Ever since the announcement about the forthcoming Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band reissues, the Best Buy site slowly but surely were listing the different formats that would be available. First it was the single CD, then the two-record vinyl edition, then the 2-CD deluxe edition...always missing was the 6-disc super deluxe edition. When it was finally listed, it wouldn't us allow to pre-order the box...it would say "coming soon." That message was there as late as Monday night (5/8/17.) How in the WORLD could an album that quickly sell out after just 24-36 hours later. How many copies were you set to receive to sell...3...maybe even 1. This is totally ridiculous...will you be receving more...or again, similar to the McCartney Flowers in the Dirt set, am I gonna have to buy this from Amazon. This isn't some independent release where the availability might be limited...this is from UME, a BIG corporation which can press as many of these sets as possible...I await your reply...

Like you, I've been waiting patiently for this release to be added to BestBuy.com so I can pre-order it too. I've been frustrated myself over the leisurely and ambiguous manner the various versions of this title have been added. I regret that you've shared my experience.
It appears there are now four versions of the album -- one is vinyl and the other three are CD editions -- that have been listed as "50th Anniversary Edition," but without supporting descriptions and product details. I have reported this issue and hope to be able to offer some clarification shortly. Your patience in the interim is appreciated.
Please know I'm grateful you wrote to us.
