Anyone in USA got the new Erasure CD Single yet?


Anyone in USA got the new Erasure CD Single yet?

Postby Fred Taghon » Fri Oct 27, 2017 8:23 am

I ordered Erasure's new CD-Single "Just A Little Love" through Pledge Music way in advance of the release date. Got a message from Pledge on Oct. 9 that it had shipped. It's been 18 days and still hasn't arrived. I order stuff from UK, Germany, Greece fairly often and this just seems to be taking longer than average. Pledge's website suggests waiting 30 days before inquiring but I'm just curious if anyone in the USA ordered through Pledge and if their CD has arrived yet??

just to add, my first experience with them not good, paid for the Gary Numan Savage deluxe and standard and didn't get neither on release day. waiting another week then made my move, contacted and said what the hell...everybody got theres !
had very good customer service though, that was triple what you pay in the stores for these, I was madd!
anyway they resend'd..and if by chance my first batch did arrive......well anyway they didn't come but I got the second batch within 6 days.
soooo, I would call!
I got mine long ago but via amazon uk.
cheers!.

Thanks I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. Luckily, a few hours after I made that post, I walked out my front door and there was the package sitting on my doorstep. So it took a week longer than I anticipated, but I did ultimately end up receiving it and everything inside the package was as expected.

Funny how that happens sometimes. For me, it wasn't a few hours, but there's been a couple of times when I would contact an eBay seller about not getting my stuff, and then the next day or two, it arrives :D .

I believe it is the action of you contacting the seller that causes the package to arrive right after

the song is ok as a single. nice and upbeat and catchy.

however, the mixes are all pretty bad, and similar. only one is decent.

i can't really tell the difference between them.
the b-side, unsung, is kind of experimental.

they should have done more with this release.

I think it's an average song overall for them but I've collected everything since day one so figured why stop now. But I tend to agree the mixes are just kind of so-so. Nothing really made my ears perk up. I suppose the Wider Productions mixes are my favorites, followed by the 7th Heaven mixes, but as you said, there's not much to differentiate the two. I LOVE Bright Light Bright Light but was pretty disappointed with his mix and the Dave Ball mix I just don't care for at all. I like "Unsung", but it's definitely not among their best B-sides. At the end of the day, the "World Be Gone" album wasn't especially ripe for catchy singles but that's ok - I still like it as an album.

i was a huge erasure fan in the 80's, stopped in the 90's, caught up in the 00-10 era with most of their stuff (except all the acoustic folksy stuff).

the previous album was a great return to form, and i got all the singles in a boxset, and enjoyed all the mixes, and special editions.... this album has none of that appeal,
single wise, or tracks... so it was just a brief resurgence.
