I was just going to post this! Another Target exclusive that no one gets told about!
Why can’t they tell us when it first goes on pre-sale?

Thanks for the info!

I'm with you, Nancy.  These bonus tracks are always a surprise to everybody.  We all know Joe said 4 or 5 albums ago he wasn't going to do the bonus tracks anymore!  Just irks me!  Especially when we do pre-order...

  Ugh, I knew it would be a Target version right after I watched conversation with Alice video. it has target logo splashed all over it. Why target, that glorified wolmart shack, why not Barnes&Noble for example....  PS: target scarf around Joe's neck back in January https://www.instagram.com/p/B7jRuc6J3RK/ #ProductPlacement smile

Re: Royal Tea 23 October 2020

I've been waiting to see if I could preorder the special edition from Target and select "in-store pickup" instead of paying shipping.  I noticed yesterday it was removed from my cart as "out of stock" and I didn't see the special edition available anymore.  That's a shame, but hopefully it'll be possible to get either the special edition or the bonus tracks separately.

(Royal tea)
Story about my past and future
(Royal tea)
Had to bow to kiss her
I done give you life
All first class
Let you make your own photographs
Chandeliers and crazy cars
Paid in full with my guitars

(Royal tea)
Wake up in your garden
(Royal tea)
Champagne from the fountain
Bring me back, keep me gone
Reel me in and waste my life all the time
Royal tea

(Royal tea)
And check out your future
(Royal tea)
Gettin' away with murder
Breaking hearts 'round this town
Making fools of all your clowns
Razor's edge, my life's a beam
The likes of which you've never seen

(Royal tea)
Wake up in your garden
(Royal tea)
Champagne from the fountain
Bring me back, keep me gone
Reel me in and waste my life all the time
Royal tea

(Royal tea)
Wake up in your garden
(Royal tea)
Champagne from the fountain
Hiding out in your palace
Diamonds dripping from your chalice
The honey's sweet but the bees will sting
At the door of your reckoning

(Royal tea)
Wake up in your garden
(Royal tea)
Champagne from the fountain
Bring me back, keep me gone
Reel me in and waste my life all the time
Royal tea

Re: Royal Tea 23 October 2020

I pre-ordered using my Target card couple of months ago, got free shipping plus they gave me the "standard" 5% off..
win win..

but I do loose.. I am having it shipped to my brothers house in Buffalo (shipping to Canada was stupid price).. but the borders are closed and will be for some time to come.. we're heading back towards total lock down again

"Why Does It Take So Long To Say Goodbye"

Tired of running
I've seen these times before
Desperation
Our candle burns no more
Everything we know
Takes us so far away
Trace your steps back
Don't let 'em guide your way

When I leave
Oh, I leave for good
No coming back
Like you said I would
You crossed the line
Why does it take so long to say goodbye?
Every time

I'm just a castaway
Cast out into the sea
Another rainy night
Tears from the endless fights
Oh, I carried you
Carried you on my own
So take the love you've had
And pretend you always know

When I leave
Oh, I leave for good
No coming back
Like you said I would
You crossed the line
Why does it take so long to say goodbye?
Every time
Say goodbye
Every time

When I leave
Oh, I leave for good
No coming back
Like you said I would
You've crossed the line
Why does it take so long to say goodbye?
Every time
Say goodbye
Every time, yeah...

Although it is a favorable and praising review it made me laugh out laud. Oh, beautiful and intricate use of language ahaha

Re: Royal Tea 23 October 2020

thanks for lyrics!!!


i just was going to preorder from Target....PRE-ORDERS SOLD OUT there....uggh
it says check back release date

i hope to pick up in the store on the 23rd but in the past, even though their system indicates a particular store has X in stock, it doesn't mean they are actually there...one time i had to ask and a stock person found them in the back.
Looking forward to the bonus tracks. I did the live stream thing where i will get digital download. I'll still try to stop by target if possible that day

Re: Royal Tea 23 October 2020

looks like its back available for preorder at Target. I am going to order a few so if anyone out of the US wants I can figure how much it would be to ship.
The cd is on sale for 13.99 right now and usually for at least the first week or so IIRC

Re: Royal Tea 23 October 2020

Cool, thanks for the heads up.  I'm going to take my chances trying to get the special edition in the store on Oct 23... hopefully they have a copy or two, or they offer (free) in-store pickup pretty soon.

Re: Royal Tea 23 October 2020

Thanks Jane, yes I just saw the Target sale price on-line.  Had to look for it though, the full-priced item pops up automatically.

But it said no in-store pick up is available for the pre-order (maybe just my store?), and the shipping was $6.00...nope!

Re: Royal Tea 23 October 2020

thanks...i just looked, it says not yet available for pick up. I think once the release date hits, it would be. IDK if the regular version would be available for in store purchase but I think the bonus edition would be...a few per store is what happened with Redemption. I guess in store pick up means just pick up order in store or curbside, which could just be ship to store not in store.  And still on sale for at least a week I think but just guessing. I ordered a few and got free shipping.

I also ordered this copy of SILT they had...it showed the pic of the SILT with ANDY live dvd edition...that was the original stock photo and i know ebay users have mistakenly used it when selling the just cd version. Anyway I don't expect the special edition but I was too curious and I had to order just in case. Can't have too many copies of SILT IMHO smile

edited to add : not worth a new post but i got the copy of SILT today...just the SILT...what i figured but was worth a try

Re: Royal Tea 23 October 2020

Since it's release day, i was able to order the special edition at target and now get free in-store pickup.  I was going to drive out to Target at noon and check it out, but hard to know if they'd have it in stock since I'm sure each location has very few copies, if they're carrying it in-store at all. Fingers crossed, really looking forward to blasting it in the car on the drive home.
