No need to worry yet. Jamaica post apparently waits until there is a full container of airmail before shipping so deliveries could sometimes be rather slow. Remember I waited more than two months a few years ago due to a bad ass hurricane hitting Jamaica but eventually everything arrived. So in my experience, Jamaica Post is "slow but sure" as Eek-A-Mouse would say...

On the other hand, not to alarm you, I have heard of packages being drilled into to see if any white powder comes out. hopefully that's not a current practice.

well personally, I just received a package in fine condition this week of 3 7" from JA and they arrived pretty quickly for the cheapest shipping service.

that said, I am still waiting on a single 12" from JA that I paid for on june 27th, and have recently been in contact with the seller and am not worried; this is a more typical speed of delivery.

all that said, I hope the 12" record arrives in fine form. one of the more recent purchases I had from JA arrived with the dreaded awl pokes in the package--deep enough to damage the record on both sides. such an archaic way to check for drugs, etc.

usually it takes 40/50 days to arrive in Europe from Jamaica, one time i had waited even 3 (!!!) months.
just be patient, you'll have your package

I ordered from joespinner as well in the past several time (from Jamaica to Holland) it takes about 4 to 5 weeks.

It takes on average 8 weeks (experienced that with various different sellers, so it's not that someone is very slow with posting it) to order something from Canada btw.
