  2. Hi Paul, I’ve always been aware of Captain Beefheart but never tried listening. Bought this box set last week after seeing it on your site and am well chuffed I took the plunge. Currently £75 on the Rough Trade site so feeling very pleased. Thanks for keeping us all posted on the deals, much appreciated.

    Had a finger poised on the ‘buy’ button for the Rammstein vinyl box set for ages, cramp setting in now

  5. voxstarstream says:

    I purchased this the last time it went on deal. So far I’ve only listened to the first album (“Lick My Decals Off, Baby” but everything sounded fine. Good quality pressing, good mastering.

  6. Paul Wren says:

    Rats – it’s £44 now. What a bargain it briefly was………………………

  7. Peter Siree says:

    Anybody diving in for The Complete Chris Bell vinyl box set? It’s £65.99 now on amazon uk, 40% off. Pull the trigger? or wait? It is a very expensive box.

  13. Anselm Lee says:

    Although I was too late for this deal, I ended up finding superb deals for two other boxes I have been looking to get, the Verve’s Urban Hymns vinyl box and Dylan’s Trouble No More vinyl box, at great prices.

  14. Rico says:

    Seems to be gone. Curse the time difference (I’m in Australia). I should never go to sleep.

  15. David Regan says:

    Just ordered on Amazon UK and then had an email saying expected Delivery date 31 Jan to 15 Feb so I checked my order on My Amazon Account and it’s arriving 2 days short of a month..the longest I’m gonna wait for A Super Deluxe Edition Website Amazon Deal..even though I’m a prime member..hope they change the delivery date to a nearer date.. great price..as the CD box set is £53 pound new.

  16. Mark McKendrick says:

    That’s a stupendous price.
    Makes you wonder what the profit margins are like for people selling single albums at much the same price.

  17. stephen says:

    Hello. Some fairly negative comments on Amazon about the sound quality. I know it’s a bargain, but does anyone know how good/bad it really sounds?

    • stephen says:

      I bought the thing anyway… So much for the New Year’s Resolution!

      Paul, do you know whether the bonus tracks are exclusive to this release?

  18. Hugh says:

    In for 1. $30 shipped, or roughly the price of a single LP in at a brick and mortar here. Thanks Paul.

  19. Jed. says:
