Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

A new server, a new environment. Updated and all.

As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Another new album by Jean Michel Jarre

That's more or less the definition of the word "overkill" ;)

Except for Interior Music this must be Jarre's most repetitive album ever. :nod:

Radiophonie vol 7 is 4 discs, so that's not that unrealistic.

Still not received your copy of Radiophonie from Amazon or other retailers? That's because it is sold out from the record's distributor, Harmonia Mundi. Now Radio France (the copyright holder) is waiting for Jarre's agreement to press another 1000 copies. Info from said distributor.

They only pressed 1000 copies? Well that seems like an odd decision. I understand it's not a full blown album and won't sell as one, but this seems needless low.

Amazon.de does not list it as "out of stock", guess I'll just order it and see what happens. I've given up on local distributors.

My thoughts exactly. The 1000 copies are what I deduced from Glenn's post. It's as much as Interior Music and the Electronica Deluxe Box.

As Glenn says it: there were more than 1000 copies made (it's unknown how much), but they want to make another 1000 extra.

"Currently unavailable" at amazon.de/amazon.fr (missed it by a couple of hours). Some sites still allow you to buy it (jpc.de - "1 or 2 weeks if available from supplier")

Bol.com says 2-3 weeks... Hope we can get an update here when additional copies are pressed.

And when they are, what do you think would be the best bet to place an order? Amazon?

Whatever website can offer the CD quicker than just order it from there. Didn't Amazon.de have any stock left?

You could try eil.com but they might charge more

Hope you get it soon :)

When it's an "import" it's not always reliable; some sites will claim 1-2 weeks, some will claim 2-3 weeks... But I guess it all boils down to which site will process the order first and order it from the distributor. There are for instance stores in Poland that claim "9 days" or "14 days" but I know for sure that they don't have it in stock and if I placed an order today they'd have to order it and then tell me "sorry, the distributor doesn't have it anymore". I definitely learned my lesson with the Oxygene Trilogy Box, and the lesson is "do not order any JMJ limited editions in Poland, 'cause you'll get screwed" :)
Didn't Amazon.de have any stock left?
Nope, they're out as of yesterday.

eil.com doesn't even offer this release :)

For the time being I ended up ordering it from amazon.co.uk - it is "temporarily out of stock" but still allowed me to order ("Order now and we'll deliver when available. We'll e-mail you with an estimated delivery date as soon as we have more information."). We'll see what happens.

The interesting thing is that when I ordered it yesterday it was 14.25 GBP, now it's at 12.46. There's also one "in stock" copy for 43 GBP, but I'm going to skip this one :)
