So it doesn't come with the explanation booklet. That's a bummer. Still a cool boxset, though.
So I've just received the deluxe cd bookset and I've got to be honest, I'm a confused. Based on this post https://www.facebook.com/RadicalFace/photos/a.10150589161685476.430016.37239635475/10154487190510476/?type=3&theater I thought this was going to be a lot more than just the four cds with lyric booklet. I'm obviously more than happy to support Ben and I just consider this purchase that, but just wondering if we are ever going to see the explanations as part of this box set or is that just gone on the website now.
Really? ohh that's a bit disappointing. I also was expecting the explanation book based on the same Facebook post. Wonder when the books will be available...
i'll try and score a book for you at his show next week. i assume he is selling it there. Where do you live?
I agree-- I feel let down with the box set as well. That same FB post had me thinking there would be some sort of extra book or cd insert that explains the Family Tree content. To add injury, the blue logo box that houses the cd books was beat up and damaged from UPS shipping and now functions like a paper bag :'-(
Yep the box for mine is damaged as well. I don't want to be disappointed, but kind of can't help it as I don't even need the cds, I don't even have a cd player at this point. Thanks skibo for the offer, but I'll be going to the May 12 show so I'm good in that regard.
I feel you Loringpark. I didn't need the cds either :-/ I would love a book from the shows...if he'd ever play in his Jacksonville, FL hometown! If anyone's willing, I'd be happy to pay for the book, shipping and troubles <3
Same here, box was a bit damaged and also expecting a mini version of book. I also didn't buy the book at the concert because I thought I was getting it here. Happy to support Ben. Just hope he will sell the book and vinyl box separately.
yep same here looked like it had just been thrown in. from what i thought would be a book and cds is not what i got so not that impressed with it i know the words for the songs
I am also a little sad as I was hoping for a book of additional explanations. And the packaging left quite a bit to be desired... I couldn't make the UK shows so I guess I'll have to live without the book - unless it becomes available in the webstore (hint hint) :)
I really hope Ben will sell the vinyl book cover plus guide book separately as I already own all albums on vinyl. If he won't sell the guide book, I'm hoping for a PDF at least.
Was $25 at the show. I should've picked up a copy for one of you
My friend and I were also completely convinced that the book would come with the cd box set, but so far only the cds have arrived, maybe they'll ship the books later? Did anyone else think the description of the box set that is in the web store now is different than it was before?
Description of the family tree journal changed. It mentioned a secret message and there is nothing
If the description was anything like the above mentioned FB link that made it sound like a book was included, then that's some bait-and-switch BS. Not cute. Not saying it's Ben's fault--there could be a number of miscommunications and mistakes between artist and merchandise management, but it is deceiving in the end.
Same as most of you - was expecting the book as well as the CDs based on Ben's FB post. In fact, I only ordered the box set after I saw the post as I wasn't sure until then whether it included the book. The CDs booklets are great but the damaged box is also a little disappointing.
I know this is kinda old, but I just noticed the guidebook and other things like the journal and T-shirt are now available to buy separately on the store.
Thanks you so much calli :) I have ordered this just now
No problem :) :)
Yeah but with shipping I ended up paying twice the cost for the book :(
