Nothing yet. Very upset with SONY. Never again!
-Madrid 1993 (standing up face to face to Leonard, leaning my arms upon the stage (no cams, no security line), my hands touched Cohen's feet!) (talked to Cohen for 20 minutes after concert!!!)
-Lisbon 2009 (1st row!!)
-Madrid 2012 (1st row centred facing Leonard!!)
-FOREVER

Were you able to reach a human at UPS Customer Service to find out what's going on?

I live on south coast of England in deep countryside.
I ordered Old Ideas on 22 November 2011. It arrived yesterday (4 February 2012).
I ordered Old Ideas plus litho on 23 November 2011. It has not arrived yet.

[Old Ideas is gorgeous ... I almost forgive Sony now .... but next cd shall come from Amazon UK].

I received mine on Friday. Sony could have done worse I suppose, but they certainly could have done better.

Sony shipped my CD on january 30, they said. But I have not gotten it yet. Today, I saw the CD (brazilian edition) in a store. I didn´t buy it, of course. The CD I am anxiously awaiting will be more expensive than the brazilian edition I could have bought today...
I thought brazilian Sony would delay releasing Old Ideas, that´s why I pre-ordered. If USA fans haven´t gotten it yet, I imagine I have to await for it for a lot of time!
Pre-order, never again!

Procrastination finally worked in my favor. I kept scouring the web for a great bargain price. Did I want the package, LP, CD, and litho or any other combination thereof???? The litho - did I want to pay that price.... I wanted the Columbia Studio boxset also. Then eureka! On MyPlay, a package of the boxset, the new CD and litho for $156.99 including S&H. Ordered on 1-5. I was hoping that by ordering this package and them showing that the set would ship in 2-3 days, would they make an exception and send the CD and litho as well. Wait, wait, wait.....still showing 2-3 days a week later and a week later.... Do I run to my local record store to pick up the new product on the 28th? No need - the whole package was delivered here on Monday, 1-27. Only case in my life where putting something off worked to my advantage.

Unsurprisingly, there was no sign of my pre-order (CD + litho) when we got home a couple of hours ago. According to the e-mail I received from the LC Global Store, my order shipped on January 26. It normally takes 5 working days for orders from the US or Canada to get here but they seem to have employed a particularly slow breed of snail to deliver these orders. Very shoddy service indeed from Sony.

Haven't gotten mine either. I ordered CD and litho on Nov. 22nd and received shipping notification on January 27th. It may be sitting at customs but since I haven't received tracking information I wouldn't know. For sure my credit card has been charged. I was hoping the shipping would be done in advance so we could have the CD the same day it hits the stores. This was hoping. I listen to the free npr.stream which was posted a while ago and fortunately is still working. In the end I will have to buy the CD a second time at my local store. Ten days after the release I don't want to wait longer.
So much for saving my money in case there will be another tour.
Oh well,
Christel

Here the response about non-arrival to UK. To summarise:

We hand it over to UPS
They just get it across the sea then the post office takes over
It can take up to 18 days to arrive - business days
We have no idea where it is now
Don't bother us again, no longer our problem and we don't give a shit!

I am not a very happy bunny! This certainly is a "mail innovation" it is just crap.

Hi,

I'm sorry that you've not received the order. According to the information in our database, your order was shipped on January 26, 2012 via UPS Mail Innovations. This delivery method allows us to significantly reduce your shipping costs, while still providing the reliable international service UPS is known for. UPS will deliver your item to the postal service of your country, who will then in turn deliver the parcel to you. UPS Mail Innovations does not provide tracking numbers for individual items and hence, the tracking is not available for this shipping method. The delivery may take 8 to 18 business days (3 weeks approximately) from the date of shipping.

So you should receive your order between (January 26, 2012 - February 6, 2012) and (January 26, 2012 - February 20, 2012). If your order doesn't arrive within the estimated time frame, you may want to check with your local post office, your parcel may be held there if customs fees or taxes are due.

Sincerely,

Sony Music Digital

On Nov 22 I ordered a CD for me and a CD+litho for a friend.
The CD+litho arrived on Friday but still no news of my CD....
I couldn't wait and bought a second one at a local store :cry:
