to Acoustic Sounds but were never released. TheMusic.com is very fortunate to have acquired these 200g Clarity pressings of a select number of titles. These titles will likely never be available as 200g Flat profile Clarity pressings and as such they represent the ultimate in fidelity and collectibility. The sound of these pressings is as close as one can get to the original master tapes used to cut them and will likely soar in value over time. Do not hesitate as these pressings, which were never released as Clarity pressings, are extremely limited and once they are gone they will be gone forever."

Guess that explains it -- in the meantime, I'll continue with my initial statement and refrain from making any purchases (I'm not totally convinced of their so called explanation & believe there is some BS in it to make it 'read good').

Sorry to hear of your troubles with them & hope it gets resolved quickly.

Bob

Jeff.....thanks
Probably they have no more in stock Classic Records of their former catalog but let believe to their customers that they are available by hoping to find possibly somewhere else the goods. If I had not used Paypal, I shall not probably have got back my money this day......
