19 MARCH, UPDATE: I’ve just heard from Mute Records. The U.S. release dates for the four Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds Reissues is now May 5th. Here are the links from Amazon.com for each individual album:
PRICES: $16.98 US per album, buy 3 for $50.94. They are taking pre-orders BUT their page still shows the April 7 release date, which is wrong, according to Mute. Again, US release date has been pushed back to MAY 5th. (post edited, 26 March 09 2:38 pm – mw)
