Six of the Best: Deals for Christmas

Time to treat the music lover in your life (or yourself) to something cool for the Christmas stocking. Here’s half a dozen deals to take advantage of this festive period. Don’t hang around though the prices tend to change regularly! Click on the image or ‘grab deal’ to go to the deal in question…

Rolling Stones / GRRR! super deluxe  – $39 

We didn’t really like this Rolling Stones 5CD+7″ set much when it was issued back in November 2012, but that was as much to do with the £100 pricing as anything else. At around £25 or $39 it’s easier to look upon it in a kinder light.

> GRAB DEAL  (Amazon US)


Belinda Carlisle / The Collection - £5

Perfect stocking filler for the ’80s pop fan. All Belinda Carlisle‘s hits on CD and a DVD with all the videos.

GRAB THE DEAL (Amazon UK)


Paul Simon / Graceland 25th Anniversary super deluxe - £54

This is the large format Paul Simon super deluxe which was around £80 when it came out a couple of years ago. You get two CDs and two DVDs including the brilliant Under African Skies documentary and this also comes with an 80-page book and lyric pad etc.

Visage / Fade to Grey Orchestral

We do like a maxi-single here at SDE, and now that they are few and far between it’s always good to highlight a release that might be of interest. The Steve Strange fronted Visage are following up 2013′s comeback Hearts and Knives with a new album Orchestral, due to be released next week. A eight-track CD single of their most celebrated song Fade To Grey has recently been released to give you a feel for the new album.
