Michael English “Live at Daywind Studios” Release….??

UPDATE 2/12/2016: Apparently the DVD’s ordered direct from Michael English’s website have indeed been shipped and received. The question remains, however, about the status of the title in retail.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: One of the more publicized releases for the first quarter of 2016 has been Michael English’s first-ever live DVD, the aptly-titled Live at Daywind Studios. Shot last summer, it was originally scheduled for an October 2015 release, but the release was pushed back to January 29th, 2016 (coincidentally, the same day that another Gaither Vocal Band alumnus, Guy Penrod, released HIS first live DVD). A promo video was assembled and released on YouTube around Christmas, and artwork was revealed through his Facebook Street Team, with lots of hype behind it.

January 29th came and went, and the DVD didn’t hit store shelves, at least not in my neck of the woods. When we tried to pick up a copy at Family Christian (who carries English’s recent Worship project), we were told that it a CD was found in the system, but not a DVD, and it was only available as a special order (the order has been placed, but has not yet arrived). FC’s website lists the DVD as special order only, as well.

A check at other online retailers gives varying results. ChristianBook.com has it listed as a CD/DVD combo, but with a release date of February 19th. LifeWay Christian Stores doesn’t even list the project, and Springside lists it as relasing on its January 29th date, with no indication that it’s been delayed (and even includes song samples).

Daywind does show 3906 copies available direct from their website, so maybe that’s the best way to order it (especially for their price-point of $14.99). They also have a press release on their Facebook page (which was also sent out via Absolutely Gospel) saying that the album is available at Christian retailers, although it does not mention a specific release date. Also of note is that the PR states that it will be available via iTunes and other digital outlets. Since this is a CD/DVD combo, I’m guessing just the audio CD will be available digitally (although the PR is not clear on this point, and as of yet, the latest release from English on any digital retailer that I’ve seen so far is Worship).

Michael English’s website stated around the release date that DVD shipments had been delayed due to a winter storm that hit the Nashville area (where Daywind is based), and that shipments had been sent out as of February 6th, so maybe it was just a delay overall.

Has anyone gotten their copy of this CD/DVD combo yet?

    Plenty of his fans have received the DVD/CD combo. Not sure about retail outlets as I did not need to go and try to find it. He has sent out all of his pre-orders and autographed them as well.

    Got my combo DVD/CD last week. I had ordered it thru English (and evidently paid a premium price I learned today). Used a couple cuts off the CD on my radio program (WNNT, Warsaw, VA, realradio804.com) last Sunday. Have not watched the DVD yet.

    It is printed on the case that Michael English’s website is http://www.michaelenglish.com …… NOT. His site is http://www.michaelenglishmusic.com and the site where I ordered the product. Things like an incorrect website URL drive me crazy, but I may be the “one in a million”. That’s what my wife tells me, lol.

    From the comments so far, it appears no one has seen it in an actual retail store or for sale on a non-artist/non-Daywind website yet.

    …which begs the question. Why not?

    Pushing a release date later happens from time to time, but you’d think after the first delay, they’d have a more solid plan in place. Sure, some product might have shipped late due to the snow storm and all, but they should be caught up by now.
