    That Simple Minds set is no longer at that price perhaps because of that warning about it not being as described.

  2. Gwyn says:

    Hi I can’t seem to find any info about the Simplicity n and Garfunkel set being included in pending deals……can you help?

    Also do you think the Paul Simon complete set might turn up this week?


  3. Gwyn says:

    I can’t find any mention of a Simon and Garfunkel deal anywhere – can anyone direct me to it please?

  4. ian s says:

    The Simon & Garfunkel Complete Albums boxset is £20.19 at

  5. Gwyn says:

    My apologies! Not sure what happened in my first post!

  6. Neil says:

    It’s cheaper to buy that Simon & Garfunkel box set on the Amazon marketplace and what’s up with that Simple Minds box set ??

  7. DaveM says:

    The Simon and Garfunkel box was / maybe still is £22 at my local HMV last week in Leeds.

  8. Gwyn says:

    Thanks for the Paul Simon and the S & G tips.
    Think I might hold off for a day two!

  9. Paul Sinclair says:

    Can anyone tell me what the deal price of Slade, a-ha, Elvis and The Who was? I didn’t have internet access when those deals were live, unfortunately. Thanks.

    • Straker says:

      Slade was £74.99 and IIRC Elvis was @£80 so neither were anything special. Alright if you planned to buy anyway but wouldn’t sway a fencesitter.

      • Paul Sinclair says:

        £75 for Slade is good, is it not?

        • Straker says:

          I look at the percentages so 40%+ is where I start getting interested. Some of the DVD sets in these Lightning Deals have been 50/60% off so 25% didn’t strike me as that great. As I said if you were gonna buy it anyway then happy days but those who aren’t that sure might’ve been swayed by a more generous discount.

          • Paul Sinclair says:

            Fair enough, but when you consider that Slade has literally only just come out, I think 25%+ is a decent discount. 40% – 50% on stuff like Nirvana’s Nevermind SDE is more appropriate, because that seems ANCIENT now :)

  10. Kevin K says:

    Slade was £75 – all claimed eventually but percentage was going up and down between 40% and 60% for ages.

  11. Kevin K says:

    … And iirc Elvis was £65.

  12. I finally pulled the trigger on the Simple Minds box, after months of procrastination. It was only after I had paid that I remembered the whole issue with the DVD-A disc!

    Anyway, I was stunned when, after ordering it yesterday morning (25/11) at 9.30am, it arrived this morning! I only paid for regular shipping too!

    Upon opening, I verified the matrix codes on the DVD and am happy to report that the disc is the corrected version, as is the booklet :-)
