The Wyatt Earp missing disk discussion has been locked, so I have (embarrassingly) had to post this as a new subject.

My apologies to all I offended by trying to find out if this was a wider problem than one missing disk. At the time I posted, I also sent an email to the supplier (not LaLaLand) who has sent me the missing CD. I thought that to be the appropriate course rather than going direct to LaLaLand.

I posted the original message because in 25 years of buying CDs around the world I don't recall having a box set arrive with one disk missing. I have had faulty disks and some that were damaged in transit, but never a box in its original packaging that has been minus a disk. I'm curious as to whether this is more than an isolated event.

You have no reason to apologize. However, some of the people who did respond in that thread probably should.

I agree with Erik, Ken has no need to apologise but one or two responses to his post were pretty appalling.

Absolutely right on Erik...couldn't have said it better.

To Ken: Thanks for letting those that sympathise know that you resolved the issue. I let LLL know that you were in Australia where it is now 7:30 a.m. on the West Coast as they seemed anxious to hear from you and may have overlooked the time differential.

To Ford: He's apologized....any response to that?

I agree that you have no reason to apologize. I thought it was interesting that almost no one on the now-locked thread seemed to take into account that you live in Australia. From my own experience I know what a hassle it can be to try to replace damaged or defective items that you ordered from a company overseas. If I had been in your situation I probably would have done the same thing and posted here first to see if this was a problem that was common to the disc and was already being handled by the distributor or manufacturer. There seem to be a few people on this board who instantly have a knee-jerk reaction against customers asking very basic questions about problems they have with items.

I've got nothing to add. The matter appears to be settled

Ken,

You certainly do not need to apologize for anything nor should you be embarassed about anything you posted. Offend anyone? Hardly. I would like to apologize to you for some of the things that were said on the other thread. I hope everything will be resolved and I am sure it will.

It's absolutely bizzare how serious some people take this message board as to seem to unite together to flame an innocent query.

I'm sorry but that's too easy. First you have to visit a shrink and get to the bottom of your issues with not directly contacting the label (or your supplier), instead going on a message board dealing with the product you bought and paid for. Not to mention your crazy theories about how a disc can go missing and your beliefs that it could be a widespread issue. These could be signs of a delusional mind. You also need to prove to us that you bear no ill will towards La-La Land records and you aren't here to diss their Wyatt Earp release. After you've done that, you need to remain silent about the Wyatt earp release and never mention it on this board again, especially your listening experience and enjoyment you derive from it, in your case of discs 1 and 3. After a suitable evaluation period during which you don't mention annoying questions on this board and you only scold people for doing so, a counsel of wise men (including the top authorities on customer service on this board), will convene to agree upon reviewing your request for an apology.

Good luck.

For what it's worth, I don't think you need to apologize for anything either.

Note: Francis' post was pure irony.

Can only agree with everything that has been said in response in this thread so far. Enjoy your Wyatt Earp set, Ken. And thanks to the one with the immaculate hairdo for her reasonable comments in the locked thread. smile

Hey Ken, what do you think of the release? I think it's fantastic. I ordered the Matrix Reloaded as well and even though it too is fabulous, I'm actually playing Wyatt Earp more! One of HOward's best ever!

@Francis:
Genius!

@Ken:
You did nothing wrong. Please continue to contribute

No apologies needed. Some made a mountain out of a mole hill. And yes two awesome releases by LLL.

To the contrary, I believe apologies ARE needed. But I doubt that Ken will receive any.
Thankfully, it appears that while he was being mocked by the "professional" soundtrack personnel here, Ken was receiving very good service from elsewhere.

I agree, Ken has no reason to apologize, but someone else should and that will never happen.

Well, you know... I probably shouldn't say this, but... I'm a bit offended with this apology post, I think you should create another unnecessary apology post for this one. That's going to annoy some people and that will require a lot more apologies. I think that in a week or so you can single handedly take down the entire forum with your apology posts. Let's hope that, by then, you already have your CD2 and decide to stop this madness smile
