These were on sale as early as July 31st -- that's when I bought mine. RIAB posted the link on Tuesday -- probably causing the Sell Out but there were probably a good number purchased before then. Just a heads-up.

I like the way the image of the cover over at the backstage club alternates from FAR to NEAR, a la Grover.

regarding the SACD Presto- they underestimated the demand and more are being made-- I received an email from them apologizing and offering an additional 10% off for my inconvenience :) a diamond in the waste of customer service you usually encounter out there...

Not quite related but I got my SACD of "Presto" today...amazing the nuances that I can hear. "Presto" isn't my favorite Rush album, but it was my first Rush concert and it was part of my High School soundtrack. I hope AF keeps going with these...PW and HYF next please!!

Well that sucks. May I take hope from the wording "This pre-order is now sold out," leaving hope for another pre-order? The wording "The pre-order..." would have dashed all hope, but it looks like the RBS may have left open the possibility of limiting our ire by offering another 500 or 1000 more. :)

Makes me wonder whether the 500 already sold haven't been swept up by "book scalpers."

Man, hardly one day posted and the Special Edition is already sold out! (at least according to the Backstage website.
