From Domino:

Hello, everyone. We're glad to announce a small window for folks to get one last crack at ordering a copy of our sold out Go-Betweens box G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One. While we were pleasantly overwhelmed by the response the first time around at how quickly we sold out, we realize that there were folks out there that either got lured in by legitimate-looking offers from other online stores or simply found out about the box after we had sold out of our initial run. We've also seen a bit of Keynesian profiteering on remaining demand and want to alleviate some of that pressure as well.

SO. we are opening a very small AND FINAL window within which you can order a copy of the box set, "G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One." You have until the end of the day September 13th to place a order. Orders will be shipping by the end of November, in case you're wondering about holiday gift-giving for that special Go-Betweens fan in your life (hint, hint), yes it would arrive in a timely manner.
