It comes from overseas and takes time to arrive. It was finally shipped on October 30th, but I still haven't received anything yet. The page on the website still indicates its arrival would be Friday, even though Friday has come and gone. I have season tickets to our local broadway theatre and will be seeing Miss Saigon this season. It is indeed Region Free.
I don't know why they got rid of this beautiful gem of a song and replaced it with an empty, boring piece of garbage that made no sense. No damage to the jewel case or item cover, no scuffs, scratches, cracks, or holes.

Mine was supposed to have arrived on Friday, yet still hasn't. I'm glad I was wrong! The Blu-Ray itself is being released on Oct 24!
