Deal alert / Alan Parsons Project: Tales Of Mystery and Imagination box set

Excellent price this morning on Amazon Italy for The Alan Parsons Project‘s Tales of Mystery and Imagination 40th anniversary super deluxe edition box set.

This set was issued in December last year and includes the album half-speed mastered and cut at 45RPM across two 180g vinyl records; a 5.1 surround sound mix on blu-ray audio (which also features a hi-res stereo version); three CDs which feature the original 1976 mix, the 1987 remix and over 70 mins of previously unreleased  bonus material and a 60-page ‘coffee table’ book with photos and new interviews. On top of all that you get a reproduction of the original album poster, a replica 1976 press kit and a tape-man sticker. Grab all that for just £58 (€66) on the Italian site right now (09.40 GMT, 13/3/17). That’s almost a £20 saving over the UK price.

    The UK price was waaay too expensive before… The current Italian price is a bit more manageable. Thanks Paul. :)

    Amazon Italy has some great deals lately. I also bought the JM Jarre Oxygene box from there after one of Paul’s Deal Alerts. Good stuff.

  9. Kauwgompie says:

    Paul, the price compare tool shows the price for Amazon USA as $66 but when you click on the link it is $83. It was $63 yesterday (when I bought it) but now its $83.

  10. Brent says:

    Some good discounts on box sets from Amazon Italy until end of April, just picked up Fleetwood Mac Mirage (37 Euro after Tax) and Mother Love Bone (25 Euro after Tax), massive savings on both.

  11. Julian H says:

    A shame this doesn’t use a new (and better) remastering on the CDs.
