2nd batch They are on HMV site 'commercial marketing' label and the 1st batch was the same but since they update 2nd batch on there now says UMC for 1st batch.

The time line
1st batch UK July30th/USA July31st
2nd batch USA August28th/UK September24th.

IINK site has the release dates for the rest
3rd batch/September 25, 2012 -- Zappa Records/Universal Music Enterprises
4th batch/October ?, 2012 -- Zappa Records/Universal Music Enterprises
5th batch/November 27, 2012 -- Zappa Records/Universal Music Enterprises

It seems like IINK site has gone for a Guess with it being the last Tuesday of the months/USA.But not October 8)

Amazon UK seems to have the new batch in for £11+, so I looked on http://www.sainsburysentertainment.co.uk and was surprised and delighted to see most of the titles for £7.99 + free postage! Yippee!

I've been waiting for about a 10 days for my Sainsbury's CDs. ZA actually arrived by itself on Friday and hopefully the rest will arrive this coming week. I don't mind the wait though; it's not like I haven't heard the albums before.

Yeah - Sainsburys are taking the piss a bit. I ordered the analogue sourced remasters. On their site it says items 'dispatched within 6 working days'... They seem intent on shipping my order 1 CD at a time. ZA came a week ago. SUAPYG is apparently on its way.... I might have all of them by Christmas I suppose.
