    I suppose. Of course I love the old and classic stuff, but I must confess some of the later Camel albums are my favourites. No news so far I guess

    ...and yet I've still heard nothing from Camel Productions themselves since this:-

    No updates since then.

    This doesn't inspire confidence...
    That's nothing in over a month. I think an email to those who've given them money costs nothing but a few moments and would be the decent thing to do.

    I understand your frustration, be patient because knowing how opportunist are any business companies, the DVD will be out before Christmas.

    While you may have provided a credit card or PayPal or some other method, charges are normally not charged until the item ships. I would suspect Camel Productions are not different.
    I know everyone including myself would love to have this in our hands... but these things do take time and we want them to have it 100% perfect so we can enjoy it for a lifetime.

    As we've seen for some time now, our music world is changing as our favorite musicians face health issues or a loss of one or more members of a band due to passing away. So let's be grateful Andy was healthy enough to do this tour and we have a recorded DVD of it.
    It will be here soon enough and we'll all have a big smile on our faces afterward.

    You faith is misplaced. They've had my money since August.

    I wouldn't say my faith has anything to do with it. It's my experience of 20 years of ordering merchandise online and I can't remember a time my preorder was charged before the item was shipped. There is usually a disclaimer stating "your card will not be charged until the date of shipment".
    Now, if you're saying you received a monthly statement in August that your card was already charged, then yes, that is disconcerting and unless previously stated by Camel Productions that your payment would be charged immediately, then that is wrong and I understand you being upset.

    My plan is to wait a few years and got a used copy online for cheaper.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    It was stated by CP that we would be charged, as a means of supporting them.

    Maybe, but that's a lot to assume!

    Well, it will arrive when it's ready. I must admit that all the waiting is hard though...

    I agree it is unusual - but not unique. The Burning Shed (on-line shop in the UK - which is the main channel for King Crimson, Steven Wilson and others) operates in the same way.

    I don't find this so unusual unless you're talking about big record companies, because when you order directly form a band, it's charged right away.

    I hope that's not true, but if it is I'd like to be know for sure so I can cancel my Amazon pre-order to free up my gift card allocation for some currently released music.

    I wonder what's happening and why it takes so long? Not a single word from CP concerning this...

    Maybe the "check disc" CP were sent had errors on it? This would certainly slow things down.
