I had mentioned this earlier but it bears repeating. I don't have my copy in hand yet, but I got the shipping notice last Saturday, and then today I got an e-mail calling attention to the fact that I was getting the exciting 2 pound price drop. And by the way, how do you make the pound sign on your keyboard? Is there by any chance a difference between American and British keyboards that prevents me from being able to do it?

David, if it's not on your keyboard, press the Alt-key and type 156, then let go of key Alt-key and the British Pound sign should appear:

Not got mine yet but then I did opt for free delivery which usually takes a day or so longer.


David, if it's not on your keyboard, press the Alt-key and type 156, then let go of key Alt-key and the British Pound sign should appear:


I you're using a desktop with a full size keyboard, you need to have Num Lock set and use the numeric keypad - not the numbers along the top row of the keyboard. Not sure about a laptop though.



The delivery time for Super Saver Delivery orders is 3 to 5 business days after dispatch.

I've ordered from Amazon and not received it , as of 9.20 02/09/2010 :(

Ah good news in Melbourne as Cellarful 4 has arrived from Amazon at last. The postman delivered it at 9.30 am. The packaging was scuffed and very dirty, as if it has been at the bottom of a bag somewhere in the system. And even better news is that it is a wonderful release that I've already listened to and loved....

So I must add my congratulations to Paul and the team for yet another magnificent job that fills in 50 more gaps in Motown's history. Roll on volume 5!!

I received my copy today (in Virginia), five business days after receiving the e-mail telling me it had been shipped. Also it was not scuffed or anything like some of you had said yours was.

I am about halfway through it so far, and the standout tracks for me have been the Four Tops song (title escapes me and the CD is out in the car) and Martha's "Miss Lonely Hearts." I also have not had a chance to look at any liner notes or whatever, so this is just a pure guess. I am guessing that song (Lonely Hearts) was recorded around 1967. Am I close, because it sounds like it would have fit right in with the Honey Love groove they had going on at the time?

I was sooooo looking forward to Gladys' treatment of the "The Day You Take One, You Have to Take the Other," but after playing it through twice, I can't help but be disappointed with it. Oh I guess if I had never heard the song before, I would like it OK, but the Marvelettes' version just blows this one out of the water.

There does appear to be a problem. I pre-ordered from Amazon, which keptt hedging on the US release date and a shipping date. I finally ordered from a seller in the UK, who I assume, got some of the first pressings. But Amazon.com doesn't have Cellarful 4 yet and neither does Dusty Groove, which is unusual.. I'm waiting on the postman.

There must be something weird going on with amazon UK. I received mine last week and, I must admit, earlier than I expected.

09-08-2010, 08:15 AM
They told me that the problem is with their merchant..."Starfish" ???.... or some such.
Really annoyed now as I popped into Bolton HMV and they didn't have it in....

CFOM 5 will be out before I get Vol 4 at this rate....


i wonder how PaulNixon feels about this.....nothing he can do about it , but not having it in HMV won't help sales will it.....and Bolton, whilst not being the centre of the universe, does have a number of soul fans in town.

that amazon phone number is supposed/they pretend to be in ireland.they've got that wierd american accent that non speakers pick up from english language tapes.when i asked if they were in the phillipines (they sound like my neighbours,who are!) and the answer was a long time coming,then it was no shannon,ireland!
i used to ask the indians at BT if they were managing ok in the snow,they pretended to be in the uk,even working uk hours and make up some story about getting thru it ok.it was june!

I'm sure you're right.
I've been reading on Motown Treasures that a version was issued on Dennis Edwards on a 10 CD set in the USA...about 6 U/I tracks only...all of which I have apart from "Keep on trying" by Dennis.
I have heard the snippet on Amazon and love what I hear....Dean & Weatherspoon surely?
