    It's looking pretty gloomy. The CDJapan link no longer shows the not currently available blurb, now it just returns PAGE NOT FOUND

    I looked at my order and it's still there, however. But that in itself is not that comforting.....

    The listing on cdjapan was Sony's way of "testing the waters" to see if there was enough demand for this disc... now that they've got enough pre-orders, it's time to start production, baby!

    Not at all....when multiple sites leaves PAGE NOT FOUND than something is very, very wrong.

    This situation reminds me of--and this might be for many here ancient history--the Japan Odeon CD edition of the Beatles' ABBEY ROAD, which was pressed once and found its way to our shores as an import. It was the first official--or so we thought--compact disc from the Fabs, but just a month or two after it became available (remember, this is pre-internet) EMI and/or Apple (Corps) demanded its withdrawal, and it was gone. Then for several years no legit Beatles on CD was available (and when this finally happened, some of the remasters, alas, just sucked).

    Here we are in 2017, and no sooner than the hybrid BOTW was announced, of course it was yanked, with scant hope any copies will make it to anybody. Which is to say, there is so much I dig about the 'net, and some aspects that, like anything else, just suck. It's now easier to propagate misinformation and lies, fake or misrepresented photos; anything. Anything goes and there's so much to filter. This album may not be great, but a very commercial title for a hybrid.

    My hope for this release is now down to 1%...if it was pressed, and if just a few of us snag one, well...

    I hear you Ralph.. fwiw I'm trying to see these troubled Quad waters a bit more, pragmatically, maybe.. after all, its not like the BOTW Quad hasn't been "out there" in some shape or form (whether SQ, Q8 or the Robin bob bob bobbin reel) the last however many years.. so long.. so long..

    I just received this response from CDJapan. Still I'm not sure if it makes me believe I will ever see it.

    Hello.

    Thank you for contacting CDJapan.

    Actually, we are a bit frustrated about this, because they did not offer any clear explanation, but the record company needed to discontinue acceptance of orders temporarily for some type of internal reasons of their own.

    They could offer an explanation or tell us when they will resume order acceptance, but I'd like to reassure you that your order will continue to be processed.

    Sincerely,
    Toshi Makiya

    That sounds pretty ominous. Hopefully they will honour the orders that have been placed. Sounds to me though that somebody somewhere didn't like that this was going on. Well, let's hope those of us who got our pre-orders in will see something tangible.

    Does anyone really see this happening at this point?

    I mean, it was obviously pulled for some reason and what else could it be but putting a stop to it? Anything else could be worked out behind the scenes before the release date and they would just keep the preorders coming in the meantime.

    I'm debating whether to hang in there for a bit and see what happens or just get my money back now. It's a bit of change to have tied up for who knows how long, when it could be going towards something else.

    The quad was my only reason for ordering this to begin with. I don't need another version in Stereo.

    I'm really interested to see how this is going to be handled. I'm sure they're not just going to press an extremely limited "secret" run just for those of us that were quick enough to already preorder before they shut it down! Haha. CDJapan seems to be somewhat optimistic here but I'm not feeling it.

    Allow me to offer a more optimistic scenario. Perhaps the record label initially had intended to release the title in Stereo-only, but decided to put a hold on it so that they could include the discrete quad content in response to the number of customer inquiries.

    It also could be that the license agreement for this reissue is limited by the number of copies vs. a period of time.
    In that case, it would make sense to stop taking pre-orders once the sales limit is reached.

    Well, at least today, it went from saying "NO PAGE", (or something like that) when I click my order...to this.

    Currently, SACD Multi Hybrid Edition of Simon & Garfunkel "Bridge Over Troubled Water" (SICP-10121) that was listed at this page became unavailable temporarily. As soon as it becomes available for orders again, the item will be listed normally again at this page.

    I checked my account. My order for BOTW remains valid according to CD Japan. So I do not believe that the whole thing is phantom as some have speculated.
