I've been going to different recordshops here in the Netherlands for the past week. (Well, the few that actually still sell singels).

NONE have it in stock and ALL tell me it won't come either. (Unless you place a personal order.)

Good going EMI/Bertus!
And thanks for wasting my lunchbreaks!

I've had no problems with buying whatsoever.

I haven't been interested, and the stores haven't been selling it. That's the perfect balance if you ask me. ;)

Try your local independent stores, they should have it. i got the 7" p/disc for £1.99.
They had at least five or six other copies as well as the cd single

Alternatively, Eil.com have it for £4.99 plus p+p.

Most independant record shops over here do not sell singles anymore! (If they EVER did)

And I did not order it at the QOL or FC or whatever, because those sales do not get counted for the charts. I wanted to support Queen and Hannie's request to all buy the single in the same week in a shop and therefore (since sales of singles are near to nill nowadays) get it in the charts and FORCE radio stations to play it.
(Which they off course have not. QPR is non-excisting if you listen to Dutch radio).

The only decent record shops in Holland are second hand ones from my experience. Where do people buy new releases there? "Free Record Shops" are crap - do you have to go to independent dealers?

She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

Yes, the independant ones are the only ones worthy of lifting your foot to get past the doorstep. THAT's where we go to buy new cd's and vinyl. (And *I* hop over to Germany a lot for this)

Unfortunately one after another is closing down business...

Independants round round where I live don't sell singles...
Free Fucking Record (RECORD??? They only sell games nowadays!) shop doesn't stock...

QOL???
What a fucking joke!

Same thing everyt time I order something with them. Wether it's tickets or merchandise, I just don't seem to get it.

After exchanging e-mails for WEEKS already, I still don't have this.
Pfff... I still don't even have the Cosmos rocks album!!!!
(And you know what, I don't even want it no more! The 'exclusive tour edition' is a waste. I'd rather go buy the much nicer looking (and cheaper!) double disc version in some shitty shop.

Bring back the record stores of the 70's, where you could listen to albums and burn one with the manager. 
And they always had plenty of copies of what you wanted.



 



But for these, the otts, on-line is where you have to go.



 



As far as I know, Amazon.com has never been out of stock of anything.

I got my C-lebrity single CD and 7" vinyl and the tour edition CD from QOL.. Only time they've been any good. I'm not being smart but I had no problem with this at all.







We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.
