The postman left a notice in my mailbox yesterday.
I went to the post office this morning but it was too early, I will try again this evening. :wink:
Shipping from the US to France seems incredibly faster since a few weeks.
I cannot explain why it was so slow before nor why it has been improved ...

No, I think it's awesome too. It def caught me off guard. I was gearing up for that OSFA-type opening, and then whoa...huh?! "fucked with my head" indeed.

Well it's here. Found it in my mail box last night. It came with the Baby Snakes CD to replace the one that disappeared from it's case a few years ago.

As per usual, the cristal cases of both cd's were toast. They could never survive a trip through the mail system "protected" by a tiny little bubble enveloppe. Broken, splintered and little plastic pieces all over the fucking place. Luckily the discs and the booklets are intact.

Inca roads "is fucking my head up" majorly...and I love it.

Ruth's notes are simply awe inspiring.

Thanks ZFT (do something about the shipping please). Thanks Ruth.

Received RbP x 2, RT#2 and aToHE (cd) today, all jewel cases shattered, but the contents appear to be unscathed.....stuck at work so unable to do any listening for a few hours....Roxy liner notes look pretty interesting (under a magnifying glass)

Funny.
I waited for a long time due to the RbP delay, and received almost the same order as you just did (only 1 RbP).
You will see this makes a lot of George Duke at once. :wink:

Mine has still not arrived. Probably been nabbed by customs as I ordered Camo, Road Tapes 2, ZBP & Token OST together, that'll add another £30 or so to the the cost when the fukkers actually turn up.

Is "Dupree's" the version in that video or a different one?

I can't work out now how saying different tracks maybe a lucky guess :| :?
Also why on Trailer does it say 4 hours 3 complete shows,4 hour tapes when the Trailer was put together i bet was not even dreamt about.

Glad you finally got them, despite the damage. Happy listening, and happy reading on the Roxy liners. 8)

I recommend ordering from G&S, based in Liverpool. They're a bit cheaper and a lot less worry.

Ordered Joe's Camouflage and Roxy By Proxy on 16th March. Shipped on the 19th and arrived today, 31st. Not bad for Music Someday.

Roxy By Proxy? Straight to the top of my ZFT list. This release is a monster - this band has always been my favourite. I'm not disappointed in the slightest.

Joe's Camouflage? Meh! Of course, I am saying that in comparison to RBP.

Got RT#2 and Roxy by Proxy today. Two outstanding releases. Stellar performances, stellar arrangements and stellar music. Can't add more to what have been said already. These are just must haves!!!!
