Thanks for ordering 'The Clarke & Ware Experiment' 10 CD set 'House Of Illustrious'. As you know, the release date is on Monday (26th November), but unfortunately there has been a slight snag in the manufacturing. There is unlikely to result in a delay of more than a few days, but this means you will receive the set later than you had expected and we had wanted.
The delay has unfortunately occurred as it took an additional 10 days to get the signed books back from Vincent in New York because of the hurricane that hit over there; he finished signing them and then the hurricane hit.
Even with the hurricane, we were still very confident of shipping them out in time to you, but when the final cellophane wrapping process started, it was apparent that it was a far more complicated process to do with this packaging than anyone had anticipated.
Martyn had personally been very clear on how he wanted the set packaged and it's a specific process, so rather than give you something that he wasn't happy with and would be generally inferior, we have opted to delay a few days.
We hope you agree that this is the right course of action and as soon as we have them, we will get them straight out to you.
We will also keep you up to date as the week progresses.
Please accept our apologies and thank you for your continued support.
Mute, Lexer Music and Illustrious.
