Graceland Book Amazon Warning

Our friends at EER have issued the following warning: "These past few weeks, internet retail giant Amazon have been advertising the upcoming general release of the ultimate Graceland book. But, if you have pre-ordered Elvis Presley's Graceland, Through the Years 1957-1977 from Amazon, then you may want to cancel your order and re-order from one of the Elvis dealers on the web. EER has been informed by Joseph Pirzada that to this day Amazon have yet to make any contact with him regarding buying stock for them to meet the numbers pre-ordered. With this in mind we would not want to see any fan waiting for this one to be disappointed once this is released.

This is not the first time something like this has happened, you may remember some time ago, Amazon advertised an upcoming FTD classic series 7" (I think 'Elvis Country') and mistook it for just a normal £8.99 release. Fans pre-ordered the album before they could spot the error. Come the release date and words "Currently out of stock" and so it remained for weeks until all orders were cancelled, when it was removed."

This is totally inaccurate. Amazon UK are definitely stocking & selling this book. I have already received my copy from them... Quite a saving on postage compared with the European sites (It's free!!)

I never give money to Amazon, iTunes, or any of the mass marketing people. I prefer to support local business on new items. If I am wheeling and dealing on used, rare, or vintage items I have had success on eBay but that is probably because I started early and learned the game. Good communication skills usually ferrets out the frauds and making sure the seller will agree to a no default return policy underwritten.

It must be something about the name. Seems that people called 'Joseph' will stop at nothing to get publicity. Of any kind.
