Folks, when I ordered the hardcover edition of Ernst Jorgensen's great book A Life In Music - The Complete Recording Sessions
at the Official Elvis Online Store (http://www.shopelvis.com/shop.php
) I was happy to have found this rare edition. The price of 34.99 $ seemed reasonable to me since I couldn't find the hardcover edition anywhere else. The offer disappeared from the website immediately after I had placed my order so I thought they didn't have another copy of it in stock and I was happy enough to get the last hardcover edition available!
What a disappointment when the book finally arrived today (badly packaged by the way for an international and oversea shipment) and it contained the softcover version that I already have. But folks, the best is yet to come: There's a price tag on the backside saying 18.99 $ with a new price tag stuck on this saying 34.99 $! LOL! The price at Amazon Germany is 18.50 EUR and 13.57(!) $ at Amazon.com.
Almost one third of what the Elvis Online Store charges. I can't believe it. Advertised for the hardcover edition, couldn't deliver, didn't tell me a thing about it and made the replacement as expensive as the original article would have been. How impertinent is this, please??
Man, I was expecting a bunch of cynics working at EPE and anything Elvis related but this here is really heavy IMO. I'm so upset ...
