I noticed on Amazon the 3 reissues are listed for Sept 30. Did I miss something along the way? I thought it was Aug 5th? I am really looking forward to these.

I've learned that companies don't like to ship vinyl during August due to heat and possible product damage. By the end of September most of the country has cooled of enough for safe passage.

Note on the delay of the
vinyl reissues from the official Jayhawks blog (http://jayhawksofficial.tumblr.com/post/93512140953/vinyl-release-date-for-reissues-delayed-until-september)

As CaffeineZombie's links note, the issue is a vinyl pressing backlog due to limited pressing capacity that has affected the whole industry. Nothing to do with weather.

Ah. Assumption made on my part. I'm waiting for another vinyl record. they'll ship it now, but it's at the buyer's risk. Or they'll ship in September. Thought that might have been the issue here.
