    i did... pre-ordered all items together, so i guess they put them in one parcel with the boxset and ship it to me only in mid november.

    Deer Goldfrapp box set purchaser,

    Thank you for ordering the limited edition box set, we hope you're as excited as we are about the album. Over the course of the coming months we'll be sending out various updates on the progress of the box. You will be the first to get these updates, the website won't be updated until at least a day later, if at all in some cases. 

    Thank you again for coming on the journey with us. 

    Alison, Will, The Deer & Mute.



    Why didn't I get this message after I ordered? :(


    Now that's strange. I ordered about 3 days after they announced the box set, and received this same email not even a day or two later. Perhaps yours was just processed later? Or they prioritized the first 500?

    I bought the box set on the day it was up for pre-order. Think my order number is like 0000181 or something silly like that! Just been onto sandbag and my order is still there... Maybe sandbag really hates me? :)
  • Are you sure the email didn't go into the spam bucket?  Unfortunately, it's been so long, if it's like gmail, it's been dumped by now if it was in there.
  • Any set release date for the deluxe box yet?

  • No, they haven't even sent out any updates yet after they said they were going to, i'm guessing that all won't start until after the albums released.
  • That seems the case, yes. They're too busy finishing up with the album release and whatnot, it's perfectly understandable. I don't mind waiting!
  • Just pre-ordered box! I'm so happy. How quick have you received your confirmation e-mail from Sandbag? I'm checking my e-mail and there is no any info yet...
  • Deluxe box set?????  What is it (apart from being a deluxe box set)?  As far as I know, this is the first I've heard of it.  I just looked through the posts on this thread, but can't see any explanation.

    Thank you for that Ping.

    Several things give me pause over it:
    1. At £65 it seems rather expensive.  Moreover, it looks as though there's about a tenner's worth of postage and packing in addition, which brings it up to around £75, which is even more expensive.
    2. It contains several things I won't want.  Since it's released in November, I'll have already bought the CD, and won't need a second copy.  I don't want the vinyl album.
    3. It seems to give very little information on the package.  What, for example, is on the bonus CD?  I've played the bonus CD from the Black Cherry deluxe album once, and once only.  I'm suspicious of things about which I'm told so little.
    4. As a (presumably) 12 inch square boxed set it won't fit on a CD shelf.  I foresee it (should I buy the thing) joining other boxed sets on a high shelf from which I rarely pull any of them down.

    I'm curious about the bonus CD, but I doubt whether I'm £75's worth of curious about it.
  • I'm also disappointed that it seems the short films won't be on the DVD. Kind of a waste to only include the album mixed in 5-point whatever on it considering the films are supposed to be a pretty important element of this release.
    I had a king in a tenement castle, lately he's taken to painting the pastel walls brown. He's taken the curtains down. He's swept with the broom of contempt, and the rooms have an empty ring. He's cleaned with the tears of an actor who fears for the laughter's sting...

    I pretty much agree with that. I do not have much money to spare at the mo anyway. If there was a T-Shirt with it i then would have had to get it. My Supernature one is never off my back. The Alison drawings one i got from the concert at Manchester Academy 2010 is just kept as a souvenir. The normal cd i have already ordered from Sainsburys. So there is no way i am getting the boxset even though i am a MASSIVE Frapper.

    Is that right?  Is it just an audio DVD?  Crumbs!
