B.B. King & Eric Clapton / Riding With The King SACD

This hybrid SACD from audiophile specialists Audio Fidelity was issued back in July. Although the GRAMMY winning album (issued in 2000) isn’t here in 5.1 surround sound, audio engineer Steve Hoffman has handled the stereo remastering using original analog session mixes, bypassing the digital cutting master from which all other released versions have been created. These releases are normally £25-ish so this is a complete bargain.

David Bowie / "The Next Day": 2CD+DVD collectors edition

David Bowie / The Next Day Extra

While we wait for Blackstar, David Bowie‘s previous album, The Next Day, is unfeasibly cheap on Amazon UK in its special edition 2CD+DVD guise. Includes remixes, loads of extra tracks and all the videos.

The Proclaimers / Sunshine on Leith (2CD deluxe)

astral_weeks

Van Morisson / Astral Weeks expanded remaster

October’s reissue of Van Morisson‘s 1968 classic was admittedly a modest affair with just four bonus tracks, but it feels churlish to grumble when this is less than £5.

Toto / Live in Poland (2CD)

The two-CD edition of Toto‘s 2013 35th anniversary concert is £15 on Amazon UK but almost £10 less on Amazon France

timelessflight

The Moody Blues / Timeless Flight (2CD)

The 17-disc version of this 2013 Moody Blues retrospective was one of the more excessive box sets in recent years. This two-CD reduction still boasts 37 tracks and enough rarities to keep it interesting.

Led Zeppelin / Celebration Day

Led Zeppelin / Celebration Day blu-ray audio

A blu-ray audio of the 2007 Led Zeppelin concert. This features no video content, just the entire gig in 5.1 uncompressed PCM, DTS MA 5.1 and stereo PCM, all in 48khz/24bit hi-resolution audio.

(£8 on Amazon Italy)


neilyoung_massey

Neil Young / Live at Massey Hall (CD+DVD)

This 2007 release is still one of the best of Neil Youngs ‘Performance Series’ thanks to the 17-track set from 1971 containing so much great material from Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, After The Gold Rush and Harvest. The DVD boasts video footage and other historical clips.

    i don’t know of any audiophile who doesn’t love a music sale, but i feel like i’m being at times punished (for purchasing items as they’re originally released) when i see some of these prices. of course, this is the point at which you ask if i wish i’d have waited and i respond: “hell no!”

    Anyone in the US with a Prime membership can get Astral Weeks for $10.

    If you like Toto you may be better off with the recently released 3-disc Ultimate Toto for only £6. Of the dozens and dozens of Toto comps out there this one probably covers the most ground.

    Once postage is added to the 3 disc The Wall Experience Edition from Amazon in Spain it is actually cheaper to buy from Amazon UK.
