August Release Delayed

I fully expected to see it today at the usual time. Some folks seem to think it may be Friday before we get to hear it. I'm not one for the conspiracy theories either but, given how regular as clockwork these releases have been popping up, you can't help but wonder at what could cause such a snafu. A few hrs delay is one thing, a few days, or a week, is something else entirely.

I think it might be today, or Friday, or any day in between today or Friday, or any day after Friday.

I think will prove to be pretty close to the truth.

Not any day but a day between today and 1 September.

Unlike they will combine August and September in a double smash release on first Friday of September.

Like both Winterland shows. Or both Cleveland 31.12.1978 and Cleveland 1 January 1979. Or all 4 of them.

(Well Nugs cannot say we are not giving them suggestions for an assault on our bank accounts)

I don't think it's real now; what somebody wrote before about getting an email; others have written them getting nothing; why just one person?

It seems Nugs would make an announcement instead. If they don't tomorrow I wouldn't count on it coming out on Friday anymore.

Because tomorrow is Wednesday?

I believe there was a delay in the mastering due to vacation and it may come out this Friday? 

I always thought they have at least three releases ready at any given time. As a backup. It seems a bit unprofessional if they are mixing it at the last minute every single month. Stock up, Nugs!

And furthermore, I think you plan personnel's vacations thoroughly so that they affect the normal flow of the business as little as possible. 

Otherwise, you close for a month, see you in September! With a double pack, or something exceptional.

Indeed... Bunch of slackers! I want my money back! 

Though at the same time, it's not really that important, really. It's not like anybody is actually really inconvenienced. Some folk might be a little disappointed.. Sure... But there's no one who's really disadvantaged because of a slight delay in the uploadingding of an old Springsteen show. 

And if they'd never said they'd do this every first Friday of the month, if they'd just been throwing them out whenever, we wouldn't even know there was a slight delay.

I just read that a person got a message from nugs that there was a delay in mastering because of vacations and it will come out this Friday the 9th.

How very dare they take holidays!! Don't they know who we are? We know people who know people.

To avoid any further misunderstandings. I don't have anything against people going on vacations. I'm just back from my own. I believe every working person should have the right and financial funds to go on vacations. Or to sit at home on the couch, doing nothing, and getting paid for.

In Slovenia, we are entitled to a minimum of 4 weeks of annual paid leave (100%). Additional days of annual leave are stipulated by law and it is quite common to reach numbers as high as 35 days, sometimes even more. All 100% paid for. Our socialistic/communistic legacy, I suppose. :)

I understand this isn't the place for this discussion, so @Nugs, enjoy the sun and the cocktails... 

 

I had to get this off my chest.

I agree.

Because today is now the day after this email was supposedly sent to one sole person, and since they didn't make an announcement yesterday, if they want to share this with the public (as this alleged email indicated), they would want to announce it soon for it coming out on Friday, if that's when it really is.

I just wouldn't count on it coming out Friday is all.

Fair enough, and I was only pulling yer plonker. 

I'm not sure we're sure when it will come out, but it will come out when it does. They've dropped the odd show on us almost unannounced before from memory, so who knows, maybe it will just get added to the site and that will be it.

Initially, they were released really randomly, totally different times, weeks, even months apart. We've just gotten accustomed to the regular as clockwork first Friday releases.
