I have number 24
Just curious - where did you get yours? I am done ordering directly from EAR Music. They make me wait far too long for my orders, and then when it comes, I wind up with #6,119.
Wow, I was concerned that when my # was less than 1300 that the Ep wasn't selling well. I got mine from
HotShot Records in Germany & although it took a couple of weeks after it shipped (w/o any Tracking Info), it arrived 1 week before the their window of 3 weeks plus it showed up in good condition & well packaged. They may have pre-ordered many cases but, I would suppose that HotShot wouldn't have stuck their necks out for more than they thought could reasonably move, even though they ship Internationally.
Thanks. That's interesting!

Truly, my beef is the wait. EAR Music has made me wait weeks past the release date for the last three orders. It seems as if they wait to ship until the day of release, as opposed to having the customer receive the product on, or near, the release date. I know - wahh-wahh-wahh. Still, it's kind of maddening.
Not that it helps you, but mine from Earmusic turned up day of release, as did 'Rise'.

"Paranormal" was the one that made me anxious. "Rise" is the one that made we aware. "Breadcrumbs" is the one that made me mad. Maybe they need North American representation? You're it, Si!

Unless you have No 1 the numbers thing doesn't mean that much. I believe Ringo had the No 1 White album. Why is this being shipped from Germany isn't it a U.S. Release?
Halfway through November & I just just received an e-mail to rate HotShot Records(Germany) from Amazon (after I logged in Amazon denied me because I didn't meet the threshold for a review).
I rechecked Domestic US distributers & found the Ep (vinyl) available at 3 sites now. However, as the price did vary by a couple of dollars per site - not all that much better than shipping from Germany!
I got the disc well ahead of the projected window but would have taken the digital download ahead of the eventual U.S. vinyl release! ::((: I found it difficult to resist the digital over the vinyl in the 1st place but since I had recently acquired "Sealed" vinyl (& a new turntable to boot!). I felt a numbered Ep was a collectable option I shouldn't pass up. :HEART:

Good to see that Earmusic is getting close to the 20,000 limit. As a collectable your # is closer to what collectors look for but, in a limited run any # has more value.
How long after release was the purchase for your daughter?
I hope she enjoys the Ep as much as you do! :clap:

Decided to listen to it again tonight as despite the fact I liked it I hadn't played any of it for a while and had forgotten all of it. A bad sign for me.

Re-listened and enjoyed again but less than am hour later I decided to listen to Paranormal in preference. Interesting..

No, I think it's "Hamtramck".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamtramck,_Michigan

The Hamtramck town flag features a man with a big hammer on his shoulder, and there is mention of a huge industrial Hammer at the car factory that used to make local buildings shake. There's also a vague reference to a baseball player with that nickname possibly. Also a few local businesses use "Hammer" in their name.
If anyone can find a authorative source for the term I'd like to know, as all the above are somewhat vague.

A couple of days ago I was in a local music shop (Foppish) which has just announced it is closing down and found 4 copies of Breadcrumbs. Can't remember the precise numbers but there were two consecutive numbers @ 6000 one @11000 and one @14000. Surprised to see such a spread of numbers and now wondering how well sales have gone overall.

HMV in Chester still has 3 copies left and the one in Reading has 1 left, again, all around the 6000 region.
I bought my copies (4 currently, long story) from Both of these HMV’s and obviously they haven’t sold any since then. So perhaps the physical sales have been poor.
