It's not a very clear shopping cart, a bit basic and you think your ordering one album for £30, think I'll wait a while for them to sort it out before ordering.

HMV has each of them listed at £6.99 for pre-order.

Indeed, the broken images don't look too good either.

That's pretty amazing, by that they are undercutting ZTT by 3 pounds and even play.com by 2 pounds. So for all four albums, if you live in the UK, you'll be paying 28 quid, compared to ZTT's special offer of 30 (ZTT includes postage to anywhere in the world).

Having said that, hmv.co.uk sucks heavily (as people who have ordered online there before will know, especially if there was a problem), so I'd recommend to go through ZTT. But ZTT will have to get their site sorted out soon...

Yeah, I've ordered before on HMV when the items have been in stock, because of free delivery they think it's ok for you to wait up to a week for your order. Play.com are highly efficient and I've never had to wait more than 48 hours. ZTT looks the best though as we get it a week before the release date, well, so they say.

I've stopped ordering at play altogether, as literally 3 out of 4 shipping's got lost.

Yup, hmv.co.uk sucks big time - not only do that put stuff in stock that they don't have (but already released), but their delivery takes weeks (even if you select the speedy delivery bit)...

Not recommended... They could learn a LOT from the Japanese arm... :)

From ZTT: "There's a complete new ZTT website in the works which is set to go live in the next week or two and will include lots of news and info on the 808 reissues."

After the debacle of trying to get Quadrastate from hmv.co.uk, i won't be ordering from them again. They suck. :x

Looks like ZTT have done some fixing.

It's still not perfect though, as when you try to purchase all 4 albums it lists Don Solaris for £30. I've given it a go anyway, didn't fancy messing about with Amazon, Play or HMV this time! Fingers Crossed!

Love the covers, I'm starting to get excited now.

Re-releases, ZTT covers, SOT release and certain upcoming live gigs, all in the same month. Fantastic.

Subscribers of the ztt.com mailinglist will have received this piece of news today:
*******************************************************
808 State - Deluxe Editions of Original Albums - Released 22nd September

The albums are now available for pre-ordering from www.ztt.com/shop at £9 per title (this includes postage and packing to all countries).

Alternatively, you can purchase all four titles for £30 if you order them in one go. Click on "ZTT 808 State Offer" from the list of artists on the left hand side and follow the steps to proceed. The individual albums are available by clicking on "808 State".

If you place your order now we will send you the album/s a week in advance.

*******************************************************

Since the official release date is 29th September, I'm not sure if the "week in advance" offer means 22nd September or indeed 15th September, which would be just one week away! :)
