A couple of thoughts of mine….

a) VH I had an initial announced run of 10,000 copies of the LPs, which was later bumped to 12,000.
b) VH II has an announced run of 7,500 copies of the LPs. Obviously they either expect lower demand, or based on the sold numbers VH I produced, they lowered their qty.
c) From the time VH I was put up for pre-order, it was 13-14 weeks until it shipped. I would expect similar or less for VH II.
d) The sound quality of the VH II release will be a test of whether or not we can expect the same kind of results they got for VH I, on the future releases.

They’re sure taking their time from pressing VH II to shipping it..

We are in week 13 since they started pre-sales, so if VH 1 is a guide, they should be shipping within a week. We’ll see!

Got E-Mail from MoFi, VH II appears to be in stock as of today (June 20), both SACD and UD1S.

You asked us to tell you when Van Halen – Van Halen II would be available to purchase.
We are pleased to tell you it is now available, potentially in very limited quantities.

They will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.

Any word on when the VH1 SACD will be restocked, or have I missed it?
The $10 shipping fee is a turn-off, but if I can get VH1&2 SACDs in the same order, then I’ll bite the bullet.

Edit: I was able to place a back order for the VH1 SACD, so I bit the bullet.
2 copies of each VH SACD for $130 shipped.
No taxes in Texas, so that offset the shipping fee.

:-D

I received the same email because I’d signed up for the “let me know” email.

I pre-ordered this in March, hoping to get a “shipped” email in the very near future.
