    ALOHA VIA SATELLITE 40th ANNIVERSARY BOOK: NEW TRAILER & RELEASE DATE!

    The release date for the big Boxcar ALOHA 40th Anniversary book has slipped (again). The release date according to the new trailer is now 3rd June 2013.

    I was going to order it from the OEPFC UK but they will not be stocking it, so I have pre-ordered mine from Essential Elvis.

    It looks good, don't know if I could justify spending £75 on a book though, especially when I want a new amp.

    Can they ever release anything that actually coincides with the actual anniversary date?! It is not rocket science and there is ample time to acheive this goal.

    Nicely put. The book looks very interesting and if it was done right, could be exceptional.

    Is that release date just for overseas buyers? The reason I ask is because I already ordered mine the Friday before April Fool's Day.

    Joe, if you get it straight from Tunzi, it's $175.00 + Free Shipping & Handling but if you order overseas, it's a little over $100.00.

    If I fancy getting my arse smacked, I'll go direct to Tunzi. Making out like a bandit.

    Deb, there were cheaper places such as the Elvis Corner webshop but...they don't seem to want to reply to emails and I can't call them on the phone because our calling plan apparently doesn't include international calling...so, I had no other choice.

    You could have ordered the book from Amazon Uk I think. It's cheaper if I'm not mistaken.

    Even at those prices, it's stronging it a bit. Still, cheaper than Tunzi. Have you ordered yet Deb?

    When I communicated with Tunzi via email, he said it would be about a month before I received my order.....is that an odd business practice of his? Surely it wouldn't take a month to ship out a single book?!?!?!?!?

    I've had stuff sent from China that has arrived quicker than some inland stuff I'm still waiting on. It's annoying, but it gets there when it gets there. Oddly enough, it's generally stuff from America that takes the longest. Sometimes Customs get their hands on it and you have to pay a release fee. Hope you get your book soon Tony.

    no not yet Jen, its the £10 postage on top (I know its heavy, appreciate that) that makes it seem 'over the top'

    picking my 'new to me' car up on Monday.......not a good time at the min

    That's because the book isn't even released yet.
