Retail annoys me. For some reason Tori Amos’ new CD and DVD is considered a “specialist release” and therefore unless you live in London you can’t get hold of it. That’s what HPM was told when trying to buy the duo on Monday. HMV however did have the CD but at a shocking £16. The DVD was not available. So once again retailers have done themselves out of a sale. I don’t mind paying one or two pounds more to grab a release on the day but this will be the first Tori Amos release where I’ve not got hold of it on the day of purchase in store (except the box sets).
However it doesn’t appear to just be the retailers fault as I then went with my internet favourite Amazon.co.uk whom have just sent an e-mail to say the DVD won’t be shipping until 06/10/08! So has the release been mucked up? Was there not enough stock for demand? Its a shame but eventually it’ll wing its way here for a review.
