How did you lucky stiffs get the book so fast?

I ordered it a couple of months ago. Currently Amazon says the arrival date is late November I can't cancel the order and buy it somewhere else I checked my credit card account on line, and it doesn't turn up there, so apparently it hasn't shipped. But according to their rules, I should be able to cancel until it's actually on the road.

Does anyone know how to communicate directly with Amazon? And would anyone be willing to call me and read the first couple of chapters, so I can at least get a fix?

I'm experiencing severe bummitude (bummage? bummery? bummificence?

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My sentiments exactly!! Thought I was ahead of the game by preordering. This is very disappointing.

Overall I like Amazon -- I guess. I use them enough But this is lousy customer service, and tempts me to approach other vendors unless they have something truly unique. It's kind of like their free shipping for orders over $25. It's free, but you have to wait an extra week. Granted, they run their show and can do it the way they want. But good ol' American capitalistic competition wins my money nearly every time!

My copy was scheduled to ship late November and I figured it was because I ordered it with the Layla book. I cancelled the Layla book and Skydog shipped the same day. Now I'll go back and order Layla.

PS: Thanks Randy for writing this book. Been a fan for over 30 years. Can't wait to read it.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! The light just went on.

Thanks. I'll try the same.

I thought they shipped books as they became available. Silly me!

Bill;
Sorry about your state of bummacity, but I think bummitude IS a better word; it rolls off the tongue...

My amazon says, "Delivery estimate: October 11, 2006 - October 13, 2006"...

I think your ordering the "Layla" book is what delayed the shipping. I ordered the remastered "EAP" to round out the $25 free shipping requirement. Credit where it's due; Amazon has always given me excellent service.

You just want to be the first Duane fan on your block to have a copy. Don't worry, your ABB street cred is intact...

In the meantime, I'll have my copy chained down at the "ABB Science Reading Room" (right next to Red Dog's & Willie Perkin's books and the GP issues) for your perusal...
Now, what about that DVD you were tantalizing me with awhile back... ?

I ordered both books on the same day, too, and was considering doing the same. But I just got this e-mail.

Greetings from Amazon.com.

We thought you'd like to know that we shipped this portion of your
order separately to give you quicker service. You won't be charged
any extra shipping fees, and the remainder of your order will follow
as soon as those items become available.

1 Skydog : The Duane Allman ...

Shipped via USPS (estimated arrival date: 13-October-2006).

What a wonderful thing to look forward to! Randy, thank you for this book!!!

I'm not quite sure how this happened, but I preordered my copy (along with the Derek and the Dominoes book) no more than two week ago and its estimated arrival date is 10/5-10/7. Although it didnt come today...

It took some doing, and some serendipity, but I found a link that supposedly let one connect with Amzon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/102-1857613-4845759?ie= UTF8&nodeId=901888
