Perhaps one should look for other threads that may have been started before asking such a question? :) :)

If it gives us some extras we haven’t seen or heard before why not?

$100
Change Currency
Pre-Order Now

Box Set containing:

Double Disc DVD. The film DVD is mastered from Tony Palmer’s original 2" masters. This is for the first time these masters have ever been used. The second disc contains extra material specially edited by 200 Motels original director – Tony Palmer.

Double sound track CD

36 page A4 full colour book put together by Tony Palmer including a specially written essay by Tony for this project.

I just went for the 2 DVD for the extra material ($32 US) - hope it is worth it...

Clue #1: He can't fix your brakes.

Clue #2: He never be workin' when he oughta should.

Clue #3: He'll rush on over and wreck it some more.

If you go here:

https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/fr ... 200-motels

You get this:

“A winding up order was made against Pledgemusic.com Limited in the High Court of Justice on 31 July 2019.

As a result of the making of the order, the Official Receiver becomes liquidator of the company. Any enquiries should be forwarded to LondonB.OR@insolvency.gov.uk, quoting reference LQD5671373.”

Pledgemusic is bankrupt. Kaput. Finis. Tits up. :(

If you paid any money for the following (posted elsewhere):

“200 Motels Box Set - $100 - Box Set containing:

Double Disc DVD. The film DVD is mastered from Tony Palmer’s original 2" masters. This is for the first time these masters have ever been used. The second disc contains extra material specially edited by 200 Motels original director – Tony Palmer.

…you’re probably out the money.

Wonderful. Fucked again. :(

I was lucky - I went to my bank back in July and filed a dispute and got my money back. Overseas charges on your credit card USUALLY have a 6 month period where you can challenge a charge. I lost money on two older orders from Pledge. O well - NEVER order before a project is completed.

I believe Steve Vai is dealing with the Pledgemusic bankruptcy fallout as well regarding the release of the new Generation Axe cd. Some unhappy fans I guess who signed up early for the VIP treatment.
