Deal alert: R.E.M. / 7IN-83-88 box

remdeal

7in-83-88 is an R.E.M. seven-inch vinyl box that collects the I.R.S. single releases over 11 vinyl records. It’s a lovely set, but has been over £80 for ages which I know has put many people off buying. Today it has finally had a price reduction on Amazon UK that makes it a more attractive proposition.

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.
