@pttjenkins, that sounds like a unique item. I believe the box was mastered at Abbey Road, so perhaps you ended up with a personal copy of one of the studio staff, or perhaps a test pressing? Would you mind comparing your vinyls to the pictures on my site: http://trodland.com/petraspective/disc-mumfordandsons.html#mumfordandsons2013babelthesinglescollection
Are there any other differences? I would be very interested in seeing scans/pictures of your version. Perhaps I could show them on my site?
Something completely different: I’ve recently finished scanning all my 10″ Mumford vinyl and I will be adding good scans to the site over the next days/weeks.August 6, 2015 at 8:15 pm #4025August 6, 2015 at 8:16 pm #4026

Returned home from my holiday in Scotland expecting to find my Wilder Mind singles set (was dispatched 2 weeks ago) but nothing had arrived! Bit sick of dealing with this new webstore.August 14, 2015 at 9:59 pm #4057
Hi Benj, Any sign of your box set?
I didn’t get a dispatch email. But my box set had been left in the open on my doorstep while I was away in Aviemore. Lucky it was still there when I returned, and it was dry! Not the best service, but at least I have it. This web store does seem a little erratic in its service. Hope it arrives soon, AnnaAugust 15, 2015 at 1:03 pm #4062
Thanks Anna! They advised me to check my local sorting office, which I did this morning. Nothing there. I’ve emailed back but I won’t get a reply until at least Monday now. Looks like there has either been an error with the sender, or it has been lost in transit. I’m sure it will be sorted eventually.August 15, 2015 at 9:05 pm #4068
Don’t even get me started on the webstore! Having had them cancel my order, having dispatched the cd and vinyl. I had to reorder the box set. Shocker I did get a notification and a box set. Just didn’t pay for the previous extremely painful first order. Result!
Hope yours turns up BENJAugust 16, 2015 at 7:39 pm #4071
Thanks for your response! My vinyls look the exact same as yours except for the inscription. The inscriptions were actually email addresses. One was christian@abbeyroad and the other was matt@alchemy. So I emailed them both. Matt Colton from Alchemy Mastering replied and said that he had cut a vinyl for M&S but he didnt have any other info. I still havent found out any other info besides that.August 21, 2015 at 1:26 pm #4102
@pttjenkins Does it like it’s a manual inscription that might’ve been added later? Is it handwritten or printed? It sounds quite weird and I have no idea why these email addresses would be written on there.
I got excellent service from the webstore. I got a shipping notification and the box arrived quite quickly. Unfortunately, they didn’t handle the package carefully during transport and the tin got dented in two places. I wrote to the webstore complaining about they and they sent me a replacement, which arrived yesterday, and which was sent out before I even returned the damaged one today. If I get return shipping refunded, as they promised, this is an excellent job! Haven’t had a chance though to listen to the new song.August 27, 2015 at 1:16 pm #4124
A week after my replacement Wilder Mind 7″ Collectors Set was dispatched… IT STILL HASN’T ARRIVED.
Disgruntled email sent.September 4, 2015 at 6:08 am #4306
Any sign of the box set? Any reply from the store?
AnnaSeptember 4, 2015 at 11:33 am #4326
A week on from the dispatch of the SECOND replacement (3rd set overall) and it has not arrived. I’ve sent another email…
There are no wordsSeptember 4, 2015 at 12:01 pm #4330
Do you think your postman is a fan of the band?
No seriously, it’s such poor service. I really hope it arrives safe & sound very soon.
AnnaSeptember 8, 2015 at 12:58 pm #4363
The store’s solution… give me a refund and pretend the whole thing never happened.
I then told them I don’t want the refund, I want the item and asked if they could send it by a tracked post.
They said if I wanted that, I had to make another order and pay for it, because it costs extra.
I said that considering I’ve waited 6 weeks for the item, and that they had told me last week that they would refund my postage cost but then didn’t actually refund it, it would be reasonable for them to pay the small extra cost for a courier.
So I’m being refunded my £65 but I’ve lost the £4 I paid for postage. Most importantly, I don’t have a box set.
