STILL WAITING ! ! !
Ordered and paid for in February 2015 but nothing to show for it. Also waiting on the vinyl version of Skatisfaction.
Have tried to get updates via email, facebook etc etc but no response.
Just checked the Happy People Records bandcamp page and the vinyl is no longer listed!
How hard can it be to get an update ! ! ! ! !

Here is the update I received back on the 20th July -

"Apologies for the delay in getting this to you. Sadly there hasnít been the uptake yet on this LP, so Iím not sure if itís going to happen. That coupled with the pressing plant stopping doing smaller runs has made it to expensive to do. I will make a decision on it before the end of the week and let you know. Someone has suggested running a short pledge campaign to raise the money in a last attempt to see if itíll work or not.

Which Skatisfaction did you order? The first press (I think there may be a couple of them left) or the second press (same problem as the Dexys album).

Kind regards,
Sean"

Since then nothing more . . . When I suggested I post the update on here I was asked not to -

"If you could keep it off Specials forum for now thatíd be great. Iíll definitely know by the end of the week what weíre doing, so will post up then."

Come on Sean, sort it out for these people, you have put some other posts on today after the one above, so you might of seen the latest post - so at least give the people who have paid their money in good faith an update.

Just checked my PayPal account. I have been refunded for the Skatisfaction vinyl but nothing yet for Young Ska Rebels.

Guess they are not happening . . .

Sean can I have a refund for this vinyl now please. Too long now and no updates forthcoming. The last time I ever shell out in advance for music.

Hi all,

Despite our best efforts to get this release out there, there simply hasn't been enough demand for it. Usually this wouldn't be an issue but with the amount of albums we're working through it's meant we simply don't have the funds right now to press it on vinyl.

We are going to give it one last go and launch a short pledge campaign next week.

If you've already order the LP and are happy to wait a little longer then thank you very much for your support.

If you'd just like a refund I totally understand. Please just email me at sean@pamainternational.co.uk with the paypal reciept or date and email address you used to buy the record and I'll refund you straight away.

Is the Skatisfaction vinyl still happening? I have been refunded for this but i see it is still on your bandcamp page for sale.

Hope more people get behind the releases.

I am willing to wait a little longer Sean to see if you can garner more interest.
BUT.
Update us on a more regular basis especially if a question is asked please.
