Message from Amazon.com re: box sets
I just received the following e-mail from amazon.com:
Hello from Amazon.com,
Our records indicate you purchased a Beatles Mono Box Set, and we wanted to update you on its availability.
This new information will not affect your pre-order--if you pre-ordered a mono box set, you will receive it.
The manufacturer has informed us that they will be producing additional mono box sets due to high demand. While the box set remains a limited-production item, it will not be capped at 10,000 copies for the U.S. market, as originally reported.
I have a bad feeling I wont be getting the mono box on Wed....
<slams head on wall>
Should have pre ordered instead of relying on a actual, physical brick and mortar store....
Box Sets: Special Amazon Availability Message
Collectible box sets take time to manufacture, and initial quantities must be determined well in advance of the product release date. In this case, demand has far outstripped initial supply. While we predicted that the box sets would be highly popular items, we had to work with the inventory allocated to us by the manufacturer.
We've been carefully tracking pre-orders, and we updated the product availability information on our site as soon as our initial allocations were depleted. We did this in order to ensure that we could fill all pre-orders without exceeding our allocation limits.
We will receive more stereo box sets. The manufacturer has informed us that they will be producing additional mono box sets due to high demand. While the mono box set will still remain a limited production item, it will no longer be limited to 10,000 copies for the U.S. market, as originally reported.
We will soon have more mono box sets back in stock.
We will likely have limited quantities, so check back here often for the latest information, or check your email frequently to make sure that you don't miss out.

I went to my neighborhood borders today to see if they were getting a copy of the mono box set. They are getting ONE on 9-9-9, and it's 300 dollars...Hopefully Best Buy shows a little more foresight and will have multiple copies.
Here is more info:
We will continue to provide you with up-to-the-minute information about the availability of the Beatles box sets on Amazon.com. As soon as we have more inventory available, we will include information in our Beatles Store and notify all customers who have signed up to receive information about the box sets.
If anyone in the UK hasn't ordered these, or can't find them etc..
