Dear SPRC Members,

We want to thank you again for preordering through SmashingPumpkins.com.

Late last fall you pre-ordered a physical product of either Gish or Siamese Dream from us that did not arrive in a timely manner. We apologize again and want you to know we have changed distributors and there should never be a delay such as this again.

We have created a surprise Flexidisc especially for you. In order to receive this you will need to enter your order number and go through the completely free, $0 \"purchase\" process to confirm your address with us. Please order your Flexidisc here.

Please fill out your info ASAP as we will close orders for this product at midnight PST on Monday April 30th, 2012. Please note that this is a limited offer for those who pre-ordered physical product before November 28th of 2011 and your order number will be needed. You can find your order number in your original receipt.

Thank you for your continued support!

SPRC is doing her best to satisfy her customers, obviously.

Cool gift, that flexi! Wonder what’s on it.

I hope that I get one…it just won’t be directly from SPRC :(

On that note, does anyone want to give/sell me their order number so I can get the flexi?

ah yes, i also hope i’ll end up acquiring this.

but who is entitled to a copy straight from sprc/topspin?
surely some freaks must’ve preordered the reissues? or are we all too smart for that?

I ordered them from Amazon, that was slightly cheaper… So no flexi for me. Not that I’m interested anyway, but I’m sure many are. It IS a cool gift for saying sorry by surprise.

I won’t know for sure until two show up at my doorstep, but I have two confirmation emails with two distinct order numbers. Which makes me slightly doubt that I’ll even receive one. But here’s to optimism.

Also, I don’t expect this to bring in much money, but that may depend what is actually on it. I’ve never been a big fan of flexis. They are cheap and flimsy and low-fi. I doubt this was produced on a flexi for any other reason than it was a cheap method. Makes sense, can’t blame anyone for that.

I am glad, however, to receive such a neat gift, that is right up my alley.

I will stop talking now.

looks like i’m also getting a copy of this for free, even though i didn’t pre-order anything.

i just tried to apply for the flexi with an order number i had from buying one of the digital downloads, and it worked. it’s in the mail now. :P
so paying for digital downloads instead of downloading them for free from somewhere else is now finally worth it.

i have no idea. i guess not, but who knows what they check, and what they don’t check.

more bad news: i believe you had to apply for the flexi before the first of may.
i can’t remember where i got the link to apply, and i can’t find it anymore. so i can’t check if it’s still working, or if they already took it down.

Congrats! I understand the single sided orange flexi has a new song called ‘Blissed’

I hope that with 5000 copies floating around I should be able to get one fairly easily…..I hope…..

yup, two copies arrived, just as i thought. i think topspin just filled any order that came in, because of the limited time window of 4 days and also because there is no way 5,000 people would go through the hassle even if it was free.

so yeah, i have two, but i think i could easily have \"ordered\" 10, with no questions asked.

I think the music community at large respects him and the rest of the Beasties because not only were they pioneers, but they tried to make a difference.

I created a new one, i did not delete old one and did not ask anyone to. I got locked out of it somehow, my password would not work.
