Decca told me the Backhaus box "does not have a confirmed release date" (their words). They didn't say it was delayed.
Again, why not having a "confirmed release date" suggests to you, or
makes you worry, or whatever, that it won't be released at all is
completely beyond me. They started this project with the intent of
releasing it. It is much more likely, it seems to me, that technical,
copyright or other glitches will cause a delay, than a cancellation.
Say it doesn't have a confirmed release date simply means they can't set
a release date yet. It's not the first time something like this happens.
If the project is, in fact, cancelled, feel free you say, "I told you so."
