The highlight was seeing it in the racks in HMV, the lowlight was that that copy stayed in those racks so long I almost bought it myself and I'm guessing they [the label] have a bigger coffee table made from unsold shrink wrapped cd's than we have so I'm not complaining. lol
Wow, I could have written the exact same post with the exception of we convinced the label they should give us the leftover cd's, which I have lugged around with me for the past 10 years. Don't get me wrong, they are being put to practical use - they are holding up other boxes of cd's that were never sold.
