The Ommadawn Limited Edition Set has disappeared from Amazon. You can only find Hergest Ridge Limited Edition Set right now.

I've requested clarification from Universal on this one. Best not to speculate too much at this stage - we'll do our best to find out what's actually going on.

[Update] We're informed that as originally announced, the only place to buy the limited editions will be on mikeoldfieldofficial.com. There will be no unsigned limited editions available. The Amazon listing is an error, and orders placed will not be processed.

To confirm also, the signed editions will be personally hand-signed by Mike in the Bahamas - he's been busy signing these recently and the prints are expected back in the UK soon!

I also asked this earlier today from the Universal Music Store support, and got the following reply:

"Thanks for your message.

I can undersatnd your concern regarding this and since we received your email, we have investigated the matter. Our management at Universal has been in contact with Amazon and have advised that it was a mistake on their side as it is only available through Universal Music. Amazon is currently in the process of removing it from their site.

So rest assured that your order is one of only 250 worldwide."

Good show. It is, as I suspected, a case of Amazon being a little too thorough with their listings of every potentially available product.
The listing is still there - at least for the Hergest Ridge set - but is now merely a 'placeholder' for an item that may become available in the future, presumably second-hand from a third party seller.

All is well so far. Let's hope for those of you who have invested in these sets the quality and the service match the price tag this time :music:

Yeah. As in "we'll let you know when some random fan has one that they might want to sell at an exorbitant price". Or something like that  ;)   :D

Good news though that the products really will be strictly limited editions only available from the official shop - unlike last time  :(

hey manintherain...

Does it mean that you ordered one copy from Amazon and not from the official site?

:)

No, I ordered both of my copies from the official store first and then ordered another pair from Amazon just to see if I could get them any cheaper. So let´s see if Universal will not mess it up again this time.

Sadly I missed out on these - I didn't see the news until too late, it seems.

I'm still desperate to get copies, however.

If any of you kind people has bought multiple copies, or want to change your mind about owning a copy, I'd be happy to take one of each off your hands!

EDIT: Thanks to someone from these boards (I know their real name but not their user name here), I was informed today that another batch has gone back on sale at the official store, and these are now ordered.

I'm now really very happy!  :)

Yesterday at about 6 PM, it was possible to order it, because there was the link "add to basket" and I tried to do it.

I think Olly is right. Somebody had maybe cancelled his or her order.

This morning....it doesn't work anymore...
